With technology changing and advancing at a rapid pace, it's easy it lose track of new or improved electronics. Television is a great example of this -- in the past five years, liquid crystal display (LCD) televisions have overtaken a market that was dominated by cathode ray tube (CRT) televisions for nearly a century. Though LCD TVs are the best-selling in the world, light emitting diode (LED) TVs are quickly rising in popularity. While the two types of televisions might seem similar, there are many things that set them apart. In this webcast, learn about the differences between LCD and LED TVs, and which one might be right for your next television purchase.
