Are Flat Screen TVs Worth Having ?

Feb 29, 2008
Is too much of something a bad thing? Dentists say that too much sugar will rot the teeth. If a person eats a diet high in saturated fat, then they put themselves at risk of having a heart attack. But what about material possessions? Can a television ever be too big?

Flat screen TVs are definitely a material possession, especially when you consider how much they cost versus an older model television, but are they really worth having? It is more than just having a television that has a flat surface. It is about bigger, wider, and thinner and of course, and having a picture quality that is to be envied by all.

The problem in the past was that not all flat screen televisions were better than their round cousins. The flat screen monitor for the computer was very popular and gave a high density resolution. This was applied to big screen televisions.

There is a huge problem with those huge monstrosities. As the screen size was increased, color and resolution became distorted. Therefore, a person would have a giant picture, but the quality wasn't as good as that of small 27" televisions.

When people discuss flat screen TVs in today's technologically advanced world, most are referring to a LCD or plasma television. With a plasma TV, the size of the screen does not matter, as far as the resolution is concerned.

The high concentration of pixels and corresponding programming in the television can offer up an incredibly clear and crisp picture. The 52" has the same picture quality as the 40" and sometimes comes equipped with motion software that makes on-screen movements very fluid.

As with anything being too much, sometimes the prices for these televisions can be more than the average consumer wishes to spend. Flat screen televisions are quite expensive when compared to their cathode-ray cousins. Consumers are going to pay for that technology. A 52" HDTV plasma tv from Samsung runs close to $8,000.00 and that may be more than you want to spend on a boob tube.

Most people still find flat screen TVs a bit expensive and are hesitant to pay so much for a television. You have to remember that ten years ago, the price for a television set was not much more than what is being asked today.

A good quality and size LCD can be purchased at a major retailer for around $700.00. You may even be able to find a sale and purchase one at an even lower price.
