LCD's are price competitive and use less power than plasma saving at least 30% less than plasma. LCD's are also lighter than plasma making it easier to move around. Plasma's get screen burn which isn't as common with LCD's. LCD's have a longer duration than plasma screens. LCD's also has more pixels on a screen than the plasma. They are lighter than plasma's making it easier to move around. Plasma TV's would lose half there brightness after about 30,000 hrs of viewing whereas the LCD would lose half there brightness after about 60,000 hrs. LCD's also have better viewing angle up to 170 degrees and plasma's only go up to 160 degrees. An LCD can't be beaten in terms of picture quality and value. LCD's last up to twice as long as Plasma. They are available in higher screen resolutions and they use lower voltages.
