Looking For The Right LCD TV To Buy

Mar 5, 2008
Looking for that new TV set? You're no doubt looking for a LCD (or liquid crystal display) TV, but know all too well that they can be very expensive, especially the high definition LCD models. This is true, but there are in fact discount LCD TVs out there to be found. Post holiday sales when retailers pull out all the stops price wise in a mad scramble to get customers into their shops can be an excellent time to find LCD TV sets at a bargain price.

Floor models are another good way to obtain discount LCD TVs from retailers; there is generally a deep discount on merchandise sold minus it's original packaging. If you can do without that large box sitting around your living room, you're in luck, as well as a little richer than you'd be with a "brand new" model.

Another option for discount LCD TVs is of course to buy last season's model; make sure that the features you want are all present in the model you've been eying up at your local electronics shop. For instance, it is important to remember that not every large screen flat panel unit is necessarily high definition. The consumer should carefully check specifications of each model before buying. These models may in fact be high definition, enhanced definition, or neither of those things. The common assumption is that if it walks like a duck does not always hold true here.

So now that you have a few tips on where, when and how to look for a bargain on a LCD TV, what model should you be looking for? That all depends - the best LCD TV for you may not be exactly what someone else wants from their set. Think about your needs and wants before you go shopping for that LCD set.

Here are a few general rules of thumb to keep in mind when looking for that perfect TV set. If you play a lot of computer games or would like the option of using your television as a monitor for your computer, you'll want a model with an input for that; the best LCD TV models will have these and are excellent at displaying images and data from computer input sources. Other than that feature, the top concern for most is color accuracy and contrast. Inferior models tend to have lower accuracy and less contrast, while the better ones will have greater levels of both. The best way to evaluate this is to look closely at several different LCD TVs and compare the darkness of dark colors, especially blacks on each. The darker they are able to render black, the better the color accuracy and contrast.

Regardless of which model you're looking for, a LCD TV is almost certainly in your future. The cathode ray tube based television is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. Due to their high quality, sharp pictures and lightness (a great thing, anyone who has ever struggles with an old console TV set up several flights of stairs will tell you), they are certainly the wave of the future for home entertainment systems.
