LCD – Why pick LCD?
LCD – If you are looking for speed and brilliance than LCD is for you. Typically an LCD is lightweight, attractive in design, slim and stylish in profile and available in sizes from about 6″ up to 65″ in width. An LCD TV can also be used as a PC monitor with a 1080 pixel HD resolution level without sacrificing any picture quality. Because of its lightweight design, LCD TV’s can be moved around easily and often and placed virtually anywhere. Typical depth of LCD flat screen’s is only about 3″. There are even LCD models available capable of 3D (Three Dimensional) which can also convert 2D images into 3D by simply selecting a button. High end LED backlighting engages clusters of LEDs which are selectively switched on and off for optimal performance. LCD technology also encompasses LED types. LCD’s are very energy-efficient.
