Plasma vs LCD - Need help A.S.A.P.

Recommended Posts

I pretty much want one of these TVs and I really can't decide which one to get:

 

Plasma

or

LCD

 

I did my research and I can't tell which one is better. The plasma is $100 cheaper but I hear they don't have as long of life spans. I am really confused and am buying 1 or the other within the next 2 hours so I would REALLY appreciate any help given.

 

Thanks once again.

plasma contrast ratio: 10000:1

LCD contrast ratio: 1600:1

 

but the LCD has a little better resolution (although both res' suck)

 

:withstupid:

 

personally, i wouldn't touch either set and i'd save my money and buy a decent TV

Well for you how much does a decent TV cost? I'm not gonna spend $3k+ to watch tv.....

you should be able to find a decent NAME BRAND for around $1500-2k. I wouldn't recommend those either.

I thought 1920 x 1080 was full HD.

 

But anyways, my parents bought this TV and its basically amazing. Oh and LCD tv's have a much longer lifespan than plasmas, so its a better investment.
