Great question, many of us have asked ourselves this at some time when deciding on a new  TV for the lounge or as a monitor for a PC
since I have 4 in my place I recommend LED,
It's true that technically, what is referred as a LED TV is also a LCD TV, but with a different backlight.
The light and pixels are gentler on the eyes, also LED on your electricity bill is a bit better but depending on the size power varies with brightness

Personally I can only speak for myself but I believe until you have watched all of them there is a noticeable difference and clarity with the TV/monitors marked as LED.
Plasma TVs use a sheet of minuscule individual plasma cells that create a picture when an electrical charge is applied
LED TVs use liquid crystal, but unlike regular LCD televisions they use a backlight made of hundreds of LEDs (light-emitting diodes) instead of a fluorescent lamp.
The LEDs can be evenly distributed around the back of the television’s panel or situated in the edges of the screen to create a very thin display chassis.

When I turn off my cable box connected to my 68CM Sony LED digital TV there is a soft glow at the bottom and sides making it look like an empty fish tank if I have no lights on quite nice effect for a night light.
To quote wiki
An LED-backlit LCD display is a flat panel display which uses LED backlighting instead of the cold cathode fluorescent (CCFL) backlighting used by most other LCDs Edge-lit LEDs - in which the LEDs are formed around the rim of the screen, using a special diffusion panel to spread the light evenly behind the screen (the most common use)

Simple answer to your Question is LED.

LED Monitors offer better energy saving and better contrast.  You don't have to try to sift through an article.  LED is better.

First there is no such thing as a "LED" TV. That's marketing. It's just a LCD with LED back light.
I would suggest to truly decide which is better for you go to your local TV store, Walmart, etc and compare the picture quality on the TV's side by side. The more you can afford the better the picture quality.

led backlight has higher light levels, and since it was produced later than the LCD screens, it is applied on better products; s i would say technically it is the best
as for your question "whats better LCD or LED?"  you should give info on what you are looking for - technical quality, specs, etc
in general - BEST = what you like best

>>  The more you can afford the better the picture quality.   <<  it would be nice if that was true!
