Can you compare the picture quality of LCD TV's with plasma TV's?
Interesting question. Having worked on LCD, DLP and plasma sets, I've found that a lot of it depends on several factors. Truth is, they can all provide fantastic pictures, but they also vary from model to model.
Much of it depends on your signal source, and one of the things you need to keep in mind, is when you're in a store looking at all the displays, the store will have provided the highest quality HDTV signal they can afford in their system, and they'll all look great.
When you get it home though, it's going to be a different story. It depends on whether you're taking the signal off air, whether or not you have analog or digital satellite or digital cable, how good the signal is from the receivers or cable box and whether or not it's a HD receiver/cable box.
But that's just the beginning. Are you using the HDMI (High definition Multimedia Interface) connection, RGB cables (quality varies greatly) or the regular RF inputs.
LCD TV's now have 1080 resolution, so does DLP and Plasma. So taking all the other items into consideration, it's really a personal choice of appearance, how it's mounted and optional features as well as personal budget.
The "best picture" comes when you have an extended warranty contract, and a reliable company to back it up. The reason for this is simply because some replacement parts and service calls would cost you as much as the TV did originally. That's something I've seen time and time again.
Plasma TVs are better because they offer absolutely no lag time compared to LCDs and they have the highest black levels. Plasmas will use slightly more power, but overall better picture quality. LCD TVs are slightly more inexpensive, but comparing them side to side with a Plasma You will see the difference in quality.
What are the primary differences between plasma and lcd tvs and which one is most effective with digital cable?
lcd's are more durable than plasma. Lcd's offer good picture quality even in poor lighting. lcd is more power efficient than plasma. lcd's are lighter in weight. Plasma has slightly bigger screen size than lcd. I feel lcd is more effective with digital cable because it has higher image resolution than plasma.
Probably an LCD because I know a friend that has a big plasma and I have an LCD The LCD has better graphics and the plasma is a little blurry. If you have a big screen then it sucks for a ps2 but works really good with Xbox 360 and PS3, I'm not sure about just the normal Xbox though. also you can view a plasma at an angle and the picture is still there…
HD is a format that is defined by the number of pixels in the picture. HD can be in projection TV's, LCD's or plasma screens. Plasma screens give the best quality picture in HD; however, they are more expensive, require more power, and don't last as long as LCD flat screen. Most homes are best suited with LCD. So in short, all plasma screens are HD, but not all HD is plasma.
Plasma and LCD televisions are the two top produced tv varieties available today. Plasma offers a few advantages over LCD in the picture quality. One of the top noticeable advantage is in color as a Plasma television produces deeper blacks giving a higher contrast look. A few other advantages of Plasma are that they have less motion blur due to high refresh rates, and wider viewing angles than LCD screens.
LCD is better for hd viewing and the colours wil be more bright on lcd but plasma has got a glass screen and the colours are a little bit dimmer but the picture is great for standard viewing aswell as hd viewing , i have a lcd and for standard viewing the upsetted me but a hd plasma i have to say is better than a lcd in my opinion
This is entirely based on opinion. However, there are companies that rate the picture quality with sophisticated software that can measure black levels, contrast, color accuracy, white levels, etc. In general, plasma has much better black levels and contrast ratio, while LED TVs are brighter and are able to produce more vivid colors. Most true home theater gurus agree that plasma has a more natural, deeper, richer picture over LED or LCD.
LCD and plasma are very different display technologies but both produce good results. Plasma is the more mature technology but LCD has been developed rapidly over the last few years. It is difficult to say that one is better than the other. Plasma is known for its higher contrast ratio but LCD is fast catching up as far as contrast is concerned. On the other hand, plasma has had persistence issues in the past, with…
Plasma, plasma can have the "burn in screen" but so can lcd, lcd is actually more likely to burn in that a plasma, now the whole picture wont burn in but each individual pixel will, For Plasma TVs, the advantages over LCD, are: Better contrast ratio, better ability to render deep blacks, more color depth, better motion tracking (response time), and more availability in very large screen sizes.
LCD and PLASMA are the new types of monitors.in CRT ie the conventional TV receiver there is the picture tube in which cathode ,control grid, pre accelerating anode ,focussing anode , accelerating anode, deflection yoke, fluresent screen etc are present.all these are absent in LCD & PLASMA TV more details contact Mr ABHILASH 09746612456
