So what's the difference between LED and OLED?From the Best Buy 4K Ultra HD TV Buying Guide:
All 4K Ultra HD TVs use one of these display panel types. Depending on the TV manufacturer, you can also choose either a flat-panel or curved screen.
The majority of 4K TVs currently use LED (light-emitting diode) panels. They are also the most popular HDTV type on the market, delivering excellent overall picture quality. They often have very thin profiles, allowing for easy placement in any viewing space. LED TVs are actually part of the LCD TV family, with the LEDs providing advanced edge lighting or backlighting.
OLED (organic light-emitting diode) 4K TVs offer an extremely high degree of color accuracy, great contrast, wide viewing angles and a picture that is virtually blur-free. Each one of the millions of pixels is individually illuminated, producing true blacks, whites and a brilliant range of colors. Images are processed in a similar fashion to plasma TVs, which makes them ideal for viewing sports and action movies. OLED technology also allows for extraordinarily thin screens.
