When we look back into the history of LED TV’s we will find that this TV sets are nothing but an extension of the LCD TV’s. Now if they are an extension of LCD TV’s is there no difference between the two? To answer that it must be said that there lies a difference; the technology in built in a LCD system needs a cold cathode fluorescent lighting (CCFL) for its backlit which off let is replaced by the LEDs as they are more adaptable and nippy in nature. This also affects the structure of the TV set which is made thinner in nature so that the light is projected from the middle while LEDs are rooted to the four sides of the set. Another difference that a LED set brings is the efficiency in power consumption which adds value from the consumers’ point of view. We will discuss the three best LED TV sets at the present scenario:
3. Vizio M3D550KD
At a suggested price of US$2700, this VIZIO set is manufactured to provide a meticulous color contrast than other sets that are available at the present point of time. The size of the screen is around 55’ and the theatre quality is crystal clear along with SRS studio sound which makes home viewing of movies nothing short of spectacular. Various applications are preinstalled in the set along with an in-built Wi-Fi and a 2 sided remote with keyboard facility. Few downers do remain with the set and one of them being showcasing casual artifacts and moving lines while 3-D is operated. However with all the pluses in VIZIO’s kitty this remains one of the most demanding sets than its current contemporaries.
2. Samsung UN55ES8000F
Samsung delivers a cracking smart TV set with smart TV technology; voice control navigation, dual core processor and gesture control functions. The screen size is 55’ while the picture resolution is 1920*1080. The set has a touch pad remote and four pair of 3-D sunglasses. Wi-Fi and camera is in-built in the system and a 2-D and HD picture quality is observed in this set. However some downers do remain and of them being the back light which is a complete dud for such kind of set and hence picture quality is affected to a certain degree. Along with this some extra features are inappropriately installed and largely avoidable. Various online shopping centers are quoting a price for this Samsung set which is in the range of US$1700 to US$4000.
1. Sony Bravia XBR-55HX950
At a screen size of 54.6” and maintaining a picture resolution of 1920*1080, this LED set brings joy to the eyes and gives a realistic feeling while watching it. Color contrast remains one of the high points as it is imaginable while the picture quality brings a ‘laser-honed’ definiteness. Wi-Fi and 3-D technology are in-built while a HD picture quality is available from the internet connection. The designing of the ultra slim set looks amazing because of the assimilation of the ‘Corning Gorilla Glass’ which gives an edge to edge glass feel. Various applications are preinstalled in this TV set thus making it a reasonable buy at a price ranging from US$2500 to US$3000.
