TV Technology at takealot.com
Technological advances have turned our TVs from entertainment systems to information hubs. The majority of flat screen televisions now function as computers and are able to carry out many other functions than just an enjoyable viewing experience. To get the most out of your flat screen TV it’s important to understand what facilities and functionality it provides before you make your purchase.
Takealot stocks an impressive range of LED TVs and a select few LCD televisions with helpful descriptions and specs so that you can make an informed purchasing decision. The most common choice has to be the LED TV which has taken over as the standard due to its clarity and adaptability.

To view all Takealot’s LED TV specials simply go to our TV, Audio & Video department where they’ve been grouped together for your browsing convenience.
Another factor to consider before buying a TV is the screen type, which is important, but it is only as good as the systems that drives it and again there are some variations. The basic flat screen system will allow the connection of a standard aerial plus a DVD/BluRay player and gaming consoles. The connection is via an HDMI or High Definition Media Interface socket that again, has become an industry standard although most systems also include SCART to allow the use of older peripherals. There are other connection methods available such as fibre optic and USB but they serve different purposes.
Also with the advent of micro-control systems came the SMART TV, which acts like a computer. They have the facility for connection to a variety of peripherals and many have internet access via WiFi and LAN. With SMART systems, you can take advantage of services such as YouTube, Facebook and internet TV subscription sites via your flat screen television making them the primary home entertainment system. You can even view your home movies via USB. Their lightweight design also allows the use of a TV bracket, making it possible to mount them to a wall.
Prices and sizes for TV's vary, depending on your budget and what you want from them, so it is great to know that takealot.com offers something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for an LED TV on special or are willing to shell out top dollar, you’ll find something that suits your needs at Takealot.
