LCD or LED TV, that is the question. And the more you read about them, the more confusing it can get. LCD stands for liquid crystal display. LED stands for light-emitting diode. Confused already? Let's cut to the chase.
An LED TV is, in essence, an LCD TV with backlights. Now, we could explain backlights, edge LEDs and even full-array LEDs. But the definitions aren't what's important about them; the look is. The best tactic is to simply go to a store and look at LED and LCD televisions side by side to decide which you like best. If you want to save gas money or don't have time to go to a store, websites can give you a visual comparison of the two. Terms such as backlight, edge LED and full-array are easier to understand when you can see the differences they can make.
