It is hard to tell why one should buy a flat screen, a high definition
capable television, a 17 inch screen or a 56 inch screen. In addition,
there are many models to choose from. Some models cost just under $ 1000
dollars while some will set you back as much as three months worth of a
modest mortgage. Making a decision will depend mainly on the use for the
television and the budget of the buyer.Chances are you will have to
decide between a plasma or LCD screen. A plasma screen is ideal for
saving space as plasma televisions are flat. In addition, plasma screens
give extra features as in they support high definitions media. But now
all the plasma televisions out there will support this. The cheaper
brands will skimp on this so do your home work well. The higher the
number of pixels it has the better it will display HDTV content. Plasma
screens also perform well even in poor lighting.

On the other hand, liquid crystal display (LCD) television screens do not
perform at the same level as plasma screens .In poor lighting, LCD
screens do not contrast black colors well. LCD screens needs very good
bright light to perform well while plasma screens do not need this
requirement. They also take up little space just like plasma screen being
thin and sleek. LCD screens are good for viewing computer data and for
video gaming so it can double up as your computer screen as well as
gaming screen. An LCD will be ideal if there will be need to use for
presentations and the like. LCD screens are not affected by altitude air
pressure changes so this makes them good choices for use in airplanes.
Plasma screens emit a humming sound at high altitudes.

What else should look at while shopping for a television? While choosing
a screen size you have to consider the distance between the television
and the sitting place frequently used. Keeping in mind that the larger
the screener the more you will have to pay. Also consider analog or
digital, most broadcasters are moving to digital productions. For cable
and VHS viewing an analog television will do while DVD media, digital
cable and satellite, a digital television is more suited.
There are other luxury features that you may consider going for while
choosing your set. A picture in picture feature (PIP) is a feature that
helps you watch two programmes at the same time. The two programmes could
be television or video. If you are a sports fun then this is the feature
to go for as your feature extra after choosing your screen and other
features. It is good also if you hate commercials and would like to
escape to something else while it running.
