LED, LCD, plasma, projectors ... the choices are daunting. Our guide compares the options.

In this free guide we compare the various types of television: CRT, LCD, LED, plasma, rear projectors and front projectors. Plus, we explain the mysteries of digital, analogue and HDTV and look at connections and set-adjustment.
