- Light weight – Even large LCD TVs weigh less than 40 pounds so you can easily move them anywhere in your home. And LCD TVs are thin so you can place them almost anywhere, even mount them on a wall.
- Long life – LCD TVs have an average screen life of 60,000 hours, almost twice that of some plasma TVs, and they aren’t prone to screen “burn in” as are tube and plasma TVs, so they’re better for playing video games.
- Cheap to operate – LCD TVs use much less electricity than either tube TVs or plasma TVs.
