The 2008 HDTV Technology Face Off



[B]LCD, plasma, DLP, and LCOS enter Thunderdome. . .

To my knowledge, this has never been done before. Here we have a Face Off consisting of each of the major TV technologies. Two LCDs, two plasmas, two DLPs, and an LCOS battle for the eyes and minds of five distinguished reviewers. [/B]




An interesting read and i’m not surprised at all by the 1st and 2nd places in the tests. The Pioneer and Pansonic Plasma’s are simply stunning displays.


According to the reviewers: Plasma is still the king.

I was hoping to see Samsung plasma in the battle.


Home Theater Mag has pitted some of the top HDTV’s against each other in a be all, end all showdown to see which set reigns supreme. It’s kind of nice to see my opinion resonated in their conclusion: The Pioneer Kuro, being the set with the lowest resolution (720p) and having no 120hz technology, managed to best every other set they tested.

The results, in order:

[li]Pioneer PDP-5080HD Plasma HDTV[/li][li]Panasonic TH-50PZ750 Plasma HDTV[/li][li]Sony KDS-60A3000 SXRD HDTV[/li][li]Mitsubishi WD-57833 DLP RPTV[/li][li]JVC LT-47X898 LCD HDTV[/li][li]Sharp LC-52D64U LCD HDTV[/li][li]Samsung HL-T6187S LED DLP RPTV[/ol][U][/U][/li]
[I]*There were requirements: “The price had to be around $3,000 and the screen size as close to 50 inches as pricing would allow.”[/I]
