Big question

by JamesRL In reply to LCD or Plasma or TFTor Pr ...

There are good and bad in all of these technologies. Generally you get what you pay for.

LCD is winning the low to mid priced end of the spectrum. Definately on the computer monitor end, Plasma is rare and projectors are only used for large audiences.

On the high end large screen TV end, initially Plasma was seen as the best, but now the tables are turning. Some manufacturers still say plasma is better, but LCD is now competitive.

Of course, a bad plasma is not as good as a good LCD and vice versa.

LCD uses less power and should last longer.

I suggest googling some of the home theatre sites.

projectors are nice but i would only use one for watching a movie and keep a non projector device on the side for tv, computing, or gaming. mainly because you can burn out the bulbs on the projectors and they aren't cheap
