Children are taught early that an excess of anything is a bad thing. But is this true when watching television? Of course spending all of your time watching TV is bad for your health, but what about if you could increase the quality of your viewing pleasure? Flat screen TVs fall under that definition of bigger is better for the most part, but you have to know the difference before you jump into such a major purchase.
The problem in the past was that not all flat screen televisions were better than their round screen cousins. The flat screen monitor for the computer was very popular and gave a high density resolution. That flat screen was applied to big screen televisions. There is a huge problem with those huge monstrosities. As the screen size was increased, color and resolution became distorted. Therefore, a person would have a giant picture, but the quality wasn’t as good as that of small 27″ televisions.
When people discuss flat screen TVs in today’s technologically advanced world, most are referring to a LCD or plasma television. With a plasma TV, the size of the screen does not matter, as far as the resolution is concerned. The high concentration of pixels and corresponding programming in the television can offer up an incredibly clear and crisp picture. The 52″ has the same picture quality as the 40″ and sometimes comes equipped with motion software that makes on-screen movements very fluid.
As with anything being too much, sometimes the prices for these televisions can be more than the average consumer wishes to spend. Flat screen televisions are quite expensive when compared to their cathode-ray cousins. Consumers are going to pay for that technology. A 52″ HDTV plasma television from Samsung runs close to $8,000.00 and that may be more than you want to spend on a boob tube.
Most people still find flat screen TVs a bit expensive and are hesitant to pay so much for a television. You have to remember that ten years ago, the price for a television set was not much more than what is being asked today. A good quality and size LCD can be purchased at a major retailer for around $700.00. You may even be able to find a sale and purchase one at an even lower price.
