Buy hdtv from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Tons of great TV deals on the market today, this list has some of the best deals.

The TV market is booming and there are tons of offering on the market today. There are multiple screen sizes to allow the user to get the screen that is perfect for their space. There are many different technologies in the TV market today too.
You can get plasma HDTVs, LED HDTVs, and LCD HDTVs. All of the different technologies will work for most folks, but there are some differences. The best image quality and color is generally had on LED backlit sets and the LED HDTVs typical consume less power than other sets too. The LCD HDTV is the standard set that had been around for a long time now. These sets use a different backlight than LED TVs and they consume more power and generally have less image quality than the LED sets.

The third major tech on the market is plasma. Plasma sort of went away for a while and has made a comeback over the last few years. The benefit of many plasma sets is more brightness and contrast than other HDTVs. You can get 3D sets in these lines of offerings too, just be sure you have enough glasses and a 3D source before you buy.

Most of the HDTVs today will support 1080p, but there are still a few that stop at 720p. Many people can’t tell the difference between 1080p and 720p content, but once you get to larger screen sizes the differences are obvious. Smart TVs are big on the TV market today and will allow you access to web features on the big screen. You will find sets in various price ranges that are Smart TVs

Generally when shopping for a TV I suggest people start with an appropriate screen size and then buy based on budget. The higher the contrast ratio, the better your image will be.
