what are the advantages and disadvantages of plasm and lcd high defintion tvs?
i am shopping for a tv that can be use for both tv and as a computer monitor. It needs to be high def and I am not sure the advantages and disadvantages of plasma vs lcd
Plasma sets still has a burn in concern( not as much as 4yrs ago but still can be a problem) & as far as both in terms of computer use lcd would be the way to go there’s no burn in problems , but they both can double as a computer display but with plasma issues it’s not recommened & as far as advantages & dis well in picture quality they both are close plasma may edge out lcd in one area only & that’s black level they have owned that over lcd since the start & even that is very close now & lcd has a resolution advantage they can do 720p,1080i & 1080p in smaller sizes than plasma 37ins. & up so if you use one of these sets as a computer screen then lcd would be a better choice, that way you don’t have to think about burn in issues.
Will 720p look better on a 720p monitor than a 1080p?
Here’s the situation: I am looking at purchasing a new LCD tv in the 42″ range and up. I do NOT have HD-DVD or BluRay, nor to I intend to in the near future. I primarily intend to watch broadcast signal, which I understand is largely solely broadcast in 720p in my area.
Here is what I wonder: Would a 720p signal look better on a tv that natively displays at 720p versus 1080p? It would seem to me that in order for a 720p signal to be displayed on a 1080p tv, it would have to be upconverted because 720 into 1080 doesn’t divide evenly, so somewhere there is potential for degraded image.
Untimately, I want the best for my money, but if 1080p isn’t going to benefit me now or the near future, I would just stick with 720p.
All input is greatly welcomed and appreciated!
You are correct, when 720p is upgraded in to 1080 there will be some signal degradation and the picture will not be as clear, There are some 1080p TVs that will down-covert their picture (like black boxes around the edges) to format for the broadcast 720p, check for that first.
How do you clean a Wii game?
I try to clean the stain off but it won’t come off!!! I used dish detergent already and nothing works!
Sounds like a disc problem.
Here’s something that’ll surprise you: One of the most effective ways to clean a dvd is by using Toothpaste! More info below:
Here’s some quick tips on cleaning DVDs:
– Microfiber cloths are a quick way to clean a DVD. These are the same kind of cloths people use to clean eyeglasses, monitors, and laptop or LCD monitors. Because of microfiber’s very tight weave and the synthetic materials used to make microfiber, dust and particles of dirt are attracted and lifted up into the microfiber, which prevents you from simply spreading the dust around and scratching the DVD further. Every serious DVD collector should have one of these and wash it regularly.
– Rubbing Alcohol is used to clean DVDs and just about every sensitive piece of technology out there because it doesn’t act like strong solvents do, and it evaporates quickly without leaving a residue. Usually a 1:1 mixture of 90%+ Isopropyl alcohol and water will do the trick. Simply dab a small, clean cotton cloth into the mixture and wipe in straight lines from the center of the DVD to the outside edge. To dry the DVD, just let it sit for a moment or two in a vertical position.
And my personal favorite:
– If you have minor scratches that are interfering with your movie watching, you can always use toothpaste to polish them out. Toothpaste is a natural abrasive; that’s how it cleans your teeth, and it will do the same for a DVD. Avoid extra-whitening formulas. Just dab a little bit of Crest or Colgate on that DVD, mix it with a little water and with either your finger or a small piece of cloth, buff those scratches away. But be careful not to over to it. DVDs aren’t as resilient as your teeth.
Glad to help! Good Luck!
Did I hit the limitations on computing power on this video game?
I recently purchased an HP Envy h8-1414
It has 10 GB of RAM, 3.5 GHz 6-core processor, and Radeon HD 7450 (1 GB).
I think it may be the graphics card but when playing Mirror’s Edge, I run into issues. Would it depend at all on the monitor? The monitor is an old LCD that runs 1280×1024 (almost 1080, really upset about that).
I think it’s on the monitor. It can’t support a higher GPU/graphics card, so that’s why you get these issues you’re saying. You could match the graphic settings of the game to the maximum capacity of the monitor, or just buy another monitor for full enjoyment.
What is the best way to clean my lcd screen?
I use a little bit of alcohol-cleaner sprayed onto a lint-free cloth (normal dusters tend to leave fluff stuck to the screen, but if you use a little more alcohol it should work fine) and gently clean the whole screen area (including the edges) with the damp patch of alcohol (it dries off the screen instantly). Doesn’t damage the monitor at all and leaves it finger-print free!
