How Do I Choose the Best 3D TV?

Felicia Dye

The quest to find the best 3D TV generally begins by deciding whether to get a plasma screen. Then you will want to consider the TV's resolution and capabilities. Do not forget that the audio quality is an important part of the overall experience. For best results, you should shop for your 3D TV in stores.

Plasma 3D may not be the best choice because 3D glasses make the picture too dark for some people.

When choosing the best 3D TV, one of the first choices that you will need to make is between plasma and liquid crystal digital (LCD). One of the biggest advantages of LCD TVs is that they are brighter, which can make the images look much crisper. Plasma TVs offer a darker image, and the 3D glasses tend to aggravate this. The benefit of plasma is that it eliminates a problem known as crosstalk, which involves an eye seeing parts of an image that are meant to be seen by the opposite eye. This problem, commonly noted with LCD 3D TVs, tends to detract from the effects.

To find the best 3D TV, you must consider the resolution. This will play a major role in the image quality. Resolution refers to the density of the small dots that are put together on the screen to compose an image. It is expressed in a value that looks like a multiplication sentence without the solution. The higher the numbers, the tighter packed the dots on the screen, resulting in a better picture.

Consider each 3D TV's capabilities compared to your needs. These are electronics that are generally loaded with features, and getting the best 3D TV means getting the most for your money. Check out the TV's Internet capabilities and make sure that functions that you will commonly perform are not too complicated. Also make sure the TV has the appropriate types and number of ports that you will need.

One thing that people forget to consider when looking for the best 3D TV is the sound quality. The ultimate goal in purchasing this type of TV versus any other is to have an encompassing viewing experience. It is difficult to achieve that when what you hear is far inferior to what you see. Considering the price of many of these units, you should not have to feel obligated to spend extra for a surround sound system. Instead, test the sound with different types of audio, including conversational speech, special effect sounds, and music.

It is not recommended that you buy a 3D TV online unless you have personal experience with it. This is the type of electronic possession that you really should try out before you make a purchase. If the prices for the best 3D TVs you find are online, go to a store first and make sure that it is what you expect it to be.
