Many people think that the LED TV is a new kind of TV, but the truth is that it’s simply an upgrade. An LED TV is simply an LCD TV that uses light-emitting diodes in order to light up the screen. The ways that this can be done is to either line the edge of the display screen with the light-emitting diodes or position the LEDs along the back of the display.
When compared to CCFL-backlight LCD screens, LED TV screens produced images with greater dynamic contrast, have thinner screens, offer a more expansive array of colors, consume less power and are more reliable, but it’s worth mentioning that they are more expensive.
One of the drawbacks of an LED TV is that the quality of the the image worsens if you are positioned to the side or if the TV set is placed either too loo or too high in regards to your eye level. This is bad enough with LCD screens, and LED backlighting may actually make these conditions worse.
Be sure to take a look at flat screen TV reviews before shopping for a new flat screen TV. It might sound a bit odd, but it’s a good idea to tape together a cardboard panel that’s the same size of the LED TV that you’re thinking about buying. This will allow you to see just how much space the TV will dominate before you buy and decide you’ve either gone too small or too big. Shop around for the best price for a cheap TV and keep your eye on the calender for potential holiday sales.
