Many of us don’t know how to buy a TV. That’s because televisions have become complicated to get right. Within minutes of hunting for a new TV, you’ll come across a lot of acronyms and brain-melting jargon. But stick with it.
Lying behind all the complication, there are some truly outstanding TVs capable of making your old set look like a relic from the stone age.
Quantum dots (QLED)
Some (usually high-end) LCD TVs use Quantum Dot technology to deliver wider color ranges than you can get with normal LCD panels. Quantum Dots are tiny particles ranging from two to 10 nanometers in size, with each size capable of emitting a different color. Using them allows LCD TV makers to avoid color filters and white LED Backlights – two things that typically limit an LCD TV’s color performance.
