LCD or DLP - Which Is Best screen For You?

By: mastan

For the past couple of years, the battle for competing TV
screen superiority has been mainly between plasma screen
TVs and LCD TVs. And to be sure, either would make a fine
choice for the average television viewer. And in terms of
sheer numbers sold, plasma TVs have outsold LCD’s up to this
point. But increasingly TV manufacturers, such as Sony, have
been shifting away from plasma screens to newer technologies
instead, and one of those is DLP.
DLP stands for Digital Light Processing, while LCD stands
for Liquid Crystal Display. They both use completely
different ways to create the image on a television screen,
although the final product is remarkably similar when viewed
side by side. There are only a few minor differences to be
considered and here they are:

LCD screens tend to be best when viewed at a direct angle
to the TV, in other words, pretty much right in front of it.
Older LCD screens especially were hard to view as the viewing
angle increased to the side, but many of the newer sets have
improved on that issue, although it is still more narrow a
field of view than that of DLP screens.

LCD monitors do display bright colors very well though,
especially in a room that already has bright ambient lighting.
They probably accomplish this better than any other display
technology, so if you will be watching the screen in a brightly
lit room, LCD may be your best choice.

DLP screens boasts higher refresh rates, so the screen is
drawn more often in the same period of time. What this means
is that fast action sequences that are often found in movies
and sports will appear smoother on a DLP screen than on LCD.
So if sports is a large part of your viewing experience,
perhaps DLP gets the nod here.

As far as price is concerned, there isn't a huge difference
these days and both LCD and DLP TV prices are falling steadily
as plasma screens are not as dominant as they used to be.

So which screen is best for you? That is hard to answer without
you actually viewing both types of screen types side by side at
the same time. It's a good idea to visit a local electronics
retailer in your area to make this comparison using some of the
points mentioned above to color your buying decision as well.
You actually will no doubt be satisfied with either screen type,
but making the comparison in person will help you choose based
on your own personal opinions.
