Home Electronics: The Facts About Plasma TV

Written by Simon Canfield

Not so many years ago, homes acrossrepparttar country watched their favorite TV shows on a bulky floor model that took awhile to warm up before you could seerepparttar 137722 picture, didn’t offer anything inrepparttar 137723 way of remote control manipulation and offered a washed out image onrepparttar 137724 TV’s cathode ray tube hosted screen...and folks were thrilled to have such marvelous technology in their midst. Today, all of that’s been changed, withrepparttar 137725 introduction of plasma TV.

Instead of trekking torepparttar 137726 local theater to catch a favorite flick, those who own a plasma TV can get pretty muchrepparttar 137727 same experience in their own homes. Ifrepparttar 137728 thought of shelling outrepparttar 137729 amount of money that one of these sets costs makes you flinch, think of how much you’d be spending to buy movie tickets, and your perspective will change. If you multiplyrepparttar 137730 number of movies that you’ll watch on your plasma set by $8.00 (the average price of a movie ticket these days), you’ll see thatrepparttar 137731 set will quickly pay for itself. Even if your purchase price was $4300 for a 50” widescreen model, you’d see a profit after just about 538 movies were viewed – watching two movies per day, then, would have you realizing a profit after about 9 months. When you factor inrepparttar 137732 cost of popcorn and a drink, you’ll be seeing a profit a lot quicker than that.

Known for their magnificent color, clarity and brightness, plasma TVs come in a variety of sizes – from 37” to over 60”. Instead ofrepparttar 137733 bulky floor models of yesterday,repparttar 137734 plasma TVs of today are as thin as 3.25” – demanding far less accommodation for depth – and can be mounted onrepparttar 137735 wall. This helps to provide a true theater experience withoutrepparttar 137736 need for a lot of bulky hardware cluttering up repparttar 137737 room.
