Difference of LCD, LED and Plasma TVs

LCD refers to liquid crystal display, which needs a back-light was first used since the early 1970s. The LCD TV screen is characterized by its rich colors and high contrast. However, its capability of contrast is not as good in quality as the Plasma TV screens which exceeds it in this characteristic. LCD TV’s seem to perform better in places where the quality of light is good due to its high contrast. When it comes to the angle of view, the viewer can watch the LCD TV with clarity at 120-degree angle, but the Plasma TV is far superior.

The longevity of the LCD TV is expected to be 100.000 hours of operation. The Plasma TV or Plasma Display Panel is called so because its pixels depend on plasma cells or fluorescent lamps. The contrast of Plasma TV is of high quality, and it can produce more than 16 million colors, which makes it the best as far as the purity of colors. Among other things, the Plasma TV can be watched from an 180 degree and compared to LCD TV; it can be watched even in dark areas or places where the light quality is not efficient. On the LED TV, it can be considered as a different type of LCD TV that has been developed. The LED seems to perform much better than the LCD TV since it has a higher contrast and colors.

One of the great advantages of the LED TV is that it can save more than 20 percent of energy compared to the LCD TV. To summarize the advantages of the LCD, the LED, and the Plasma, it can be said that the Plasma TV has currently the best value in terms of its technology in the market. The quality of its contrast and its colors is far more superior. The Plasma TV has excellent response when watching high definition movies, football games, or clips that are fast or have lots of movements. Also, the Plasma TV can be viewed from every angle and its price seems to be economical compared to its value. The LCD TV is more satisfactory in open places where the quality of light is high, but it cannot be watched from every angle. The LED TV is characterized with fluorescent lumps on the sides, and it is super thin and compact, which gives it the advantage of being installed anywhere, but unfortunately like the LCD, it has limited angle view.
