No matter how you call these exciting television sets you cannot help but be impressed when you learn more about LCD televisions. It is obvious that these televisions incorporate technologies related to liquid crystal display (LCD) which in turn ensures that images produced are of superior quality. Another distinguishing aspect of the LCD television is that it is very slim and light in weight and these television sets are available in larger sizes as compared to normal conventional CRTs.
With many interesting features, liquid crystal display TVs provide a more practical solution and a more exciting television viewing experience than the conventional CRTs. With falling costs of manufacture the liquid crystal display (LCD) televisions the dominance of the CRTs has been put under severe strain and in fact there are very few takers for those old-fashioned sets.
In fact, the year 2007 was a watershed year in so far as liquid crystal display televisions go because it was in this year that these televisions started to outsell the CRTs. In fact, the liquid crystal display television is also replacing the plasma televisions and also rear-projection sets and is today the most popular type of television set on the market today.
It does however pay to find out which type is better – LCD or CRT -and in this regard it does pay to understand what the downsides to owning the LCD television are. In fact, newer television sets are going to hit the market that will be capitalizing on the weaknesses of the LCDs and so you can expect competition from FED, OLED and SED television sets that however are yet to be mass produced.
It pays to look at what you can expect from a liquid crystal display television and one obvious advantage that you get is its ability to produce better colour images which is achieved through selective filtering of white coloured lights. Another advantage that you get from a LCD set is that latest models are able to counteract one of the downsides to such sets which were that they used too much power.
However, manufacturers such as Sony and Panasonic have incorporated energy saving features that help in cutting consumption of energy by as much as thirty percent. In their earliest avatars the liquid crystal display sets were not liked because they could produce sufficiently good quality of image which usually suffered from ghosting when the images depicted fast moving action. In addition, the early liquid crystal display televisions also could not provide good enough contrast ratio and the colours would turn muddy.
All these early teething troubles led many to doubt whether liquid crystal display televisions would survive and in fact many people predicted that there would be other technologies that would surpass LCD technologies and so it was widely expected that the LCD would die a sudden death.
Today, however LCD is becoming the standard in televisions and everyone is making a beeline to bring home the latest from a variety of manufacturers. All this leads one to assume that those early hiccups have been sorted out because today the LCD television is offering better quality of image, superior colours and also blur-free images.
