What type of TV do you own?

Do you own a CRT TV or a Plasma TV or an LED TV or an OLED TV?

Does anyone know what type of TV most people own? I've been looking for sales statistics or surveys, but I can't find anything.

Re: What type of TV do you own?

I own a 32" Hisense H3 LED HDTV. I love it. I love it so much.
By now, most people probably own LCD or LED TVs. I know that Samsung is one of the highest selling HDTV brands.

Re: What type of TV do you own?

I have a 42 inch plasma TV. I can't do the LCD TVs as they give me headaches (not sure about LEDs). I brought that up once here a few years ago and was ridiculed for it, but I have sensory sensitivity, especially when it comes to light, so it makes sense to me. Plasma TVs are much better, though even then I have to turn the brightness level all the way down.

I still have a CRT in my bedroom.

Re: What type of TV do you own?

58" LED LCD Philips Cinema 21:9.

Somewhat old top model from the company, but it has that perfect aspect ratio for watching films AND it comes with the most fantastic extra ever to be put into a tv-set: AmbiLight!!!

Bummer and sorry to hear! I know that can be a painful and uncomfortable thing. No lense flares for you!

I own a Samsung 50' HD LCD.

Samsung UE46EH5450 46'' (117 cm) LED-Backlight 1080p Full-HD, 100Hz CMR, DVB-T/C, Smart TV

2012 model, chosen specifically because it rated favorably in the input lag department (Gaming Mode disables a lot of the post-processing tech to improve responsiveness).
