Home Theater Steamboat Springs. Which one is better, plasma or LCD? For the technical answer, do a search, and you will get more information than you will ever want to read. Here is a short answer.
Plasma: They have a better viewing angle, and are usually cheaper than LCD for the same size. They don’t blur action and sports content. And they have better contrast and display deeper blacks.
LCD: Their screens don’t reflect as much, so they perform better in bright rooms. The screen is brighter, and they don’t use as much power as plasma.
Which is better? The one that performs best in your setting. Most likely, that will mean that an LCD is better for a bright room and plasma is better for a light controlled room.
