How to Choose Right HDTV for your needs

Friday, June 3, 2011

When you try to find the HDTV for your needs, the product is available in three main product groups, as distinct from each other for their display technology and the type of the cabinet. Comparing the display technology and type of staff of your needs, you can easily exclude a large number of different televisions, and home to the most likely for you.

Size and shape

HDTV in all shapes and sizes. Some are flat panel displays that can be hung on the wall, others are projection systems, like what you find in a movie theater. And, of course, there are high-definition televisions tubes that seem to have television sets for decades (only with better pictures). Any form of HDTV has advantages and disadvantages, and this is just a quick overview to help you on your way.

Flat-panel HDTVs

flat screen televisions - the ultra-thin models, you can literally hang on the wall - is the sexiest HDTVs available. These are the ones you see on MTV Cribs and you can install on your tricked-out Escalade (yeah). HDTV is also good. There are two main display technologies for flat panel HDTV:

1. Plasma: These are the largest flat panel displays available with a layer of gas trapped between two walls of glass to create their images.

You will see the term "black" mentioned here. Is referred to as an HDTV can play tones and dark scenes on the screen - and creates black instead of gray.
  • Pros: thin, sexy, good picture, good color, big
  • Cons: not all are HDTV, less-than-perfect black, screen burn-in, costly
2. LCD: flat screen TV They use liquid crystal displays, like those used in laptop computers.
  • Pros: same as plasma, no burn-in
  • Cons: black is poorest, costly, angle of view

Projection HDTVs

These televisions that project their images from a source of smaller images (or three tubes of small picture, or a digital system known as microprojector) on a screen. The screen can be part of the HDTV (rear projection) or a separate screen on the wall (front projection).

1. Front-projection HDTV: This is the equivalent of high definition cinema projectors, with a large screen on the wall, and a separate projector mounted somewhere across the room.
  • Pros: biggest screen, potentially best picture, can be portable
  • Con: expensive, complicated, requires setup/focus/maintenance
2. Rear projection HDTVs: The picture is projected on the back of a screen that is built into the HDTV itself.
  • Pros: best bargain, no burn-in with microprojectors, near flat-panel thinness for microprojector
  • Cons: burn-in for CRT, expense for microprojector, bulky size for CRT

The last category of high-definition televisions is based on the old CRT - also known as the cathode ray tube or CRT.
  • Pros: cheapest, great color, great blacks
  • Cons: smallest screen, bulky, lower resolution than digital displays
And looking at HDTVs, the following criteria most important think of your purchase:
  • What is your budget? system counts the cost of TV, the more money they spend on any partition theater surround sound, special remote controls, automatic blinds, lighting controls, popcorn, etc.. It makes a big difference if you build a home theater, HDTV or just put a TV on the dresser in the bedroom.
  • What size do you need? No, bigger is not always better. You can have a TV that is too large for your space or too small for use. There is an optimum range, depending on where you want to place the TV where you want to sit down.
  • What should you do with it? Want to see a lot of sporting events? Film? Video games? Believe it or not, some types of HDTVs are best for certain types of content. Sports enthusiasts will find a big, bright DLP projection system best suits their tastes, everything else is equal, and people who watch CNN all day long you want to avoid plasma dramatically, due to burn-in effects of static images.
  • What you can connect to it? If you already have a decent investment in A / V gear, and that the plant may dictate certain types (and numbers!) Interfaces or ports on your HDTV.
  • What are the interesting features that you want? It 's easy to be influenced by interesting features, but in many implementations, you can not access them for various reasons. For example, if you set the system so that all signals are available in more than a cable connection, it may not be able to use the dual-channel on the TV - you could count on the cable or satellite.
One thing is certain: prices will decrease over time. In deciding the amount of spending in all, remember this: your home entertainment system is probably one of the most use of your home. It helps define your family, social life, trade, and so on. These are the places where you personally have a substantial investment, because it is the most used.
