    PLASMA v LCD
    Having trouble deciding between plasma and LCD televisions? You’re not the only one. The truth is you are not going to go wrong with either. Each technology still gives you a far greater picture than any analog TV, and with the widescreen image you get to see more information.

    In general LCD TVs are best for more well lit rooms, however, Plasma TVs give a better image when you have solid light control.

    If you tend to watch your TV a lot during the day then we recommend LCD TVs. If most of your TV watching is in the evenings, then we would recommend Plasma technology. Plasma TVs will give typically give you a sharper image but because of their reflective glass, it really depends on your viewing times.

    On the other hand LCD TVs are best for playing video games, or for hooking up to PCs, as they less likely to suffer “burn-in”, which can be caused by having static images on the screen for too long. Plasma TVs, however, are best for watching movies and sports.

    The key thing is that you are living in high definition, but, to help you out we’ve got this handy chart to help you determine which technology is best for you.

    Plasma LCD
    General
    Screen sizes
    42-65+ inches
    5-65+ inches
    Cabinet depth
    3+ inches
    3+ inches
    Power consumption
    Slightly less-efficient per square inch
    Slightly more-efficient per square inch
    Off-angle viewing
    Excellent from all angles
    Image fades slightly when seen from extreme angles from sides or from above or below
    Reflectivity of screen
    Glass screens can reflect lots of light, so may be an issue in very bright rooms. Some models have glare-reducing screens that are more- or less-effective
    Matte plastic screens usually reflect less light. Some models have screens that are actually more reflective than plasma
    Features
    PC connectivity
    Less common but still included on many models
    More common than with plasma
    Other features
    Varies per model
    Varies per model
    Picture quality
    Motion blur caused by display
    Negligible
    Difficult to discern on most models, although subject to more blurring than plasma. 120Hz models less-subject to motion blur
    Black-level performance (depth of “black” displayed)
    Varies, although excellent on many models.
    Varies, although generally worse than plasma on many models, and better than plasma on best models
    Color saturation
    Varies, although generally a bit better than LCD due to black level and off-angle advantages
    Varies, although the best models can equal the best plasmas
    Resolution
    Typically 720p, up to 1080p on high-end models. The benefits of 1080p are not obvious at screen sizes below 50 inches to the majority of viewers.
    Typically 720p, but 1080p is more common than plasma at more price and size points. The benefits of 1080p are not obvious at screen sizes below 50 inches to the majority of viewers
    Durability
    Burn-in (faint after-images left on-screen)
    Possible with still images left on-screen with very bright settings for hours, although new models much less susceptible, and most burn-in is temporary and goes away after watching moving images
    May occur in extreme situations (very bright still images left on-screen for days) but much less likely than with plasma or even standard tube TVs.
    Lifespan (hours until fades to half-brightness)
    Typically 60,000 hours, or about 20 years if used 8 hours per day.
    Typically 60,000 hours, or about 20 years if used 8 hours per day.
    Program type
    HDTV
    Excellent
    Excellent for HDTV-compatible models.
    Standard-definition TV
    Dependent mostly on screen size. The smaller the screen, the better standard-def usually looks
    Dependent mostly on screen size. The smaller the screen, the better standard-def usually looks
    DVD Movies
    Excellent given a model with good black-level performance
    Very good, although models with worse black-level performance are less desirable
    Games
    Excellent for most users, although burn-in might deter gamers who leave screens paused for hours or overnight
    Excellent, although motion blur might deter the most sensitive gamers
