Plasma vs. LCD vs. LED-LCD

A lot of people want to know the difference between Plasma, LCD and LED-LCD HDTV’s as well as which one is better than the other. The bottom line is that LED-LCD televisions are the newest technology and are superior to Plasmas and LCD’s in virtually every way. Yes, they are slightly more expansive, but they are worth it if you can afford it. Below is a chart where I scored all three of these technologies with 3-points for best performing and 1-point for lease performing. The total scores speak for themselves.

Trying to figure out if Plasma’s are better that LCD’s or vice versa is slightly more difficult. It really depends on what you will be using the TV for. Some time ago I have written an article for eHow on this subject and you are welcome to read it. Looking at the chart will also provide some information.
