Did u go to the electronic chains to check out? If no, then i reckon u shud. 1 conspiracy theory applicable here cud be that the dealer wants to sell u the CRT, which wud ultimately be a non-moving stock for him.
Thanks Jaymin, I am thinking of LED or an LCD not plasma,
What is electronic chains? googled it but dont see what it means
No, both the dealers never had any CRT TV show cased. I compared it against my current CRT TV.
I am now thinking of a 40" full HD LCD TV. playing both LCD and LED simultaneously with same video, i did not notice much difference. But LCDs are lot cheaper compared to LEDs. Dealers talked about black colors being very black in LED tv against LCDs. But it seems this difference will be noticable only when you watch TV in total dark room. In my case i may not see TV in Total darkness. Also i realized that these LED TVs are edge lit. meaning there is no LED behind every pixel but only on the corners of the LCD screen. So the difference is instead of a cfl lamp in an LCD there is an LED in an LCD TV. TRUE LED TVs are mind blowingly costly. after knowing this, i am inclined towards LCDs which are cheaper and established technology.
Other than true black, few more watts of power saving, do edge lit LEDs have more advantages?
