Pros and Cons of Buying an LCD Television

List: Posted: 08/29/11

Liquid Crystal Diode (LCD) televisions are one of the latest and most popular technologies to hit the market in recent years.  These ultra-thin television sets can range from relatively inexpensive to extremely costly, depending on the model.  They can be bought from any electronics store, which makes them accessible to most consumers. 

 

The Technology

 

The display of an LCD television is made up of two panes of polarized glass with liquid crystals between them.  An LCD TV is a flat-panel display, which means you get a wider picture than a tube TV would provide.  The liquid crystals also provide a sharper image and a more accurate display overall.  The picture is smoother and more colorful than a traditional television set, making LCD TVs among the most popular on the market today.

 

Versatility of Use

 

LCD televisions are also considered to be the most versatile and long lasting available.  They can be used as a regular television, an HDTV, a computer monitor, or a home video display.  LCD TVs come in a wide range of sizes to suit any need or budget, increasing their popularity in homes all over the world.  These slim televisions are also easily wall mounted, making them ideal for small spaces.

 

Pros and Cons

 

One negative consideration of choosing an LCD television is research that suggests LCD screens produce a harmful greenhouse gas, which contributes to global warming.  But if you are looking for a cheaper option to a plasma TV, the LCD TV is your best bet.  These cost effective TVs are, overall, a great choice for homes in need of an updated television that doesn't cost a fortune.
