What are my choices when it comes to HDTVs?
- Flat-panel LCD and plasma TVs are extremely popular due to their thin designs and crisp, vivid picture quality. For tips on which type would work best for you please call us and we will schedule a FREE in home consultation.
- Rear-projection TVs have also made the switch from picture tubes to digital technologies like DLP. In today's market, rear-projection TVs are great values, costing much less than same-sized flat-panel models.
- Digital projectors have grown more popular recently, in part because HDTV's remarkable picture clarity and detail make it possible to enjoy larger images than ever before — up to 10 feet across or even bigger.
What type of flat panel TV is the best?
- You want really rich, warm colors and deep blacks.
- You or others in the room will be sitting off-axis (viewing the screen from off to the sides rather than directly in front of it) when watching TV or movies.
- Your room setup doesn't put lots of direct light on the TV screen, or if you can easily reduce the light by closing the blinds, for example.
- You don't watch a lot of TV shows or play lots of video games with static images on the screen for more than a few hours at a time.
- You want a TV with a screen size under 42".
- Your TV room is relatively bright, or you do a lot of daytime viewing.
- You watch a lot of TV shows or play lots of video games with static images on the screen for extended periods of time, multiple days a week.
- You're looking for ways to save energy. LCD TVs often consume less power than plasma models of the same size.
