    Selection of modern TV
  • the Choice between LCD, LED and plasma, it is better to buy?
  • The question here is not that best buy and what or where are You going to buy it, it will help You in the proper and correct choice of the TV . Already wrote but I will repeat it again: plasma or plazmovy (plasma) panel starting from 32 inches (about 80 cm diagonal) and for the average kitchen it doesn't fit You, just not enough space. LCD and LED televisions can be of any size, from pocket, portable, to large (50-60 inch). And those and others do not have thick protective glass in front of the screen (like a CRT) and very afraid of bumps and falls

    In order to better define and better understand these TVs, I suggest to read up a little about them, the more that I tried to provide information simply and clearly as possible: Plazmowe panel, and LCD TVs and LED TV. This knowledge will help You to understand the principles of each type of TV and introduce their main advantages and disadvantages ad

  • Choose LCD or LED TV:
  • The main difference between LCD and LED TVs - in the manner of a matrix illumination (lamps or LEDs). The sellers love the accent on the word "LED" but now You, after reading the article about them (link just above), can take the initiative in their hands and to ask the seller type lights, and to see personally to the angle was the maximum, with no loss of quality paints and flashes - was not.

    Current image sensors are characterized by a good angle and colors, but this does not mean that the LCD TV, the matrix is necessarily worse, just see for yourself on the quality of the picture at different angles. Don't forget that the LCD matrix does not always have a front protective glass, and if it has, it is very thin and not designed for a kick ball, vase and other items bu

    TV also has its own quirks, if the kitchen is limited in size, and the hostess loves to cook. It is no secret that from the "frying-cooking" items, located near the plate, covered with a layer of fat sticky dust, which must be removed is not water and a special detergent which won't like the matrix LED or LCD-TV.

    Based on this, for small kitchen the best fit TV with safety glass in front of the matrix screen that is easy to wash common detergents, because greasy easily reduces to 2-3 times the brightness and contrast of the image on the screen. Importantly, the sunlight from the window hy don't shoot on the glass, but it will have to take the TV without the protective glass (the matrix is virtually no glare), they Shine brighter, but as You already understood, to care for them - more difficult

    If You have little children fm , remember to explain to them that the TV screen, nothing should accidentally "fly", and it will not knock with your hands or a hammer, almost cannot, be sure to consider where You to put or hang and estimate the potential degree of hazard matrix to be broken. Remember that the matrix varies only the entire, and its price is not much different from the price of a new TV

  • Choose a plasma (plasma TV):
  • What is plasma and how these televisions work, You already know from the article: Plasma televisions such TV take, as a rule, for a hall or other large room or space. Plasma TV is very strongly heated, so placing them in a niche Cabinet, or simply limit the ventilation is not recommended, as they "eat" much electricity than is not very suitable for economical owners bl

    Grain (pixels) on a plasma panel zoom than TVs with liquid-crystal matrix, it is not suitable for viewing on close (as we look at the monitor, for example). Repair, plasma cost quite expensive due to the complexity of its schema, diagnostics and cost of parts (blocks), repair plasma at home... this is from the fairy tales, and they fail - just like any other modern technology (often)

    In contrast, you can put a smaller amount digital brake with poor signal, excellent brightness, contrast and color reproduction of the image at any angle. Unlike LCD and LED TVs, LCD matrix which works on the ground she don't Shine, you Shine the lamp or LEDs), plasma shines itself each pixel, resulting in a beautiful deep black color and wide color gamut ab

  • Select 3D TV:
  • 3D TV may be of any type: LCD, LED or plasma (3D is just a format, an optional feature). It is possible that soon, 3D television will become the norm, and TVs with support for 3D-format will be in every home and apartment, but may I strongly recommend You to read the following articles, written specifically for You:
    3D-format, three-dimensional image (part 1)
    3D-format, three-dimensional image (part 2)
    Dangerous! 3D and unreal volume

