People who love TV are loving the LED flat panel technology. Even though it has been around for almost a decade now, it has come a long way from the TVs your parents watched as kids, that is for certain. Today, you have more options than ever before, since there are more types of flat panels than ever before. If you are not sure what to buy, here is a list of your options to help you narrow it down.
When you go into a store to look at and buy LED flat panels, you may see something next to traditional LEDs. They are labeled OLEDs. What does the extra "O" stand for? It stands for "organic," which refers to its organic film layer charged by an electrical impulse that is transferred to the light emitting diodes in the TV screen. This organic layer is produced from bioluminescent animals, which makes the panel brighter and more vibrant and darker blacks even darker onscreen.
LCD Flat Screens
LCDs, or liquid crystal displays, are flat screens loaded with a liquid crystal fluid. (If you were to smash your LCD screen, the fluid would leak out everywhere and look like your TV was bleeding.) The floating fluid delivers more light and reflects more light when projecting images. LCD screens are still around, but the technology is slowly being phased out.
Smart TVs are TVs that have internet WiFi connectivity capabilities built into them. They utilize a number of free apps that allow you to view and stream TV, movies, and movie clips from some of the most popular streaming services via the WiFi signals your Smart TV receives. You can even search the internet and browse through many popular shopping sites, all from your TV. Many people enjoy having a Smart TV because then they do not need extra plug-in gadgets to stream TV shows and movies.
TVs with 4K resolution have four thousand pixels per screen, regardless of the size of the screen. This kind of resolution is higher than standard "hi-def" resolution. It allows you to see every single imperfection in the human face, up close and personal. It also makes an ocean of fish look as though they are swimming right through your living room. Right now, 4K TVs are in competition with 3D TVs, but almost everyone looking to buy a TV is likely to buy a 4K set.
