post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about buying a new hdtv, and I dont know if I should go with an lcd or plazma. I think lcd's are better, but how much, is it worth the extra$$$?

to be honest lcd have better image quality as they have a better contrast ratio,also there is a chance to have an image "burnt " into the plasma screen where as lcd that can not happen

LCD's are NOT cheaper than Plasma TV's. Compare the prices of a 40" LCD HDTV vs a 40" Plasma HDTV. The LCD costs over $1000 more than the Plasma version.

lcd pixels switch slower than plasma, so there is the possibility of ghosting. i'm not sure how noticable it is (probably not at all), but i've read that it happens
It goes to eleven

Plasma is prone to burning easily. It does have the benifit of a higher picture quality. But I guess it really comes down to what your going to be doing with the tv. Movies and other video media would be good for Plasma. Gaming is a no no for plasma, better to go witht the lcd. So you decide.

"LCD's are NOT cheaper than Plasma TV's. Compare the prices of a 40" LCD HDTV vs a 40" Plasma HDTV. The LCD costs over $1000 more than the Plasma version."

I probaly typed it wrong.

Wow, that is a lot of post in like 10mins.
