When purchasing a TV, many consumers sometimes do not think about the technical component of the device. Most buyers are only interested in a set of available functions - Smart TV, 3D TV, a variety of signal receivers, the ability to connect additional devices via HDMI and USB interfaces. Depending on the technology of production, TV panels are divided into two categories - plasma and LCD. Moreover, among the LCD panels there are both LCD TVs (CCFL) and Led LCD. But which is better: plasma or LED TV?
There is no definite answer to this question, since each technology has its pros and cons. But it is worth mentioning right away that classic LCD panels made using CCFL LCD technology are no longer on sale. Plasma TV production has also been suspended, as LED panels have won in the war of two technologies. However, in the future, they will also face the fate of plasma, because the new OLED technology, which is actively used on smartphones, will soon occupy a large part of the TV panel market.
What is a plasma TV for?
What is the advantage of plasma over LED-panel? In fact, the main advantage of plasma is that the image on TVs created with this technology is brighter and more saturated. Plasma contains true blacks, not "gray" like LCDs. Plus, plasma TVs have wide viewing angles and high image contrast. But like any other device, the "plasma" has a number of disadvantages, which lie in high power consumption and shorter service life. On top of that, there are no Plasma TVs with a diagonal of less than 32 inches.
As a rule, plasma TVs are purchased mainly for watching movies. With the same diagonal, plasma TVs are cheaper than LCD panels, but it is rather difficult to find them on the market, since production has been suspended.
LCD panel - the best TV for gaming
Most buyers of LCD panels use them primarily as a Smart TV and computer screen. After all, in fact, PC monitors are manufactured using the same technology. Yes, undoubtedly, the cost of LCD is higher than that of plasma, but for a large amount the user gets a huge number of advantages: bright screen, excellent color reproduction, high contrast and clarity. In addition, LCD panels are smaller and thinner than plasma TVs. For example, Sharp has already put into serial production a 1 cm thick TV. The only drawback of the panels produced using this technology is the high price.
What to choose: plasma or LED? Given the development of modern technologies, preference should be given to LED panels, because they are the future. It is quite simple to determine by what technology the TV is produced: in the off state, the plasma screen is gray, and the LCD panel, regardless of the backlight technology, is black. [twenty].
