Why might you choose a flat panel LCD TV over plasma or other kinds of televisions? For one thing, LCDs have a lot of the advantages of plasma -- very thin screens, great pictures and a wide variety of available sizes. (You can even get a refrigerator with an LCD TV in the door!) LCD TVs are lighter and use less energy than plasma sets, making it easier to use them in a variety of settings, including wall mounts. They are the preferred choice for people who want to use their TV screen for video gaming or Web browsing, because LCDs are not at all prone to burn-in, as some plasma sets can be.
