Cheap Lcd Tv

LCD or Plasma, which one?

We always get asked the question "what television should i buy an lcd or plasma?" There are many things that you need to take into consideration when making your choice and we hope that this article will make it easier for you to decide.

At a first glance Lcd tv's and plasmas look the same. They are nice, slim and stylish. They both have flat screen panels and both offer wide screen technology. There are however a few points that you will need to consider and a few Key differences between the two.

Lets have a look at some of the advantages of lcd tv's and plasma tv's and why they have taken over traditional tv sets.

  • Lcd tv's and plasma tv's look good-The style and design of these look great, whether turned on or off. They are easily wall mounted or fitted snug against the side of your living room.-this may not be the biggest concern however it is defiantly worth noting
  • Compact design- The days of using up a whole table for a crt monitor are now over. With the introduction of lcd monitors it has cleaned up offices and desk spaces at home.
  • clear viewing- One of the key differences from a lcd/plasma and crt (normal tv) is the pixels that are available. Lcd tv's and plasmas have more pixles per a square inch compared to a normal crt. With more pixles you can enjoy the magical experience of crystal clear viewing

The differences between a lcd and plasma

LCD
LCD stands for liquid crystal display. Its if formed of hundreds of thousands of small lcd pixels that sit behind the tv screen. These pixels are charged through a fluorescent white backlight that sits behind the pixels. The light charges the pixels by sending an electric current and determines what colour should be shown, and the millions of tiny light variations make up the image that you see on your TV.

Plasma
Plasma screens are different to lcd technology. Plasma screens use the technology of xenon and neon gas which fills thousands of tiny chambers. Plasma screens are actually made up of 2 screens of glass and the xenon and neon gas is placed between both of the screens. Behind the tiny chambers that are filled by the gas there are a series of red, blue and green phosphors.When electricity hits the plasma chambers, they emit invisible UV light, which then hits one of the coloured phosphors. This creates a visible image on the screen.

LCD or Plasma?
So now you know the difference in technology used. Which one is right for you?

  • Plasma tv's can reach an incredible 71 inches in screen size where as lcd tv's reach about 46 inches.
  • Plasma tv's are heavier then lcd tvs and lcd tvs come slightly thinner
  • LCD usually has a slightly clearer picture in smaller models and a higher resolution
  • lcd tv's usually have a longer lifespan then a plasma as its not operated by gas which will need refilling
  • Lcd tv's use less energy then plasma tv's

The decision is yours. If you are after a larger screen then Plasma is the one for you. If you can live with a screen size of up to 46 inches then i would personally recommend the lcd. Not only will you get a clearer picture/thinner design but you will also help the environment with energy saving equipment.
