LED TV: Making the Switch from a Traditional TV

by Team Wiscon 14 Mar 2023

Television technology has come a long way since the days of bulky cathode ray tube (CRT) sets that required a lot of space and energy to operate. Today, we have sleek, slim, energy-efficient LED TVs that deliver stunning visuals and sound quality. If you are still using a traditional TV, you might be missing out on the benefits of LED technology. In this blog, we will explore the advantages of LED TVs and 6 things to keep in mind when making the switch from traditional TV.

What is an LED TV?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. An LED TV is a type of flat-panel display that uses LED backlighting to illuminate the screen. LED backlighting offers many advantages over traditional CCFLs, including better energy efficiency, thinner profile, and improved contrast ratios.

Advantages of LED TVs

Energy Efficiency

LED TVs consume less energy than traditional CRT and LCD displays. They are up to 50% more energy-efficient than a typical CRT TV and use 30% less power than an LCD TV. This means you can save money on your electricity bill and reduce your carbon footprint.

Picture Quality

LED TVs offer better picture quality than traditional CRT and LCD displays. They have a higher contrast ratio, which means the difference between the brightest and darkest colours on the screen is greater. This results in deeper blacks, brighter whites, and more vivid colours.

Slim Profile

LED TVs are much thinner than traditional CRT and LCD displays. They have a slim profile that makes them easy to mount on a wall or place on a stand. This saves space in your living room and creates a sleek, modern look.


LED TVs are more durable than traditional CRT and LCD displays. They are less prone to screen burn-in, which occurs when a static image is displayed on the screen for a long time, causing permanent damage. LED TVs also have a longer lifespan, which means you can enjoy your favourite shows and movies for many years to come.

Wide Viewing Angles

LED TVs have wider viewing angles than traditional CRT and LCD displays. This means you can enjoy the same picture quality from any angle in the room. This is especially important if you have a large family or enjoy watching TV with friends. Wiscon LED TVs give you a viewing angle of 178 degrees!

Making the Switch from Traditional TV

If you are still using a traditional TV, it's time to make the switch to LED technology. Here are 6 tips to help you get started:

Make Sure to Research

Before you buy an LED TV, do your research. Read reviews, compare prices, and check the specifications to find the best TV for your needs and budget. Look for a TV with a high contrast ratio, wide viewing angles, and energy-efficient backlighting. You can also check out our blog where we have posted about these topics.

Size Matters

Choose the right size TV for your room. A TV that is too small or too large can impact your viewing experience. The ideal size depends on the distance between the TV and the seating area. A general rule of thumb is to choose a TV that is one-third the distance of the viewing area. For example, if your couch is eight feet from the TV, a 32-inch TV would be ideal.

Placing the LED TV

Decide where you want to place your TV. Consider mounting it on the wall or placing it on a stand. If you choose to mount it, make sure you have the right bracket and hardware. If you choose to place it on a stand, make sure it is sturdy and can support the weight of the TV.


Check the connectivity options on your TV. Make sure it has HDMI ports, USB ports, and Wi-Fi connectivity. This will allow you to connect your TV to other devices, such as gaming consoles, Blu-ray players, and streaming devices.

Wiscon LED TVs come with 2 HDMI Ports, 2 USB Ports, Bluetooth Connectivity, AV Input/Output, a headphone jack, and also an Ethernet port!

Dispose of Your Old TV Responsibly

If you are replacing an old TV, make sure to dispose of it responsibly. Many electronic retailers offer recycling programs for old TVs. Alternatively, you can donate your old TV to a local charity or sell it online.


LED TVs offer many advantages over traditional CRT and LCD displays.  If you are still using a traditional TV, it's time to make the switch to LED technology. With the right research, size, placement, connectivity, and set up, you can enjoy all the benefits of LED TVs and enhance your viewing experience.
