LCD TVs Better Than Plasma TVs?

May 20th, 2007 · 1 Comment

I had written earlier about Plasma TVs, and thought maybe the decision was easy to make in favor of Plasma TVs, but now I am in doubt again. I read a whole bunch of LCD TV reviews today and they do seem to have their own advantages vis-a-vis Plasma TVs.

Here’s a few advantages LCD TVs have over their Plasma counterparts – they are lighter, brighter, have 1080p resolution, have less glare, and are versatile for a whole format of digital signals. However, they suffer from a low viewing angle and lesser black levels.

However, TVs like the Sharp Aquos above reduce these differences even more. This Sharp AQUOS LC-52D62U LCD TV, for example, has a native 2000:1 contrast ratio and a dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000:1. Its Multi-Pixel technology and advanced black TFT panel further reduce the advantage of Plasma TVs. So what’s it gonna be, a Panasonic Plasma or a Sharp LCD? The price of the LCD TVs alone makes me tend to lean their way. Let me see if I can find a good deal on either brand.
