LED monitors taking the lead

Written by


50% market share expected in 2011
LED-backlit monitors are the new black, but cheaper CCFL-backlit models still account for the majority of desktop monitor shipments worldwide.

Things are about to change, and fast. As prices go down, Taiwanese monitor makers are expecting to see LED market share go up towards the end of the year. By then, LED-backlit units should take the lead and they will account for 50 percent of all monitor shipments in 2011.

The advantages of LED-backlit screens are more than obvious. They are much more power efficient than CCFL units and they tend to deliver better contrast and overall image quality. Also, they just look better, as many of them are very thin and quite stylish.

CCFL is clearly going the way of the dodo and fast, although it will stick around for a few more years in niche markets.

One step forward towards the ancient CRT high image quality.

LED-backlit monitors do not necessarily have better contrast and/or better image quality. Actually, quite the contrary. There're often issues with backlight dispersal uniformity and clouding. Also, LEDs do not necessarily provide a better colour space and by themselves they do not even lower power consumption that much.

LED-backlit monitors are usually thinner, though, because they're using edge-LED backlights. Which, by the way, soon will only be in one side of the panel, so expect even more uniformity issues. This drives down the cost, however, and probably will save some energy while sacrificing image quality further.

Remember, if it CAN be built more cheaply it WILL be built more cheaply!
