Are unbranded cheap televisions are a false economy?
Before you buy a TV or other consumer electronics item you should bear in mind not only the purchase price of the product but in addition the probability of it going faulty, the life expectancy of the product, and the features and the performance.
Unbranded cheap Plasma televisions and unbranded Cheap LCD TVs retail for less than the similar specification, identical size TVs from well known manufacturers like Hitachi, Pioneer, Panasonic, LG, Philips, Toshiba, Samsung, Sony, JVC and Sharp. The secondary brand cheap TVs may well seem to be good value for money even though they are produced by unknown manufacturers. On first examination the features offered can appear to be comparable to those of the known brands. Some cheap brand televisions are also sometimes aesthetically well styled.
Why are the known brands of televisions more expensive?
It is easy to think that you are paying a premium for the badge on the branded models of televisions, whilst this is to some extent true there are other differences that justify the extra cost of the branded televisions.
Another explanation for cheap unbranded Television brands being cheaper is that they dont operate from high-priced offices in the UK backed up with warehouses, and staff. They often transport the products straight from the factory in Eastern Europe, China, etc to the retailers warehouse with no or scarcely any personnel and premises in the UK. This may appear to be good thing and would help explain the price differential.
The manufacturers of unbranded cheap TVs dont have the same incentive to protect their televisions from being unreliable or poor quality. It isnt important to them if the televisions are unreliable or if they last for 4 years or 7years. Ultimately you wont know which factory manufactured the television, so you wont be able to avoid it in the future if you purchase an unreliable Television.
The likelihood of cheap televisions from unfamiliar manufacturers going faulty are greater because they dont operate the same stringent levels of quality control that the top brands do. So the probability that the unbranded cheap TV will go faulty from new, either straight out of the box, or once, or even more than once in the first year is far greater than for the quality known brands of TVs.
The circuit design and internal components on unknown cheap TV brands are not of the same quality as the main brands of televisions, yet again increasing the likelihood of the TV going faulty. Reliability surveys carried out by the consumer magazine Which have repeatedly found that TV brands such as Panasonic and Sony consistently out perform the cheaper unknown cheap TV brands.
It is more difficult to repair cheap TVs from unknown brands
Spare parts are not as readily accessible on cheap Television brands as they are for the main TV brands. This is often because there arent any parts kept in the UK by the manufacturer for the unbranded cheap TVs unlike the main brand televisions so it takes longer to get hold of the parts.
Also it is more difficult to repair unknown cheaper brand TVs because they havent got the technical support in the UK that the main brands do. As a result if an repair engineer struggles to carry out the repair he cant ask the manufacturer for assistance so it will be more likely that the TV cant be repaired. During the first 12 months this isnt a problem as the retailer that sold you the cheap TV will have to repair it or replace it. However after this period it means that it is more likely that you will have toreplace the cheaper unknown brand TV earlier than a main brand Television.
It is not unheard of when a branded TV has had very poor service history, for the manufacturer to swap, repair or subsidise the price of the repair outside of beyond the 12 month warranty as a good will gesture. It is unlikely that this would happen for a cheap TVs from an unfamiliar brand, which means that you would have to purchase a replacement one at an earlier time than if you had bought a recognized brand of TV.
How does the performance of cheaper unknown TV brands compare to known TV Brands?
The main brand TV manufacturers invest in research and development to improve the performance of the TVs. As a result the features, picture and sound quality will be superior to the unknown cheaper Television brands. Typically the cheaper unbranded televisions have second-rate out of date components that prevent them from performing as well as the branded televisions. This is evident if you compare them side by side and can be seen in the reviews in magazines such as What Video and What Hi-fi.
The cheaper brands of TVs arent as reliable and dont have the same specification and performance as known brands such as Sony, Toshiba, Panasonic, Philip, Hitachi, LG, Pioneer, JVC etc. For the small premium that major brand televisions sell for over cheaper unheard of and poorly supported cheap TV brands, it isnt worth purchasing the cheaper ones for the reason that you will almost certainly pay more in the long run – Especially if you spread the price difference over the lifetime of the Television. In fact in all probability the cheaper TVs are more expensive when all factors are considered. So purchase a known major brand of TV and save money in the long run.

