A little knowledge is always a dangerous thing and a little knowledge about a Plasma TV is not a good thing either. It is no surprise when a new and advanced thing comes out in the market, it will have a lot of discussions and reviews. So, was the case with Plasma TV with it being called as the best and the worst, all thanks to various discussions about it around the globe.
There are people who don’t have proper knowledge about its working or have just half the knowledge and cook up stories for the sake of fun. So, if you are looking to buy a new Plasma TV, don’t believe in such stories and take your decision based on facts and not such myths!
Plasma TV Myths & Facts
Myth– Plasma TV gets burnt out in a year!
Fact– Really? Why would someone pay so much just for one year? Any major brand’s Plasma TV has a life expectancy of more than 60,000 hours and that would just not finish within a year. Do you watch a lot of TV? Don’t worry you can watch it as much as you want.
Myth– Plasmas reflect dangerous radiations.
Fact– This is not true at all and that too for ‘dangerous’ radiations! It is a fact that all televisions reflect some radiations but in case of plasmas, the amount is so little that you need not sit too far away from it.
Myth– Plasmas are too expensive!
Fact– This is again not true as there was a time when their prices were high but that is not the case anymore. With the passing of years, Plasma and LCD TV’s have seen a great decline in terms of price. Now, you can easily buy a 42” Plasma for under $1000 and that is not that expensive at all.
Myth– There is no need to adjust the settings of a new Plasma TV.
Fact– Most of the new plasma TVs come with the settings required for them to perform well in a showroom. This generally includes picture, contrast or brightness controls set too high. These controls look great in the showroom but can get too ‘hot’ for your bedroom or lobby!
Myth– Plasmas have better picture quality than LCD’s.
Fact– Not true again as Plasmas are built with better and more advanced stuff than LCD’s. Although, both the TV’s will give you a sharp and high quality screen but a Plasma will have better color, contrast and black level to some extent.
Myth– Plasmas are difficult to install.
Fact– Not quite true as a traditional size Plasma can be installed even with the help of some of your friends. In case of a flat or tilted wall mount, the installation can get a bit complicated for a DIY job but for professionals, it is again a cakewalk!
