HD TV: selecting your display type

LED-based HD TVs vary in sizes from 32 inches and up. These TVs have better picture quality over LCD TVs. Plus, it consumes less power. LED TVs also comes in thinner panels because of its technological design. The only downside for this display type is the price. It’s quite expensive at the moment to own an LED TV, so this is only recommended for buyers who are willing to spend more bucks on a thinner panel and better quality.
Plasma-based HD TVs are currently being manufactured by companies like Samsung, Panasonic and LG. This is the ideal HD TV when intended for use in a dark room because of its known black-level performance. Some pictures or movies are best shown in a dark room, much like watching in the movie theater. However, plasma TVs are consume high power, so unless if you’re ok with that and have preference watching in dark room, this display type may not be the one for you.