GUARDIANS OF EVIL (LJ’s Biker Movie Idea)
I have been writing for years I have a few Biker book, Movie and even Biker Cartoon ideas. Because I have to be careful about posting them on-line so they do not get stolen I haven’t posted any. This is a very small part and just the beginning of a story I have been working on. It takes place in a world where the Government and the Police have become completely Corrupt. All the Motorcycle Clubs had been framed and blamed by the police for all the Crime and problems to cover and shift everyone’s attention from what our Government had been up to. When everything had fallen apart and America had fallen into the hands of the corrupt and Criminals where now running everything, There was no one left to turn to. The Bikers the world had been told to fear, Who had been shown as the ones who where evil, Decided it was time to turn the tables and they started the Motorcycle Club GUARDIANS OF EVIL in order to start to bring Justice back to the world. The idea of the character of Kyle is something along the lines of a mix of Dartanian in the three Musketeers and Bruce Wayne from Batman . He will become one of them, But first he must learn, And the Adventure Begins!!!
GUARDIANS OF EVIL:Scene 1 The Sky was dark and cloudy and a slight mist of rain started to fall on Kyle Star Jr’s face mixing with the tears that fell freely from his dark brown eyes, How appropriate though Kyle as he looked over the freshly dug hole that his fathers casket had been lowered into just hours before. With no raincoat or umbrella He was soon soaked and his shoulder length brown hair clung to his face. Everyone else had left long ago, his and his fathers, Friends Family and Fans had Hugged him and said things to Kyle to comfort him but they where like ghosts to him an he felt and heard nothing of what they said. Kyle looked around the cemetery and saw there where still 3 News vans there waiting. He knew they would want to talk to him, After all he was the son of the worlds greatest Motorcycle racer an at 6ft 160 lbs he was the spitting image of his late Father. He knew now that his Father was gone all everyone wanted to know was if He would be taking his Fathers place on the Race Track! Let them wait though Kyle, as he could not bear to leave his Fathers graveside yet. He knew that when he left the graveside the life he had once known would be gone forever. His father had been everything to him. His best Friend, his Mentor and his Hero. Kyle had never known his Mother an now at just 18 years old he found himself alone and on his own. The whole World had seen his Father die on the racetrack that day as he raced that one last time. He was far ahead in the lead and no others in the race where even close to him when He suddenly “lost control” of his motorcycle Crashing into the wall at close to 200 Miles an hour. Kyle had ran to help his Father but there was nothing he or anyone could do, A legend was gone Kyle Star Sr had died instantly!
Kyle Heard a voice whisper his name bringing him out of his dream like state. He looked up to see the Reporters face; he had seen her many times before on TV. She was not just any reporter but some well known big shot. She had interviewed Kyle’s Father more then once over the many years of his racing career, but at this moment she was just another Ghost to Kyle. What do you want he asked her? Kyle I’m sorry to bother you at this very sad time She said. But the world wants to know what you are going to do next after your father’s accident, Will you take his place? Will you race? Kyle’s faced turned red his eyes grew wide, he looked different even his voice seemed to change as he looked at her and said. The crash was NO Accident My Father was Murdered and I Know who is responsible! As Kyle looked straight into the Camera he spoke words that he would live to regret, “I will be coming for you!” Turning and looking at the reporter Kyle shouted “How’s that for an exclusive” Then he turned and walked away as the sky opened up and the rain started to come down hard!