    Watching movies or playing 3D games on the computer, of course, the lesson exciting and hard to explain to children (and adults too), to get involved in the 3D-view - dangerous to the eye, it would be very unpleasant to wear medical glasses after polarized or shutter ac For a better perception of all the 3D effects, you will want to get the TV as close as possible, and this should not be done, so be careful and monitor the time and distance display dq

    3D TVs that allows you to watch movies and shows in 3D without glasses, which is quite expensive and we, yet, do not exist in the free market, so keep in mind that the 3D glasses to view, will be necessary for everyone looking for such a TV. If you love to watch movies with your family or a large company, acquiring the required number of points, do not forget that the shutter glasses are much more expensive than polarized

    Choosing a 3D TV, think that You're in it to watch and where take a 3D signal as convert 2D signal to 3D is more advertising than reality (my neighbors bought a 3D TV, already had time to verify this, and in articles in the links above, I wrote about it). There is no sense (yet) to pay for a 3D TV to watch it a few times a month 3D movies, then it is better to go to the cinema, there is a real and effects many cm

  • Selection of SMART TV:
  • SMART TV in the smart TV) is a symbiosis of TV and computer, this is not a new type of TV like plasma or LED, is a "video two", i.e. a regular LED or plasma TV with built-in powerful processor, modem and other computer bells and whistles. Its main dignity - direct Internet through built-in modem or Wi-Fi, the presence of browser to find the necessary material (movies, music, photos, games) and the ability online movies "directly from tyrneta", in other words, the SMART TV is geared for multi-media (for more details, read the article: Smart TV-smart TVs are the new generation) bf

    Like any "harvester", Smart-TV will be much more expensive than normal LED or plasma with 3D support, but opportunities will be less than a regular PC. Navigation (control) is via remote (Remote Control), so convenience online you can compare button cell (the same set of text under each figure of a few letters, and a mouse - joystick center). For normal work, You'll need to connect a separate external keyboard with a "mouse", but do not worry, a Smart TV equipped with a "remote keyboards" with a normal text input, just to keep a "remote" one hand will not happen

    Unlike desktop computers, system units which we are constantly looking to clean, the screw is more to put, change video or sound card, RAM add...), Smart-TV access is closed, and the standardization of its blocks is about the same as the parts imported cars: Fig analogue will choose only native to order and only from this model

    So, Smart-TV has a powerful scheme means less bugs in the image, but be prepared for his service, I do not recommend taking models such loan or on all the savings, without the ability to pay for possible repairs. This TV requires a high speed Internet at the installation site, otherwise it defeats the whole point of an expensive purchase, because the remote control can be connected via IR (infrared) port to any laptop or computer, and video with sound - apply directly on a TV bk

  • TV and receiver signal:
  • LCD, LED, plasma - all of them designed for a digital signal (say in the store), I'll tell You a secret, no calculation there, but they are such fast and powerful) can't cope with a simple analog signal, this is too complicated, but... the fact remains: in order to purchased TV show as You saw in the store, You need same the signal source, who was in the store - Blu-ray player or HDTV

    Remember that any compression of the source material (different rips) and admitted in this case a software error lead to a significant reduction in image quality, want quality - forget "rips" size 1 to 3 gig drives on the "10 films", look for "originals" size 20-60 Gig for 1 movie

    If the TV is connected to a conventional air antenna and analog cable television, be prepared for the fact that the image quality will be noticeably different from that which You watched on this TV in the store. Subject to perfect signal, to watch analog TV on LCD and plasma, but with the appearance of the ripples on the canal.... the result the fight for the digital processing of the analog signal is clearly not in favor of digital technology

    Don't forget about format of the TV signal, almost all new TV are available in screen format: 16x9, and stream analog and some digital signals in the format 4x3, what can threaten such a discrepancy, refer to: Formats screen TVs and signal. Broadcast in 16x9 format provides only HDTV, DVD or SAT, however, in our city, digital terrestrial TV yet, and the Internet service providers (savage Garden) just started the stream channels Protocol IPTV format HDTV

