plasma TV
Last modified: Friday, April 07, 2006 

Plasma TV's create a picture from a gas (plasma) filled with xenon and neon atoms and millions of electrically charged atoms and electrons, that collide when you turn the power on. The energy the collision releases increases the energy level in the plasma and the neon and xenon release photons of light (similar to the way neon lights work). Plasma TVs offer large viewing areas (up to 50 inches) but are very thin. While they offer excellent picture quality, they are quite expensive and are fast becoming the popular choice for HDTV.

Plasma TV Buying Guide 
We've all heard certain plasma displays described as "enhanced" definition displays. "Enhanced" certainly makes these plasma TVs sound good … desirable even. Lucky for us there's more to this than just clever marketing. Enhanced-definition (or ED) plasma TVs are actually better than conventional, tube-type TVs -- not just slimmer and wider.
