Which do you think is better...Plasma or LCD?

We recently purchased a 42" Plasma Panosonic. Cost us $974 at Best Buy. Now everyone that has seen it says LCD's last longer. But, Plasmas have a better picture quality. If you know anything about TV's...what do you think is better?

  • LCD is better. A plasma will burn the picture if it is on it for a long period of time.

  • ronjwake...I've heard that. Why the heck would they make a $900 TV to freakin burn out? I hope it doesn't, as I refused to buy the warranty on it. lol

  • We own a 50 inch Plasma and we like it, however someone at my dh's work told him after we had bought it, that they are good but do not leave it on a station for too long or say a playstation game for example, paused too long because the picture can embed into the screen.. It will eventually go away dh had mentioned but can take some time to do so.. My dh also said Plasma has a much clearer picture than LCD.
