Older televisions have a curved screen. One of the reasons a flat screen TV is preferable is that they offer less of a surface on which light in the room can reflect. As a result, even when rooms are brightly lit, there is minimal glare off of flat screen TVs. While there are many television technologies available, cheap flat screens are becoming available with significant savings, great technology and superior video quality.
The most affordable flat screen TVs are traditional Cathode Ray Tube televisions or tube televisions. These use the same technology that’s been around for decades, but these cheap tvs have a flat glass surface instead of a curved one. There is a limit to the size of screen available if your cheap flat screen tv has Cathode Ray Tube technology.
For large flat screen TVs, you might want to consider rear projection televisions. These televisions were formerly housed in bulky cabinets and took up a considerable amount of room in your home. New technologies like DLP, LCD, and LCoS–collectively referred to as microdisplays–have allowed manufacturers to shrink the cabinets, making these televisions often no thicker than a Cathode Ray Tube television.
If you’re looking to get a sleek design and the thinnest possible television – you’ll probably be inclined toward flat panel displays. LCD and plasma televisions are light enough to be hung on walls and as a result, take up no floor space. As all of these technologies continue to improve, the prices associated with flat screen TVs will continue to drop, making it possible to purchase large televisions at a fraction of the price charged just a few years ago.
While most of the cheap flat screens sold here are new from the factory and they are reasonably priced due to the advances made in technology, another way to find cheap tvs or a cheap flat screen tv is to search for our “refurbished” tv sets that are remanufactured at the factory and which come available with their own full factory warranty! You can find savings and protection in one package that way!
