LED vs OLED Monitors: Which monitor is better?

LED vs OLED Monitors

LED vs OLED Monitors Difference

The difference between LED and OLED monitors lies in the light emitting principle, structure and screen thickness, display effect, and service life. In terms of the principle of light emission, the LED monitor realizes the display screen through the blinking of the light-emitting diode and the molecular deflection of the liquid crystal layer, while the OLED monitor is self-illuminating (each pixel can emit monochromatic light); in terms of structure, the LED monitor is a multi-layer structure, while the OLED monitor has fewer layers and a relatively simple structure.


The name LED is a light-emitting diode. It is a light-emitting device. OLED name Organic Light-Emitting Diode is a current-type organic light-emitting device.

Lighting Principle

The LED monitor has a light-emitting layer, which is composed of multiple red light-emitting diodes, and uses the molecular deflection of the liquid crystal layer to display different images; each pixel of OLED can emit monochromatic light, so there is no need for a light-emitting layer, and current can be passed directly Drive organic thin film to emit light.

Structure and Screen Thickness

The structure of the LED monitor is relatively complicated, and it is composed of several layers, but OLED is very thin because it does not need a backlight, so the OLED monitor is about one-third of the thickness of the LED monitor, or even thinner; the OLED monitor also has the feature of being bendable, which is something that LED monitors cannot do at all.

Display Effect

LED monitors can generally achieve a color gamut of NTSC 72%, while the color of OLED is more conspicuous, reaching 100% of NTSC, which can meet the needs of the more demanding color gamut such as BT 2020, but there may be color temperature and color cast question.

Service Life

LED monitors do not have screen burn-in, OLED monitors are prone to screen burn-in after a long time of use, and LEDs have more advantages in terms of service life.

 LED vs OLED Which monitor is better?

When choosing between LED and OLED monitors, you need to consider not only the differences between the monitors but also the usage and cost performance. If there are more requirements for contrast, image quality, and color, then OLED will be a very good choice, just like our product OLED Portable Touch Monitor, which can provide clear image quality and high-quality images, suitable for games and designers.
If the overall budget is low and the image quality requirements are not so high, then LED monitors are recommended.
