Everyone today wants to own a flat screen TV. The kind of viewing experience these electrical devices offer is the latest. It is no longer about viewing but how the viewing is done.

Benefits of an LCD TV


Wide viewing angle

Unlike other television sets with a flat screen TV there is no need for you to sit directly facing the screen. The viewing angle is normally 175 degrees. You can sit where you want and still be able to watch the screen.

Great resolution

Flat screen TVs have this incredible resolution. This is because they have the ability to display images and graphics in HD.  So you just don’t see the images but you see them as if they were in the same room with you.

Light in weight

Old television sets are quite heavy and bulky. Flat screen TVs do not contain tubes or lamps hence they are mobile and allows TV mounting on walls.

The myths


Well not everything you hear about LCDs is true. There are myths that surround the subject hence the need for debunking by giving the correct information.

Flat screen TVs contain actual liquid

No LCDs do not contain real liquid. They simply contain liquid crystals which have crystalline structure so no moving liquid. The crystals real to electric current are quite a common feature in display devices.

LCD TVs last forever

Even humans have a lifespan. LCD TVs don’t last forever. They have an average lifespan of 60,000 hours. If you are not the kind of person who sits in front of the television 8 hours per day then you can look forward to enjoying your favorite programs from the same screen for two decades.

The monitors get burned internally

An LCD TV does not burn in. this is because its monitors were designed to block light. This is because the Liquid crystals are not the light source. There is actually a bulb that controls light intensity with the help of the crystals.

You cannot view from the side

LCD TVs can be viewed from the side. You can actually view some 80 degrees off axis but the picture won’t be of good quality. You will notice changes in contrast, brightness and color saturation.

LCD and LED TV are the same

These two are not the same. The similarity is in construction whereby they both have a flat screen. LCD employs liquid crystal technology and uses fluorescent lighting. LED TVs use light emitting diode backlighting. Most people say the two are the same simply because of what they see on the surface but truth is that the two are different.

So if you are considering buying a flat screen TV then you should have the right kind of information so as to make an informed decision. Flat screen TV installation is a great addition to your home theatre collection. Just ensure that you are able to separate the myths from the facts before calling home automation services to install TV.
