Now the old Cathode Ray Tube TVs are gone, you have three options to choose from; Plasma, LCD & LED. But which one is right for you? Below is a short explanation of the pros & cons of each.
Pros: Plasma Televisions are the cheapest option on the list, being easy to manufacture than the other two. Because of the gas inside, they tend to give the best contrast and deeper blacks, making them good for movies. But the plasma really comes into consideration if you’re buying a large TV for sports, as the motion on a Plasma flows more smoothly than LCD based TVs.
Cons: Plasma TVs are no-where near as energy efficient as their LCD cousins, using a lot more electricity and generating more heat. They also have a glass panel screen, making them a lot thicker and also quite heavy in comparison.
Pros: Thinner, lighter and uses less energy than a Plasma TV, and generally much cheaper than an LED TV.
Cons: The picture is not as “smooth” as a Plasma TV, and the colour isn’t as vibrant as an LED TV.
Pros: Generally thinner than both LCD and Plasma TVs, modern LED televisions have local dimming capability which can rival even Plasma TVs when it comes to contrast. More energy efficient than the other two, they also have more vibrant colours, which are also more “true” to what you’re watching.
Cons: LED TVs are the most expensive, and the motion flow is still behind the Plasma TV