    The frequency of the signal and the TV should be the same, only then it is possible to obtain good image quality (read more here: scanning frequency), the frequency of regular (analog) signal - 50Hz, digital - 60Hz, HDTV and 3D - 120Hz, and, mind you, to achieve the transmission of HDTV signal with a frequency of 120Hz (for 3D format) is possible only through HDMI 1.4, essential or online broadcasts with a frequency of 120Hz HDTV no

    Format support HDTV resolution 1920×1080 (Full HD) resolution and the screen is two different things, please note that, in the case of screen resolution, spelled out in the passport of the TV, not 1920×1080, neither of which Full HD cannot be considered. If the number of pixels on the matrix TV will not coincide with the "number of pixels" (information) signal, the TV will be engaged in "clipping" and compression of the signal, and this, of course, affect the image quality (loss of definition) at

    the Permission screen format and zoom

    Please note that the captions on the TV or in its online description, such as: 200 Hz (now fashionable) 500 Hz is the same nonsense as the inscription on the 100-1000 Watt acoustic speakers, size and weight with a loaf of bread ap > > pray Tell, the hell we 200Hz-TV, if max (for today) is a signal with a frequency of 120Hz (ideal and its not yet), but really - 50-60Hz, even for 3D (25-30 frames for one eye - enough). So think whether to buy a drum of the Stradivari", even to check which is impossible, since the 200-500Hz signal - no and filing a 120Hz signal (if you find such), the TV may quietly it crop up to 60Hz (its real frequency), You distinguish to the eye 60 and 120 Hz? ad

  • Connect external devices to the TV:
  • For starters, I recommend to read the materials from the section: Connection equipment, especially this: TV+DVD+receiver, then not turned out that the new TV does not have the desired inputs and connectors. Now comes a lot of "budget" models, with a limited external interface, especially for connecting analog signals from a DVD or satellite receiver (SAT)

    If You plan to connect to the TV DVD and SAT at the same time, make sure you have selected TV has at least two separate analog inputs of type SCART or TULIP. The number of HDMI connectors for digital connections, usually missing, just check that they are present in Your DVD, satellite or audio receiver, and a desired standard (HDMI 1.1,.. HDMI 1.4)

    The headphone Jack is not available in all models, if You cover to use them be sure to check the presence of such socket so as to embed it then - not so easy. Smooth adjustment of sound, especially at the beginning of the scale (the minimum), so does it matter if You like to watch TV at night and someone was sleeping gs

  • the Results on the choice TV:
  • If You read both of the articles and material on related links, then all the conclusions you have already made yourself and know that simple answer to the question: "how to choose a TV and what to buy?...", unfortunately, no bn You need to select the best option based on Your needs (in terms of functions, size, quality) and opportunities, again, that the "sticker" logo "of the manufacturer" does not matter, the main requirement: the TV like, you need to check quality images and presence of the desired functions, do not look at "labels", check, feel free to ask questions to the seller and take your time ab To consolidate the material:

    LCD TV: check the image quality, the resolution, brightness, colors, viewing angle, lack of brakes
    LED TV: look to did not starbursts + all that and LCD
    Plasma: they Shine well; if not brakes, like the size of pixels support formats, power consumption and image quality - take
    3D TV: know the type of glasses (polarized or shutter), I think that'll look in 3D, about 10 minutes looking at the image in the glasses on the distance at which You will be watching it at home, evaluate the condition of the eyes and head (after the view) + all that for LCD, LED or plasma
    SMART TV: carefully check, try and evaluate his work with the Internet, because without it (the Internet), lost all sense of purchase of such "tele-computer"
    TV signal: if analog, must be clean, free of ripples and forks, if you plan to digital - find out in advance the main characteristics (format, resolution, flow rate...) to work with TV was the maximum and not have to buy additional consoles
    be connected: the number and type of connectors for external connections should meet Your requirements or according to the quantity and type of equipment you plan to connect

    Here, like everyone else, I hope that this article helped You navigate the world of modern TV, a good buy az
