Plasma TV's Or LCD's - Which One Would Be A Better Buy?

Nov 21st 2012 at 11:13 PM

The world seems to be waxing lyrical about the magic of Plasma as well as LCD TV's. There's nothing like celebrating beauty in all its external manifestations, right? Now you too intend to be a part of this celebration. But making a choice between these two stalwarts is no mean feat. You sure are bombarded with a whole lot of information about them, but it's loaded with cryptic terminology that only the experts can seem to comprehend. Non-plussed, your quest for that perfect television set seems to have reached a dead end. Well, it's rather early to jettison those ostensibly grand plans of getting that absolutely divine TV that optimizes viewing pleasure. Read on, and you'll soon figure out for yourself -Plasma TV's or LCD's- which one would be a better buy?

Get the one that suits you the best

In terms of the technology that drives the two televisions, there isn't much to choose from. Their cutting-edge design and innovation has the power to impact all things alive and inanimate. However, there are a few minor differences that'll help you make the right choice:

* Plasma TV's: There's no doubt about the fact that Plasma TV's look simply wondrous. But there's more to them than the proverbial pretty face. Their exceptionally good color reception and better contrast is certainly a shot in the arm. Thanks to the presence of a lighting quick processor, you have super-smooth images that grace your TV screen. The three dimensional look gets accentuated with a myriad of vivid, vibrant colors. With high picture quality, a Plasma TV promises a truly out-of-the-world experience. But all this eulogizing is sure to get tarnished just a wee bit when you come face-to-face with a few drawbacks that the Plasma television suffers from. These hi-end TV's have a shorter life span as compared to their LCD counterparts. There have been complaints of burn out's ( and you thought that it was just a sporting syndrome) as well as ghosting. The latter, however, can be fixed by the activation of a screen saver. The long and the short of it is that if you intend to get a new television every 4-5 years, then you better bring home a Plasma TV, ASAP.

* LCD TV's: LCD televisions are indeed signposts of innovation and advancement. Now how often have we heard that? But know what, its 100% true. The amazing resolution, impeccable color reproduction and incredibly low power requirement, has sparked off an animated chatter about these new-age marvels. The sharper pictures make for very interesting viewing, but you may be slightly disappointed in the contrast department. The adage 'till death do us apart' certainly holds good in case of LCD televisions, as they are sure to be with you for a fairly long time.

So you see, they're different, but not exactly polar opposites. To put things in a somewhat nursery way, lets say that if you're a sports fanatic, then get yourself a Plasma TV, as it will showcase all those movements perfectly. But in case you're the couch potato variety that cannot get enough of those DVD's and movies, then there's nothing to beat the LCD television. So now you know, Plasma TV's or LCD's: which one is a better buy?
