No matter the affordability, any good item is believed to satisfy the consumers’ wants. The televisions have many features and each cannot be the same with the other. Almost all the kinds of television in the market have both the pros and cons. When one needs to buy a TV or replace the old one, the thought of finding the best that would satisfy your want is the question that is always wondering in the mind. No one wants to get less than what he/she is paying for. When we talk about the LCD and the plasma TVs and the LED TVs it is very evident that the three uses different technologies in the processing of images. Each therefore is well endorsed with different features that make it unique in its own way. To be able to know the difference in the three it is very important that one knows how the three function. Knowledge is power and in one way or another it will influence the decisions that you make. Those with knowledge usually go for quality while those that lack the necessary knowledge goes for affordability.
The LED TVs with the light emitting diode. It uses the sane Liquid crystal display screen technology but with some crucial difference of the handful of backlight lamps that traditionally illuminate the LCD TVs which are replaced by a large number of tiny LED. Some LED TVs employ local dimming and the micro dimming.
How do the LCD panels work then? The panel is majorly composed of two layers of polarize material with liquid solution between them. When an electric current passes through that liquid, the crystals are caused to align so that light can pass through. Each crystal acts as a gate, either allowing the light to pass through them or blocking the light. After the light passes through the liquid it then passes through filter that filters color. The plasma on the other hand uses an extremely different process to form the images. It does not use any filter. The images on these TVs are created by ionized gas known as plasma thus the name. In summery it is wise to note that while it uses the ionized gas to form images, the other buses the filters to illuminate pixel on the main screen. With the difference mentioned above, we can be able to note the advantages and the disadvantages between the two.
The plasma has the following advantages. The ability to block light completely thus can produce a deep black compared to the LCDs. Secondly the plasma has the ability to have the strong color saturation. This means that they can be able to control the brightness of each color to produce a greater contrast, more real texture and richer colors than the LCD. The plasma also provides a wide viewing angle compared to the LCD. This is because with the LCD that depends on the filer; some lights tend to be cut out while the plasma DOES not rely on the filters thus the production of better and wider images. The plasma also has no blur motions. The draw backs on the plasma TV includes the burn in which is a process where images persist on the screen even when the image that created it is long gone. The plasma TVs also consumes a lot of energy as compared to the LCD. Therefore one would end up using a lot of electricity leading to higher bills. The plasma brightness still can’t match that of LED TV. The cost of the LCD and plasma is almost the same.
Given the dwindling availability of both the LCD and Plasma, an individual will probably go for LED. They are slim and energy sufficient.
