Im planning to pick a 21 inch colour TV.
The question is whats the life of an LCD compared to that of a convential Flat screen Digital image type.

Plasma screens will burn out themselves (and burn in frequently-displayed images). No repair possible.

With LCDs it is the backlight that will lose brightness over the years, but it can be replaced. The most expensive part, the LCD panel itself, doesn't wear out noticeably.

Depends on what you're talking about. There is not really a "normal" type.

If you have the space to accomodate a flat screen CRT, it will be cheaper and have better image quality. The life may be longer for the LCD but it costs twice as much. Just depends on what is more important to you.


Sometimes I go about in pity for myself and all the while a great wind carries me across the sky.

Not totally because someone mentioned that a Digital CRT Tv would be better lifewise than both LCD & Plasma.
So the doubt arose.

CRTs do age as well, if not as rapidly as plasma displays. Replacing the CRT itself isn't worth it, but replacing the backlight of an LCD may well be.

Although the quality ramp-up is still so steep that today's displays will be very outdated before the backlight gives out.

The LCD will look sharper and usually more brilliant, but ultimately the display technology is secondary to the more important factors:

• Is it HD ready? Without an HDCP-compliant interface you won't be able to view any future High-Definition DVDs on it (they would only be displayed in low definition).

• Does it have a properly implemented digital image processor? How well is up-scaled low-density material displayed? Edges and fast movements can look really crappy on a cheap one.

• Does it support full resolution when connected to an external digital or analog source such as a computer or an external set-top-box? Many current screens don't, and that may limit the ways you can use it.

• Which inputs does it offer? Does it offer any usable integration with external receivers, DVD players or digital video recorders?

Most disappointments will not come from the actual display technology but from the digital circuitry controlling it in either case. It is substantially different between models, and that's where most of the improvements are currently happening.
