What's the difference between plasma and LCD TVs these days?
I've noticed a few more plasma TVs showing up for sale in stores - considerably cheaper than LCDs of equivalent size and features, so what's the catch?
Answer by RenTech
I have a pioneer plasma cost me $ 6000, I did allot of research and found that the high end TV,s are Plasma it's like Mac and a PC , they both do very much the same thing but at the end of the day it must be justified.They both have there place in the market.....Not like Blu-ray and HDDVD where Blu-ray was the clear cut champion
LCD uses a bulb thats why its brighter but contrasts differently in some spots around the edges tend to be less bright
LCD technology has been around for ages , its OK for a computer but not a TV , Ghosting or MOTION BLUR, LCD can not and never will be able to handle FAST motion, thats why Gamers the avid ones are still using CRT rather then the lagging LCD, Also -True color representation , It has been proven the Plasma out Does LCD buy the a long shot, Last but not least MOVIE's tend to be Blacker Darker scenes with faster Motion , PLASMA display the Darkest Black....And for me that was the deciding issue I don't like the way LCD TV'S have that grey instead of Black
P.S - I have a top of the line LED TV too Just because they don't make Plasmas in 32" It looks good , But not as good as the plasma.....Look in the near future for something called OLED
Oh And LED is a LCD TV just a different light source, Instead of a bulb it uses LED's Behind the crystals.
The average display life of a PLASMA in 60,000 hrs
Display life of a LCD 60,000 hrs That's like 7 years none stop 24 hrs per day
Do you why they pick that number? because both technologies have not been around long enough to test them that long so they just put that number on it.....Your going to get 30 years out of a TV with 60,000 hrs I think by that time you'll be glad it failed so you finally can go out and get another......Cheers
