Plasma or LCD?
I have owned both and if you buy a plasma tv , make sure it has burn in protective properties to prevent artifacts from remaining on the screen. By artifacts I mean , for instance, the station logos like TNT, CBS, SCYFY that normally appear in the right lower corner of your screen. They, and any fixed images as such, are always there causing the gas pixels in a plasma tv to degenerate faster, whereas an LCD tv uses liquid crystal and has less chance of burn in or artifacts from making themselves part of the screen. Other than that , the picture on both sets can be awesome on the higher cost brand name products as well as some of the other less expensive less popular brands of TV. It's just the matter of longevity. I owned a 42" Haier which has since been replace by a Toshiba Regza 42" LCD and am much happier with the LCD tv due to the burn in issues I was beginning to have with the Haier plasma tv. Otherwise the performance and picture quality was still equal when viewing HDTV or DVD's. My suggestion to you is to check on-line at www.consumersearch.com on the differences then go to a television store / sales rep and have him explain the same differences and benefits before you purchase either.
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…
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
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.
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.
The difference between plasma and lcd TV is the type of material that is used to project the image. LCD has a good image but plasma has a better image. The only problem with plasma is that there is a greater chance of burning an image into the screen from overuse. LCD screens emit no light of their own, they need to be back lit by flourescent tubes or White LED's. They are cheaper to…
What is the diffrence between lcd an plasmama lot of my friends are geting me confusedtell me you always have good opinon. Thanks Gary Schmid ?
Plasma screens are less energy efficient than LCD screens, per square inch. LCD screens are more subject to blurring than plasma screens. The color saturation and black-level performance are considered slightly better in plasma screens, though it depends on model. Plasma screens have a greater likelihood of burn-in than LCD screens.
An LCD monitor utilizes liquid crystals between two glass panels. A plasma monitor uses gases rather than liquids. There are benefits and drawbacks to both technologies. An LCD monitor is best when viewed in a direct line while an plasma can be viewed at an angle. However an LCD is a better choice in a sunny room as there will be less glare.
