LCD, LED or Plasma?

Dec 20, 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’s everything you’ll need to know to help you make the right decision.

Visually Stunning

Samsung LED Backlighting Technology delivers breakthrough picture quality in an ultra slim design. These TVs offer mega contrast ratios—the brightest white to the darkest black a TV is capable of producing— and advanced internet connectivity features that let you download apps to your TV. These are Samsung’s best TVs ever.

LED (light-emitting diode) screens are actually LCD screens that use LED lights behind the screen. This can be done in two ways—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-Saving and Easy to Wall-Mount

LED TVs are highly efficient power consumers. In fact, depending on the series and screen size, Samsung’s LED TVs in standard mode can be up to 50 percent more efficient than the latest ENERGY STAR specifications.

These TVs are lightweight, easy to wall-mount and move from one room to another. They work equally 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

Lightweight, stylish and slim. Our LCD TVs are as the way you would like, and anywhere from about 5” all the way up to 65”.

Also Use as a PC Monitor Full 1080p HD Resolution

LCDs can be moved around easily or placed 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 slim and sophisticated design, our plasmas offer an amazing picture with smooth action scenes, the deepest blacks, and brightest whites.

Sharp Realism

Plasma offers a large screen size (which ranges typically from 42” to 63”). It works well in dimly lit rooms (which is great for watching movies), offers high contrast ratios, gorgeously saturated colours, and allows for wide viewing angles—meaning every seat in the house is a great one.

Ideal for Sports

Because it can track fast-moving images without motion blur, plasma TVs 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”, 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:

Which room are you buying the TV for?

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 favourite apps?

Do you want to enhance your home décor with slim, high-tech design, such as a brushed titanium or charcoal grey set?
