Looking For A New Television? Plasma Or L C D?

Nov 26, 2007
During the 1950's a great thing happened to the entertainment division of consumer electronics - it was the time when television was made colored. Then a few decades later the consumer electronic industry introduced the infra red remote control. Both developments were most significant to the users since it brought with it the convenience and the ultimate entertainment experience.

Now there are two kinds of displays that are competing in the television consumer market share - the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and the Plasma TV. Interior designers, architects and even home owners now are constantly searching for things that can save space because the price for space is constantly on an uphill drive. The thinner the appliance the more attractive and viable it is for an urban lifestyle living.

Home appliance consumers have welcomed the technology with open arms since these displays come in big sizes giving the viewer a "wow" experience because of its crisp, clear and lifelike images. Traditional televisions that rival these sizes eat up a lot of space and consume more electricity.

But for ordinary consumers who want a piece of the flat panel action it would be a brain drain looking at these displays and not knowing the advantages or disadvantages.

Size

When it comes to sizes these panels affirm the phrase "bigger is better". Since these slim displays only have an average thickness of 5 inches; it can virtually fit to any wall or even perhaps the ceiling. But for buyers who would be modest about the sizes of their electronic appliances, LCD television units have more variety of sizes to choose from since Plasma TV starts its size at 32 inches.

Consumption

The power consumption for these displays may vary relative to its size. But in this area the LCD wins. Displays at 32 inch sizes were tested and the LCD consumed of about 30 - 40% less power than its Plasma counterpart.

Distance and Viewing Angles

Viewing distances for both Plasma and LCD TV would basically be the same and are both dependent on size. In the viewing angle area, the LCD TV possesses a whopping 174 degrees of viewing angle as compared to the Plasma which is only 145 degrees.

Color and Resolution

Against color depth the Plasma TV produces the true black color than the LCD TV. But now LCD manufacturers have come up with the High Definition resolution which is called the HD 1080i.

All in all, both the LCD and the Plasma TV have its own pros and cons. It's all up to the user's preference. Both have far more superior advantages over the traditional CRT television.
