What is QLED?

A QLED TV is a television with an LED backlight system and a quantum dot film layer that is intended to offer a higher quality and brighter image.

What does QLED stand for?

QLED is an abbreviation for Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diode, which produces a wide spectrum of vibrant colours with great contrast, resulting in a more immersive and high-quality viewing experience.


Why should you buy a QLED TV?

One of the main reasons why consumers prefer to buy a QLED TV over other models is the high luminance, which refers to the overall brightness of the screen.

Another incentive to choose a QLED TV is the rich colour quality that can be reached when compared to non-QLED TVs because they can attain a wider colour spectrum, increasing the level of detail in the dark places. Overall, visibility is improving at both ends of the spectrum, resulting in a more realistic watching experience.


The Q in QLED stands for quantum dot which is the main different when it comes to QLED vs LED, but it is also a huge difference when it comes to quality and overall viewing experience.

It is important to remember a QLED TV is still LED technology at its core and the price point from a LED screen to a QLED screen can sometimes be higher. Due to not only a jump in quality but also because QLED is still a relatively new technology and is not offered by all manufacturers.



HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, which means that an HDR TV is compatible with HDR media, which improves the media’s colour, contrast, and brightness.

If you bought a new TV in the last 5 years, it is very probable that it already has HDR built in. A Mitchell & Brown QLED TV will instantly turn whatever content you are watching into a higher quality experience. In other words, QLED vs HDR are two distinct technologies; one is hardware and the other is a media-based visual enhancement.


OLED stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode.

The light emitting-diode refers to an OLED panel with microscopic LED pixels that can both emit light and colour in a single element, implying that OLED screens do not require an LED back panel because each OLED pixel produces its own light. This allows the screen to produce much richer dark colours than a QLED screen, which can sometimes appear to have a greyer tinge to any darker colours that they show.


Mitchell and Brown QLED TVs

At Mitchell and Brown, we offer three QLED TV sizes: 43-inch, 50-inch, and 55-inch, all with a slim, contemporary practically borderless design that delivers realistic lifelike images with a rich palette of colours.

The Mitchell and Brown QLED TVs include a metal TV swivel stand that allows you to effortlessly adjust the optimal viewing angle with a simple turn of the screen rather than lifting and repositioning the entire TV.

Our 43-inch QLED TVs also include an integrated speaker box to boost overall sound quality. The 50-inch and 55-inch models, on the other hand, include a subwoofer that increases the bass sound, helping to immerse you in your favourite TV show or movie.
