When it comes to TV displays, mini-LED tech is quickly becoming a go-to feature for many top-line brands. Generally speaking, mini-LED TVs outperform traditional LCD TVs with deeper blacks, brighter whites, better contrast ratios, and wider colour gamuts. The display technique utilises miniature LEDs to backlight LCD screens, which result in a more precise and consistent backlight.
