LED or TFT

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone!

I wanted to know from those of you that enjoy LED monitors if its worth it or not.

Im gonna be purchasing a new monitor soon and i have found a good LG Full HD for a good price but its not LED. there are other LED displays that are closely priced like the Asus VW228N or the BenQ (im not a big fan of BenQ, unless they have changed a lot lately).

there is also a Samsung that is priced a little higher.

Any recommendations? Anyone knows any better monitors priced not higher than 150 Euros that can be bought in Spain?

Thanks in advance!

I don't own an LED LCD, but you should know that LED refers to the type of backlighting whileTFT is a type of LCD panel.

The advantage of an LED backlight is that it last longer than standard backlights and uses less energy. Also, I think that it won't degrade like a traditional backlight. Maybe someone who owns and LED LCD can comment on that.

From what I've read, it does not seem that white LED backlights offer greater color accuracy vs. traditional backlights (excluding expensive LED backlight monitors like the HP Dreamcolor LP2480zx)

I've considered buying an LED backlight monitors, and apart from very expensive models (like the one above), so far the execution doesn't quite live up to the marketing hype. My suggestion is that you focus on whichever monitor in your price range has the best reviews (color accuracy, panel consistancy, response time, input lag and ACTUAL contrast - dynamic contrast is crap & most monitors don't live up to the specs anyway) regardless of what type of backlight it has.

Yeah the TFT was my mistake, i got all confused.

I heard about the hype but i haven't really seen a big difference at the stores where they show both types.

Thanks, + rep
