When buying a new HD TV, there are only three things that really matter: price, picture quality and features.

When buying a HD TV, sticking with the basics will help simplify the job of selecting the right television for you. That said, only three things matter: Price, picture quality and features. Just ignore the manufacturer’s name and skip the long list of specs that will just make you confused.

For most buyers, price is the first factor to consider when purchasing a HD TV. Generally, the bigger the television, the more features it has and the better the picture quality, the more expensive it is. So depending on your priorities, you may either get a small HD TV with better quality, or a big one that doesn’t have the same features.

With the competition for 3D TV technology getting tougher, Philips made their first step in the arena with their Cinematic 21:9 PFL7956 and Widescreen PFL7606.

With LG’s latest 3D revolution, Philips released two new 3D TV series that features passive technology: Cinematic 21:9 aspect PFL7956 and Widescreen PFL7606. Powered by Philips’ “Easy 3D”, the passive 3D TVs will use polarized glasses instead of active ones. Generally, polarized eye wears are lighter, cheaper and more comfortable to use. However, they are more expensive than their active-shutter counterparts.

The Cinematic 21:9 is capable of 2D-3D conversion, and can be used for two-player, full screen gaming. On the other hand, the Widescreen PFL7606 will come in various sizes, from 32 – 55 inches. Both Philips’ 3D TV are LED edge-lit. However, there are no concrete release date for these 3D TVs.

Panasonic Confirmed: 3D TV Sales Surpassed HD TV

The sales on 3D TV surpassed the HD TV market adoption? How true could that be?

In an attempt to recover the big investments made in 3D technology, the industry has been in survival mode for quite a while. But this time, Panasonic CTO, Eisuke Tsuyuzaki, claims that the masses have finally warmed to the 3D TV platform. According to the CTO, “Within North America, the industry shipped some 2 million Full HD 3D enabled televisions after just nine months on the market.”

While people can say that Eisuke Tsuyuzaki has a point regarding the market’s quick adoption of 3D TVs, the statement needs to contextualize. Panasonic and its competitors committed just a part of the budget to get HD TV in the market compared to 3D. In addition to this, the 3D TV platform also had a showcase film – the Avatar – to reveal what it’s really capable of, but the sales were still slow out of the gate.

Maybe 3D TV viewing can become a big business. But suggesting that the industry is where they hoped it would be is a lie.

While advancements in television technology is flying high, the market is not. The reason: Advance TVs in the market today are not really what consumers are looking for.

If you do not have any idea what’s trending in gadgets and technology today, you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking that old TVs are still in the business — both in terms of consumer demand and technological advancements. Though technological advancements are inevitable, TV manufacturers are still missing some point. So how can they better serve you, the people who actually buy TVs? There are two ways: Cheaper TVs and televisions that can play nicely with other gadgets.

For TV manufacturers, falling prices on panels and making of HD TVs can be a dilemma. TV makers have been aggressive in their pricing, forcing some competitors to follow. This meant thin market, making the companies’ TV businesses unviable. And their plan to combat this setback is to manufacture more advance TVs that they charge a premium for. However, consumers aren’t in the mood to roll in the dough now. In fact, they are demanding for cheaper television sets.

Sony Supports 3D and Google TV Continuously

The 3D TV is not completely dead in the water. As long as there are Sony, Google TV and the 3D TV technology, the 3D will have its own market share. The only question is: How hefty will it be?

Considering how well-recognized Sony Bravia is, it is hard to believe that the company’s television division lost for six years in a row. However, they are still hoping that Sony 3D TV and Google TV will soon make the company’s television division profitable. This year, Sony planned to sell 25 million TV sets. However, they fell short of that goal. Still, they are eying the Google TV platform as a potential big seller in the future.

As for its Sony 3D TV, the company crosses their fingers that they can sell at least one 3D TV in every ten units. Unfortunately, most people know that 3D TV as a platform hasn’t hit the glasses yet due to lack of content and hefty price tag. If that will be the case, Sony’s television division must get its act together if they want to catch the leaders in market share.
