Buying Guide to Plasma TV’s

If you’re looking to buy a new TV and are not sure what you should be looking for, check out these advantages of owning a Plasma TV; Plasma TV’s have the most incredible clarity of any type of television, because Plasma TV’s don’t use a beam of light to project images on to the screen as conventional TV’s do, the plasma TV has perfect on-screen focus.

Plasma TV’s use pixels consisting of 3 cells of light, (red, blue, and green) that combine together to create the images you see on your plasma display screen every time you turn it on. By combining those “cells” of color, the plasma TV is able to display more than 16 million colors on to the screen.

By using these “cells” of colors in each pixel of the Plasma TV, they diminish the scan lines that you usually see on conventional television sets. Each new Plasma TV displays smooth, evenly lit images across the entire display screen.
Most of the newer plasma screens also have built-in line doubling (this improves the image quality of low-resolution video signals.)

Plasma televisions offer incredible color realism, having this is what gives the plasma screens an edge over all other types of video screens in the eyes of most consumers.

Plasma TV’s are incredibly easy to watch, doing well in most lighting conditions bright lights will not make your picture fade unlike standard televisions. The backlighting also does not glare on to your TV screen. While front view projections screens require you to turn out the lights to see the image clearly and easily, the flat screen of a plasma TV has approximately a 180Ã?° viewing angle so you can watch the TV from almost anywhere in the room. On conventional TV screens you would have to turn the lights out or dim them greatly because of the glare on the screen, but with the flat screen of the plasma TV the glare drastically reduces.

It is really important to put into consideration when shopping around for a big-screen TV, the screen’s viewing angle, the viewing angle represents the total area in front of the screen that can be seen without distortion, with most plasma TV’s the incorporate a viewing angle of approximately 180Ã?°. Another really great thing about plasma TV’s is that they come in a nice range of sizes, anywhere from 30″ to 70″ diagonally and only 3″ to 4″ in depth.

The sizes and weight of the plasma TV are ideal for most consumers, making the screens very versatile and allowing the consumer to mount the screen or set it on a number of different styles of stands, plasma TV’s can be used anywhere from your home to your office and for industrial purposes.

You may be a little nervous about purchasing a plasma TV because of horror stories you may have heard in the past such as, stationary images burning in and producing permanent ghosting (the ghost effect done to a screen by static images that are displayed for an excessively long period of time). When a still or static image like a stock market ticker, a station logo or a video game score display is left on the screen for excessively long periods of time, the image becomes burned in to the screen bye the picture-producing mechanism. But these problems have greatly diminished in newer plasma products, some new companies have discovered technology to deal with and fix the burn-ins by moving stationary pixels just enough to prevent such a thing from happening.

Durability is also an important issue to look in to, plasma TV’s have been rated for a minimum of 30,000 hours and may last as long as 60,000 hours of your viewing pleasure, which also translates in to 10 to 20 years of providing you with the plasma technology you’ve come to love. But you would probably want to replace your plasma TV long before it ever shows signs of slowing and producing bad quality pictures, so still 10 to 15 years of beautiful plasma TV pictures is well worth the hefty price that comes along with it.
