LCD, LED or Plasma?

Dec 21, 2011

With their smart, innovative design, today’s flat-panel TVs offer an array of sizes, technologies and characteristics. Buying a new one means making a number of choices, and that means determining exactly what you need or want. Here are some things that you’ll need to know when buying a TV.

Visually Stunning

Samsung LED* technology delivers excellent picture quality in an ultra slim design. These TVs offer mega contrast ratios, bright whites to the dark black, and advanced internet connectivity features that let you download apps^ to your TV. These are amongst Samsung’s best TVs.
LED* (light-emitting diode) screens are actually LCD screens that use LED lights behind the screen. This can be done in two ways: either by using LEDs across the entire back of the display or just around the perimeter of the display which is known as “edge-lit.” This second kind of display uses a diffusion panel to spread light across the entire screen.

Energy-Efficient Ratings

LED* TVs now feature an energy rating label that allows you to compare their energy efficiency to similar products. Samsung LED* TV’s are rated with energy star labels of up to 7 Stars, depending on the series and screen size. When it comes to energy labels, the mores stars the better!
These TVs are lightweight, easy to wall-mount and can be moved from one room to another. They work well in dark or brightly lit rooms and come in a range of sizes. Some models are 3D capable and can even convert 2D movies to 3D with the touch of a button.**

Speed and Brilliance

Most of our LCD TVs are lightweight, stylish and slim. Our LCD TVs range from about 19” inches all the way up to 40”inches.

Also Use as a PC Monitor Full 1080p HD Resolution

LCDs can be moved around easily or placed almost anywhere. You can use them as both a superb PC monitor and an amazing TV without sacrificing picture quality. Cabinet depth is only two or three inches, giving them a slim, stylish profile. Some models are 3D capable and can convert 2D images to 3D with the touch of a button.**

Smooth Action

Plasma screens light up small cells of gases (xenon and neon) between two plates of glass, which offer very bright, crisp images even on a large screen surface. With a sophisticated design, plasmas offer an amazing picture with smooth action scenes, the deep blacks and bright whites.

Sharp Realism

Samsung Plasmas are available in a variety of sizes typically from 41” to 64” inches. It works well in dimly lit rooms (which are great for watching movies). Samsung Plasmas offer high contrast ratios, gorgeously saturated colours and allows for wide viewing angles. Every seat in the house is a great one.

Ideal for Sports

Because it can track fast-moving images without motion blur, plasma TV’s are ideal for watching action-packed sports or playing video games. The sharpness of visual detail is astonishing. With cabinet depths now as thin as 1.4”, Samsung plasma profiles have never been slimmer. Some models are 3D capable and can convert 2D images to 3D with the touch of a button.**

Questions to Ask Before Shopping:

Do you want a huge wall-mounted screen for a cinema-like effect? Or something that is more portable?

Do you need PC connectivity or Internet connectivity, so you can download your favourite apps^?
