Selection criteria recommended to make your comparative LCD TV
The size of the screen: the decline ideal for a lcd tv is less than that recommended for a cathode classique television (better resolution and lesser luminescence). If this matter is still debate, it is reasonable to admit between 2.5 and 3 times the size of the screen as setback distance.
- HD ready or Full HD ?
ready can display a resolution in 1280 * 720, and a Full HD resolution
is 1980 * 1080. Currently, the possibilities of a
Full HD are not fully exploited. You
have to wait at the advent of high definition player (Blue-Ray or
HD-DVD) at a reasonable cost for it..
- Either you want a screen that will remain relevant long enough and you count early use the possibilities offered by HD (purchase of readers ...), and your choice should go to the Full HD
- Either you want a simple television large format, without undue invest immediately (perhaps imagine buying a new one in a few years), and this is rather the HD Ready you have to choose.
Your own assessment of image quality: each is not significant in the same way an image (color intensity, dynamism ...). It may therefore be interesting to get your own idea into a store, however, be sure to keep a critical mind, because dealers can play on the settings to make a TV more or less beautiful (and so try to sell you screens they wish to sell under their own interests, not yours). Of course, il is really less expensive to buy your TV on the Internet and we thing it is the right choice to do so.
- The integrated functions:
Nowadays, the TV have generally an integrated TNT tuner. Yet, depending on your country, it's perhaps to verify this point before buying. Indeed, this can afford not to use separate decoder or use it to record a program different from the one you watch (which is important when you know the poor image quality delivered by a television lcd with an analog source)
- Has the screen has an integrated hard disk to act as digital recorder?
