Liquid crystal displays or LCD’s are the latest craze in television technology. These are light in weight and slim as your child’s school note book. We can hang it like a picture frame or even place it on a stand. But before buying your first LCD TV you have to get some knowledge about the TV. Here we’ll discuss about 3 essential points to consider before buying your first LCD TV.


Place to position the LCD TV

Most of the LCD TVs are either wall or table mounted. If you position the LCD TV on wall make sure it’s no near the fireplace. Heats deteriorate the performance and longevity of LCD. Think of place that has proper ventilation and connection access. Make sure the width of the TV you are buying is at least one or two inches shorter than the measurement of the place you are expecting it to be put in.

Response time

This is the time that it takes each frame of image to refresh onto the screen. This is very important because if it is slow you will see a poor quality image with blurred and muddy motion pictures. We recommend getting the fastest response time you can find for a decent price.

Native pixel Resolution

Flat panel LCD TV sets can accommodate only a fixed number of pixels on the screen surface. It is best to get a LCD with highest number of native pixel resolution. Now-a-days HDTVs with resolution of 1920 X 1080 are available and HD compatible TVs with 1366 X 768 pixels are also available. The better the resolution, the better the picture detail.
