What are your guys thoughts? I got an LED tv and I wasn't very impressed with it, it seemed during games and action scenes when people are moving fast it's glitchy and fuzzy. We got a 120hz LG. even during blu ray movies when people moved fast the quality went down. I tried the tru motion junk and it helped a little but didnt eliminate the problem. I have a 60 in plasma an the picture on that thing seems a lot better.
should have gotten 240hz LED that would have made a HUGE difference
I have a 72" Plasma I bought Dec 2011. I loved it from the moment I saw the picture and it was substantially ($400+) cheaper than the LED at that time.
Absolutely great to watch Buckeye games or anything else.
Just my opinion, of course.
Weight and bright rooms have been the things that keep me from a Plasma TV. We just got a 46-inch Samsung LED from Target on a Christmas Eve sale for $600 and have been very pleased with the Pic. Light as hell, too - even my old 42-inch Toshiba (crappy screen) is a lot heavier. Plasmas are a bear.
Plasma always beats LCD/LED TVs for sports and action movies. Check out the highly regarded Panasonic ST series. CNET has a great review!
Plasmas are only good if they are viewed in dark areas like basements...they glare to plasmas are just too much for me to overcome...70" Samsung LED is where it is at
Im all about a bright picture. Plasma doesnt come close to a backlit LED tv. Ive had probably a dozen flat screens over the past few years, lcd, led, plasma. Led by far the best. Also depends on the brand. Samsung is the best if you ask me. Got 2 samsung led in the living room now. Both samsung. 60 and a 46. One for tv one for gaming. Love em
LED will use a whole lot less electricity. When I replaced my plasma with LED 6 months ago my electric bill went down by 120 a month. No joke. My wife has the tv on all day because she thinks the dogs watch it while we're not home but that's still a huge difference.
The problem is directly to do with ur refresh rate Hz, the more Hz the better for what I think you want. If you our a hd / blue ray / gaming / 3d / smart TV guy go led. Most people only need the pma or lcd for basic tv and game viewing. Pma come in 600hz so it would be good for u and a easy trade so you don't have to spend any more money.
I have a 55 inch LG LED 3D tv. Best thing ever I purchased.
I have a LED, Plasma and LCD. and the LED is BY FAR the best quality. (Samsung LED, LG plasma and Sony LCD)
As most people have stated It's a matter of personal taste. The facts are LCD/LED come basically with 120/240 HZ and plasma is 600 HZ. That means plasma is able to display movement better which is suited for sports and action movies. Also blacks display better on plasma screens. As said the LED/LCD are better in well lighted rooms as they have less glare. Plasma's are thicker and heavier. Sharp only makes LCD/LED tv's. Samsung and Panasonic make some plasma's. LCD/LED usually will have a longer life and cheaper to fix after warranty expires.
Plasma is better, but I would still go with LED.
It isn't much difference.
LED is a lot lighter, easier to mount.
LED uses a lot less energy.
LED should last longer.
LED doesn't give off all that heat.
Jper, Im not saying you're wrong but Plasma's have significantly more energy usage than an LED (flourescents make a big difference in the energy usage) and for your bill to go up $120 a month it would take approximately 3000 watts of added electricity to do that and an LED is much smaller than that. A furnace may not even be that much. Basically you'd need like 4 LED's running at all times to make your bill go up that much.
If sunlight hits a plasma screen your TV turns into a mirror. So, if you have a room full of windows get an LED.
Not much. Plasma is the best for sports
I've sold TV's for years...trust me it makes a HUGE difference
I will be buying a new TV in March. Everything I am reading says plasma has the best picture. And that the Panasonic VT and GT are the best available.
Also doesn't last as long, gets burn marks if you leave it on to long. Is a lot heavier, etc
LED is the best all around TVs out today... That's why they are more expensive usually...
I do as well and the tv could not be better. The 3d is really cool on it much better then i thought it would be. I also have 47 inch Led vizio in my man cave and its great as well and the price was so cheap.
Are the LED's true LED TV's and not just the LED's around the sides?
Your first problem is 120 hz... Thats where you are getting in trouble.
Also, you likely need to configure your settings. However, I'm not sure how good the LG's are with LED. I have a Samsung and its superb.
Regardless, as far as "picture" Plasma is simply the best. There is no argument. In a dimly lit room, comparing plasma picture to LED or LCD is noticably in Plasma's favor. BUT... Plasma is inefficient. It's SUPER heavy and awkward. You need some good solid furniture or wall mount to even hold the damn thing up. It emits LOADS of heat. But also, the plasma deteriorates. The life of the television is not nearly as long. In 5 years my LED will operate exactly the same. While on a Plasma the picture quality will have reduced considerably.
I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.

Technically they are LCD's with an LED backlight.
