Plasma TVs are superior to LCD TVs in all aspects. A plasma TV actually brings out deeper, more realistic colors than an LCD, a phenomena that I have personally experienced and witnessed. Moreover, plamsa TVs are better for watching movies and are far superior to an LCD TV in watching close-up to the TV. Plasmas also are more durable and do not lose their color depth as quickly as an LCD TV.
In today's world were energy consumption has really started to matter, an LCD T.V .is a better choice. Plasma T.V.s use up much more energy. They tend to have a brighter, bolder and wider viewing angle, but the difference is not notable enough to waste the energy it would take to power the T.V..
