Plasma tend to be more expensive to run. LED is about the cheapest.
This is correct as far as I know. A good test for an LED backlight screen is to look at a blank screen picture. It shouldn't have any excessively bright patches around the edges or corners. The more you pay the better the result. It's only picky stuff though, the cheaper sets still have picture quality we could only dream of a few years ago. Bazza's Finlux TV was reviewed on The Gadget Show and came out very well against a much dearer Samsung with less features.I stand to be corrected on this, but "LED" TVs are just LCD screens with LED backlighting. True LED displays - OLED - are used for phones, tablets, etc., but are very much in their infancy as far as TVs are concerned, & very expensive.
LED backlighting makes the TV slimmer, but can give problems with uneven lighting across the screen.
Eh? Why must it be LED? Plasmas generally are regarded as having the 'best' picture quality due to deeper blacks and none of the ghosting associated with budget LCD screens (whether backlit by LED or CCFL.)For best picture quality it's got to be LED. You can find that if your a sports fan and watching football the picture can ghost in fast action, (don't have this problem when watching Leeds United though). Plasmas are good but much thicker made and heavier.
