LED vs LCD which HDTV is right for me?

LED vs LCD which HDTV is right for me?

LED is the latest and greatest HDTV technology out there. So that means it's  what I need to have right?




There is no doubt the new LED TV's have a lot of neat advantages. The most noticeable is that they are a lot skinnier than LCD TV's. I just can't stand those deep 2.5" LCD's anymore. Well not quite, but it is interesting that a big part of what we look for in a TV is not only how the picture looks but what the TV looks like even when it is off. This being said LED TV's because they use LED lights instead of traditional lamps in the background are much thinner around 1.5" depending on he particular brand of LED HDTV you are looking at.

Another advantage of LED HDTV's is that they use less energy and last longer than the traditional LCD HDTV's. Just like lamps in flashlights that use LED's.

You may be surprised to find out that LED TV's are LCD TV's. The only difference is that the LED TV's use LED lamps to create the light in the background. The LCD's then open and close to let the varying amount of light come through as needed.

So are LED HDTV's better than the traditional LCD HDTV's?

This is very hard to answer generically, because there are many types of LCD and LED HDTV's. Just like you can not compare the entire line of Toyota and Ford Cars.

The higher end of LCD's have a higher quality image processing engine than the Low end LED TV"s. One thing to be aware of when you are buying TV's is that the manufacturing companies like to use the "new technologies" to sell TV's. So they will just make LED backlit TV's and people buy them even though the LCD TV in the same price range has a superior picture.

The high end LED HDTV's do have a better picture, and this is because they are locally dimable. What this means is that if a part of the picture needs to be black they can actually turn the LED's in that section of the TV off. Of course there is nothing darker than no light? The TV's that have this technology are much more expensive, but if you are going for the best picture money can buy, it is what you should look for.

I think once they come down down in price, they may be worth scooping one up for my living room, where it's super bright. In my man-cave, nothing will replace my plasma!

I love plasma pictures. I do think the high end LED LCD TV's are very comparable.
I'm not sure why Plasmas have received such a bad rap.

I think today most of television had use technology of LED HDTV. Even this technology is a relatively new feature in the world of HD Television. They are thinner and have a better definition display than typical LCD TVs that use fluorescent lamps as a light source. However LED televisions are not technically that different from conventional the LCD TVs that have been with us for the last few years.

Speaking about thin tv's, samsung has one that's only 0.9 inch. Not that it matters to me really, I'm still using a plasma from panasonic and it's good enough for me. The only thing is that reflection of sunlight can be annoying. Luckily they created roller blinds.

LED is definitely the way to go nowadays for plenty of reasons. LCDs have a great picture but you need the 240 Hz. The LEDs just have that color that can't be beat. They are brighter and last longer.and the 3D is getting better with LED now.

LED TVs have great advantage over LCD TVs with the old cold cathode fluorescent lamps. LED lamps being tiny in size, has helped todays LED TVs to be really thin.
Samsung has great models - UND8000 series. The display is 1.5 inch in thickness. The bezel is 0.2 inch in thickness and gives you more screen area to watch your favourite shows. You are right, the energy consumption is really good.
I liked your post. Great info.

At the beginning was problem to identify differences between LCD and Plasma, of course it was a long time ago but anyway it was hard to do, now we already have LEDs and LCDs :) Better way is to choose new technology and of course necessarily pay attention to design and picture quality.

Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine 's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world , although it is not a public holiday in any country. Several martyrdom stories associated with the various Valentines that were connected to February 14 were added to later martyrologies, including a popular hagiographical account of Saint Valentine of Rome which indicated he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians , who were persecuted under the Roman Empire.According to legend, during his imprisonment, Saint Valentine healed the daughter of his jailer, Asterius, and before his execution, he wrote her a letter signed "Your Valentine" as a farewell. The day first became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). In Europe, Saint Valentine's Keys are given to lovers "as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the giver's heart", as well as to children, in order to ward off epilepsy (called Saint Valentine's Malady) .Valentine's Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards. Saint Valentine's Day is an official feast day in the Anglican Communion, as well as in the Lutheran Church.Many parts of the Eastern Orthodox Church also celebrate Saint Valentine's Day, albeit on July 6 and July 30, the former date in honor of the Roman presbyter Saint Valentine, and the latter date in honor of Hieromartyr Valentine, the Bishop of Interamna (modern Terni).
