3D LCD TV vs. 3D Plasma TV, HD or no HD
You must have noticed there are quite a few different types of mixed sales messages that surround the 3D TV marketplace, such as 3D LCD or 3D Plasma with or without HD. Now for an average TV buyer this is all geek speak, but we would like to explain and simplify the 3D TV buying process for your convenience.
If you think these two technologies (Plasma or LCD) are similar and would show the 3D visuals in the same way, then you need to read this guide carefully. These two technologies are completely different, therefore a 3D TV having a different set of specs for LCD or Plasma will process and deliver the 3D content in a different way.
Generally LCD TVs are perceived to be of higher quality than Plasma. However, these two technologies are completely different. In fact, when it comes to 3D TVs, Plasma TVs have a much better screen refresh rate. This largely depends on the processing speed and the LCD TVs have now evolved from having 90Hz to now 480Hz, whereas Plasma TVs never had this problem due to the nature of how the Plasma TV technology works.
Another factor to be considered is the HD specs, and Plasma TVs can easily deliver full 1080p resolution for 3D, however LCD and LED TV technologies are catching up fast and we now see quite a few TVs being offered with HD LCD and HD LED specs.
Since the LCD and LED technologies are relatively new, therefore the manufacturers are also charging hefty prices for the latest 3D TVs.
