A new innovation in flat screen TV has arrived in the form of the new LED televisions. This type of ultra slim low weight television unit has shaken up the world of flat screen TVs and is set to change the way we watch television at home.
LED TVs have some great features that make them different to LCD and plasma flat screen televisions. LED televisions are not a totally new type of HDTV; they have come about through improvements to the backlighting systems on LCD televisions. Therefore, LED TVs are still LCD television with different LED lighting on the back panel that produces a better quality picture. The improvements to the LCD HDTV backlight have involved the addition of LED light bulbs. By adding LED lights to the back of the screens means these televisions are able to offer a better dynamic contrast rate, motion flow, sharpness and colour variation that a standard LCD cannot.
The biggest manufactures Panasonic, Sony, Philips, LG, Sharp, Samsung, and Toshiba have all taken a huge liking to LED HDTVs because of what this technology is able to offer their customers. Recently when it comes to awards and test winners, LED televisions have been winning 5 star reviews in all the major home cinema magazines and you can see what awards they have won on the Sound and Vision website.
At Sound and Vision we give you the information and product details the magazines and forums cannot. We will give you honest reliable and genuine advice that will make your buying process a simple straight forward task.
Comparisons can be made between LED TVs and plasma televisions and there are similarities but there are a lot of advantages to owning a new affordable LED television. LED HDTVs offer low power consumption, an ultra slim design and a fantastic picture quality. LED televisions offer an incredible contrast ratio delivering incredibly bright whites and deep dark blacks. Many LED television owners believe that LED TVs offer the most natural realistic colours, and no other television has the capability of producing such natural life like images.
Firstly there are two types of LED televisions, Full LED HDTVs and Edge Lit LED TVs.
Edge Lit LED flat screen televisions have LED lights around the perimeter of the televisions frame whilst Full LED televisions have LED lights behind the TV screen.
Edgelit televisions are the most affordable and the most common from television manufactures. Edge lit LED televisions are great if you are looking for an ultra slim television with a great picture quality, but to achieve an even more superior picture then the full LED televisions are highly recommended.
Style is important when it comes to LED televisions and monolithic design is popular with many LED televisions. A large number of them are designed to be borderless, or with a very thin bezel. The frameless design offers a winder viewing angle which is essential if you want to hook the Tv on the wall.
With Full LED backlighting on LED televisions, the customer can enjoy a superior picture quality and benefit from brighter colours and richer contrast with deeper blacks. There is a difference between the thickness of full LED Tvs and LED edge lit televisions as the edge lit LED TVs tend to be millimetres thinner.
With a full LED backlight LED televisions the contrast between white and black is dramatically improved as localised dimming comes in to play. Localised dimming is when the LED television has the ability to turn off selected clusters of LED lights individually resulting with them producing the darkest black and the brightest whites.
If energy efficiency is important to you then there is another reason why LED televisions would be right for you. Low priced LED televisions could reduce your energy consumption as LED TVs can run at 40 per cent less than standard LCD televisions and plazma TVs. As well as shaving money off your electricity bill, the eco friendly LED TV is kinder to the environment as less energy is used to power it and use a smaller wattage. Unlike the old fashion tube televisions LED TVs reduce the glare on screen allowing to watch the TV in any ambient light conditions.
The new LED televisions have a long list of new features, from integrated Freeview-HD and freesat HD digital tuners, 600 Hertz, Full HD 1080p panels and much more. Many LED televisions have 720p format upscaling delivering a high quality advance picture. Freeview and Freeview-HD is a superb service as these built in tuners give you access to free digital television and radio stations. The Freeview HD tuner is even better as you can enjoy free hi def 1080p resolution programmes from the BBC and ITV without monthly subscription fees, setup costs or charges. The tuners are easy to set up and minimal tuning is required as the TV can do it all automatically and are a great cheap alternative to pay to view services from sky and virgin.
