What’s the fuss about plasma TVs?

Tags : 

Plasma televisions are much like today’s fashion models; they are sleek, slim and very attractive. A plasma TV requires very little floor space. Gone are the days when TVs were chunky and bigger than any other item of furniture in the house. Flat screens and tiny electronic components mean that today’s televisions only need a little space on your wall.

Plasma TVs are the fancy, flat TVs that you often see hanging on the wall in homes these days. They are popular because they produce a crystal clear, high definition picture without any glare. They can also be configured to display your computer screen or video games. Plasma TVs are often paired with a good surround sound system to create the feel of having your own personal movie theater.

When buying a Plasma TV, do your research before you leave the house. Visit a price comparison web site to get an idea of what you should be paying. Secondly, when you have found a model you like, do a Google search to see what every day consumers are saying about it. Thirdly, ask around. Word of mouth is still a great way to get the “low down” on a product. If a certain model has a reputation for breaking down, you will hear about it!

The science behind plasma TVs is the use of neon and xenon gases to produce colour. Very much like a neon sign, miniscule tubes of neon are used to create the picture rather than the traditional pixels in older TVs and computer screens. Plasma technology produces a picture that is clearer than we have ever known as TV watchers.

Plasma TVs do have vulnerabilities. Screens are weak and susceptible to expensive or irreparable damage and they generally have a lower lifespan than traditional TVs. With time, neon tubes can lose their responsiveness or begin to leak.

Be sure to purchase an extended warranty and as much damage coverage as possible for your plasma TV. If you have a local retailer that offers to replace or exchange damaged items, this is the option you should choose when buying plasma as they can be very costly to repair.
