LCD HDTV: Buyers Guide To LCD High Defintion Televisions

By: Alex Bradbury

Gone are the days of cathode ray tubes. This is because there are better models now that are clearer and thinner in the market. One particular example is the LCD HDTV. If you donít know how to buy one, this article should point you in the right direction.

LCD HDTVs come in different sizes. The smallest is 15 inches and the widest is 46 inches. If you plan to buy one that is 30 inches or smaller, the price is relative to that of conventional televisions so it is best to buy something bigger.

If you do that, keep in mind that the LCD HD television is selling for almost the same price as a Plasma television.

Since the LCD HDTV does not take up that much space, this can be set up anywhere in the house. But again, you have to choose the correct size that fits your viewing environment. The best way to do that is to measure the area diagonally. This can only work if your model is bottom-mounted, hidden or comes with removable speakers.

But screen size should not be the deciding factor as to which brand you will buy from the store. You should also pay attention to the contrast ratio as this will tell you brightest and darkest light values a display can produce at the same time. If the contrast is high, then this means that the television is worth buying.

Apart from contrast ratio, you should also pay attention to the aspect ratio which describes the relationship of screen width to screen height. The higher it is the better. In fact, this is the trend these days as it will make the show you are watching much clearer on a wide screen format.

Naturally, you want a television that can play video in various formats. This allows you to plug in your video camera even if it is 3 or 4 years old and donít have time yet to buy a new one that has new features.

Another thing your LCD HDTV must have are USB ports so that you can also upload stuff without the use of a plug. Before you buy the unit, make sure you know what the ports can do because this is different for each brand.

HDTVís need to get a signal and you can get this from an antenna, cable or satellite. If you donít have a built in tuner, you need to find out what accessories you need to make it work so this can be setup and working once you bring this home.

LCD HDTVís cost a lot of money so you have to know what to look for when you are out shopping. While you are at the store, compare everything that we talked about including the price. If possible try to see how the television performs when a dark scene is being played. Since this might be the unit you will bring home, familiarize yourself with the remote and the other aspects so you wonít have any problems.

The LCD HDTV is worth buying. In the end, it is up to you which one you will get which is dependent on different factors but the most important one happens to be how much you have in your wallet.
