HDTV types and comparisons


There are many HDTV types. they range in size, price, and features greatly. You can pick up an HDTV for as little as a few hundred dollars up to a few thousand dollars.
different types of HDTVs:
  • tube TV (CRT, direct view TV)
  • LCD
  • plasma
  • projector
  • projection TV

    tube TV

    Tube HDTV is the original classic style of TV that has been known and loved by many since the first transmission of TV signals. They offer the best value when purchasing a smaller TV that can fit into a traditional entertainment center or in the corner cabinet of the den.
    Pros:
  • tube (CRT) TVs can produce deeper, darker blacks than any other type
  • bright enough to be viewed in a well lit room
  • colors remain intact regardless of viewing angle
    cons:
  • they are heavy for their size
  • size is limited
    LCD

    The LCD TV uses light sent through liquid crystals to display the image. they also provide a very clear sharp picture and are even wall mountable
    pros:
  • are ultra lightweight and can be mounted on a wall
  • use less power than the other wall mountable technology (plasma)
  • are immune to burn in compared to plasma TVs and projection TVs
    cons:
  • extreme brightness comes at an expense that id does not reproduce blacks as well as tube TVS or Projection TVs

    plasma

    Plasma is a technology that uses electrons charging up plasma gas cells to create an image. Plasma is wall mountable, and has very a bright screen.
    pros:
  • is lightweight and it is wall mountable
  • can run cheaper than LCD TVs cons
  • uses more power than an LCD screen
  • Can be susceptible to burn-in issues When Video game displays are on screen for long periods of time or movies are paused for extended periods of time
  • It is hard to find a Full 1080p plasma unless you are going really big on size.

    HDTV Projector:

    HDTV projectors are a technology from the movie theater industry. the idea is that of a home theater system. the screen size is virtually limited by the size of your wall
    Pros:
  • Unlimited screen size
  • Cheapest per inch cost when you are going BIG
  • Projector can be transported for other uses
    Cons:
  • Requires setting up a screen and speakers to use
  • Blocked image when screen is interfered with (I'm sure u all know of someone who uses do do puppet shows at the movies)
  • usually doesn't have a TV tuner built in.

    Projection TV

    a HDTV projection TV is similar to a projector, but instead of the image coming from in front of the screen, an image is projected from behind the screen
    pros:
  • is lightweight and it is wall mountable
  • can run cheaper than LCD TVs cons
  • uses more power than an LCD screen
  • Can be susceptible to burn-in issues When Video game displays are on screen for long periods of time or movies are paused for extended periods of time
  • It is hard to find a Full 1080p plasma unless you are going really big on size.

    Projection TV

    a HDTV projection TV is similar to a projector, but instead of the image coming from in front of the screen, an image is projected from behind the screen, getting rid of the front interference effect. some new technologies include brighter picture and slimmer cabinets
    pros:
  • big picture size for a low cost
  • newer technologies have wider viewing angles
  • newer technologies reduced cabinet size significantly
    cons:
  • is not as bright as an LCD or a plasma
  • can be susceptible to burn-in when viewing static images for long periods of time(newer DLP and LCD projection TVs prevent this)
  • can be very bulky
  • less viewing angle than a plasma or and LCD TV
