Despite their slim dimensions LCD TVs produce flicker and distortion free images. Plasma TVs have better contrast and black levels, but the LCD continues to close the gap thanks to LED technology. Those looking for more spaciality in their living room images will seize the chance of a 3D TV. Projectors are used more by hard-core home cinema enthusiasts, while the cheap CRT and rear-projection TVs barely remain in existence nowadays.


For several years flat-screen TVs have been the trend. Particularly prevalent are LCD TVs which use only a small amount of power and provide a high luminosity. Unlike CRT TVs, LCD televisions are flicker and distortion free, because the image is constructed simultaneously by the transistors instead of being displayed line by line. Besides the classic cold cathode tube backlighting, there are now LCD TVs with LED backlighting, which have a better contrast ratio and lower power consumption. Plasma TVs, however, use ionized gas to stimulate the bulb and, compared to conventional backlit LCD TVs, they offer higher contrast and black levels so are popular with film buffs. The disadvantage is the higher power consumption and lower luminosity. Anyone who wishes to enjoy Blu-ray movies in the best possible quality will need to ensure they purchase a Full HD TV with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and HDMI cables will be needed to connect the player to the telly in order to transmit the HD signal. Those not wanting to use an external receiver for their DVB-T (aerial), DVB-C (cable) or DVB-S and DVB-S2 (satellite) signal will also need to make sure the TV has an in-built tuner. In order to ensure the full spatial effects of 3D in your living room, a 3D television, 3D Blu-ray player and 3D glasses are currently essential requirements, although this will possibly change with the development of glasses free 3D technology. Some televisions can even convert normal 2D signals into 3D images. Many devices also offer USB ports, SD card readers, Ethernet jacks and built-in or optional Wi-Fi, and depending on the model you can upload software updates, play multimedia files, and record TV programmes using the USB or card reader. Content can be retrieved from the internet or a home network by connecting to the network with a LAN or WLAN device. Internal hard drives are being installed to some extent by manufacturers, and even docking ports for interaction with iPods or iPhones are also becoming more frequent. Traditional CRT and rear-projection televisions are rarely sold nowadays, while projectors are still recommended as an attractive alternative owing to their imposing projection diagonals. Anyone wishing to confirm that the new device uses as little electricity as the manufacturer claims should check this for themselves using a cost of electricity measuring device.
