The LCD vs Plasma Television Debate



Choosing the right television for your living room of home theater has raised a real "fork in the road" question for several years now, Plasma or LCD. As the original flat panel days evolved Plasma was the emerging future of the newest technology and was looking like the long term option for production around the world. As LCD's emerged they seemed to offer a solution to the often higher priced Plasma's which were developing a reputation for having problems with "burn in" and a "short life span" of 6 to 10,000 hours. Even though these issues have been addressed where even the most used Plasma television would last 45 years if on every day for 6 hours, LCD is winning out as major manufacturers are abandoning Plasma production including Vizio and Pioneer with more to follow.

One thing many of you will notice in a side by side comparison which will draw your eye and probably dollars is the often brighter LCD that really pops on the sales floor. They are intentionally brightened as the sellers know people associate brighter with better not to mention you are more likely to pat attention to these models. On the other hand the sales floor is often illuminated with fluorescent lighting which only hurts the case of the Plasma even more which is why the smaller / higher end electronic stores are more successful with them. Add to this the cost effectiveness and availability of the LCD and other negative myths like Plasma screens omitting harmful gas and needing to be refilled with plasma gas once in a while, and the future looks quite bleak for the suffering Plasma production. The good news is, LCD technology continues to improve and the prices are getting lower every year proving that the benefits of competition and mass production still show up in the price tag.
