Forget LCD; Go for Plasma, Says Maker of Both

The LCD vs. Plasma debate has been a hot topic for geeks everywhere for the past few years with some extolling the greatness of the plasma, and other saying it would "burn out" before its time.

However, the tables have suddenly turned - well slightly - as the New York Times reports Panasonic, the consumer electronics company owned by Matsushita Electric Industrial and the world’s biggest seller of plasma TVs, has altered its "to each his or her own" stance. (It must be noted that the company sells a full line of popular LCD sets as well.)

Panasonic now says it believes that plasma technology is under unfair attack from competitors making “desperate attempts” to denigrate what it sees as plasma’s superiority, Bob Greenberg, Panasonic’s vice president for brand marketing is quoted as saying.

One of the main reasons we went for LCD is because plasma screens are prone to burn-in. (We like video games, and the burn-in factor on static images can a problem with plasmas -- even with pixel-shifting technology. This is one of the reasons why LCD was a better choice for us.) But LCDs do have a bit of an issue with angled viewing, although I have never experienced it myself (neither has my husband).

We're in the process of taking the plunge to purchase a flat panel tv and are collecting as much info as possible. Thanks for the posting. Any and all advice is helpful!

I have an LCD television (forty-plus inches -- I think it may be 42; I don't think it's fifty) and I love it. I didn't like the plasmas nearly as much (though they were cheaper, by comparison). Picture quality was inferior (imo) in the plasma screens that I saw. LCDs looked sharper and more vivid to me. But I'm married to a Geek (and he was solid in his choice of LCD over plasma). To each his own, indeed.
