Led is more energy freindly and i think has a better pic, plasma, well they are cheaper, old tech, and alot heavier. Just depending on ur budget, prefs. If you looking to buy, go to bestbuy and chk soe out. Some peep say there is a burn on plasma, but those days are over. I'd go with LED, but thats just me.

Plasmas are like radiators. I stood a couple meters from one and could still feel the heat.

You just went against what you said in that they are evenly matched...

I'd go LED

Plasma and LED are not exactly competing techs.

LED is a backlighting technology for LCD panels, Plasma is another panel type.

It depends what your uses are. LED LCDs are getting increasingly better, but plasmas have fantastic picture quality for films (black levels are still awesome)

It would help if you say a budget, preferred screen size and intended uses

Plasma should be cheaper though. I have a 50" one. Love it. Does get warm though for sure. It's safe though so nothing to worry. Burn is nothing I've seen yet. Ghosting I have seen. Even if the image has been up for 3 hours it still only ghosts and doesn't burn in. The TV has anti-ghosting settings so I use those and it goes away. It's all good.

It's an LG at 1080p. Got it for $500. And I love it!! But if money is not an issue get and LED TV. They are better in just about every way.

Gees, bad bad bad bad advice.

LED TVs (LCD TV with LED backlighting) use less energy and less likely to have IR (image retention problems). They also run cooler.

Plasmas, when comparing models in the same price segments and intention, are better quality picture quality wise, but run hotter, some still have image retention problems (image retention is not the same as burned-in pictures of plasmas in the past but is often confused for it) and while plasmas typically have better input lag, console gaming is often the biggest problem for palsmas in terms of IR. The plasmas acts as both the panel and 'backlight' thus there are no backlights in a plasma TV.

Summed up: If you are not going to console game and want the best picture quality for movies while not minding the extra heat and running cost electricity wise, Plasma

Otherwise, looks for reviews on (CCFL) LCD / LED LCD TVs as there is no inherit difference in picture quality between them. The only difference is the backlight. The panel and firmware matters far more.

Power consupmtion is an old thread, Plasmas nowadays dont use so much power either. My panasonic 42" uses some 120W, while an LCD in this size also does around 100W. Not that big difference, like 5 years ago. Look for PDP ones, the panel technology is licensed from the Pioneer KURO's there.

BUT, and this is the big point. there is NO LCD on the market yet, wich could compete with the picture quality of a plasma, when you are watching TV/Films/Sport etc.

LCD was never meant do display moving picture, they just try to adapt it, where Plasma was always meant to watch movies on it. Moving objects will never be so smooth, flicker free, and artifact free on an LCD. And then, there are the colors. Not much to say, a calibrated plasma will eat any LCD for breakfast.

LED ist just a backlighting type for LCD's. And a budget EdgeLED is even worse than an old CCFL backlit LCD, in terms of picture quality. Full led, with local dimming is a good backlighting, but picture quality will never get to a plasma, even with this. And why would you buy a fullLED LCD at 2x-3x price, as a Plasma? Nonsense.
