LCD Vs Plasma: Take a Choice!!

If you’ve been wondering whether to go for an LCD TV or a Plasma TV this festive season, here are a few tips that might help. 

Unfortunately, there is no clear-cut answer to this age-old question. Which type of TV you buy really depends on factors like what you’ll be watching, what size you need and what is your budget. 

However, apart from all these, there are inherent advantages and disadvantages in both the technologies

They’re also better for fast-moving images (mainly sports and movies). And finally, Plasma TVs are more affordable than LCDs for the same screen size. You can go for LG’s 42” HD ready frame less Plasma (42PG61UR-TA) or Samsung’s 42” Series 4 Plasma (PS42A410C1) at under Rs 65,000. Whereas a 40” HD ready LCD will put you back by another Rs 5,000.However, Pasmas are showing their age. Many are not full HD (the highest resolution available is 1920×1080 pixels) and not completely future proof. They’re still susceptible to ‘burn in; — the permanent etching of a static image on the inside of the screen when left on for too long. 

LCDs are the newer technology. You’ll find a lot more full HD LCDs. They have longer lifespans, compared to the average plasma (Plasmas tend to get dimmer over the course of time). 

LCDs also work better with video games. Plus the new generation LCDs like Samsung Series 6, LG Scarlet and Sony-Bravia X or W series can easily match or beat Pasmas in most departments.
