Carlos would like to buy a new TV and wants to know whether he should get plasma or LCD? Leo says that plasma has the best quality, but with it's reflective screen, it's best to use in a darkened room. Companies are getting out of plasma, though, because everyone is buying LED TVs. Backlit LCDs have gotten so good that people are choosing them because they look better on the show room floor.

Leo says that Vizio is rapidly moving into the top tier with excellent quality at a low price. TCL and HiSense are coming into the market in the second tier, very aggressively, but it isn't clear just how good they are yet.
