Default Re: Plasma TV is dead

LCD has all those advantage, and one disadvantage. When a pixel goes black on a plasma display, it just turns off and emits no light. It's black. But on an LCD, the pixel turns opaque in front of a back light, and some light leaks through.

This problem is being solved by the upcoming LCD displays, which have an array of LED lights than can turn down when a region of the screen is dark.
