Plasma has a brighter picture compared to LCD and consumes less power...

But LED kick ass

In my case, Plasma was not even a option, simply because it was not available in smaller size, and same can be said for family members that I know that have HDTVs (too bad they purchase lower-tier brands, but that's a different story).

Default Cables

First of all, I am not knoledgeble with technology and I have a concern.

I purchase my new plasma and found that the colors for the cables on the Tv are: blue, green and red, this is for video and audio nevertheles the VCR, DVD and surround System cables of my peripherals are white, yelow and red.

If I purchase new cables with blue, green and red as indicated in my TV I can not match the colors of my peripherals. Should I use the cables white, yellow and red without damaging my new plasma? if I can woulld you please let me know which ones are equivalent

I am sorry for my ignorance.

The green, blue, red are for video signals called component when hooking to these inputs you must also hook audio cables to the red and white audio outputs.

The red/white/yellow cables are for composite (audio & video) cables and any device that only has these will be SD devices so those must be used. For composite only the yellow cable is for video and the red/white cables are for the L/R audio connection. As Pappylap stated component is red/green/blue and are HD connections for HD devices, but all 3 cables are for video only. You need to add the red/white cables for audio.

if you are looking for the best PQ then there really is no comparison in the two
plasma is superior in black levels,color saturation,shadow detail,screen uniformity,off axis viewing,motion resolution(full 1080)

LCD will provide a brighter picture(although not necessarily uniform in brightness)more carefree use,no burn in issues( this is less of a factor in newer plasma sets),lighter(plastic screen as opposed to glass) and more energy efficient(again less of a factor in newer plasmas)

for me the motion problems and screen uniformity associated with LCD and LED are the biggest drawbacks

Real intelligent comment. Yuppies are alive and well.

BTW, I didn't see any mention or power consumption in the OP. Nor did I see any specific mention of LED driven sets. Namely differences between CCFL and LED.

It has been shown on this forum numerous times Video that power consumption issues between LCD/LED and Plasma is a moot point, maybe $2.00 to $3.00 more per month for plasma over similar sized LCD...

1. There is a difference between a LED driven LCD and a CCFL driven LCD. Other than power consumption, add heat, weight and thickness issues.
2. There is more to it than a $$ saving on ones electric bill.

You can't lump LED and CCFL into one category just because the panel is LCD.

Please post a source and I will listen. If the numbers are substantial then it should be a consideration.

Apparently, there seems to be some one sided discussions here.

revised, deleted

upon closer inspection I see that saving approx 10 to 14 dollars a year may be important to some of our viewers...

Is that the only thing you care about?
You really need to step back and look at the big picture. Multiply the reduction of energy (natural resources) by the number of devices in use around the world and then tell me how little it means.

Green is in (if it not too late already).

To address what you deleted regarding Panny Neo panels, take a look here;
http://www.displayblog.com/2009/05/1...lcd-vs-plasma/

I was remotely considering one of these, but after reading the actual tested numbers, the reduction of current consumption was no where near as much as they claimed.
