I've got a confession to make. I love television. And I really like large screen TVs. Especially the new flat panel models. Ahead of you know it, everybody will forgo their traditional CRT television sets and personal a LCD flat screen Television. This thought actually is not as strange as it sounds. LCD flat screen TVs are becoming more and a lot more common, and with very good cause.

But, you may be asking yourself, what exactly is a flat screen Tv? Flat screen TVs have displays only a few inches thick. This makes them appealing and very handy. You can now hang this kind of Television on the wall, or spot the set in thin areas. A LCD flat screen Television can save a lot of room in your property and appear fashionable doing so. However, there are a few things one must know ahead of he or she buys a LCD flat screen Television.

1. LCD vs. Plasma.

What About Plasma Tv?

Plasma TVs heavily rely on the fluorescent light bulb. A plasma flat screen display consists of cells. Inside each cell are two glass panels separated by a narrow gap. These gaps are injected with neon-xenon gas and sealed in plasma form. The gas is electrically charged when the plasma Television set is in use. The gas strikes red, green, and blue phosphors. This is what creates the Television image.

Since plasma TVs use the burning of phosphors to produce an image, they can suffer from the same drawbacks of classic TVs, such as high heat generation and screen burn-in. Also, plasma TVs tend to be quite pricey.

2. Find out about LCD TVs.

What to Know About a LCD Flat Screen Television

A LCD flat screen Tv consists of primarily two transparent, glass-like materials, which are polarized, and "glued" together. One particular of the plates is coated with a polymer that holds the individual liquid crystals. Electric present is then passed through individual crystals. This permit the crystals to pass or block light to produce images. Unlike plasma TVs, an external light source is required.

LCD flat screen Television screens range from 15-inch models that are mainly used as pc monitors or secondary TVs, to 40-inch wide screen TVs. (Though Sharp makes a magnificent 65-inch flat screen Tv in its Aquos brand lineup.)
