Even more HD confusion for consumers

Want to be even more confused by which type of flat panel display to purchase? Just look at what Pansonic is offering in flat screens. Their advertising counters their own lcd technology – toting their plasma technology to be the best option for hdtv’s over 32″.

Why go plasma? Their new plasma technology has no burn-in problems, and the plasma gas never runs out, which once provided a strong argument against purchasing plasma. Plasma has richer colors, deeper blacks, handles motion better, and has a wider viewing angle than lcd.

However, Panasonic does believe that lcd is a better option in rooms with flourescent lighting, or lots of sunlight. LCD monitors don’t have as many reflection problems in these types of lighting environments.

OK, so once you have an idea of where your flat screen will go, it should be an easy decision on which technolgy to buy, right? Not exactly, according to NY Times writer Eric Taub, Panasonic Japan says it is perfecting lcd in larger formats. So much for easy decisions.
