The prices of TVs have come down over the years, making buying a new TV more accessible to everyone. The market has many options, from LCD to LED, QLED, and OLED TVs. OLEDs have proven to be strong contenders. Consumers choose more OLED TVs over LED and LCD models because of their picture quality, wide viewing angles, and slimmer profiles, making them easier to hang and more aesthetically pleasing to display. Like any other technology, not every OLED television is created equal. If you’re looking for a new television, here is what to know about OLED TVs in 2023.
OLED stands for “organic light-emitting diode” and is a display technology used in modern TVs. Unlike traditional LCD screens, which use a backlight to illuminate the pixels, OLED TVs use a series of organic compounds that emit light when an electric current is passed through them. This technology allows each pixel to emit light, creating deep blacks, vivid colors, and high contrast ratios. When we compare other types of TVs, three factors tend to make OLEDs superior.
- Superior Picture Quality: OLED TVs offer superior contrast, with deeper blacks and brighter whites than other types of TVs, making them the overall choice regarding picture quality. Their fast response time and features like HDR (High Dynamic Range) make them ideal for fast-paced content like sports and movies. Look for an OLED TV with Dolby Vision for more accurate color reproduction.
- Wider Viewing Angles: OLED TVs have wider viewing angles that can be particularly beneficial for larger living rooms or families who like to gather around the TV for movie nights or the big game. With an OLED TV, everyone can enjoy the same high-quality picture, regardless of where they sit, because OLED technology doesn’t require a backlight. When a backlight is needed in a TV, the picture quality tends to degrade when viewed from off-center angles.
- Slimmer profile: OLED TVs tend to be slimmer than other TVs, making them easier to hang and excellent from a home design perspective. Like the QLED Samsung Frame TV, OLED TVs often feature a slim, minimalist look with thin bezels. Also, like the Samsung Frame TV, some models have unique features like art mode, which can turn the TV into a piece of art when not in use.

So which TVs are the best to buy in 2023? At Audio Video Charlotte, we install several brands of OLED TVs. In our experience and based on the satisfaction of our clients, we suggest the following OLEDs if you are in the market for a new television:
LG has significantly improved the brightness of their OLEDs and added Brightness Booster Max in some new TV models.

LG’s G3 TVs display a ‘next-generation’ OLED panel technology called META Technology. These panels have Stack layers that are 1 micrometer – Glass, MLA (Micro Lens Array), WOLED, and Encap. Together they maximize light emission and spread light through the glass panel, positively impacting brightness and energy efficiency.
