LCD TVs Boast Rapidly Improving Benefits
In the modern television electronics filed, the landscape is constantly changing and what was true just a fewmonths ago may not be true now. As HDTV broadcasting stands to come into it's own as this year progresses, there are several surrounding technologies that are on the fast track for improvement as well.
One of those is LCD monitors used for displaying the HDTV signal. Actaully there are three major competing screen technologies at this point and they all have certain unique characteristics that can influence your buying decision. Of course, any of them would be a major improvement on the old
CRT displays that have been in prevalent use for many years now. These three monitor types are LCD, DLP, and plasma screens.
For the sake of this article, let's discuss LCD monitors and how manufacturers are making improvements that are diminishing the drawbacks that have been associated with LCD TVs.
The main advantages of LCD monitors is that they are thin and light, relatively speaking, and can display an incredible range of colors, making them a favorite of many viewers. They can also be used for computer displays as well, for those that are so inclined. At the same time though, some of the disadvantages that drew complaints were the limited viewing angles and the high expense associated with larger screen sizes.
Well, those problems are starting to be addressed by the major LCD makers, and the latest LCD TVs boast a much improved viewing angle. Previously, you pretty much had to be sitting right in front of a LCD monitor to be able to get the best picture and as you moved sideways away from the center of the TV the clarity and sharpness diminished fairly rapidly. That irritating situation has been much improved in the latest LCD monitors and now you can view them easily and comfortably from as much as 150 degrees to either side.
On the price front, that too has been improved as the cost for larger screen sizes continues to drop and so now LCD screens that are larger than 40 inches have seen their prices fall much faster than those in the smaller sizes. So as LCDs become more accepted in the television viewing world,some of the least desirable peculiarities of them have been steadily improved to the point where there almost isn't any really good reason not to own one.