Each manufacturer has their own type of LED television model lineup and series. Panasonic has VIERA LED TVs, Sony has BRAVIA LED TVs, Sharp have Aquos Quattron, Philips has LED Pro and LG has Infinia. LED TVs are the most energy efficient tvs currently on the market until the release of organic led (oled) televisions in the next couple of years. A lot of manufacturers are going for pan European design. This means that tuners are multi standard than ever before. Pal, NTSC and Secam are all catered for.
No television is the same; each model differs in its spec and features it offers, from Freeview-HD, to freesat HD, Full HD 1080p, HD Ready, Picture in Picture (pip), Ambilight technology and networking capabilities. LED televisions are great for offering different refresh rates with 100 Hz, 200 Hz or 400Hz offering faster response times. Standard televisions and some LCD TVs often run at 50Hz. In a nut shell this means that a 50Hz television displays 50 frames of picture per second, which can often lead to ghosting and blurring on fast moving images. LED televisions that run at 100 Hz, 200Hz or 400Hz show that many more pictures per second resulting in ultra smooth blur free motion. With an impressive response rate the new LED TVs have no problems processing fast moving sport or action films.
The high end Philips Televisions all features the patented Ambilight technology. Ambilight offers another dimension to the way we enjoy television at home. The Ambilight on the Philips televisions reflect coloured light on to surrounding wall that compliment the on screen footage. As the color and picture changes so do the light beams and as a result the screen is opened up and viewer is drawn in to the real action. Philips is also the first LED brand in Europe to launch a cinema TV with a 21:9 aspect ratio. This widescreen Full LED TV has a built in user manual for easy use, Ambilight spectra 3, full 3D 1080 panel and the thinnest design. If you have some interest in this cinema LED TV, come to Sound and Vision for a full demo.
One great feature a lot of LED televisions are featuring is 3D. Some LED TVs are 3D ready or full 3D ready. 3D ready means the TVs are set for 3D processing but require an external transmitter that can be bought separately, and full 3D Tvs mean they are ready for 3D straight out of the box. Other features of new LED televisions include Bluetooth, digital tuners, hard drives, eco modes, wifi, skype, bbc iplayer, and stereo sound. When choosing an LED TV make sure it is future proof and that it has a full HD 1080p panel, and if you fancy the idea of 3D then make sure it has that too.
The latest LED televisions and the internet go hand in hand, has demand for networking has become more popular than ever. Networking your television in to your internet system at home is not a new thing as gamers have been playing their friends online for years. These days connecting your Xbox 360, Playstaion, Macbook, ipod or Laptops to your television is no longer enough, we now want to check our friends on Facebook, update our status on Twitter, preview photographs and pictures on flicker, download applications, apps and widget and watch videos on YouTube, all from the comfort of our living rooms though our new LED TV. LED televisions have now become the net work hub for the home, and with technology like DLNA, Wifi and Skype offering wireless connection to others and the internet has never been so simple. Many of the Wifi ready televisions LED Tvs will require a Wi-Fi Dongle to access the online content, and for Bluetooth, adaptors can also be bought separately.
The different flat screen supplier has a different online content interface with IPTV. Each make of television has their own internet browser direct interface and software that gives you access to things like Google TV, YouTube, Flicker, Catch up TV, iPlayer and Facebook. Many television brands have their own network programmes on the new LED televisions for example Panasonic has VIERA Cast VIERA Link and Viera Connect technology, Philips has NetTV, LG have NetCast and Sony has BRAVIA Internet Video. In order to access these functions on your LED TV you will need either a HDMI 1.4 in stead of a 1.3 cable or Ethernet connection and cable. The manufacturers do not supply cables like HDMI, optical, VGA, Ethernet and Scart, so make sure you buy good quality cables from your home theatre and electrical dealers.
