HD Plasma TV is best known for its advanced picture quality coalesced with its hefty and thin screen sizes. It can produce a maximum of 8.6 billion colors (not to mention the fact that it has an accurate color reproduction) with its wide viewing angles of 16 units wide and 9 units high. At present, some HD Plasma TV units are now manufactured in oversized screen sizes, which span up to 70 inches. Aside from that, HD Plasma TVs are also known for their extended lifespan capacity of approximately 60,000 hours and greater contrast levels than ordinary TV sets. When it comes to its pricing, HD Plasma TVs are cheaper than LCD flat panels of equal size.
All of these HD Plasma TV features are from its thousands of display cells. The cells are positioned to link the x and y-axis panels. These cells are composed of single glass slots with a mixture of neon and xenon gases. The three primary colors of red, green, and blue are produced when these gases are electrically charged. HD Plasma TV’s gas ejection does not have any mercury in it as opposed to an AMLCD backlight.
HD Plasma TV is delicate to handle. It can not be transported easily because of its fragile components. Its aspect in dark or black level is not as great compared to an ordinary CRT-type TV sets. Because it is a phosphor-based TV, it is certain that an image can experience a “burn-in” effect. A burn-in can occur when a picture settles longer than the usual in the screen display. This generally happens when you are watching films that have black bars on its ends.
HD Plasma TV also burns up much power consumption. Its average energy usage (for a large set) is 700 watts.
