Dear friend the best way to decide on a HD TV is by considering what size you want, LCD are a good choice although a little expensive, they are much more reliable. Plasmas on the other hand are more popular and a little more affordable and expect them to drop even more. On my opinion if you want anything over 40" go plasma, under that try LCD.

<p><span>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?</span><br /> <p><span>These below tips will help you choose between different HDTVs and find out which will be best to suit your needs.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>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.</span><br /> <p><span><span> </span></span><br /> <p><span>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.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>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.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>4.

Plasma -vs- LCD? Pros and Cons


If you're looking into a new TV purchase these days, you have only a few options… Plasma and LCD are major hitters. What follows is this professional’s opinion; you must ultimately do the research yourself.


Plasma TVs
Pros: Exceptional color reproduction. Our eyes have become accustom to viewing TVs with Phosphorus displays. As with TVs of old, Plasma TVs also use Phosphorus to create the beautiful colors our eyes crave. The viewing angle (side to side) and refresh rate (rate at which the image is refreshed) of a Plasma product shines above most other product types. Plasma TVs also have a glass protection screen in front of the panel which can help protect the panel from impact. Prices have fallen recently and have made the Plasma TV a very affordable purchase.

Cons: Energy usage. Using a Plasma TV has been likened to 'leaving the refrigerator door open'. Reliability and longevity are also a factor to consider. Over time, the Plasma panel becomes more sensitive; “Sparkles” or misfiring pixels are common. The Plasma uses many high power components; which, due to failure, have given it a less than reliable stigma. Image retention and image burn are quick to occur. Realistically, 5-7 years of life.


LCD TVs
Pros: Light weight and bright picture. Color reproduction has improved by leaps and bounds over the recent years. Some products available do rival the Plasma products in picture quality and reproduction. Cost cuts have also brought the LCD into the price range of many. Energy usage is typically less than that of the Plasma. Image retention is not a major concern for this product. Less parts than a Plasma = Less failure. LCD panel life is estimated to be about 10 years.

Cons: LCD panels use back-lighting systems. Because the 'color' of the light does not change, the color reproduction of the LCD product is not as natural to the eye as the Plasma product.


LCD-LED TVs
(Same as LCD TV, with the following exceptions)
Pros: LED back-lighting produces a more Plasma like color response.

Cons: Panel life is about 70% that of the standard LCD products.

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.

Confused between lcd's!!!


All LCD,Plasma tvs these day are very similar designs and qualities,but don't buy unknown brands,because when u require boards for defective tvs that require electronics boards replacement.Better chance to find refurbishes pcb boards.If u have name brand tvs models.U like the LG model,think it better buy the LG models.

Flat Panel TVs


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,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
