Your television is the centerpiece of your home entertainment system. Whether you plan on watching a big sporting event or the latest blockbuster to come out on Blu-ray, having a top-of-the-line TV is a must. Before you pick out your new TV, let's take a look at each type so you can get the perfect set for your home.
Types of Televisions
In light emitting diode, or LED TV sets there is a back panel of LEDs that backlight the image. This makes the set far lighter than both LCD and plasma TVs.
Liquid crystal display, or LCD TVs are similar to LED, but are backlit by a cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL).
Plasma television screens are built of small cells that are full of a gas. When electricity passes through, it excites the gas and creates an image. The technology used in these TVs make them nearly immune to motion blur.

OLED TVs stands for organic light-emitting diodes and are an advanced version of an LED model. Electricity is forced through organic materials that glow specific colors to project images on the screen, making it lighter, thinner and more efficient than other models.
