Cheap Lcd Tv

Checklist before you buy a LCD TV

Want to buy a LCD TV but don’t know what to look for in the market or even at your house before buying one? Here are some tips to help you make a better choice:

  • Buy according to your room size. I know it’s good to have a huge TV in the house. The power it represents, the feel it gives is something you can’t get from a small TV. But if you have decided to keep it in a big room, then go buy a big/medium one. If the room is small, then don’t listen to your heart as it won’t look good there. Also, LCD TVs won’t give you good picture if you watch it from a very close distance. If you are not sure about the size, you can take a couple of newspapers and hang it on the wall to see if the size looks odd.
  • Now that you have decided the approximate size of your LCD TV, figure out your budget. There are many companies to choose from. You can find models of various prices. Remember that this LCD TV market is a very competitive field now. Many companies are offering their quality LCD panels at a cheaper rate just to grab consumers. They may be doing this for many reasons- clearance sale, seasonal sale, may be the units are used or refurbished. Ask your dealer to be clear about these as well.
  • Compare the features of the LCD TVs you have chosen to consider before buying. Consumer Reports on the internet can be a good source. For instance, check the Resolution- 1280x720 (720p) for less than 40” screen and 1920x1080 (1080p) for 40”+, Motion Response Time: 12ms or 8ms (milliseconds) where 8ms is preferred, Contrast Ratio 1,500:1 or higher for 32”+ screen, etc.
  • Pixel defect is a rare phenomenon for LCD TV where a “Dead Pixel” always appears on the screen of red or green color. Just to be sure you are not one of those unlucky guys; test the unit in the showroom before buying it. If you are shopping online, then ask your seller about replacement policies.
  • Many experts believe that the LCD which shows good black or shadow is a good one. That panel can give you clear and good contrasting picture quality. Look for a good contrast ratio.
  • Many people complain that they hate their new remote. My sister bought a new LCD TV a few weeks ago and she regrets throwing out her old TV’s remote. See if you can be comfortable with your new one or not.
  • HDTV compatibility is very important. Make sure your new LCD TV supports High Definition. High definition input is coming soon and it will give you a sharper and clearer picture.

Good luck with buying new LCD TV and hope you have a clear idea now about what to do before buying one for yourself.
