It seems like a must-see movie is released on a weekly basis, but between the costs of tickets, gas, and concessions, it can be too expensive to head out to the cinema every week.
To save, I choose the movies I only go to the cinema to see movies that will be enhanced by the mammoth screen and impeccable sound system. These are mostly action movies or movies that have a profusion of special effects. For the other movies, I wait until they are released and available on DVD.
I recently invested in a home theater system, so now I can almost replicate the cinema experience in my own home. An entire room is no dedicated to an enormous projector screen and some state-of-the-art A/V equipment.
To complete my home movie experience, I also got myself a few luxury recliners, similar to the seats you’ll find in upscale theaters. With dimmed lights and some popcorn, it feels like being in the movie theater already.
Purchasing the Best LCD TV
When it comes to newer technology like LCD televisions, it’s important to recognize the manufacturers who produce the best products. In general, you will find that the Sony Brava and Samsung LCD TVs are the highest in quality. While there are numerous other companies that manufacture LCD televisions, these three tend to stand out above the rest.
When purchasing an LCD television, you want to ensure that you get the right size for the right price. For example, if you’re looking to place the television on a wall in your living room, you probably want something a little larger. 46 inches is the standard size for family televisions. If you’re looking more for a personal television, something 16-20 inches might be more your style.
Where you purchase is also important, as this can save you a lot of money. Avoid the retail stores unless you see a huge bargain on a sale, and shop online where there are more competition and thus better prices.
Display Smart Shopping Habits
Liquid crystal display, or LCD, technology is nothing new. It’s been utilized in personal calculators for years, and a few of your friends probably purchased LCD televisions when they became popular. LCD screens typically feature a thin panel containing multicolored crystals. A backlight shines through the crystals, providing images we recognize.
When shopping for a new television, try not to be taken in by tricky sales techniques. LCD screens offer a peerless viewing experience, but the technology is no longer innovative.
As a result, shops aren’t justified in charging astronomical prices for what should be affordable 52 to 32 LCD TV models. Personal computers were once considered luxury items that only the elite could afford, but prices dropped as the technology became more familiar.
