That’s a question with an “it depends” sort of answer, and one that has spurred endless debate.
Here are a few things you should consider as you decide between a plasma or LCD set:
Buy a plasma if:
- Your TV room is bright or if you watch a lot of fast-paced sports. Plasma’s offer a clearer picture during high-motion sequences, and its more easily viewed from a variety of angles.
Buy an LCD if:
- You want to use less energy than a plasma uses. Both plasma’s and LCD’s are energy hogs, but LCD’s use substantially less energy than plasma’s.
- Your home sits at a high altitude. Check with the manufacturer of any plasma TV you intend to use at an altitude of greater than 5,000 feet before you buy one, to make sure it’s guaranteed to work.
