Which to choose - LCD, LED, Plasma or Projector?

Gone are the days when all you had to do was choose your size and brand, now you've got a choice of different technologies too.

  • LCD Televisions
    Ideal for a variety of functions including DVD playback and gaming, they are the most readily available, and best value.
  • Plasma Televisions
    A great choice if you want the ultimate in clarity and colour depth. They come in larger sizes from 37" upwards and are ideally suited to movies and television. Whilst fantastic in HD they are also well suited to less high quality sources such as standard definition Freeview and Sky where they cover up some of the imperfections in the signal.
  • LED Televisions
    Using a similar technology to LCD, they are a little more expensive, but much thinner and offer slightly better colour definition and improved viewing angles through LED backlighting technology

Not only does the sheer size and filmic look make every movie a real experience, but they also provide the latest HD quality and clarity at a surprising value for money price.
