Well I want to by 40-45'' tv full HD that s all I know. Now what is better? I have no idea. Some say plasma some say lcd .So I'm gonna do a poll to make my decision.
DLP? never heard of that before what's that?
Fran;13579050 said:DLP is a type of HD-technology created by Texas Instruments... you've probably seen it advertised at the theater. Most theaters are switching to DLP projections, pretty crisp pictures.
The technology uses millions of tiny mirrors to project the picture. Never has image burning (good for games you play and TV stations) and has a great picture that doesn't really get crappy the bigger the TV you have.
Superior image, true black capability, minimal video artifacts, no burn in and when the lamp starts to go, just pop a new one in and BOOM!....new TV. Plasma screens eventually lose the captured gas in the cells behind the screen and can't really be repaired. Also, drop a plasma screen and you've got yourself a disposable TV that you have to replace. LCD, lots of motion trail artifacts and no way to get a true black.
Just make sure you get a 1080p set with an internal HD tuner and plenty of connection options, including HDMI. I highly recommend Samsung.
Not sure I understand your question.
you now how you can see a plasma tv on the side, as well as an LCD?
well my friend has a DLP TV and of course every time i come over i am stuck with the chair thats on the far side. so i can't see anything on the screen.
so my question was do any DLP tvs have it so it has a better viewing angle? and if they do what DLP is the best for a great Viewing angle?
Ahhh. You're talking about viewing angle. Some sets are better than others. With DLP and LCD technology, there will always be a point of lessening visual return as you move further from the center most point of the viewing spectrum. But, if you're sitting that far over to the side of the TV, what did you expect to be able to see, anyway?
I'm saving up for a Samsung or Sony LCD. From what I hear, although the plasmas have greater color vibrancy, like they'll say "the blacks are blacker and the reds are redder", supposedly they have the tendency to burn images into the screen.
Not to mention just about every LCD I've come across has been much more affordable than the plasmas.
