Re: LCD vs Plasma
Not to mention the better blacks...
While plasma is admittedly not for everyone, I'm less sure that LCD's preeminence is due to any technological superiority than it is due to marketing. The fact is, the latest generation of plasmas address most of its perceived shortcomings (screen glare, burn-in, high electrical consumption and heat) while offering better picture quality at a cheaper price than LCD. This trend should continue as Panasonic (now the standard bearer for plasma) incorporates Pioneer's state-of-the-art KURO technology into its sets. If you are a hard-core film buff, and can live with the sacrifices that plasma requires (mainly a dimmer viewing environment), plasma is worth checking out.
