The plasma flat screen television w
as invented in the 1960s, and altho
ugh it made a brief appearance in t
he market in the 70s, it did not qu
ite 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 p
lasma flat screen television along
with other high-tech innovations, s
uch as surround sound speakers. The
  plasma flat screen television trul
y gives one the feeling of sitting
in the cinema, and, if mounted on t
he wall, it can save a lot of space
. Although the price was once out o
f the range of the average consumer
s, plasma flat screen televisions a
re slowly moving into the range of
affordability.

A plasma flat screen television use
s technology that is quite differen
t from the typical cathode ray tele
vision. Neon and Xenon gases move b
etween two flat panel glasses. Thes
e are inert gases and are not dange
rous. The result is amazing color;
the typical plasma flat screen tele
vision produces 16 million unique c
olors and provides great contrast b
etween dark and light. The screen h
as a _perfect black_ that gives it
a cinematic feel. Although the plas
ma flat screen television is much l
arger than the conventional televis
ion, with all of its devices, it is
 usually no more than four inches t
hick. This allows one to install a
plasma flat screen television on th
e wall to save space.

Although the cost of a plasma flat
screen television keeps decreasing,
 you should take into account the a
mount of power these televisions ca
n 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 t
echnology of the plasma TV is being
 developed and improved constantly,
 and, before long, using a plasma T
V will conserve energy.

One advantage to the plasma flat sc
reen television is that it has a re
latively long life; the typical set
 has 60,000 hours to half life (hal
f-life occurs when the screen quali
ty is reduced by half). When you pu
rchase your plasma flat screen tele
vision, ensure that you have an exc
ellent warrantee and that you can h
ave it serviced for free or at a lo
w 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 b
all at the screen, hundreds of indi
vidual tubes can lose their ability
 to glow, and repair for this is ex
pensive, if it is possible. It is t
herefore a good idea for parents to
 install their plasma flat screened
 television so that it is high enou
gh to avoid such interference (and
don_t let your kids play ball in th
e TV room!). There are tilt wall mo
unts 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 plasm
a furniture or special cabinets and
  stands for your plasma television.
  If you prefer the classic, hardwoo
d look, there are home entertainmen
t cabinets specially designed to ho
ld plasma flat screened televisions
 along with other equipment. For a
more contemporary look, you can fin
d metallic curved stands with simpl
e glass shelves or just a short sta
nd to place on top of an existing c
abinet or table.

An important tip to keep in mind wh
en choosing plasma flat screened te
levision furniture and supplies is
that they should be well-tested for
 sturdiness, since a plasma TV cann
ot handle a bump, much less, a comp
lete fall. Make sure that all surfa
ces and mounts are sturdy enough to
 hold your set or more weight, just
 to be on the safe side.
