Five years ago, I bought a new TV. It was a huge and heavy CRT-type Philips 34" TV. It was HD-ready and was bought just in time for the 2006 World Cup.
The huge 'dinosaur' must have been from the last generation of CRT TVs because soon after it was launched, prices of plasma and LCD TVs started declining and the shops began to dump the big CRT 'dinosaurs'.
Much has changed in five years. Today, LED TVs (actually LED-backlit TVs) are replacing LCD TVs, 3D TVs are in their second generation and a new range of plasma TVs has entered the market.
So after spending much time at Harvey Norman and Best Denki checking out the various types and brands available and prices (and checking the bank account, of course) my wife and I decided to upgrade.
So I telephoned Max of Maxx AV, the home theatre and sub-woofer expert, to ask his opinion.
"These days LED TVs are replacing LCD TVs and I also notice that a new generation of plasma TVs has been launched. I was at a friend's house and watched a Blu-Ray disc on his new Samsung 50" plasma TV and the picture quality was really good. So between an LED TV and a plasma TV, which would you recommend?" I asked Max.
|The Panasonic 50" plasma TV.|
Max was right, the colours are indeed more natural.
