» LCD, Plasma or Projector?
Plasma televisions are like the Formula One racing cars of consumer electronics industry. Like LCD television, plasmas are much thinner than the traditional Cathode Ray or "tube" televisions and this slim design is a distinct advantage, especially in an apartment or small-room setting.
In a plasma television, microscopic cells containing inert gases are sandwiched between two panes of glass. When a cell is activated, the contained gas is charged with electricity, turning it briefly into plasma and causing it to emit light. These millions of cells working together form the impressive screen image that plasma televisions are renowned for.
Another touted advantage of plasma televisions is their superior colour range. Some enthusiasts argue that plasma televisions have better contrast - which translates into richer colours, "blacker" blacks and "whiter" whites.
One disadvantage of plasma televisions is the risk that an image, if left on the screen too long, will "burn in" to the screen and leave a permanent mark or ghost image.
LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Diodes and consists of coloured pixels arranged in front of a light source. Like plasma televisions, LCD has a slim design which is an advantage over the bigger, heavier CRT televisions.
LCD technology is tried and tested - currently used for computer monitors, portable gaming devices and television screens. One drawback is its relatively poor performance when displaying fast-moving images, which results in ghosting and other unwanted screen blips.
Their limited viewing angle can also be a drawback - people looking at an LCD screen from the far left or far right will not be able to see a clear picture.
We all know what a projector is from holiday slide nights with relatives, and from video presentations at high school or university.
In the home entertainment market, projectors have caught up with plasmas and LCDs for picture quality and on the price tag, making them a real competitor in the battle for the your dollar.
A drawback of projectors is the limited life span of the light bulb or lamp, which are said to last for 1000 to 2000 hours before they perish. The life expectancy of these bulbs/lamps is clearly stated in product information and should be carefully noted by potential buyers, along with the price of a new bulb
Mounting a projector on a wall or ceiling is both an advantage and a disadvantage. An advantage, because frees up space in the living area of a room. A disadvantage, because it requires extra effort and possibly a professional installation.
Projector buyers must also consider the need for adequate ventilation around these hot-running machines, and make sure the room is as free of dust as possible, to maximise the useful life of the projector and its bulb/lamp.
Ambient light makes a big impact on the quality of a projector image. If the room is filled with daylight, it will make the projector image poorer. Light-blocking curtains or a windowless home theatre room are the ideal spaces for a projector.
There are two types of TV projector Direct Light Processing (DLP) and LCD but the differences between the picture quality and performance are decreasing as the products are refined. A projector screen is required to get the best-quality picture from your projector.
