It’s the Holiday Season. You know that means stores start advertising their new Holiday electronic merchandise. Nick’s TVs of Tucson is here to provide a value alternative to those big-box high priced televisions. We have a great selection of refurbished Plasma, HDTV, and LCD televisions in our store ready for you to take home and enjoy.
Choosing to purchase refurbished rather than new is a difficult decision. You have to trust that you are buying from a reliable source. A refurbished TV is only a value purchase when you receive a quality product that works reliably.
Understanding your choices with TVs
LCD and LED TVs are essentially exactly the same. Both use the same type of technology, with almost no difference except LCD uses CFL lights, and LED uses LED lights. This makes the LED TV more energy-efficient and the screen can be a bit brighter.
Plasma TVs do not have backlight as every pixel lights up individually which allows the plasma TV to be superior in contrast ratio. Plasma TVs are superior in quality than LCD and LED due to this much higher contrast ratio and color pallet.
New TV's are now mostly LED and LCD TVs. They are being sold at ridiculously low prices right now. Consumers need to understand that you really get what you pay for. Those sets while being really low-cost initially are C grade TVs and will only last a limited amount of time before failing. Most of the LED TVs that are being sold today have a contrast ratio of around 4,000 and a dynamic ratio of 10,000 and about 16.7 million colors in their pallet. However they are marketed as HD since they have a high pixel count. What most people don't understand is that a high contrast ratio is more important than high pixel count, however more expensive to produce. This is why high pixel count is usually advertised on the box.
Most of the refurbished sets that we sell at Nicks TVs are actually plasma TVs which achieve a 40,000 contrast ratio, and 2,000,000 dynamic contrast ratio and usually above 1 billion colors in their pallets. This contrast ratio allows for colors to flow smoothly throughout the entire screen and thus achieve better overall picture quality.
LCD and LED TVs sold on today's market can be really great quality and can compete with plasma TVs but those are going to be the high end models from the more well known brands such as Panasonic, Samsung, and Sony. So, a new TV for $329 doesn't necessarily mean a better deal than a refurbished 3 year old TV for $375.
