How to Find the Best LCD TVs Cheap

by: Brian Stevens

LCD TVs are one of the hottest electronic products on the market today. But, boy, are they expensive, with prices starting at around $900 for a good quality LCD TV. And some LCD have been know to poop out after just a couple of months use.

So how do you find a good quality LCD TV at the best possible price? Here's the secret ...

LCD (light crystal display) TVs are constructed of a thin layer of liquid crystals sandwiched between two plates made of glass. When electricity passes through the colored crystals they light up to produce a picture.

LCD screens are now the most popular screens for computers and are quickly gaining in popularity as television screens.

LCD TV Features
The best LCD TVs have the following features:

  • Super sharp picture - LCD TVs have almost twice the clarity of tube TVs and are now comparable in clarity to plasma TVs. Watching an HD (high definition) program on an LCD TV is like looking at a scene through a window.
  • Light weight - Even large LCD TVs weigh less than 40 pounds so you can easily move them anywhere in your home. And LCD TVs are thin so you can place them almost anywhere, even mount them on a wall.
  • Long life - LCD TVs have an average screen life of 60,000 hours, almost twice that of some plasma TVs, and they aren't prone to screen "burn in" as are tube and plasma TVs, so they're better for playing video games.
  • Cheap to operate - LCD TVs use much less electricity than either tube TVs or plasma TVs.

How to Get the Best Price on an LCD TV
The first thing you need to do is figure out which size and model LCD TV you want.

The best way to do that is to visit the largest electronics store or discount store in your area and take a look at the various LCD TV models. Check out the screen for color and clarity. Grab the remote, check out all the functions, and find out if it's easy to use. Then find a knowledgeable salesperson and ask him or her any questions you may have.

When you feel you have enough information to make an informed decision as to which make and model of LCD TV you want, head back to your home, fire up your computer, and begin searching for LCD TVs on the Internet.

There are various product comparison sites on the Internet that allow you to compare prices and even give you reviews that show you which products are best. The website I use not only compares product prices and gives you expert reviews, it also provides consumer reviews by people who own the product.

If you're leery about buying an LCD TV from and unknown store, this website gives you consumer reviews of the store so you can find out if they're reputable and if they'll give good service.

I used to go to discount warehouses to shop for big ticket items like LCD TVs. But now, because I've saved hundreds of dollars shopping online and have gotten the best products thanks to the consumer reviews, I do my shopping online. Try it. I know you'll like it.
