LCD TV Features and Benefits

Many people are curious what the main differences are between LCD and other types of TV’s like plasma, LED & projection. While there are a lot of similarities, there are many important differences that you should understand before purchasing an HDTV.

LCD TV Benefits:

  • Wide range of screen sizes (anywhere between 19″ and 70″+)
  • Limited screen glare in bright rooms
  • Energy efficient
  • Average thickness for an HDTV
  • Generally less expensive than other options

How do LCD HDTV’s differ from other options?

The main difference between LCD TV’s and other types of HDTV’s is how they light up. Traditional LCD TV’s use cold cathode fluorescent lights (CCFLs) to light up the screen. The phosphors in Plasma TV’s light themselves up which means they don’t require any form of back lighting. LED TV’s are actually a form of LCD TV’s (you may seem them referred to as LED backlit LCD TV’s). LED/LCD TV’s are lit with LED instead of CCFL which tends to create a better picture and allows manufacturers to create much thinner TV’s.

LCD TV Negatives

  • Picture brightness and dark levels not up to par with LED and Plasma
  • Not as thin as LED TV’s
  • Consumers more power than LED but less than Plasma

Who should buy an LCD TV?

LCD TV’s are great for many types of people. Due to their generally less expensive price tags, anyone who is looking for a bargain should probably start with LCD TV’s. People who aren’t adamant about picture quality and may not watch a lot of TV or is using it as a secondary TV in a kids room, office, etc. will be perfectly happy with LCD TV quality. If you’re concerned with power consumption, LCD is definitely a better option than plasma. The average TV watcher will definitely be impressed by a good LCD TV.

    My Vizio – VS3703 was purchased 3 yrs. & 2 months ago. We have always had a problem with the Component 1 connetions. It has now finally died altogether & will cost more money to repair than to purchase another new TV. I do not recommend Vizio.
