LCD and Plasma

LCD TV or a plasma TV continue to fascinate TV watchers. Though, many people find temselves confused between the two. So, which one is better, especially considering the onset of festive season. However, answer can be given in a straightforward way. Both of them their own strengths and qualities. The selection will depend upon your budget, preferred size and what you will be watching. Comparing the two, plasma TVs possess higher viewing angles and they can also render blacks in a much more effective way than LCDs. Even if you are sitting in a corner and watching Plasma TVs, image quality won’t change and fast moving images also look better in them. Most often screen size is same in both TVs. But, plasma TVs are relatively more affordable in the two. For example, if one is going for Samsung’s 42” Series 4 plasma (PS42A410C1) or LG’s 42” HD ready frame less plasma (42PG61UR-TA), it will cost him near about Rs 65,000. In comparison, 40” HD ready LCD will cost him Rs 5,000 more.

But LCDs belong to new generation. They have full HD LCDs and more durability in terms of age. In truth, most of the newly launched LCDs like Sony-Bravia X or W series, Samsung Series 6 and LG Scarlet are definitely more superior than any plasma TVs. Even while playing video games, LCDs offer a better choice than plasma TVs.     

Plasmas, on the other hand are prone to ‘burn in’. Most of them are not full HD (the highest resolution available is 1920×1080 pixels). They also have reflective, glassy screens and not very effective in brightly lit rooms.

To finish with, one should make his own choice by doing proper comparison and after evaluating his requirements.