Scene 2 The Taxi Pulled up in front of the bar and Kyle threw a handful of cash at the driver not even Bothering to count it. It had been six Months since his fathers Funeral and the man who stepped out of the Cab looked very little like the Man who had cried for hours by his Fathers graveside. Kyle now looked mean and rough a short beard on his face and his uncombed hair was covered by a Black dew-rag. The suit he had worn at his fathers funeral was now replaced with a t-shirt, leather vest, Blue jeans and work Boots. Kyle looked at the run down looking bar on the corner called “The Hoggs Penn” A clever play on The old Harley Nic Name, He though to himself. He saw about 20 Bikes parked out front, Most of them where Harley’s But he could see a few other Brands mixed in with the pack. This is it he though my fathers Killer is inside and soon one of us will be dead. He could hear the song Welcome to the Jungle By Guns an Roses blasting from the Juke box inside as he walked up to the door, opened it an walked inside. There was a large dirty looking Biker working the door in a cut off T-shirt with some Bike shops name on it. The Guys arms where Huge and covered in Tattoos. You got some ID there boy? He asked Kyle. How’s this? Kyle asked as he Placed a one Hundred dollar Bill on the table next to the Man. Looks good to me he said with a Smile as he put the cash in his pocket. Have fun JR he laughed as Kyle looked around the loud Smokey bar. The walls where covered in Biker posters and Hundreds of different stickers from Bike Shops, other Bars and Club Support stickers. The place was packed with many large Bikers; some had patches on their back showing they belonged to one club or another. There where five really great looking girls in very tight skimpy outfits Dancing on the Bar, on a different night in a different time I might have really enjoyed this place he though, as the first smile in a long time crossed his face. The smile only lasted a second as some drunk walked into him growling “watch where I’m walking boy” as he went past walking to the back of the bar heading towards the bathroom.
Kyle started thinking maybe I’m in over my head here as he saw most of these Bikers where much larger then him. One large Biker standing by the corner of the bar really stood out to Kyle, The guy had to be at least 6′ft 10in tall and over 300 lbs all of it muscle, he was wearing a long Black leather trench coat that went to about an inch from the floor, He had long golden blond hair that made him standout even more in the dark bar. Kyle felt as if this man was trying to warn him with his eyes. Kyle suddenly felt a hand on his shoulder and was spun around, he felt the wind get knocked out of him as he was punched in the gut harder then he had though possible. Four large Bikers grabbed him and pulled him towards two large doors in the back of the Bar. One of the Men kicked open the doors that lead to an alley out back. They dragged Kyle threw the doors and then tossed him to the ground. As he looked up he saw a large muscular Bald Black man about 6ft 2inches tall, wearing a black leather vest way to small for him. He had no shirt on underneath showing the world just how many muscles he had, lighting a cigar. He smiled at Kyle and then kicked him hard in his gut knocking the wind out of him once more. Boy you are about to learn a very valuable life lesson, unfortunately you isn’t going to live long enough for it to do you no good! Boy you never tell your enemy you are coming for him! An you go an do it on National TV. What was you thinking? Yeah said Kyle while trying to catch his breath. I realized that was probably not a good idea about two seconds after I did it. Kyle got a very serious look on his face as he said; I’m here to kill you Bob! You know that Right? Kyle stood up and pulled out a gun with the speed of an old west gun fighter. Badass Bob huh? How bad you feel right now with a Gun pointed at your head? Actually Boy I feel just fine! A split second later before Kyle could pull the trigger he found himself back on the ground with a large throbbing bump on the back of his head, one of Bob’s men had hit him hard with a crowbar. Kyle felt himself slowly passing out and the world going black around him, He could see Bob and his men standing over him smiling, they all had Guns in their hands. This is it Kyle though to himself now I die and my Fathers killer goes free! Just don’t seem right, where is the Justice in this world? Just Before the world went completely black and Kyle passed out, He could have sworn he saw a streak of Gold pass overhead and heard the sounds of someone fighting!
Scene 3 As Kyle woke he could feel a throbbing in his head,He could feel a large bump with his hand on the back of his head where he had been hit. He was laying on a couch in a room that was very bright. As he rolled over to look around the room he spoke the words “Where am I”. He was Surprised when he got the answer, Your still in the land of the living, So I would not worry about anything else right now! As Kyle looked to see who had spoken the words, he could see it was the large Golden haired man he had thought was warning him at the Bar. As Kyle looked around the room he could see there where other people in the room with them, They all looked like hardcore Bikers and on one of the walls he could see a banner hanging, on it where the words GUARDIANS OF EVIL MC …..

Motorola recently released a study were it reported that Europeans have become less than satisfied with having their TV schedules regulated by traditional broadcasters and are now watching TV on the web in growing numbers. Karl Elliot of Motorola told the BBC that a surprising 45% of Europeans are now watching at least a bit of television each week on their PCs or Laptops. Motorolas survey covered the UK, Italy, France, Germany and Spain and it was reported that the French were the leaders in embracing this cutting edge technology with a staggering 59% opting to watch episodes and previews of their favorite shows on the web.
