With the advent of LED TV’s, people are jumping wagons and leaving their LCD TV’s behind. While most do this just to follow trend or to keep up with the latest technology, most lack logical reasoning or understanding when making the choice. So, in order to understand why LED TV’s are better than their LCD counterparts, we will quickly discuss both technologies.

This can cause fatigue and stress to your vision with prolonged use, not to mention more power usage and less longevity due to their being on all the time. Shortly speaking, this is not the most effective or efficient system anymore.
