LCD display/LCD: Common Errors in English Usage Entry for Friday, February 1, 2013

LCD display/LCD 
“LCD” stands for “liquid crystal display,” so it is redundant to write “LCD display.” Use just “LCD” or “LCD screen” instead.

Many people confuse this abbreviation with “LED,” which stands for “light-emitting diode”—a much earlier technology. You will often see explanations even in technical contexts in which “LCD” is incorrectly defined as “liquid crystal diode.”
