LCD vs LED monitors - Which is better?
Which will should I be looking at when I'm looking for a new monitor and why?

LED is said to be better.
Look for - resolution, higher is better
refresh rate in ms lower is better, hertz, higher is better.
inputs to suit your needs, functions to suit your needs, wall mountability if you want it

which is better? the worst question to ask actually because do you like a clean picture on LED that uses 3 times the power as a old CRT? Do you like the fact that LED is not true LED but a LCD that is backlit using LED instead of a lamp. Also LED can be side lit (cheaper cost and lower power) or full led where each LCD crystal is backlit using a LED thus tripling the cost , the power consumption (when new hardware should use less energy).
so ask yourself which is better? a brighter picture that costs you more to purchase and or power. Or a LCD that looks amazing that i LED side lit. the BEST is up to you really.

It depends what you are doing and what you like best. LED monitors will look better aesthetically and a lot of the time they have more colors. And almost always they have better blacks and better whites than an LCD.

what are you meaning when you say LED?
There are LED back lit LCD monitors.
And OLED monitors.

OLED requires no back lighting, it is also insanely expensive. The main benefit of OLED is that each pixel gives off it's own light and does not require a constant charge to keep the pixels primed so when something dark is displayed, the screen sends no power to those pixels, basically allowing for a extremely good contrast ratio. Also since they give off their own light, they also offer the best viewing angles (due to the pixel shape, they offer much better viewing angles than even a plasma TV.
LED back lighting for monitors allows the monitor to be much thinner. It also allows for a more even backlight coverage, as more efficient backlight distribution methods can be used. It also uses much less power.
The oldest and most widely used LCD lighting is still florescent lighting but it is being replaced by LED because it is cheaper to implement and offers a more uniform color temperature through out the brightness levels of the backlight.

LED is said to be better and look better.

well the LED is better over the LCD for what it's intended for.
1, the LED's will have a longer life span then the Flourescent tubes in a LCD screen
2, LED will produce less heat
3, LED will use less power
4, LED's are not as easy to break as a flourescent tube.
5, flourescent tubes contain a small amount of mercury which is very dangerious and hard to dispose of.
6, you can get some very bright LED's in some screens
7, not much diffrence, but LED's would be lighter compared to the tubes.
not sure on this one, but since there thinner, thinner monitors can be made.

"Look for - resolution, higher is better"
Not true. Full HD on 15 or even 14 inches will kill your eyes soon ...

Depends on the room's lighting conditions.
