We can help you make an educated choice when it comes to purchasing and installing your new high-definition TV (HDTV) / digital TV equipment. Buying a new HDTV can be nearly overwhelming, given all the choices, configurations, interfaces, and options that exist. Some common decisions you will need to make involve answering questions that include:

  • Which HDTV option is best: Plasma, LED, OLED or LCD?
  • Would a HD 3DHome Cinema Projector or other Projection solution fit me needs?
  • LED looks great, should I go for edge-lit, full-array backlighting, etc?
  • Is 3D-TV HDTV for me? Do I need to wear special glasses to see 3D?
  • How big should the HDTV be (diagonal size)?
  • What different resolutions do I need (e.g., 4KTV, 1080i, 1080p, 720p, 480i, 480p)?
  • What is the optimal screen refresh rate (e.g., 120Hz, 240Hz, 480Hz)?
  • Can I use my computer, multimedia server, antenna, cable, BluRay, and DVD player with my choice of HDTVs?
  • What interfaces do I need? HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI, VGA/PC, Component, etc?
  • Next, what version/revision of those interfaces do I need? e.g., HDMI 1.3, HDMI 1.4, etc.?
  • Will I require a Digital Cable service to use my high-definition TV or will satellite be best for me?
  • Can someone help me setup my system to receive free HDTV (over-the-air broadcasts) in the Cleveland area?
  • What brand of HDTV equipment is the best? What is the best price-performance option? There are so many brands to choose from: Sony, Samsung, Panasonic, Sharp, Toshiba, Philips, Mitsubishi, Pioneer, Vizio... which is right for me?
  • Who can install all my HDTV equipment and accessories, including running wires and mounting TVs and speakers?

Plasma vs. LED / LCD HDTV for your Home Theater

LED/LCD and Plasma HDTVs dominate the TV market — most recently LED TVs have risen to the top thanks to high-quality LED-backlit HDTV products now on the market. Modern HDTVs have dramatically improved pictures, higher contrast ratios, larger screen sizes, and take up much less space. There are many models, and countless features, to choose from.

The line between Plasma and LCD / LED is less clear as of recent, with LCD making substantial market-share gains and technology improvements, especially as LED TV options have greatly expanded and brought higher contrast ratios, power savings, and incredible colors — but now you also have to consider things like edge-lit LED vs. full-array LED back-lighting and more.. But, in general, here are some of the conventional thoughts when it comes to comparing these two different digital television options.

Key LCD / LED benefits over Plasma now include:
  • More energy efficient — less power consumption; especially with the newest LED-based technology
  • No image "burn-in" issues to worry about generally
  • Available in a much wider range of sizes than plasma
  • Generally less expensive for same-sized HDTVs

Plasma benefits over LCD traditionally included:
  • Richer colors, deeper contrast, and perfectly black "blacks"
  • Wider viewing angle
  • Smoother images especially during fast action scenes, sports, and video games
  • but,... modern LCD/LED options have really closed these gaps.

Some HDTV Installation Considerations

Purchasing an new HDTV is the easy part... now you may want some additional help installing it, getting everything connected and working just the way you want, and so forth. Keep these types of things in mind, which we can help with.

  • Video cables to connect yourDVD player, game system, and other video inputs to your HDTV (whether HDMI cables, Component Video, etc.)
  • Wall mount installation: if you prefer to mount your TV on the wall — a benefit of these new, thin, and lighter TVs
  • Household wiring and related HDTV install assistance to upgrade your TV inputs (cable or antenna), speaker cables, power lines (and power conditioners), etc
