Viewing Angle
In general, plasmas have better viewing angles than LCD and LED TVs, with their
images remaining solid and colourful at wide viewing angles while LCDs suffer fr
om colour shift and loss of brightness. This is not always the case, though, so
it is best to compare panels directly against each other if possible. LED televi
sions have superior viewing angles compared to LCDs due to their decentralised b
acklight distribution.

plasma TV may be your best bet
plasma TVs run the risk of being permanently damaged by "static images,"
Generally, it will cost about 50 percent more to run a plasma television for a y
ear than an LCD television. LED screens use the least amount of power. They use
about 40 percent less energy than an LCD TV
plasma screen has the shortest half-life 60,000 hours (in other words, it will take
33 years for the TV's brightness to be half a new TV's brightness if used for 5
hours a day)[3]. LED televisions generally have a half-life of over 100,000 hour
s. LCDs fall somewhere between the two.
LCD screens are the most affordable options (they may be your only option for sm
aller screen sizes). Plasma TVs are generally only available as larger screens a
nd are slightly more expensive than their LCD counterparts. LED screens are the
newest TV technology and are much more expensive

Backlight-dimming flicker
LED backlights are often dimmed by applying pulse-width modulation to the supply
current, switching the backlight off and on more quickly than the eye can perce
ive. If the dimming-pulse frequency is too low or the user is sensitive to flick
er, this may cause discomfort and eyestrain (similar to the flicker of CRT displ
ays at lower refresh rates).[citation needed] This can be tested by a user simpl
y by waving their hand in front of the screen; if it appears to have sharply-def
ined edges as it moves, the backlight is pulsing at a fairly low frequency. If t
he hand appears blurry, the display either has a continuously-illuminated backli
ght or is operating at a frequency too high to perceive. Flicker can be reduced
(or eliminated) by setting the display to full brightness, although this degrade
s image quality and increases power consumption.
