Listed below is the difference between the two and what you need to look for when shopping, to get the best shopping deal on your next HD TV.


LCD TVs

 

* LCD stands for “liquid crystal display;” a technology often used with computers.

* LCD screens tend to have a lot less glare.

* LCD TVs have a very low energy consumption rate.

* LCDs are much less likely to experience “burn in” when a picture or channel logo is left on the screen for too long.

* LCD screen TVs have a slightly lower picture quality than plasma TVs.

* Contrast between platinum white is not as pronounced on LCD TVs as it is on regular TVs.

 

Plasma TVs

* Plasma TVs display a starker contrast between colors.

* Plasma TVs are more susceptible to burn in if you leave a picture on them for too long.

* Plasma TVs tend to have a shorter lifespan than LCD TVs.
