Plasma vs LCD

What do you folks think? Which is better, not technically because that really doesn’t matter and whether I can see a pimple on a face in a crowd at football doesn’t mean it is better. What I want to know is what/why do you think one looks best in your lounge room at home.

I have both and I have to say for the best picture I think plasma is the go. LCDs for me seem a bit ‘computery (??)’ the picture contrast just isn’t right, where the Plasma (mine’s a fairly expensive Fujitsu model) has great colour and resolution (pic quality not just pixels) and is perfectly fine day or night. People say LCD is better for daytime viewing but I have absolutely no problems with the plasma, and it’s facing a window.

I have just read this , I guess, advertising spiel from Panasonic and pretty much have to agree about the pic quality facts. They say that an independant survey has about 70% of viewers prefering plasma in Australia. I do admit I only have HD free to air signals (that’s up to 1080i) and DVD, no HDdvd or Blueray (and not interested in them either) but I really only watch free to air and not much else.

    I’ve never really thought about it or realized there was a difference 😛 I love how thin LCD screens can be 🙂 It was a huge step going from a bulky screen to an LCD/Plasma… lol I’m so off to wikipedia.

    Ok, so now realizing the differences I think LCD’s are far better due to the fact that they don’t burn, they run on virtually 0 energy and they produce crystal clear images.

    I have two laptops with LCD screens and a 2nd SAMPO monitor with a plasma screen. I can’t look at the plasma screen for more than an hour because my eyes start to sting, this is not the case with either plasma screens. This is probably something to do with the refresh rates and how the images are displayed.

    The plasma screen can burn, which is a bad point as I use it for messaging so the windows hardly change position.

    I don’t know about you, but I find screen savers extremely irritating. especially with this web 2.0. You’re sitting there watching a lovely film on ‘stage 6’ when suddenly boom your screen savers loading up.

    I had no idea there were Plasma PC screens.
    i was talking about TVs and although specs may say LCD is better in some things, I have found for watching TV, plasma is much, much nicer. And burn in doesn’t normally happen even the TV station logos aren’t bright enough to do this.
    Watching TV and using a PC is a hugely different thing I think.
    Refresh rates – plasma is almost like CRT screens – instant.
