The choice between an LCD and a plasma TV for many people is a leap in the dark. The techniques appear identical, the seller does not make you much wiser and read the data as easily as the manual in Polish. An attempt to see through the forest again some trees.


LCD screens have been known by the computer. For a few years, almost no conventional cathode ray tubes used there. To advantages of ease of use, more efficient use of space, quality and rational use of energy are the "flat" LCD displays a worthy successor. In the early LCD screens had a very soft surface, and was only view the image as it was right in front of the screen. Was that not the case, the colors were severely deformed and one usually saw nothing. Since the TFT technology has changed all that: the scenes now have a hard front and from almost 180 ° view sharply.
Plasma screens are previously unknown to the general public. They are larger than traditional LCD screens. They work with small bubbles plasma, which is not, as most people think, solve "flow" behind the screen. Who looks very close'll see that they're all neatly in place, in rows, alternating the three primary colors. These are heated to very high temperatures and so they light up. This is why a plasma TV, especially the top, sometimes can be very hot. This is not a defect, but the normal operation of the device. Also, the device at startup and shutdown, a "clicking" sound. This is perfectly normal and is caused by temperature differences. The device has been provided, snitching is even a built-in security to cover the potential expansion of some parts.

Differences in image quality

In general, plasma is preferable when it comes to image quality. This has mainly to do with the state of the technology at this time: all characteristics is done continuously on research and development, but at the moment plasma is better in all respects. An overview:
With regard to the resolution, it is so that plasma generally has a higher resolution, but plasma screens are also larger. So this is not really a benefit.
Regarding brightness, plasma has a distinct advantage: there are screens available with a ratio of 1: 6000 to 1: 10000 to 1 even 15000. The screen brightness is very important: it determines how "far" black and white are set on your screen. the higher the ratio, the better: the black is blacker and all the colors are vibrant.
With regard to the light output, there is also an advantage for plasma displays. The downside of this feature is that some brands define it differently. It is also less decisive for the quality of the screen. The only way is to go to the store and just looking at the picture.

I now choose LCD or plasma?

Your choice depends mainly on your own preferences.
Do you want a big screen, then you might get better plasma. Plasma screens in this segment usually less expensive than LCD screens. Do you want a smaller screen, you are advised an LCD screen, which are cheaper in this segment. Incidentally, there are almost no plasma screens smaller than 90 cm diagonally.
The only disadvantage of plasma is that it is something "less long" lasting, especially the background exposure. Do not worry, the screen ensures you anyway YEARS viewing pleasure, but when it comes to look 20 to 30 years of TV, you may get a better LCD.
A good advice: do not buy a TV on paper !!!! In leaflets are your ears skipped with technical data. Nothing could be trusted as good as a face 2 face confrontation with your future TV.
Do not be enchanted by high resolution data. The resolution is presented as the key to a sharp image, but this is all wrong. A screen with a very low resolution can sometimes generate better and sharper image than a screen with a high resolution. This is because all image sources have their own resolution. For a program to view the cable, you'll need about 600 pixels horizontally, so why do extra cost to have 1500 instead of 1200 pixels horizontally? DVD and blue ray obviously have a higher resolution.
Much more important than the resolution are the scalers: small programs that transform into your TV's resolution. If they are correct, you will have a sharp image at any resolution. These are bad, then you have a hazy and blurry images, even at very high resolutions. Scalers, however, are not mentioned in leaflets, in order to "taste" you should go see your dealership this.
One last tip is do not be tempted into an emotional purchase. After all ... it's just a TV Thank you!
