LCD Vs LED Vs Plasma - Which One Is Really Better?

Nov 21st 2012 at 10:26 PM

Led HDTVs have become extremely popular throughout the years. More and more people are starting to join the LED crowd with the number increasing every day. However, out of everyone that buys those LEDs, how many of them actually know how they really work or if it even offers any advantages when it comes to an LCD vs LED or plasma. This has been quite a debate for some time. You have some people telling you that the plasma is better and some telling you the LCD is better. The only way to really find out is to do a side by side comparison and base our findings on actual facts instead of opinions.

LCD vs plasma: When it comes to comparing an LCD to plasma, many people will have a difference of opinion when it comes to picture quality. In my opinion, the picture quality is a tossup. Both TVs give you great picture depending on what you're watching. Watching sports on a plasma TV seems to be slightly more preferable, while watching 3D movies seem to be geared more towards the LED. Again, it really depends on the preference and opinion of the consumer.

Where the differences really stand out are in size, energy consumption and life span. The LED is much lighter than the plasma, which makes it extremely easy to mount or set up. The LED also uses a significant less amount of energy. Plasma can consume up to 60% more power than the LED. This is because the plasma uses burning phosphorus gas to portray its picture. This also could be the reason why the LED lasts longer. Since the LED uses light emitting diodes and not phosphorus gas, it does not run the risk of eventually burning out. Although plasmas do last a long time, eventually after so many years, the gasses start to slowly die down until they eventually burn out.

The plasma has additionally been proven to leave image burn INS while kept upon a certain picture for a long period of time. We often experienced this concern when I was employed at an https://vimeo.com/54064354 electronics retail store. Whenever the plasma TV is left sitting for hours displaying a motionless image such as a DVD menu for example, the image will ingrain itself in the screen, which means that whenever you try and watch something else, you will always be able to mildly notice the DVD menu imprint. I have seen this again and again.

LCD vs LED: Anytime you are considering an LCD vs LED, the primary difference relates to the method of backlighting they use. Keep in your mind that the LED television is actually an LCD. This is where the majority of people typically get puzzled. An LCD TV utilizes what's known as a cold cathode fluorescent lamp (ccfl), whereas an LED HDTV utilizes light emitting diodes. The LED TV uses carefully placed sensors to regulate the image getting transmitted. These particular sensors pick up on the 1's and 0's information getting sent and modify the coloration display, pixel by pixel. This helps the LED TV to take advantage of the amount of light more efficiently. This is what's recognized as local dimming. The LCD TV won't have this option.

This is the reason why the LED offers you deeper black levels, clearer color and a far more vivid image. With local dimming, you can watch high definition TV in any kind of lighting at virtually any position. This results in a more pleasant viewing experience. The LED television also happens to be less heavy and slimmer which once more make it easier to mount on your wall or set-up.

Basically, the LED television is definitely brand new technology that will only keep getting significantly more developed and offer even more benefits. Even though I don't believe the plasma is going to be entirely substituted by the Led television, I do think the LCD is nearing its end. Considering that an LED television is essentially an LCD, there is no need to continue manufacturing LCD only TVs. I believe that soon, all LCD TV sets will eventually be replaced by LED-LCD TVs.
