Plasma vs LCD vs LED HDTVs: Which one?

Updated on September 27, 2011

The debate over plasma vs lcd vs led TVs has been going for ages. This hub page will attempt to simplify the technical explanations that appear in most articles that research the differences between the three. Before you purchase a TV, you first have to identify your needs and limits. By knowing this, you will make the purchasing process much, much easier.

Let me first explain the plasma TV. a Plasma TV is best suited for fast paced motion pictures such as sports, action movies, and video games. Therefore, if you are a video game junkie or a passionate sports fan then you would definitely want to go for a Plasma TV. This, however, is not the only reason why you may want you to have a plasma TV at home. Plasma TVs are known to also have better size-to-price ratios, as opposed to LCD and LED TVs. Therefore, the larger your proposed the TV size, the better it is to have a look at a plasma TV. However, there are some limits that comes with this TV type. For example, the TV works best in low-light conditions. If you place it in a bright area then you will notice light glares on your TV screen. This is when the LCD and LED TVs come in.

LED and LCD TVs are better suited for bright-light conditions, hence why you see them all over in public areas like airports and bus terminals. LED and LCD TVs are better suited for static images. For example, if you need a TV for computer or laptop projections then you would definitely want to have a look at a LED or LCD TV. In general, LCD and LED TVs also consume less electricity than a plasma TV would. They also have a greater life span, however, this point is pretty much redundant if you are planning to change your TV model once every few years.

This is pretty much the gist of the TV differences. With the upcoming 3D models, it will be interesting to see how the market changes. What are your thoughts?
