Top 3 Tips For Buying An
by: Amy Metz
I want a larger screen and so do you. There is absolutely no reason for
this wanting except for the feeling of power that a large screen gives
you. I have no idea why it is, but we all seem to want a larger screen for
our TVs these days. The question is, how to get a good deal on an LCD TV
without paying a fortune. Let’s give you our top 3 tips on buying an LCD
1)Don’t buy a used one if you don’t have to. The funny thing about
these TVs is that their prices drop significantly every month and that if
you just wait a little longer, the price you’ll pay for a new TV is
probably not going to be too far off from the price that you are going to
pay for a used one. A little patience might actually save you some dollars
2)Compare features, not just prices. One of our favorite places to go
to compare prices on LCD Tvs is ConsumerReports.org. Consumer Reports was
rating different items way before the internet even become popular.
Remember buying your first real car? I do. And I went straight to Consumer
Reports to find out that the Honda Accord was the car to buy (and still is
according to CR). Shopping for a high end LCD Tv shouldn’t be any
different than shopping for a new car. All the resources are at your
disposal, so give it a try. I’m sure you can find some gems of information
at CR regarding your LCD Tv purchase.
3)HD is coming, don’t miss out. High definition television has
allegedly been “right around the corner” for years. Well, that time may
finally have arrived. Some LCD Tvs come HD ready and some do not. Make
sure your new LCD TV supports HD so that when it is finally popularized,
you can watch the programs utilizing this latest technology.
And by the way, why would someone want to buy an LCD TV over a
“Plasma”. And what is a plasma? Are they different than LCDs? Basically
yes. The big difference is that they use different technologies to deliver
a picture. Both have pros and cons. However, both deliver a large screen
experience to the user.
