LCD TVs provide a good viewing experience at a decent price, which makes them a good choice for the average household. These TVs may also be referred to as LED TVs in reference to an important differentiation in early models, which may have used a different type of illumination for backlighting. All LCD TVs made today use LED lighting. Making LED And LCD TVs essentially the same product. Like other flat-screen models, LCD TVs come in a variety of sizes. A smaller 22” is generally a good choice for an office or small bedroom. Larger models, up to 75” are available for family viewing. When making the best choice for your home, consider if you would like a Smart-TV, which already has integrated streaming video services, or if you believe you will use an ancillary for those services, or will not need a device at all. The TVs without “Smart TV” functions will cost less but can still provide you an excellent image at a low price.
