How LCD, LED, and Plasma TVs Are Different?

Do you know television that has become an integral part of human life was the result of many individuals during the 19th and 20th centuries, but the first electronic television was developed by a 21-year-old person named Philo Taylor Farnsworth? What is more surprising about the invention of the television is that the inventor did not have electricity supply in his own home until he was 14.

When introduced, buying it was not a bit difficult because people had not many options, but with time, this has become the most competitive industry and when people go to a television store, they see so many options that they often get confused. Today, a great variety is available in television, as LED, LCD, or Plasma and many companies manufacture them, claiming their products to be the best option available in the market.

When you look from some distance, LCD, LED, and Plasma, almost all look alike because they all are flat and slim. However, they are different. So, do not make your decision based on their looks but based on their set of advantages and disadvantages. This is possible only if you know the difference amongst them.

In order to help you make the right choice amongst the LCD, LED, and Plasma, I am going to let you know some differences in these three television types. They will do great help to you in making your choice

LCD Television

LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display. This has become the most common display type these days. The LCD screen is at the front of a fluorescent backlight display and the television shows the image when the light falls on the LCD screen from behind the screen.

The best thing about this television type is its price that is very much affordable for almost everybody. This provides you better picture quality and allows you to watch them in different sizes with different resolutions. It creates relatively lower electromagnetic, magnetic, and electric fields than CRTs. Moreover, it consumes almost 3 times less power than comparable CRT. However, it has some disadvantages as well. The major disadvantage is it cannot give you a true black color experience. The other disadvantages of it are higher latency and motion delays. Individual pixels may burn out and result in black or white dots on the screen. This is possible to be fixed only by the replacement of whole screen.

LED Television

LED stands for Light Emitting Diodes. These are also a kind of LCD per se. The aspect that differentiates these two is the light behind the screen. In LCDs, fluorescent lamp is used behind the screen while in LEDs, small LED bulbs for it. The other things are almost the same but some features change because of the use of LEDs. LED televisions are power efficient and slimmer. They offer a wider viewing angle around 175 degrees, allowing you a quality picture experience. The best thing is you will get a great viewing experience even when you are watching from a corner. Moreover, they are able to show you a real black experience. Screen glare is not a problem with it. However, when you compare their price with the price of LCDs, you find these to be costly than them.

Plasma TV-

Plasma and LCD televisions are almost the same having several common features. In both of these, fluorescent bulbs are used behind the screens. Both are flat and thin. Both allow you to watch television content in different sizes with different resolutions. However, picture quality is better and more natural than that of an LCD TV. This gives you great natural black experience. However, it is less energy efficient and produces more heat. It is not as bright as LCD TVs, and it performs better in a darkened room. This does not perform well at high altitudes. This may burn-in static images. However, this condition has much improved since the use of pixel orbiting and some other related technologies.

Now, the question is which one is the best for you.

Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. As you are going to buy for your own use, this would be better for you to decide which one you should take because every individual has his own taste. However, if you want to know from me, I would say if the budget does not matter for you then LED TVs would be the best choice for you. They will provide you great television watching experience. If you want to use this television for keeping eyes on people working in your organization, even then this can be a great choice for you. On the other hand, if your budget is limited then you can think of LCD or Plasma. If you want to monitor the security of your home or office along with watching television shows, then LCD television would be great choice for you. If you want to have a home theater experience, where you can control the ambient light and make it dark, this will be the right choice for you.

Considering the above-mentioned content will do a great help. However, it would be nice idea to do a comprehensive comparison regarding the features of televisions you see.
