Imagined What Your Next HD Television Buy is Going to be Like?

By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | March 8th 2012 | Views:

Buying a television is vastly different from what it was a decade. Newer technologies bring in changes almost every other day and it is unimaginable what the future of television is going to be. No more there are curvatures to the screen and it seems that flat screens will rule the roost for the rest of our lives. So when you set out to buy a new television for your family make sure some sure that you at least understand some of the terminologies that manufacturers use to describe their products. There are almost a never ending list of acronyms and each have a meaning of their own. Understanding what they mean is the key to enjoying Dish HD services.

The CRT, Cathode Ray Tube, is the oldest of all television manufacturing technologies and the first to be used on a commercial basis. They have some advantages that, even the newer technologies cannot hope to match. But on the down side they are too heavy to carry, consume lot of electricity and generally no bigger than 42 in size. If you are planning a really big television for your living room you will not find anything to your liking. However, even in the biggest of rooms, viewing angle will not be an issue. Generally a CRT television will not cost you much.

The LCD television fits perfectly if you don’t mind compromising a little on picture quality which is somewhere between a plasma television and a CRT. They will cost you a lot less and are HD compatible. They come in various sizes, are lighter and can even be mounted on the wall. At least 60% of all new televisions sold worldwide today is accounted for by the LCD. LCDs generally consume less power than a comparable CRT or Plasma and do not produce much heat. But the possibility of viewing angle can be a big issue unless the manufacturer has done something about it. There is also the possibility of image distortion when viewed from an angle. They also tend to work better in brightly lit homes. LCDs have more ghosting effects; there is a high probability of defective pixels and have a poor black level.

Plasma is the latest television to hit the markets. If big size is what you want then there can be nothing that can beat the Plasma television. They are even better than its precursors, the LCD and have better black level and the colors are almost true to life. They have wider viewing angles not as the same as a CRT. But plasmas are prone to burn-in, consume a lot of electric energy and can heat up the room if it is not well ventilated or air conditioned. Size for size they are at least 20% larger than LCD and plasma can be that much more expensive to buy.

The OELD is the next big thing that is about to happen and only one corporation has so far come out with a saleable model. It is a compromise technology between the LCD and plasma that irons out the shortcomings between the two. They are thinner than plasma and LCD, have good black level and have superior color reproduction than the both. They have very wide viewing angle and that alone is enough reason to buy if you intend to keep it in your living room. Once more manufacturers enter the market with OELD products prices can take a dipping, because the technology is believed to be cost effective in many respects. The downside is that their operating life can be vastly lower when compared to other television technologies products.
