The Pros and Cons of Buying a Plasma Television
By Mark J. Donovan
||Televisions of recent history used cathode ray tube (CRT) technology. CRT televisions were extremely heavy and had a very large backend. Also their picture quality was relatively poor. For the most part CRT televisions are a thing of the past, however, you can still find a few out there on the market. Plasma televisions, along with LCD televisions, have pretty much replaced CRT televisions today. There are pros and cons with each type, however I will focus my opinions on just plasma televisions.
Plasma Television Pros
Plasma televisions provide extremely clear and sharp images compared to CRT televisions. In a nutshell their pictures are just absolutely stunning.
I have purchased three plasma televisions over the past several years due to their ability to provide crystal clear images. They provide so vivid of an image you almost think the objects displayed on the television are literally in your room. The reason for this is that, unlike CRT televisions that use an electron beam to light up a tube, plasma televisions use solid state electronics to light up screen pixels on the glass.
Plasma TVs are also extremely thin compared to CRT televisions, however they are still quite heavy. Plasma televisions also provide much wider viewing angles than CRT televisions. Plasma televisions have 170 degree viewing angles thus enabling the TV to be watched from nearly any location in a room. Also, the wide viewing angle, along with their thin console, makes them ideal for mounting on walls.
So if you haven’t checked out a plasma television lately make sure you do when considering buying a new TV. You’ll be amazed at the picture quality and the price.
