Are you one of the many who is simply hot on buying an LCD TV? After having an HD receiver, your old television simply is just not compatible for high definition viewing.

Cathode ray tube televisions are already behind us now. The newest innovations in TV viewing are the plasma and the LCD TV. Their sleek designs and distinctive placement has totally changed your viewing experience. You can mount this above your fireplace or you can place it on your ceiling. Anywhere you want! Amazing, is it not?

The LCD Television

Picture is created in the LCD screen through a system called Twisted Nematic. It consists of crystals that are naturally twisted. They are reactive to electric currents in an expected manner. The crystals entwines in different degrees depending on the voltage that pass through them. These crystals are located between polarized glass panes and the untwisting enables light to pass through.

The Plasma Television

The plasma technology was first introduced to the market in 1964. Throughout the years, many improvements have been made in the manufacture of plasma TVs. It has become one of the best in the market today. Inside the plasma TV are phosphors of three colors. These are the primary colors red, blue, and green. The images are created by combination of all the three colors. In between the glass panels are electrodes. Impulses passed by here change the state of the plasma gases inside, and thus, create light on the screen. Plasma televisions are available in high definition or extended definition. If you are going to use you plasma with a computer, consider using the HD model. But if you will be mostly watching movies, the ED is also a great model. Remember to choose a reputable manufacturer.

Here are some tips when looking for a flat screen television. If you want a big TV, go for a plasma, they are the biggest in the market. But if you just want a smaller one, go for an LCD TV. Larger sizes are also available for LCD TVs, but they are quite expensive as compared to plasma TVs.

Plasma televisions support high speed scenes better than LCD. The contrast ratios are also great in plasma TVs. They are also a winner in the viewing angle and color saturation. The one area where LCD has an advantage is that it has no burn-in unlike the plasma televisions.
