Cheap LCD TVs Features Comparison
So how big should your LCD TV be? That depends on how large the room is that you're putting it in. For a living room LCD TV in the budget range, 42 inches is a good start; a large living room or den probably calls for a display as large as 55 to 60 inches and certainly carries a higher price tag. Smaller budget LCD TVs are ideal for bedrooms, dorm rooms, and other confined spaces. A TV with resolution of 1080p will give you the sharpest picture possible, although a 720p TV still provides very good picture quality. A refresh rate of at least 60Hz should reduce motion blur when playing video games or watching fast-paced action, and many budget LCD TVs are starting to step up to 120Hz refresh rates. More and more entry-level models also incorporate LED backlighting, which is a boon to picture quality. Last but certainly not least, make sure the LCD TV you buy has enough inputs for all your current electronics gear, plus a couple extra in case you acquire new home theater electronics.
