What Is The Difference Between Plasma And LCD TVs?
Have you ever asked yourself, "What is the difference between plasma and LCD TVs?" If you are in the market to buy a new TV, you may find yourself trying to decide between any of the plasma TVs on the market and the many LCD TVs. Knowing the difference between plasma TVs and LCD TVs will help you make your decision.
Most men enjoy knowing how things work, so here’s how plasma TVs operate. Plasma TVs create a picture by using cells which contain gas plasma. These cells are electrically charged, and it is these electrical charges that form the TV picture. Because plasma TVs use electrically charged gas plasma cells, the contrast part of the TV picture is better than that of LCD TVs. Further, plasma TVs provide a color image that is brighter than that of LCD TVs. Colors and hues are more vivid as a result of this, making it easier to distinguish between similar colors when watching your favorite sports team.
Those are the advantages of plasma TVs. The disadvantage of plasma TVs is that they are heavier than LCD TVs. The location of plasma TVs in homes should be chosen carefully, because once situated, they are harder to move than LCD TVs. So, if your spouse or significant other is the one making the decision as to where to put the set, you might want to gently urge that person to make sure of the decision, because that’s most likely where it will stay once it is placed.
LCD TVs are different from plasma TVs in that they have a higher picture resolution. LCD TVs use a liquid crystal display technique that results in more pixels being generated. The more pixels there are, the sharper the image will be, and the easier it will be to follow the action on whatever event you are watching.
LCD TVs also require less energy to operate than plasma TVs. This can help you save on your power bill. If you pay the bill, that might not matter to you, but if someone else pays the bill, and you have your heart set on an LCD TV, that can be a point in your favor.
LCD TVs are also lighter than plasma TVs. If a location is chosen that proves not to be the best spot, then it is easier to lift and move LCD TVs. So, if your spouse or significant other has a change of mind, you won’t have to worry about the possibility of injury when moving the TV one more time.
