The plasma flat screen television was invented in the 1960s, and although
it made a brief appearance in the market in the 70s, it did not quite
catch on. Nowadays, the plasma flat screen television is defining what a
home theatre should be, and most people who pride themselves on having a
fine home theatre own a plasma flat screen television along with other
high-tech innovations, such as surround sound speakers. The plasma flat
screen television truly gives one the feeling of sitting in the cinema,
and, if mounted on the wall, it can save a lot of space. Although the
price was once out of the range of the average consumers, plasma flat
screen televisions are slowly moving into the range of affordability.

A plasma flat screen television uses technology that is quite different
from the typical cathode ray television. Neon and Xenon gases move
between two flat panel glasses. These are inert gases and are not
dangerous. The result is amazing color; the typical plasma flat screen
television produces 16 million unique colors and provides great contrast
between dark and light. The screen has a “perfect black” that gives it a
cinematic feel. Although the plasma flat screen television is much larger
than the conventional television, with all of its devices, it is usually
no more than four inches thick. This allows one to install a plasma flat
screen television on the wall to save space.

Although the cost of a plasma flat screen television keeps decreasing,
you should take into account the amount of power these televisions can
use when you figure out the cost in real terms. While there are many
energy-efficient models, a larger plasma flat screen television uses a
lot of electricity. However the technology of the plasma TV is being
developed and improved constantly, and, before long, using a plasma TV
will conserve energy.

One advantage to the plasma flat screen television is that it has a
relatively long life; the typical set has 60,000 hours to half life
(half-life occurs when the screen quality is reduced by half). When you
purchase your plasma flat screen television, ensure that you have an
excellent warrantee and that you can have it serviced for free or at a
low cost.

One thing to be aware of with your plasma flat screened television is
that it is quite delicate, and the slightest bump can cause problems. For
instance, if a child throws a ball at the screen, hundreds of individual
tubes can lose their ability to glow, and repair for this is expensive,
if it is possible. It is therefore a good idea for parents to install
their plasma flat screened television so that it is high enough to avoid
such interference (and don’t let your kids play ball in the TV room!).
There are tilt wall mounts that allow you to install your plasma flat
screened television at an angle if you store it high.

Along with the plasma flat-screened television, you can purchase plasma
furniture or special cabinets and stands for your plasma television. If
you prefer the classic, hardwood look, there are home entertainment
cabinets specially designed to hold plasma flat screened televisions
along with other equipment. For a more contemporary look, you can find
metallic curved stands with simple glass shelves or just a short stand to
place on top of an existing cabinet or table.

An important tip to keep in mind when choosing plasma flat screened
television furniture and supplies is that they should be well-tested for
sturdiness, since a plasma TV cannot handle a bump, much less, a complete
fall. Make sure that all surfaces and mounts are sturdy enough to hold
your set or more weight, just to be on the safe side.