This morphing of the online and TV worlds will only continue to accelerate as more and more users opt for more control of their entertainment ” giving them the power to watch what they want, when they want. Another recent joint research study was undertaken by Simply and the media group Work Research and they reported that as internet video usage has gone more mainstream in the US the PC has started to become the homes second TV. This phenomenon has mostly been adopted by men who find that watching video on the internet is an escape mechanism that allows them to dive into their interests and hobbies in the quiet of their own virtual shed. These internet tv viewers are rapidly showing signs of becoming more mainstream and are no longer considered techies.
What is being watched is also evolving from just the early comedy snippets that were the norm and now can be classified into one of three distinct groups:
Snippets ” these are less than 5 minutes in length, produced by amateurs and tend to be viewed when the user is multi-tasking.
Boutique ” these are also under five minutes in length but tend to be professionally produced and are more niches based on particular interests.
Catching Up ” these tend to be more than five minutes in length, are generated by professionals and the viewer is in a very relaxed mindset when viewing. This is also when the PC is really treated as the second TV.
Google Vice-President and one of the internets original architects Dr. Vint Cert recently spoke at a meeting of media heavyweights. Dr. Cert stated that the television industry is in the precarious position of a seismic paradigm shift that will soon have it staring into the same abyss of revolutionary change that recently smacked the music industry with the almost overnight acceptance of the stunningly popular MP3 player.
Dr. Cert stated 85% of all video that we watch is pre-recorded, so you can set your system to download it all the time. You are still going to need live television for certain things ” like the news, sporting events and emergencies ” but increasingly it is going to be almost like the iPod, where you download content to look at later.
Dr. Cert is not the only one that believes that these developments will not evolve slowly but will accelerate and that soon most of us will be accessing the majority of our entertainment online. This revolution of technology will prove to be both catastrophic to entrenched broadcast television but also equally liberating to the end user as waves of new interactive services emerge and evolve beyond even our wildest imaginations.
So are you going to sit back and just watch it happen, like the music industry, or are you one of those that wants to be an early adopter and find out how this technology will become a part of your everyday life? There is already a tremendous selection PC TV options available. These software systems will allow you to not only view what you want when you want but you also provide access to literally thousands of channels from around the world just by moving your mouse. So read the reviews and see what system is best for you so that you are able to take complete control of your television viewing and on your own terms!

Cable or satellite TV is a great way to get high definition channels. They both have access to plenty of HD stations, but depending on your personal wants, one may be better than the other.
In the upcoming year, cable and satellite subscriptions will surge because of the digital transition. For people with regular television, a digital converter box is needed. An alternative to buying a box is to upgrade to cable or satellite TV, which gives more channels as well as better picture.
There are tons of positive aspects for satellite television. The quality of picture is amazing and there is a seemingly limitless number of channels. Satellite is also known for having interesting capabilities, such as picture-in-picture.
On the downside, it can be expensive to set up a satellite system, as you need to purchase equipment and installation services. One of the most advertised disadvantages (by cable providers) is that satellite reception will cease in bad weather. This is true to some extent, but it usually takes especially severe weather to inhibit reception.
Cable TV is almost always cheaper than satellite because of the aforementioned equipment. Installation is also faster because cable is so easy to set up. Cable providers usually offer other services as well, such as phone and Internet, and by packing these options with television, you can enjoy overall lower costs.
A service that has so far been exclusive to cable (although it is starting to be seen in some satellite providers) is on-demand. With on demand, you can watch certain programs and movies any time, without needing to pre-record them. On demand greatly increases your viewing choices and lets you watch some shows later instead of the original air date.
Digital Video Recorder, or DVR, is provided (either free or for a fee) by cable and satellite distributors. This, like many other features, is found in both types of television. Cable and satellite do have a few differences, but they have even more similarities.
Sometimes you do not get the luxury of a decision. For example, if you live in a remote area, you will be forced to go with satellite and not even be able to get cable.

LCD is an abbreviation for Liquid Crystal Display and this is the most popular method used by lcd television manufacturers.
