Before Buying your First LCD Hdtv

By: IC

Everyone wants quality and affordable LCD HDTV and all manufacturers say that their TVs are both of high quality and affordable. So is that mean all LCD HDTV out there worth buying? How does a customer choose the right LCD HDTV? Well the answer is it all depends on your needs. Will you use it to play games or an alternate computer monitor or just simply to watch tv programs? When you're anxious to buy your first HDTV take a deep breath and relax. You'll need a cool head to choose between all those brands and models.

Okay, let's start. Some things to look for on an LCD HDTV are it's maximum resolution, color depth, and refresh rates. The higher the numbers the better. First is the maximum resolution. Current LCD TV market mainly offers 720p and 1080p resolution. However, if you want the highest definition, that would be 1080p (1920x1080). This resolution is now coming onto more and more monitors, but it also comes with a higher price tag. You can clearly see the difference in image resolution between a 720p TV and a 1080p TV. So, don't waste your money to buy cheaper yet lower resolution TVs only to become disenchanted with it in a couple of months later and then scoop your pocket again to get a 1080p HDTV.

Next is the color depth and refresh rates. You'll want the highest possible color depth and refresh rates. High color depth means that the images will have natural colors. Red looks red, green looks green, black look pitch black instead of dark grey and white looks pure white instead of light yellowish color. High refresh rate is especially noticeable when you're watching fast movements either in movies or games. The high refresh rate allows the image transition looking smooth.

So, now that you got the resolution, color depth and refresh rates taken care of it's time to look at the other aspect for example the speaker. The built in speakers you'll find in a LCD HDTV usually have so so quality. So if when buy it's probably better to go to your local store and listen to the sound. Ask the seller to play an action dvd or something like that and lister for yourself. If you're not really sure what a great speaker should sound like then you could try reading the online reviews for the TVs. Learning from other's experience and opinions can make your buying decision a lot easier.

Other things you may want to consider before buying are the TV design (will it look good in the TV room?), whether it has a built-in Digital Tuner (so you can take advantage of the new Digital broadcast signals), is a wall mount included (so you can hang it on the bedroom wall) and other accessories. They may not be all that important but you sure want to get the best bang for your buck right?
