Nothing beats a Panasonic Plasma for picture quality
5 Star Review   By member spiralsun1 - Mar 26, 2008   

Strengths: depth of color, and depth of contrast / blacks. 3-d "window effect" with hi quality HD films -- feels like you are there. Viewing angle is part of this -- can view from any angle. Fast response time.

Weakness: Can burn-in images if static image left on for days. Not really a big problem with newer-generation units (no more than the old CRT screens).

Probably the only reason to go with LCD is if you have an exceptionally bright room, or play video games all the time where there is a static frame or image on the screen all the time. On the other hand, the faster response times of plasma makes them better for games that reqire fast action. LCD's are brighter because they have one (usually flourescent) light lighting up the whole screen. That is a disadvantage though because the lighting is less even and it tends to make the screen look flat and pictures lose 3-d quality. Also, the lighter blacks on LCD's and the changing color and image quality at different angles makes the pictures less real to the eye and they lose the famous plasma 3-d "window effect". This is usually more difficult to see with the type of images they play in stores, but really noticeable with true HD programming. Plasma wins hands-down for image quality. With plasma, you feel like you are looking out a window. Looks real.

WHAT A PICTURE
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Excelent picture quality, with ease of remote options.

Weakness: Built in speakers leave a lot to be desired, not what you would expect from a HD TV of this price.

Shopping between a LCD and a Plasma HD TV, after a few weeks of compairing each format, I just gave up and went to a retail store which had them all on display, the largest difference I could see was what the salesman showed me, when watching a football game, on the LCD screen it seemed to leave a small shadow following the runner, and no shadow on the Plasma, so I purchased the Plasma, now I am very happy with it, I have also added a Blu-ray DVD player, and a Bose Cinemat System and the audio is now very good, so overall I would recommend this to my family and friends. It came with a one year warranty so I added another 3 years, to give me 4 years full coverage with in home service, which I would suggest that everyone purchase, I have been told that repairs on either LCD or Plasma can be very expensive, hope I never find out, even with the full extended warrant.

Professionlal Panel give great picture
5 Star Review   By member jrmath11 - Dec 10, 2007   

Strengths: Dual HDMI, easy to assemble stand, great price, FANTASTIC Picture.

Weakness: Component video is B&C plugs.

Been waiting for two years to buy my first plasma. While this is only a 720P, viewing it from 5 feet still provides an excellent picture. Technical reviewers were right about the quality of the picture. Did not need the tuner or speakers so this was a good option for my household.
