A Samsung 43" Plasma 720 or a Samsung 40" LED 1080 60HZ?

by techdummy09 / November 9, 2012 3:04 AM PST

Hi all,

Both the TVs are priced same and I am confused which one to buy. Should I go for bigger size or better technology (if it is)?

It will be a great favor if somebody can advice.

Thanks a ton!

While I love plasma I won't buy one myself.

The makers and folk that sell them downplay image retention issues so be sure to nail them hard if they will warrant it against that issue. Not one maker will today.

So I'd get a 1080 LCD if it looked nice.

Also, why in this day and age is it only an ONE YEAR WARRANTY? Is there a problem they won't admit?

Thanks for the advice. Going by the problem of retention issues, I think LEDs would be safe bet. And I think they are more future ready too.
