If you are shopping for a 20 inch LCD TV, there are several factors to consider before purchasing one. LCD televisions are not like traditional cathode ray tube (CRT) television sets, so there are several new terms and concepts that might be worth learning about before you take the plunge to buy one. If you know what you are looking for, you can make the wisest purchase and get a television set that specifically suits your needs.

Figuring out the Viewing Angle with an LCD TV

A 20 inch LCD TV has considerable advantages when compared with its 20 inch CRT counterpart. More often than not, the LCD TV will be considerably slimmer. You will more than likely be amazed at the small amount of space that an LCD television set takes up. It can easily add as much as an extra foot of space into a room.

Unlike traditional CRT televisions, though, the screen on a 20 inch LCD TV often provides limited viewing angles. When watching a CRT television, you can theoretically watch the screen from any part of the room, and the image will look virtually the same. LCD screens, on the other hand, sometimes lose their focus if you move to a steep angle away from the front of the set.

Imagine you're staring at your screen head-on and start to walk in a semicircle around the side of the television. With some LCD screens, the further away you get from the front of the screen, the blurrier the image will become. Many manufacturers have accounted for this phenomenon in recent sets. If you plan to watch your LCD screen from a variety of angles, you may want to consider purchasing one of these more recent sets.
