TV type: LCD
LCD, which stands for liquid crystal display, works best in well-lit rooms because it is illuminated by a backlight but also uses light in a room. It has the widest range of sizes and models to choose from and is more energy efficient than a plasma.
Consumer reports also wrote that they generally have less glare than plasma options.See Consumer Reports' article comparing plasma and LCD televisions.
