Led Vs Lcd Vs Plasma Hdtv?

LED uses less power than LCD or Plasma so given electricity bills are going up that might sway your choice.

Led Vs Lcd Vs Plasma Hdtv?

Plasma all the way-Only thing Plasma Starts at 42" and goes up

-better and deeper blacks

-wider off angle viewing

-awesome for fast motion-600Hz refresh rate while the top LCDs/LEDs are only 240Hz-Best for gaming and sports watching

with a LCD you will have to drop it to 60Hz for gaming to help eliminate the lag

-No burn in-on new plasmas-was a problem 5 years ago

-they do use more power than the LCDs-But really if you cant afford the possible 3-5 bucks a month in and increase in your power bill-You do not need to be buying a big tv to begin with.

-The short life people are talking about equals about 10-15 years of watching. really who wont buy a new tv in 10 freaking years???

-I have my 65" Hung about 4' from a 72" window and even with the blinds open i have no trouble seeing it or get any annoying reflections. But The ceiling light that is behind the couch will reflect off it at night.

Right now the top Plasmas are made by Panasonic(according to Cnet, consumer reports and a few home video mags). Right now 50" 1080p ( i own this one and the 65" version) at best buy USA around 899 for the 50" 720p is 599

LED tvs are just a LCD with a LED back light instead of Florissant tubes!!!!!!!!!!

LED tvs ARE JUST LCD with different backlighting they still suffer all the drawbacks of LCD but are just brighter

LED every time, for numerous reasons.

Have a look at a Samsung 6 Series

Plasma has more realistic color but LED has more blur-free motion and brighter picture.
Also, LED will not "burn it" if you play a video game for hours and hours.

Plasma is generally considered the best (and no burn in isn't an issue any longer) . However, Plasma's also use more power and can be fragile. (You can't ship them flat, they have to stand up veriticle even when shipping).

LED and LCD are both LCD screens.

Traditional LCD is lit by phosphorescent tubes.

LED is lit by LED lights.
