  1. Your cheap LCD TV can take punishment.

    Not every television needs to be the center of a home theater system. You can afford to treat a cheap LCD TV with a little less care, making it perfect for the garage or the kitchen, where it might be exposed to moisture, heat and scratches.

  2. Smaller and cheaper TVs are more portable.

    Take a small, cheap LCD TV and install it in your RV, boat or summer house. You won't be using it that often, so a cheap TV makes more sense for bringing entertainment to those locations. Plus, smaller LCD screens use less energy than their widescreen counterparts.

  3. Cheap TVs are great for students.

    A dorm room can be a dangerous place for an LCD TV, so it may be best not to pick out a premium HDTV for your student. A compact, inexpensive LCD TV is better suited to that limited space. And after graduation, your student may want to upgrade to a bigger, higher-quality television.

  4. The kids don't need a big television.

    For video games and your kids' favorite videos, a cheap LCD TV works just fine. Get one of the smaller cheap LCD TVs for the children's room. They'll get their own little entertainment center, and you'll save a lot of money compared to a larger model.

  5. Even cheap LCD TVs have a superior picture.

    A cheap LCD TV screen is still worlds better than your old tube TV. Any HDTV will give you a high-definition picture and superior entertainment quality. You can enjoy Blu-ray movies, HD television content and the latest video game consoles in stunning detail with even a cheap LCD TV and limited features.
