LED TVs are a newer technology that is becoming increasingly popular. There are several new and advanced concepts associated with this television. Although still a little cost prohibitive, as time marches on the cost is sure to become more affordable. More and more manufacturers of televisions are starting to make LED televisions; competition is sure to help drive down the price.

Instead of using the older technology, cold cathode, to backlight the television, this new LED TV uses small LED lights. There is a greater color difference between individual images on the screen with the new LEDs. Although many people enjoy the new and more color television display, a number of people have reported migraines while watching this television.

There are three main types of LED lights that may be used. Edge LED lights are often white and are used mostly along the edge of the screen. RGB dynamic LED lights show the greater contrast of white, black and colors. Unfortunately, with this type of LED, some small objects are shown in less detail than what is intended. Full array LEDs make up the last type of bulb used in this TV. This gives the television and overall greater color contrast as well as lets the scenes or picture change more rapidly.

There are many benefits to LED televisions. To many, one of the biggest benefits lies in the fact that it consumes only a fraction of the energy that a traditional TV takes. This preserves the Earth as well as lowers the monthly energy bill. Many people also like the thinner panel the LED TV offers. Heat dissipation is much better on this TV; it evenly distributes the heat generated.

LED televisions have been welcomed with open arms. Although each new item is sure to have little problems here and there, the television’s problems have been minimal. Most of consumer’s reviews found online are spread from four to five stars. With such high reviews, it is no wonder that LED television sales are projected to rise sharply in the coming years.

A new LED TV will set a consumer back anywhere from several hundred dollars to a couple thousand dollars. Used televisions are available from some retailers helping to make this luxury available to more people. The brand of the television, the size and what the television is capable of in terms of features are all things that cause different televisions to vary so much in price. The LED TV is still unaffordable to most consumers today.

The first LED type television was manufactured in 2004; the LED television as we know it today was not produced until 2008. In the beginning of these manufactured LED Televisions, companies were not marking clearly if it was truly an LED TV or an LED backlight LCD display. Some agencies, such as the Advertising Standards Authority located in the United Kingdom, have stepped up and put a stop to this practice. It is now demanded that manufacturer’s accurately and honestly mark which type of LED that particular television is.

With gushing customer reviews, a great picture quality, and other great features, it is no wonder that the LED televisions are so popular. That popularity is set to rise in the next few years. This new technology, while expensive now, should be less expensive a couple years down the road.
