Well that’s a quick overview; but what TV should you go for? Well there are a few things to consider for each type, so we've looked through the options included in our Cashback offer and have come up with a quick guide to give you the lowdown on the latest TV technology.
LCD (Liquid Crystal Displays) TVs: LCD TVs have several good features that should be pointed out. They’re energy efficient, super slim and they come with burn-in resistant technology. The diplay is filled with liquid crystal which is manipulated by incoming signals. Off centre viewing (if it will be positioned at an angle) is very good and they have excellent colour accuracy and depth. LCD TVs tend to be a bit cheaper than LCD, but that’s not because they’re poorer quality, more that Plasma TVs come in bigger sizes (42” and above). Check out our full selection of LCD TVs that are included in the Cashback offer here.
Plasma: The main pros of a Plasma TV are that they are very energy efficient and they offer superior colour rendition, black levels and grayscale technology; this means that even off centre viewing is fantastic. If it’s a big TV you’re after, then Plasma is your best bet; they tend to come in larger sizes than LCD TVs, generally starting at 42” and working up to 60” screens – a true cinematic experience if ever there was one.
Plasma screens generally tend to have brighter colour contrasts, thanks mainly to the higher refresh speed for the individual pixels; meaning that things like live sports will appear free of any blurring.
3D TV: 3D technology is the next big thing in the TV world. It’s becoming more prevalent in gaming, mobile and on the silver screen but now it is possible to enjoy 3D films and TV at home. To watch 3D at home you’ll need a 3D-ready TV, along with some special 3DTV glasses, similar to what you’d get at the cinema when you watch a 3D film. These TVs also offer the same benefits of LCD and Plasma TVs when you watch programmes in 2D too, but they are prepared for the future, with companies such as Sky already developing a dedicated 3D TV channel.
