With the average household replacing their TV every five to seven years, it's no surprise that consumers are struggling to keep up with the latest technologies. Looking ahead 3DTV is emerging as the next generation of home entertainment, but consumers would be wise to consider past trends before investing in their next TV set, to ensure that their new TV will not be immediately superseded by a new model. One TV trend that does persist is price: price goes down with time. LCDs, for example, saw a 40 percent price drop over the last 6 years as each new generation of technology enters the market.

Commenting on the research, Simon Migliano, tech specialist, notes:

"Because television technologies are growing, while others shrink, made this Infographic to help people navigate the constantly changing terrain and answer the questions: is it time to buy a new TV, and if so, which one?" urges TV shoppers to consider all the facts before purchasing a TV, and read up on what they want, and what they don't need before heading to the store. With this Infographic, TV shoppers can make a smarter purchase and get the most for their money. For a complete TV Buying Guide, visit:
