Buying a TV and wondering what type of display tech is better? We’ve got the lowdown for you in this LCD vs Plasma buying guide. These two technologies produce images through vastly different processes, and each comes with a different set of pros and cons. So before we dive head first into which type of screen is better and why, it’s helpful to understand the technology behind each type of screen. Don’t worry, it’s not as complex as you might think.

Today in New York City, Samsung officially unveiled its new line of plasma televisions. Among the new models is the top-of-the-line F8500 series, which we first saw in a private meeting with Samsung at CES 2013. At the time, some of the details surrounding the set were strictly hush-hush.
Chosen By Robert Wiley , Senior Editor Below are the best 3D TVs as recommended by our editors at CEAG. We have reviewed these 3D TVs picture quality, features offerings, and value to price comparison and come up with this list. This list does not take into account best sellers in the marketplace but instead our top reviewed models taking as many variable qualities into account as possible. We even consider how well the accompanying 3D glasses work and how much they cost or whether they come with the TV. This list changes frequently so check back regularly!

What are the differences in the TVs and Glasses? What are the Advantages and Disadvantages? by Phil Conner and Robert Wiley With LG, Vizio and Toshiba going with passive 3D glasses and Samsung, Sony, and Panasonic producing active 3D glasses and TVs, this battle is really heating up. Consumers are asking the questions, "when will I be able to watch 3D without glasses," and "what's the best way to watch 3D TV now?"
We compare a pair of 65-inch TVs, one with active and one with passive 3D TV technology. (Credit: David Katzmaier/Joseph Kaminsky) In late 2010, Vizio quietly released the 65-inch XVT3D650SV ($3,700), the first mainstream TV equipped with so-called "passive" 3D technology for the U.S. market. Earlier this week our review sample arrived, so in advance of the full review I'd like to present some initial impressions. This is the first time we've had a chance to really sit down and watch a passive 3D TV , so of course our first order of business was to set it up in the lab next the other 65-inch 3D TV we had on hand: the 2010 Editors' Choice -winning ($4,300). Like nearly all other TV makers, Panasonic has embraced "active" technology for its 3D TVs, and for 2011, it didn't announce any passive 3D TVs.
