Sometimes where high tech meets the average consumer communicating is often like speaking two separate languages. You might a 46 inch LCD HDTV 720p flat screen you absolutely love but have no idea why it's 0 dollars cheaper than the same brand 46 inch LCD HDTV 1080p right next to it. To you the TV's are the same size but if you checked the picture out you would see the difference. So lets give a brief synopsis on the key terms when you shop for your next flat screen.
LCD - Liquid Crystal Display: A display method created back in the 1960s where the orientation of rod shaped molecules (like a liquid) bend light like a crystal would. So if you vary the orientation of these filters it will determine how the light you ultimately see passes through the crystals. LCD are not new but the technology is still out there and in use today. You can also find LCD screens used for computers monitors. They provide a very clean image and is what most flat screen TVs are made with today.
HDTV - High Definition Television: The highest form of digital TV you can receive. You can think of it as if you were watching a movie at the movie theater with its 16:9 aspect ratio. Also along with HDTV is the resolution you can have, 720p, 1080i and 1080p. To give you a starting reference, traditional TV sets had a 480 lines. The lines determine how good of a resolution you are going to have. We also have the "i" and "p" which follow the number of lines used to create an image. These stand for "interlaced" and "progressive". Just remember that the progressive scan is the more desirable as it processes the image twice as fast as the interlaced scan. What this will do for you is create a better clarity and and color on your final picture. Also keep in mind that these scans are considered more important on flat screens larger than 32 inches. So when you purchase a 46 inch LCD HDTV 1080p you want to keep this in mind.

Sharp's 120Hz Fine Motion Enhanced motion processing virtually eliminates blur and motion artifacts in fast-moving video. The LC-46LE830U also boasts connected TV services, including Vudu apps, Netflix streaming video, CinemaNow, Blockbuster On Demand, Alphaline Entertainment, and Napster.

Quattron Quad Pixel Technology
Quattron LED LCD TVs feature advanced technologies enabling picture quality that has been difficult or impossible to reproduce using conventional LCD displays. When combined with Sharp's 1080p X-Gen LCD panel, the displays offer dramatic reduction in energy consumption compared with conventional CCFL LCD TVs. These technologies work in tandem to optimize picture quality and contrast ratios while reducing energy use.
Quattron LED LCD TVs employ a four-color filter, adding the color Y (yellow) to the three colors of R (red), G (green) and B (blue). Quad Pixel technology produces this groundbreaking combination expanding the color gamut and faithfully rendering nearly all colors that can be discerned while introducing never-before-seen colors to LCD TVs, like sparkling golds, Caribbean blues and sunflower yellows.
Sharp's X-Gen panel provides a wider aperture, allowing more light to pass through, which requires fewer backlighting elements to create an extremely bright image. Also, because the redesigned LCD panel has fewer ribs than traditional panels, the pixels seal more completely, enabling nearly all light to be blocked and resulting in deeper blacks.
120Hz Fine Motion Enhanced
Sharp uses a unique algorithm to create images that help smooth sharp edges on moving objects, like a running play in football, a player swinging a bat, or a car chase. By creating new images and filling in the gaps, motion appears smoother and less jumpy. The result is a smoother picture with more detail.
Sharp's X-Gen panel provides a wider aperture allowing more light to pass through, which requires fewer backlighting elements to create an extremely bright image. Also, because the re-designed LCD panel has less ribs than traditional panels, the pixels are better sealed which enables nearly all light to be blocked resulting in darker images.
With a full LED backlight, luminance can be controlled with greater precision than with a CCFL backlight because of the differences in intensity control properties. Compared with the modulation rate of a typical CCFL backlight, the ultra-bright LED backlight is capable of modulating down to an incredible rate. Through the combined operation of Sharp's X-Gen panel, which has a high contrast ratio and Sharp's ultra-brilliant LED backlight system, AQUOS LE830 Series LCD TVs achieve an ultra-high contrast ratio that delivers unprecedented degrees of black and images that project incredible depth.
VyperDrive game mode helps to eliminate the lag time between the game console and TV. When Game Mode is activated, the signal is streamlined, resulting in transmission that is five times faster than normal mode. The result is a game experience you'll never forget.
