Tip & How-To about Televison & Video

Choose the best between LED, Plasma and LCD HDTVs.

If you have not enough knowledge about the current TV technologies, so it may a little scary in choosing best out of different TVs which is better, LCD HDTV or Plasma HDTV?

These below tips will help you choose between different HDTVs and find out which will be best to suit your needs.


1. The LED HDTVs are a new breed. The technology of LED HDTVs is changing rapidly. The technology is new and very expensive. I would not suggest you to buy LED until the price drops and the technology of LED HDTVs evolve. Now choose between Plasma or LCD screen.


2. The Plasma is best in the contrast ratio category. The contrast ratio of LCD screens has caught up but still can not beat Plasma.


3. For moving images, such as chase scenes in movies, Plasma is best out of LCDs. Plasma TVs can be viewed from almost complete side. When your room is small where you putting your TVs, but it does not matter.


4. Both Plasma and LCD have same life time; this factor depends on the manufacturer. Do not base your judgment on number alone. So, make sure to read online reviews of the TVs.


5. In the case of large HDTVs, such as 50 inches and bigger, Plasma is probably superior. The companies like Samsung and LG have made very large Plasmas that have proven to be very good.


6. If you want to power consumption, LCDs are best, The LCD TVs use about half the power of the total consumption generally.

best plasma TV HDMI


None.All Plasma tvs designs are alway have high heat output and consume alot more A/C power energy than any other tvs designs out there.Tvs like CRT-tube tvs,DLP tvs -Projection tubes and projection lamps tvs,LCD-flourescent tubes tvs as Liquid crystal display screen tvs.All these tvs designs are all good tvs designs to buy but the pictures display and screen lighting and the sharpness of the pictures never have and able to compare high enough qualities as a display picture on the screen output to a Plasma screen tvs,until now LED-tvs are LCD and LED screen display combine to make it better and brighter technologies and now are good enough to compare to a Plasma screen panel tv.So buy a LED tv will get less heat output and comsume less A/C power energy too and it is good enough pictures qualities too.To compare too as a plasma screen panel tvs output.

just purchased tv and the quality of the picture is still fuzzy tried to mess around with the resolution but it still isnt very sharp at all


Hi,
The TVs produce picture using entirely different methods. Usually the colors and especially level of black color are better on plasma, LCD will have some trouble various shades of gray and black especially shading on peoples faces etc.. This is not a defect in the LCD just a limitation in current technology.

Hi sassyl,

Both technologies are a great way to save space when you replace your CRT or projection TV, but do have their differences. For instance, LCD TVs are more likely to have PC connectivity, but plasma TVs are more likely to have a wider viewing angle. Depending on how you intend to use the product, in what kind of room you plan to install it, and your own personal preferences, it is up to you to determine which technology better suits your needs.

Using a search engine, you should be able to find one of several comparison articles or charts online for better understanding.

Thank you,
Jason,
