LED is a couple years old and so far not many complaints but they won't be around long. Plasma is much more expensive to repair but a great picture. LCD 120hz 1080p is probably the way to go if money is no object. Stay with a brand name such as Samsung, Panasonic, Sharp, stay away from Polaroid, Ilo, Dell, Westinghouse, Olevia, these are brands that have very poor customer support and parts availability. I am in the service industry and I see it everyday. Happy shopping...

Choose the best between LED, Plasma and LCD HDTVs.


<p><span>If you have not enough knowledge about the current TV technologies, so it may a little scary in choosing best out of different TVs which is better, LCD HDTV or Plasma HDTV?</span><br /> <p><span>These below tips will help you choose between different HDTVs and find out which will be best to suit your needs.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>1. The LED HDTVs are a new breed. The technology of LED HDTVs is changing rapidly. The technology is new and very expensive. I would not suggest you to buy LED until the price drops and the technology of LED HDTVs evolve. Now choose between Plasma or LCD screen.</span><br /> <p><span><span> </span></span><br /> <p><span>2. The Plasma is best in the contrast ratio category. The contrast ratio of LCD screens has caught up but still can not beat Plasma.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>3. For moving images, such as chase scenes in movies, Plasma is best out of LCDs. Plasma TVs can be viewed from almost complete side. When your room is small where you putting your TVs, but it does not matter.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>4. Both Plasma and LCD have same life time; this factor depends on the manufacturer. Do not base your judgment on number alone. So, make sure to read online reviews of the TVs.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>5. In the case of large HDTVs, such as 50 inches and bigger, Plasma is probably superior. The companies like Samsung and LG have made very large Plasmas that have proven to be very good.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>6. If you want to power consumption, LCDs are best, The LCD TVs use about half the power of the total consumption generally.</span><br />

What to do when you have a cracked LCD, LED or Plasma TV


Spending a ton of money on a new TV is the norm these days. Unfortunately televisions are not made like they used to be. Flat panel LCD, LED and Plasma TVs are very fragile. The picture area can be cracked by even light objects hitting the TV.

Once the picture is cracked there is no way to repair it. It needs to be replaced. TV manufacturers purchase LCD, LED and Plasma screens in large quanities and get a great price. When your local repair shop has to purchase a single replacement unit, you will often find it is as expensive if not more expensive then a new TV (if its even avaliable) when you factor in the labor costs. Usually you are better off replacing the TV with a brand new set the next time a good sale comes up then have it repaired.

You would think the TV's warranty or extended warranty you purchased would cover a cracked screen. Alas.. they don't. Every warranty I have ever read does not cover accidental damage. As soon as the repair person sees the screen is cracked, they will tell you the warranty does not cover it and you are out of luck.

While there isn't much hope for repairing your current TV, you can take some simple steps to protect your new TV from damage.

1. Mount the TV on the wall. Its a lot harder for little kids to hit the TV or throw something at the TV when it is mounted on the wall vs sitting on a stand.

2. Explain to the family how fragile the TV is. While this might seem obvious.. kids do know things until they are taught.

3. Wear the wrist strap while playing video games as recommended!

4. Pickup a tv screen protector from a company like TV Armor. They are designed to provide impact protection for the TV without affecting the picture.

Following these simple steps can keep you enjoying your new TV for many years to come even if you do have a budding baseball player at home.

Best plasma TV HDMI


None.All Plasma tvs designs are alway have high heat output and consume alot more A/C power energy than any other tvs designs out there.Tvs like CRT-tube tvs,DLP tvs -Projection tubes and projection lamps tvs,LCD-flourescent tubes tvs as Liquid crystal display screen tvs.All these tvs designs are all good tvs designs to buy but the pictures display and screen lighting and the sharpness of the pictures never have and able to compare high enough qualities as a display picture on the screen output to a Plasma screen tvs,until now LED-tvs are LCD and LED screen display combine to make it better and brighter technologies and now are good enough to compare to a Plasma screen panel tv.So buy a LED tv will get less heat output and comsume less A/C power energy too and it is good enough pictures qualities too.To compare too as a plasma screen panel tvs output.

Hi, Thinking about getting a new t.v with HD technology which main purpose i guess will be for x box. anyone heard or know anything about this brand/make. Luxor 32" 1080P LCD HD Ready TV. Selling...


Well, I cant understand your price of £24.9. I'm not too familiar with Luxor but I would say do some customer research on that brand, not only that brand but every brand your intrested in. 1080P is great, LCD is soso, if you can afford it, go for LED. LED is far better than LCD and they allow you to have 120Hz if not more for smoother clear pictures. I also recommend you to look at the back of the LCD Luxor, usually on display models the retailers try to be tricky and plug it through some HDMI cables. This enhances the pictures by far compaired to normal AV cables. Other than that, good luck in finding a tv.

Recomendation:
LED TV, with 120Hz or more refresh rate (Great for gaming), 1080p (3d is worthless at this point since you cant really do anything with it). Good Reliable Brand: Sony, Samsung (cheaper than sony and first in the led business), Panasonic, and some others that I cant think of at the moment.

Rate me.

We have brought a Wii over for mthe UK to Canada. We have connected it to our emerson TV, and can hear the Wii, but cant see a picture?


None at all? That's unusual even though not impossible.

Mix-up of european and american AV electronics often cause problems due to difference in the PAL/SECAM encoding used in EU and the NTSC encoding used in North America.

Some TVs can actually handle both. Such are most of the last generation CRTs. Oddly, a 15+ years old TV (latest generation CRT) could work better than newer generation LCD and plasma TVs, but it's a fact that I've seen many times.

Newer and cheaper LCDs and plasmas often only support either PAL/SECAM or NTSC, but not both.
(there are, in all fairness, at least some good reasons for that although in my personal opinion it's still mostly money and revenue driven exclusion)

Some new TVs would show bad quality image from the unsupported system (black and white with distortion on the screen) and other ones - perhaps like yours - would simply cut it off completely unless it's fully supported.

Unless you're missing the obvious (e.g. bad video cable connection) I don't think there's a simple and affordable solution. There are system converters, but I do NOT recommend using those - the cheap Chinese ones for $20 to $40 do not work well and the expensive ones are not worth the money.

If I had this problem - and I did - I'd end up buying a new Wii for the same region of the world that the TV is designed for.

Hope this helps. If it does then please rate it.
