LCD TV Advantages

If you've gone shopping for televisions lately, you've noticed that you have many different choices. The old tube-style televisions now share shelf space with plasma and LCD televisions. There are many advantages to choosing an LCD television, which could make LCD the right choice for you.

Just from looking at an LCD television, you can tell that an LCD TV is flatter than a tube television with the same screen size. They even tend to be a little flatter than a plasma TV of the same size. Also, there is a major difference in weight. LCD televisions are much lighter than tube televisions. They are even lighter than the flat screen plasma TVs, which can weigh twice as much as an equivalent LCD TV. This makes them easier to move around and easier to mount on a wall.

LCD televisions are also much brighter than other televisions. They also have anti-glare technology in their screens. These things put together mean that LCD screen televisions are easy to watch in a well-lit room. Having an LCD TV means you no longer have to turn out the lights and close the curtains just to watch TV.
LCD panel TVs are not prone to "burn-in" like plasma and tube televisions. Plasma or tube TVs sometimes show "ghost images" left behind by something that was displayed on the screen for too long. These images interfere with what is displayed on the screen, and degrade picture quality. This is much less likely to happen with an LCD TV.

LCD screen TVs are also multi-talented. You can use them to watch normal TV or HDTV. LCD televisions have composite video input, component video input, and even RGB input for computers. Plasma screen televisions tend to have trouble when used as computer monitors. Text and still images tend to look jagged on a plasma screen, and plasma TVs have greater risk of burn-in. LCD televisions don't suffer from burn-in like plasma TVs, and text and computer graphics look sharp.

LCD TVs have energy-efficient fluorescent backlights. Plasma TVs don't, and they spend energy lighting up every single pixel on the screen, including the dark ones. A typical plasma TV uses 50% more power than a typical LCD TV.
