The Internet the best place to buy the right plasma TV. There one can
shop with confidence at the world's leading plasma television dealers.
Whether it's needed for home or business, the Internet carries all the
major brand names, the best pictures, and at the best prices with the
fastest delivery.

But rushing out to buy a brand-new plasma television there are many
questions that must be answered first. Here are just a few of the things
that need to be considered.

What makes plasma TVs so much better?

Plasma TV offers an enormous, flat, bright, sharp, flicker-free display
that projects rich, life-like color. Most plasma screens are only a few
inches deep, so they require far less space than a CRT television of the
same screen size. In fact, most plasma TVs can even be wall-mounted. Many
people use them to display their digital photos as art!

Unlike many other methods   of producing large, thin screens, plasma TVs
have a wide viewing angle   and suffer little glare. The whole family or
the entire boardroom will   have a great view from wherever they are
sitting. There is no need   to worry about whether each seat is centered in
front of the television.

A plasma TV is also not prone to electromagnetic interference. This means
that electronics that produce powerful electromagnetic fields, such as
large speaker, will not mar the picture quality in the slightest by being
placed nearby to the screen. Plasma televisions even have lower power
consumption compared to a conventional CRT television.
What features should a plasma TV have?

Some plasma TVs require a built-in electric fan for cooling purposes,
much the same way as a desktop or laptop computer does. If the model of
television being considered is like this, make certain the fan is not
noisy enough to detract from the viewing experience. An increasing number
of modern plasma TVs are being designed without the need for a fan.

Consider whether or not the television has a TV tuner built-in. Some
plasma TVs function solely as monitors, and do not a TV tuner. Such a
unit would require an external video signal be supplied, such as from an
entertainment system.

The ideal plasma TV has a built-in TV tuner or comes with a separate
multimedia box that contains the TV tuner. A plasma TV will need to have
an analog TV tuner in order for it to receive and display an analog TV
signal like the local broadcast networks. Having a digital tuner allows
it to receive digital signals such as digital cable or freeview. The
plasma TV would not need to have a digital TV tuner included if a
converter box is already owned.

New plasma televisions should have a set of speakers attached on both
sides of the screen. A good set of quality speakers is required for
listening in stereo without poor sound quality making it hard to enjoy
the show.

Generally, it will not be important for the plasma TV to have a built in
amplifier for sound. If external speakers, such as a surround sound audio
system, are to be used with the television an external multi-speaker home
cinema system will yield the best results.

How should a plasma TV's picture quality be evaluated?

There are two easy criteria to determine which plasma TV screen quality
is the best. First, simply compare the peak panel brightness with other
plasma screens. The higher the peak brightness, the better. Then examine
the contrast ratio. Having a 1000:1 ratio is highly respectable and
again, larger ratios are better than smaller ones.

How long does a plasma TV screen last?

Average plasma TV screen have a life expectancy of approximately ten
years. This should provide more than enough years to justify the outlay
of money a plasma TV requires.
