New Retrevo gear and gadget analysis tool looks at HDTV Reviews including LCD reviews, Plasma reviews, LCD user reviews, Plasma user reviews and important HDTV features to select best flat panel TVs from the leading TV manufacturers including Sony and Samsung.
Andrew Eisner, director of content at Retrevo says, "Your choice will most likely come down to Plasma or LCD however, don't write off projection TVs. Rear projection TVs (RPTVs) don't provide quite the image quality and viewing angle of LCD and Plasma TVs but you can't beat them for price and screen size. Front projection devices can sit on a table or hang from the ceiling and throw a very large, high definition image on a screen or living room wall. Retrevo scans and analyzes LCD TV reviews LCD TV user reviews, Plasma TV reviews Plasma TV user reviews, expert HDTV ratings, and user HDTV ratings along with LCD features and Plasma features, other HDTV features, and lowest price information to pick the best LCD TV and best Plasma TVs."
LCD TV vs. Plasma TV
By far the most popular TVs sold today are either LCD or Plasma. LCD TVs have enjoyed pricing benefits from using the same screens manufactured for computers but only up to a moderate size. Plasma TVs have the pricing edge on displays in the over 50 inch department.