The nature of a television image is that it is constantly changing both in colour and in contrast.
To create different levels of brightness and contrast there must be a mechanism to enable and restrict the amount of light passing through the lcd television. All LCD televisions have at the back of the appliance a backlight.
The cylindrical property of a crystal allows light to flow through it. The twisted element of a crystal allows the regulation of the amount of light passing through. The amount of twist is dependent on the amount of electrical current passing through. Increase the current to tighten the crystal and therefore reduce/prevent light passing through ie dark scenes. Decrease the current to relax the crystal and allow light to flow through freely ie light colours. The complete restriction of light is impossible on this method though as however much current is passed into a crystal it can never fully prevent light passing through. Also, the close proximity of other pixels means light seepage to neighbouring crystals although this is kept to a minimum with polarized glass (see later). This is why it is well documented that LCD televisions cannot achieve and will not achieve a real true black.
The colour issue is created by sub dividing each pixel with three colour elements/crystals ie red, green and blue (primary colours). The interaction of these three colours creates the colour palette (contrast ratio) of the television.
The liquid crystals are sandwiched between two pieces of polarized glass ” sometimes described as mother glass. The polarization effect of the glass focuses the light source which is how LCD televisions can achieve such razor sharp images. One of these sheets of glass is coated with a special polymer which secures the thousands of crystals required to create an lcd television display.
The driving force of the lcd television is the matrix of transistors which disseminates the information to each of the individual pixels. By distributing the information effectively, the appropriate pixel produces the necessary colour and hue, and as this can be performed upto 100 times a second, this is more than enough to create a very fluid and accurate image.
An lcd television is a complex piece of equipment, that requires multiple processes to correspond instantaneously. The inability to create a true black is always an issue due to light bleed but with further developments in LED specific pixel lighting technology as opposed to a blanket back light the challenge is on to create the perfect screen.

All have heard about the online video phenomenon that is hitting the internet. Viewers by the millions are going online to upload and watch online video content each day. Often, videos are a more effective way to convey an advertiser’s message than typical offline advertising. And because video is becoming so mainstream, the cost to create online video content is extremely low and affordable for almost anyone. Online video has seen massive improvements in the past 2 years with regard to broadband connectivity, streaming, etc… Keeping in mind the vast popularity of online video as a method of internet marketing, it is important to learn the techniques most effective for optimizing your video for search engines.
1) In order to have your video more easily discovered, one very popular technique is to submit a text transcript along with your video for users and for the search engines to understand and index your video more easily. Use a keyword rich title for the transcript and be sure to include an introduction or summary that describes the video content in text form.
2) Keep in mind that when users search for videos on search engines, often time they use the word “video” in their search. For example, “car racing video.” Therefore, in addition to the keywords that you are targeting, also be sure to include the word “video” or “videos” in your description, text, title, meta data, etc…
3) Search engine crawlers rely a lot on the link texts to figure out what the video is all about as they are not capable to figure out the contents of the video otherwise. Therefore it is advisable to get as many back links as possible for your video.
4) Video sitemaps are a great way for you to tell the search engines where all of your video content resides. With video sitemaps, you make it much easier for search engines to discover and index your online video in a rapid manner.
5) When hosting video content on your own, keep in mind that flash is next to impossible for search engines to read and understand. Try to work with a format that is not flash. However, the simplest way to enable video on your site is via the popular flash players. That being said, do your best to take advantage of the other tips for SEO so that search engines can easily understand what it is your video is about.
6) Create search engine friendly keyword URLs for your video pages. To do this, you can use mod-rewrite function or htaccess file so that the URLs are freely assessable and readable by the search engines.
7) Various video search engines use to capture thumbnails of your in different manner. Some of them take the first frame of your video, while others try to take from the middle or end. It is better to experiment with each site individually to make sure they are displaying the right thumbnail for your video. A video thumbnail is always crucial when it comes to decide for a viewer which video to watch.
Try to keep one video per page and put all video pages into the same directory or folder.
Beside the above mentioned points there are few more points relevant for the optimization:
9) Keyword research, as with search engine optimization for other online content, is crucial for targeting the audience you desire most effectively. Use keyword research tools available in order to identify those words that most often are searched for when searching for related content online.
