DLP, LCD or Plasma?
The type of TV you buy is very important. The type of TV you choose will depend mostly on what you will watch on the TV. The three common types of TVs are DLP, LCD, and Plasma. My favorite type of the three is DLP. I don't like plasma because it is older, less advanced, and has some nagging issues to it like image freezing. LCDs are definitely great TVs, however they don't have all the great features to make them better than a DLP.
DLP stands for Digital Light Processing, and TVs using it are spectacular. DLPs are made of thousands of tiny little mirrors reflecting light to the screen. This technology is brilliant because it makes the image brighter. These mirrors are also great because they minimize the amount of space between pixels, so in other words the mirrors increase resolution.
DLPs are also great for viewing motion. Sports, action movies and other forms of video motion look crystal clear on DLPs. There is significantly less motion blur on DLPs than other types of HDTVs. Why is that? DLPs use an exclusive microchip that has response time of 16 microseconds. It takes the TV less than 16 microseconds to respond to the moving pixels of the video — that is amazingly fast. DLPs also have no chance of an image burning in. Unlike plasmas which use tubes that can retain picture, DLPs use nothing but mirror-like hardware to display images so there is no internal hardware that could cause burn-in.
Remember, the type of TV you buy will depend on what you watch. DLPs are the most versatile TV as they are superb for all types of video and they exceed standards in sports and video game entertainment.
