QLED vs OLED: Difference between both technologies and which one is better.

The previous blog highlighted the technology and working of OLED and QLED televisions. If you have not checked that out click on this link to know about it.


There are many differences between both the technologies, before you make any decision to shell out your hard earned money, we will be comparing both the technologies based on Brightness, contrast, viewing angles, response time and lifespan.

Black levels and contrast:
The difference between the brightest and the darkest part of an image is known as contrast. So if your TV can make true dark blacks then it does not have to work hard on making brighter parks extra bright to achieve good levels of contrast. Due to this reason, OLED reigns as the undisputed champion because of its ability to go completely black when it needs to.

Whereas QLED TVs are forced to dim their LED backlight and block the light, which is very hard to do perfectly. Due to this reason the issue of “light bleed” (as the light spills onto what’s supposed to be a black section of the screen.) is most common in these type of TV’s.

Brightness:
Well in this area the QLED TVs have a considerable advantage because they use separate backlightthat can be made incredibly bright. Due to this reason you can enjoy a picture quality so bright that can be seen clearly in even most brightly lit rooms.
OLED panels doesnn’t even come close in the matter of brightness. This is due to the inability of light-emitting individual pixels to produce enough amount of light. So in brightly lit room you can face a problem with the brightness. Also HDR experience can be a bitter in OLED TV’s.

Color Accuracy:
There was a time when OLED blew away the competition in terms of picture quality. But with the use of quantum dots in QLED TVs they have stepped forward in terms of color accuracy, wider range of saturated colors at extreme brightness levels are an advantage. Well we would say both the technologies deliver same amount of color accuracy until we get a solid evidence regarding mind-blowing color accuracy of QLED panels.

Response time:
The amount of time taken by individual pixel to switch from one state to another is known response time. With the increase in response time the images become more crisper, especially during fast-action scenes OLED have dominated the market with response time of just 0.1 millisecond whereas the QLED have response time of   2-8 milliseconds.

Viewing angle:
This has been a limitation of  all LED TV’s and  this has been carried forward to QLED as well. Manufacturers have made best efforts to enhance viewing angles but still the difference is noticeable.
OLED screens were popular due to their incredible viewing angles, these can be viewed with no luminescence degradation at drastic viewing angles — up to 84 degrees.

Screen burn-in:
Long story short screen burn in refers to a problem when certain portion of screen appears dim than rest of the display. OLED TV’s are susceptible of screen burn in issue and there have been numerous reports for the same but you have to be really unlucky and abuse the TV to get screen burn in problem. On the other hand QLED TV’s are not susceptible of this issue.

Power consumption:
OLED panels are extremely thin and require no back-light thus they are much power efficient than its rivals.

For now OLED TV's have more advantages and are leading the television industry by storm, but Samsung see lot of potential in QLED and are ready to launch TV's with micro LED technology. Well this technology is new and need some time to mature, and who knows one day QLED surpass OLED technology that use of OLED will fade away.

How IoT will impact online gaming industry.

Internet of Things, also known as IoT, is a hot tech that is on everybody’s lips. It is a network of physical devices such as vehicles, home appliances and other electronic devices through internet connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data. There are endless opportunities in IoT, when you start connecting things with things, humans with humans, or humans with things. Nowadays this hot tech has become an important part of our lives. Companies are earning huge amount of money by connecting devices and their revenue chart have skyrocketed. Gaming industry is one of the major industry which is impacted by IoT, and it’s most significant impact is on online gaming, whether they are consoles or online gambling. Impact of IoT on Casinos: One of the key area which has flourished over time is gambling industry. Online casinos have been effected by the growth of IoT. Playing poker or blackjack remotely without going to the casinos is of huge advantage as peop

Monitors and TV: Similarities and Differences

Monitors have faster response time than TVs and have higher refresh rates, lower input lag which make them better choice for gaming. Lot of us are confused whether, we should buy TV or monitor or can we interchange each other. We sometimes play games on HDTV or watch movies on computer monitor but that doesn't make them the same device. TVs have features not included in monitors, and monitors are generally smaller than TVs. However, TV and monitor have lot of similarities and have of dissimilarities. How They are Similar Following are the similarities in both Monitor and TV Screen Size When buying a new TV people prefer bigger screen size. However, screen resolution and panel type, play important role in image quality of device. As nowadays more content is in 4K hence while buying brand new TV nowadays, it should definitely support 4K. Overall, you can buy smaller 4K 43″ monitor or a 4K 50″-55″ TV by spending same amount of money. Screen Resolution TVs are availab

SpaceX's Starlink satellite internet network Explained!

"Starlink satellites use lasers to enhance internet speed along with sitting closer to the Earth to reduce latency and"  Space race is increasing day by day and now this time it’s not race to the moon, but its race between public and private sector to become supreme leader of the space. Elon Musk has a ambitious plan to interconnect the world with fast, affordable internet connectivity with its Starlink satellite internet project. As per Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) 2016 more than half of the Americans have only one choice for “fixed advanced telecommunications capability. Also, many remote areas of the world do not have access to high speed reliable internet. Although existing ISPs are improving but still its hard for them to reach rural areas. Such as, fiber connection is not available in remote areas of the world which provides minimum 100mbs download speed. Starlink satellites will cover this all the remote areas to provide high download speed with minimum
