How to choose the right LCD TV?
So, you decided to purchase an LCD TV. Here are a few simple rules.
Of course, the first thing that captures our view ofThe TV is its size. More precisely, the diagonal. Of course the more the TV, the better. But it is not always the case. The distance from the TV to the place where you are while watching is important. Not many people know that the larger the diagonal, the greater the distance to the sofa. The optimal distance is 3-4 times greater than the diagonal of the TV. This will provide the best comfort.
The next parameter to be reversedAttention is permission. This value is expressed in pixels. Pixel is the minimum graphic unit of the TV display. It contains information about the display of red, green and blue colors. A lot of pixels make up the image. Therefore, the higher the resolution (more pixels), the better the transmitted picture. It is important to know that for viewing ordinary television broadcasts, 800x600 resolution will suffice (since in Russia TV shows are broadcasted according to this standard). However, for watching DVD movies, the resolution should be as good as possible. The most qualitative is the digital format of television, for him the best resolution is 1920x1080 pixels.
The response time of the TV is the speedSwitching between black and white. The shorter the response time, the better the color rendering, and one image will not overlap. It is better if the response time does not exceed 8 milliseconds (ms).
The main color characteristic of the LCD TV -It's brightness and contrast. Contrast is the ratio of the brightness of the lightest and darkest parts of the image, it helps to convey the depth of color. The contrast ratio can be 600: 1, 800: 1, 1000: 1. The higher the ratio, the better. Brightness is crucial when watching TV under different lighting conditions, i.e. In the light and dark time of the day. If the brightness is insufficient, your eyes will be very tired, and you will not get any pleasure from viewing. The brightness with a value of 450 cd / m2 is considered normal. Such a TV will be pleasant to look at both daylight and artificial light, at the same time as the color transfer will remain absolutely adequate. Some modern models of LCD TVs have a built-in sensor that adjusts the brightness automatically.
You probably noticed that if you lookThe LCD TV is at different angles (for example, from the side, but not in the center), then the image is somewhat distorted. This value is called the viewing angle. It is more comfortable to watch TV with a viewing angle close to 180 degrees (177-179), this requirement is met by most modern models. The very first LCD TVs had a viewing angle much smaller, but progress, as you know, does not stand still.
Sound transmission is also important. The main characteristic of sound is its intensity, not power, as many people think. The intensity is measured in decibels (dB). The higher the intensity, the louder the TV sound is played. Power, as measured in Watts, affects the sound quality not significantly. Typically, manufacturers on the TV box write a power of 100 watts, but in terms of sound quality, you hardly understand what power characteristics, has a TV speaker system. Much more attention is paid to intensity.
A few words about "exits" and "entrances". They are usually located on the back of the TV. All modern models contain enough ports for connecting a DVD player, camera and other devices. Well, if the TV has a USB port, then you can view your favorite photos from the TV screen or listen to your favorite tunes by connecting your camera or MP3 player.
On the design and color scheme of the TV enclosure, it is probably not worth talking about, because They can be very different. This is already a matter of taste.
So we reviewed the most important characteristics of LCD TVs. The choice is yours! Enjoy watching!
