ADVICE PLEASE: LCD TV V/S PLASMA TV




To My Fellow CD Members:

I'm in the market to upgrade from my picture tube TV to a flat/thin/small and petite TV as the picture tube TV of mine 32\" is a big headache while moving.

Has anybody had past experience in terms of a 32\" LCD or Plasma TV. I heard that the Plasma TV tends to burn out after a couple of years, is it true?.

Are all the LCD and Plasma TV's HDTV ready?.


What do you think, whether I should buy a LCD or a Plasma TV?.

What should I look for, what are good brands and where can I get a good deal on the same?.

Your info is highly appreciated.

Best Regards,

who would make you starve, if you don't.'"

Hi Shankaracharya,

I hv some decent experience with these items.

1. To decide between LCD /Plasma, first finalise the size. Generally, LCD is not available over 40" and if available, it is very expensive.

2. Plasma start in sizes over 40"

3. Burn out issue is the same between plasma and lcd - 60,000 hrs

4. There are a lot of other technical considerations, so it will be better if we meet or you can PM me your email, will give personal advice.

5. Also I can get you very good deals in canada on these stuff.

Rgds,

Hiren

Hi Hiren,

I am in a process of finalising on LCD/PLASMA/REAR PROJECTION or DLP TVs. Please guide me if you have done some research. Let's talk.

Regards,

VJ.

As I replied before, each individual case is different depending upon location of TV, family members, major use, life expectantcy, social status and last but not the least -budget.

I believe even S'karacharya has done a detaled study should be able to shed some of his knowledge.

The most common issues, I have already covered in the earlier post, for anything more specific, anyone can PM me.

All the best guys.

Hiren

LCD vs Plasma
If you are going to live in high rise building ( or around 7000 ft above sea level) than I would suggest you SHOULD NOT buy the Plasma TV as altitude does effect the performance and life span of Plasma TV.

And prey tell me what would be the average altitude of a 20th floor in high rise building in GTA?

Saying that we should have not have a plasma TV above the altitude of 7,000 ft is of no use if none of the high rise building in major cities in Canada are not above that level..............or all of them are usually above that level. It might be correct information but information of no value.

Hi Guys,

I am also on the lookout for the same.

when comparing the quality of the pictures, I cannot find the good quality in Plasma 40", when compared to the LCD.

I am looking out for the quality of the LCD of NEC-Opti Clear, or HP-19" computer monitor for $299.00 available in future shop.

Can anyone in this field give some info on TV availability of the above mentioned quality of a bigger size.

Thanks and Regards,

Well as Toronto is only 350 ft above sea level but it does not mean the whole Canada is around that level. The person did not say in his post that he is from Toronto so I thought it is worth to mention this info as CD is accessible from the places 15000 ft (or above) above sea level too.

Hi,

I have been doing some search on the net on the issue for a while and found the following sites to be useful.


http://www.flattvpeople.com/tutorials/lcd-vs-plasma.asp

http://www.audioholics.com/techtips/specsformats/displays_LCD_vs_Plasma3.html

http://www.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/lcdtv-plasmavslcd.shtml

I have also read some reviews of the different brands and Panasonic seems to be winning hands down in terms of picture and sound quality. Pioneer is no doubt the best but the price difference between the two is quite a bit (you may be able to buy Sony Dream DVD Wireless Home Theatre DAV-FX900W with this difference). Panasonic claims lifetime of 60,000 hours and looks very impressive. Its 50" model was on sale for 2499 during this boxing day sale at Future shop while their sister company Best Buy was selling same model for 2699. Here is the link to review of Panasonic Plasma.

http://www.consumersearch.com/www/electronics/plasma-tv/index.html

Also check out:
http://www.panasonic.ca and
https://vieraconcierge.ca/

I also found this link to provide by far the best in-depth review of the plasma..

http://www.plasmatvbuyingguide.com/plasmatvreviews/panasonic-th42px60u-review.html
(you can select other models/brands here too)

Panasonic is introducing new line-up of Plasma this Spring and the current crop of models will see further decline in price in coming weeks.