Many LED HDTVs have multiple connectors like Scart, Optical, USB, and HDMI, with some connections on the side for easy access. With more than one HDMI input you are able to connect more than one high definition device, including Blu-Ray player, HDD PVR Recorder, DVD disk recorders, HD satellite box, Playstaion, PS3 games console or any other HD games consoles. If you want to connect a home cinema speaker system, soundbar or any other AV gadgets then you should go shopping for an AV amplifier or receiver and connect that to the LED TV. With the AV receiver or amplifier you can adjust the settings of your speakers to match it to your personal requirements. If the LED TV you purchase has a USB port then there is a good chance if will support media files from your PC or Mac. With the USB input you can look at a photo, listen to your favourite jazz song and music as well as enjoy downloaded films.
LED televisions are very versatile and suppliers get very few complaints about them as adjustments can be made to the picture quality to suit your specification. With LED TVs you can adjust the colors and contrast as well as advanced settings to calibrate TV so it performs at its best. Problems and issues with LED televisions are very rear, problems only ever occur after a drop or external damage. If the LED television or monitor is looked after properly
If shoppers are on the hunt for a bargain then they should see if any of the televisions offer extended warrantees. With an extended warranty you can rest assured knowing that in the unlikely event something should go wrong and there is a fault and your TV needs a repair you are covered by the manufacturer. Having an extended warranty, can save you a fortunate, as a standard 5 year warranty can be worth anything up to £800 depending on the type and make of the LED TV you own. Different manufacturers have different standard warranties which are normally between one and two years.
LED HDTVs cover a huge range of sizes and are available to buy, from small and compact LED TVs to large LED TVs. In the home theater stores you can buy monitor size TVs that are 19 inches to 32 inches, to 40inch and 46inch right up to 55 and 65 inches. If you go for a 50 Inch LED television or bigger then a good 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system would compliment it perfectly. The small LED Tvs would be ideal for a kids bedroom or kitchen, and with a suitable wall mount it can be kept hanging on a wall out of the way. The 32 Inch to 46 Inch widescreen televisions are a great size for standard living rooms, you can mount them on the wall with a bracket or use the supplied pedestal stand. 50 inch, 55 inch, 65 Inch and above LED Tvs would be great in a home cinema room instead of a projector. If you decide to buy a wall or ceiling mount for your new LED TV then make sure you know the vesa size of the television and find a matching bracket to fit. LED televisions are also available in different colurs. Panasonic realised and sold an array of coloured TVs including silver LED TVs, purple LED TVs, and white LED television models to compliment their customers living spaces.
LED televisions have fast become one of the most desirable types of television because of the ultra slim aesthetically pleasing design. They look amazing when they are mounted on to wall using a special slim line bracket, or on a pedestal stand. Most LED television sets come with a swivel or pedestal stand, but to benefit from the ultra slim unit a good idea is to mount our new LED television on an inside wall. LED wall mounts are available as an ultra slim wall bracket, which exaggerates the thin design as they are able to fit the screen mm from the walls. Other brackets can be fixed, tilt or full motion, cantilever brackets, pick the right one to suit your needs.
To get a good idea of the buys when it comes to LED TVs ,make sure you look out for commercial advertisements on TV and radio as well as adverts in magazines. These Ads are a great starting point as they highlight the best features and show you what they can do.
If you do not want to hang the LED television on a wall you can now buy some nice television and AV furniture to display your set. There are some great LED wooden cabinets and TV stands around at last, with the best quality floor stands amiable from brands like Alphason Spectral and Peerless.
When it comes to keeping your LED TV clean you need to make sure you use a proper cleaner, following the details on how to use it right. By not using the right cleaning products to clean your tv, you run the risk of an insurance claim because your TV screen will be ruined.

On sale on eBay you will find discounted pricing on LED TVs and computer monitors, but the reliability is questionable, so it is best that buyers purchase a TV from a reputable dealer. The odd LED TV on eBay could be a clearance TV, but good portions are either cheap imports from china, or refurbished sets. Compared to brand new LED TVs the refurbished sets and the cheapest imports can carry all sorts of faults and problems, from picture flickering, audio problems to firmware updates and running speeds. With cheap LED TVs viewers my experience a delay and problems with lip sync. Sound and Vision should be your first place of call when it comes to a new TV we do not sell old faulty models like EBay.
