What To Look For When Buying An HDTV

When you’re browsing online for the right HDTV, it can sometimes be hard to know exactly what you’re getting into. Unlike shopping through regular ‘bricks and mortar’ stores such as Best Buy or Target, shopping online requires a deep understanding of the specs since you cannot see the picture quality directly on the site, although you may be able to YouTube a review.

When you’re browsing through TVs, try to get one that has a 120Hz refresh rate, as these offer much better picture than 60Hz, and is often work the extra dollar spent. 240Hz screens are usually used for 3D picture, and split the 240Hz into two 120Hz (one for each eye). Unless you plan on doing some 3D watching, I suggest sticking with the 120Hz screens.

OLED Displays Are Now 2x More Efficient

Researchers from the University of Toronto have developed a special technique that produces OLED devices that will encourage consumers to adopt OLED technology embedded within flat-panel displays and through various lighting technologies.

The process requires the production of a one-atom thick sheet of chlorine onto the surface of indium tin oxide material. The layer of chlorine is applied to the surface with an ultra violet assisted process that negates the need for chlorine gas. The indium tin oxide is used as the electrode material that is currently found in flat panel displays. The outcome of this engineering process would be a more efficient and less costly OLED device.
