The Difference Between LCD And Plasma TVs

When going to your electronics store to purchase a new television set, consumers should be educated as to the difference between LCD (liquid crystal display) and plasma televisions. Each has their pros and cons, but both will give the consumer a phenomenal picture.

Plasma televisions work by the electrifying of the gases neon and xenon to make plasma. These televisions come in sizes between 32 and 63" in size, have flat panel displays, and produce a clear crisp picture.

A consumer can view a plasma television in a 160 degree angle and are made for high definition viewing with the proper signal. Some of the downfalls of a plasma television include increased cost, screen burn-in, and the production of annoying buzzing noise at altitudes higher than 6,500 feet.

LCD televisions work in a similar way except they use liquid crystal instead of neon and xenon. They come in sizes between 20 and 50" in size, have flat panel displays, and usually have a built-in tuner, not to mention a clear sharp picture.

A consumer can view LCD televisions in a 120-130 degree angle. They operate well in high altitudes and are energy efficient. The downfalls of a LCD television include a slightly slower response time which can produce a trailing effect, limited viewing angle, and some color concerns due to lighting issues where the television is placed in the room.

Depending on what the consumer prefers, both televisions are worth the money spent on them. LCD's are still better for computer use is desired, but there are some plasma manufacturers producing sets that can be used as a computer monitor as well.
