LCD screens are made of several polarized glass panels, between which are liquid crystal molecules. An electric current is run throughrepparttar crystal molecules, changing their position in respect torepparttar 135697 glass. As light passes throughrepparttar 135698 molecules, these changes in angle result in different lightness/ darkness patterns that produce images onrepparttar 135699 screen. There are usually three polarized glass panels, one with red pixels, blue, and green. This system also produced very accurate, vivid images, but angle is important.

Is DLP, LCD TV Screens better thanrepparttar 135701 other?

Simply put, that is a difficult question to answer. Unlike Plasma TV screens DLP and LCD last much are longer, and are considered to both have superior image quality. LCD screens tend to have slightly better contrast, with a larger range of black and white color shades. DLP, however, still has faster refresh rates than LCD (although LCD has been vastly improved in this area overrepparttar 135702 last two years). This can have implications if you are really into high-action motion (sports, action movies), because movement may seem a little blurred with LCD at times. Also, you'll want to remember that in order for you to getrepparttar 135703 best color out of your LCD, you have to sit right in front of it. LCD TVs also have a slightly shorter lifespan than DLPs, with only 45,000 to 60,000 hours compared to 75,000 hours or more. As far as price goes, LCD and DLP are still more expensive than Plasma, but like all things in time, their price has been coming down. And right now, DLP is slightly more expensive than LCD, but not by much. DLP, in our eyes, isrepparttar 135704 best investment, at least forrepparttar 135705 next few years.
