Ever since the high definition television is introduced to the market, it greatly affected the home entertainment industry, as people would often inquire which type of viewing screen is applicable for them. Little do people know, HDTV has been around for more than a decade but it was just recently when the mainstream public is willing to spend big bucks for these televisions. There are a lot of people who are enticed to this kind of digital technology but they are at a loss as to what to pick, LCD or LED HDTV, and if you are one of these people, here are some brief comparisons of the two.
LCD or liquid crystal display has a slimmer and lighter feature than the common screens and it often emits better picture quality especially in its sharpness and clarity features. You can find this type of display also in cellular phones, computer monitors, digital frames and other viewing image devices. LCD TVs have a flat screen unlike the television of the yesteryears so there would no ?burn in? screens and picture distortion. In addition to that, the picture can be viewed 87 degrees from each side since the viewing angle of an LCD is 175 degrees. Also, LCD screen displays use backlighting when the HDTV is powered on. This would often result to loss of imaging details.
Light Emitting Diodes or LED HDTV is an LCD screen yet by its description, it does not use fluorescent lights for backlighting. This would result to a slimmer frame for LED HDTV coming in at 1.5? as compared to the 2.5? LCD TVs. Another benefit of LED HDTV is that it uses less energy and last longer than any other TV screens. The only disadvantage of LED HDTV is that it is heavy on the pocket but if brighter pictures and awesome graphic display are what you're after, then by all means, spend away. This type of HDTV is made with local dimming and RGB LEDs that enhances images and improves contrast ratio and color accuracy.
