By: ebet sanders
Plasma televisions have come a long way since they first appeared about a decade ago and has become the latest must-have home appliance is on the market. They are flat, hip and offers fantastic images unlike anything we've seen on older TV models before. Plasma televisions do seem to have it all, but is the answer to all our home entertainment beans or just a trend? Unfortunately, plasma television has a few drawbacks.

This is the number one consideration for many videophiles and plasma TV is not cheap at all. When they first came out in the 90s, the price tag for the plasma television showed a whopping $ 10000. , There is a part of a regular home mortgages and enough to get consumers running in the opposite direction.

These days, but the price is calmed down, thanks to better production methods and the magic demand. In fact, a good amount of brand-name plasma TV costs at least $ 2500. It is still the price of about three regular television with a few video CDs thrown in. Compared to its closest rival, LCD TV, plasma TV, one of its drawbacks, still cost more.

But with the price comes quality. Nowhere else can we find the kind of high-definition viewing pleasure that plasma TV can offer. If the price is a disadvantage, they more than compensate for it with their quality. Besides, for a true videophile, plasma television has a short return on investment and they will more than compensate for their price in a few years. If you think about that it is not really a disadvantage to have a plasma TV now, is it?

Plasma TV had a notorious reputation for conking out after a specific set of viewing hours.
In 2004, plasma television offered a disadvantageous 20000 hours of viewing pleasure. Compare that an LCD-TV's 50,000 hours.

These days, however, plasma televisions have been improved and longer life. Depending on the brand, plasma TV has a half-life of 60000 hours. If you are a normal person with a normal family, which has normal TV viewing hours, that should not be considered a disadvantage. Imagine this: if you spend at least 5 hours in front of your plasma TV, which will translate to about 33 years of use.

The viewing hours not set any date for your plasma TV. The number of hours applies to plasma TV's half-life, or the time when the TV screen burns on half of its original brightness.

This is another disadvantage of plasma televisions. Plasma TVs will be called the way thanks to the thousands of minute fluorescent light in the screen. These lights are filled with gas-burning each time television is used. This is a good thing, because compared to LCD and the older CRT television, a plasma TV only need to light up when they are necessary. LCD panels are like a big pear, which is always turned on.

With regular TV use, it is really not a problem. The drawback appears when you display a static image on the screen. What is a static image? If you are an HBO fan and you have your plasma TV on at HBO for hours on end, very soon you will notice a slight HBO logo on the screen, even if you are switched on to ESPN or another channel.

It is also a problem if you are a heavy video game use. If you connect your video game console to your plasma TV and play all day for day after day, hour to play, will burn in the picture, says life meter on your plasma screen. It will be a little embarrassing especially if you have friends over and they will see a dim picture of your otherworldly persecutions right before their eyes.

But then again, the risk of burn-in will only be a real threat and disadvantage if you use plasma TV full blast. You can always cheat by reducing the TV's contrast to only 50%.

With each new technology, there are always good things and bad and plasma TV is not free of these issues. In the game "who's-better TV 'that is really not a clear winner. If you choose a plasma TV, then it is only because you like what you see, you can afford it, and you can handle the drawbacks of a plasma TV at the same time enjoy the benefits.
