Default Which Is Best: LED, Plasma, or LCD?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7-57344058-221/led-lcd-vs-plasma-vs-lcd/' target='_blank'>http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_...-plasma-vs-lcd/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Want to know the best part, and the dirty little secret of the TV world? If you're buying a name-brand TV, its picture quality is going to be really, really good. You are seriously picking from good, gooder, and goodly goodest here. Compared with flat panel TVs from just a few years ago, new HDTVs are thinner, brighter, bigger, better-performing, and cheaper than ever before. So have at it. Your new TV is going to be awesome for years to come."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1324524755.usr110171.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>Geoffrey Morrison over at CNet has an interesting article comparing the three predominant television technologies. If you have any experience at all following this industry, you will know how complicated it can be to stay on top of "what is what" and "what is best". One of the key points Morrison states makes a lot of sense to me: what is best depends on what is important to you. His article compares the technologies on a number of criteria: light output, black level, contrast ratio, viewing angle, and energy consumption. This is definitely not an in-depth, detailed comparison, but it does hit some high points and is a pretty good introduction to the issues and subject matter. The bottom line: each technology offers some benefits that may or may not be important to you. If you are trying to decide on a new TV, check out this article.</p>

I was walking through Costco the other day and caught a profile view of some of the sets and was shocked at just how thin these things had gotten in just the last few years. I have a pretty nice set from just a few years back and it is so thick (not that it really matters) compared to these new sets.

They're all on the Apple diet.
