Last year, for the first time since CNET Australia started, an LCD television surpassed a plasma as our favourite screen of the year.
Year on year, LCD technology keeps on improving, while the improvements in plasma are more modest. While the quality increases, the price keeps on dropping, which means that LCD represents much better value for money than before.
Until recently, the maxim was that screens over 40 inches were the domain of plasma, while under 40 inches was the preserve of LCD, but this is changing. It's safe to say that all but the bargain bin LCDs of 40-plus inches feature a 1080p resolution and full HD tuners.
