Quick Guide To Buying An HD LCD TV

By: Alex Bradbury

The HD LCD TV is the in thing these days. This is because it is lighter and provides better resolution than the CRT or cathode ray tube and this is expected to be in demand in the foreseeable future.

If you look online or at the store, you will notice that HD LCD TVís come in different sizes. The smallest is 15 inches but if you want to create your own home entertainment system, go for the 40 inch screen.

You might notice that there are screens bigger than this that measures 65 inches. This is not an LCD but rather a plasma television.

The benefit of owning an HD LCD TV is that it does not take that much space so this is ideal for people who live in an apartment or a big home. This can be mounted on the wall or can be used placed on a bracket so you can use it as a computer monitor.
If you think this is hard to move around, think again because it is very lightweight so you wonít have a problem carrying this yourself and moving it from one place to the next.

Aside form screen size, you should also be aware of the contrast ratio so you can see the bright and dark values which will appear on screen. The higher the better and the best one right now is 1080p. If you canít afford that, stick with the 720p that is just as good.

You should also pay attention to the aspect ratio as this will enable you to watch movies on a wide screen format.
There are special features which you should be looking for when you are in the market for an HD LCD TV. It must have a V-chip to block certain channels especially if these are not appropriate for children.

It should have a sleep timer so it can turn off automatically if you fall asleep. There has to be a picture to picture box which allows you to watch your current show at the same time that you are thinking of switching to another channel.

While most televisions have plugs to connect a video recorder, try to see if it comes with a USB port so data from there can be displayed on the screen.

Most importantly, the HD LCD TV must already have a tuner so you donít have to buy this anymore and then acquire the other accessories that are required to enable you to watch shows in high definition. If you donít see the difference, compare both shows by watching the HD in the big screen and the regular show in the small screen.

It is no joke when we say that HD LCD TVís cost a lot of money. While there are many brands to choose from, the prices vary. But donít let the price tag be the deciding factor when you decide to buy it. Look at the features it has to offer and let this be the basis of your decision.

Once you bring the HD LCD TV home and set it up, you will surely enjoy hours of shows and movies right in the comforts of your own home. Does this beat watching in the theatre? Not really but at least you can watch your DVDís over and over again without other people making any noise.
