Difference between LED TV and Plama TV - Page 4

Just go into a Best Buy or other store with a lot of TVs and look at all of them. Decide for yourself which one you like because every type of TV has it's own pros as well it's own cons.

One thing though, don't worry about screen burn in with Plasmas anymore, it's pretty much non-existent anymore. The only thing you will likely see is image retention which is where the image will be visible on a lit up, black screen for a few minutes after the picture is gone. When there is other stuff going on you shouldn't see this at all.

Hope this helps, and if you want my vote, buy a Plasma.

Going into a store is stupid as all of them are uncalibrated and are not tested using the same measures. Not to mention the store would calibrate one TV with the highest profit margin to look better than the others etc...

Also for Average Joe customer, IR in plasmas is an issue. Image retention is not the same as burn-in.

And how much does that "not bad" cost, at... lets say just 47" ? And how much does a "very good" 3D plasma? There you have it.

You mean a couple of years ago? Or in entry level budget craps from LG or Samsung?
Bet you did not use ANY Panasonic PDP plasma from the last 2-3 years. They dont have any IR problem, that you could trigger while in normal use. You have to force a still picture for hours, maybe a day, to get a ghost, wich also can be washed away quickly.

If you watch tv/movies for more than 5 hours a day, get the LED because its the most energy efficient.

You spend $X more, to have an energy efficient LED TV, instead of an energy efficient plasma.
Did you ever calculated, how much decades you need to watch that LED TV, to save this X dollars back, on the electicity bill?

Gaming is a large problem for top-end 2008-2010 series plasmas

That topic is about 2008-2009 models. We have now 2010 and 11 models. Not the same, since these are already PDP ones. And if you read it on, the situation was back then also not that tragedic, like the hysteric overreaction of the first post.

Hi All,
How often do you have to change the bulb in a plasma, and how often do you change the leds? Service life is an issue and LCD screens still do not have the black level that a plasma has, but it does have longevity. Neither is "better" at all things so it depends on what the end user os looking for. BTW I have a 42" LCD and it is 2 years old and it had a great picture when I got it and it still has a great picture today.

Do you like to watch a lot of movies? Yes? Plasma

Do you like to watch a lot of tv or play console games? Yes? LCD

Are you a Hippy with money? Yes? LED

Do you spend too much time in front of a tv? Yes? Then buy whatever. You're wasting time in front of the tv and not on your OC.
