The aspect ratio of Liquid Crystal Display televisions is one of their most obvious weaknesses. It is seen that even the most expensive and high class LCD displays have a measly max aspect ratio of 1600:1, this is due to light being able to pass through to the liquid crystal screen even when the television is in it’s switched off position. This shows just how precise this type of technology is.
Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology approached the market recently and exploded like crazy over the last couple of years with the introduction of Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology. This system is comprised of filling the back panel with RGB LEDs and then adding a rim of White LEDs around the edge, that act simultaneously through a diffusion panel to light the screen evenly and controllably.
So why would certainly you want an LED TV?
The Light Emitting Diodes used in this brand-new technology are some of the lightest and thinnest commercial light sources in the world and therefore, the lightest and thinnest produced televisions are LED TVs. Some LED TVs can be as thin as just a few millimeters. Alongside this, the fashion for interior design at the moment, as you may well know, is the simplistic, White, Glass, Bold Colors and Piano-complete Black look, which makes these sleek, slim and unique televisions perfect for homes in this day in age.
Furthermore, LCD televisions come with major limitations with regards to viewing angle and glare, which can especially be a problem in large open plan rooms. LED TVs counteract this perfectly by combining the LED technology with thick, high grade glass and anti-glare technology that reduces this significantly, allowing for a much greater viewing angle.
Being good to the environment is definitely the believed on everyone’s mind, and for good reason too! The polar ice caps are melting and it is the job of every industry to reduce the amount of power and therefore fossil fuels their products are designed to consume. LED TVs can output a more clear, brighter and vivid image than their LCD opponents using much less power.
Lastly, the next big thing in the world is 3D technology. The idea of having animals, weather effects and actors/actresses coming out of the TV into people’shomes is driving the world nuts. If you also like the idea of this futuristic technology then a 3D LED HDTV is the perfect option, providing a sleek design, lower power consumption, a bright and strong HD image and of course, the most effective 3D technology available.
LED TVs are very dynamic in terms of size and can range from small 21.5 inch monitors, all the way up to giant 70 inch screens. However, personally I feel that the perfect television for an average sized home is a Samsung 55 inch LED TV.
