Planning to get a flat-panel LCD TV or Plasma TV

By: Nabin


When shopping for a new TV it's important to determine which technology is best suited for your needs. In the world of flat panel televisions, you'll have to choose between a plasma television and a flat panel LCD TV. Obviously, the technologies behind these units are quite different. Many folks would describe them as slim, with a better picture and significantly superior resolution. At first look, LCD and plasma are similar. Though the differences between LCD and plasma are fewer; but you need to know something more about these before you are planning to purchase.
Generally; plasma TV models outperform LCDs when it comes to picture quality which can produce deeper blacks (better contrast) & ads to the viewing experience. Color accuracy is an area where both plasma and flat panel LCD perform both in a similar manner, some models being better while others having acceptable performances at best.
Plasma TVs have always been better than flat panel LCD TVs at displaying fast moving scenes as sports or action movies. For a while LCD TVs would produce blurry edges around the moving objects in the picture.
Plasma TVs maintain an unaltered picture when viewed off-axis. Not the same thing can be said about LCD TV screens because of a slight alteration of the picture quality. LCD manufacturers were unable to improve enough, to make their models on par with plasma TVs.

Both plasma and LCD technologies have certain inherent problems. The latest models have managed to address these problems quite well, however they are still possible. The biggest problem with plasma TVs is "burn in", while in the case of LCD TVs the problem has been with dead pixels. Latest models of LCDs do not present this problem anymore, however plasma TVs are still affected by burn-in if "abused".
