LCDs have clearer pictures and win in almost every category. LCDs last a lot longer, they're less fragile, they give a brighter picture, they're more energy effecient, they don't require "burning in" and their contrast ratio is much better.FuhkFace said:I recently bought a 42" Plasma HDTV and wanted to know whether people prefer a LCD over a Plasma or vica versa. My friend and I bicker back and forth which is better and I stand by the Plasma. Is a LCD better then a Plasma???
