Choosing a Plasma TV
by Tom Ace
You've finally made up your mind to buy a plasma TV. You dream of watching your
favorite television shows in full stereo, with sharp, crisp picture resolution.
But how do you go about finding your dream TV? Here are a few tips that will
help you get started.
The first thing that you should do is to decide on the size of the television
monitor you want. Generally speaking, plasma TVs begin at around 32 and
go as large as 63. The most common screen sizes are usually 32,
42, 50 and 61. So, measure the area where you want to place
your TV to get an idea of which size would be most practical for you. It's important
to remember that most plasma TVs have detachable speakers, so you will need
to allow for a few extra inches on either side of where the screen will be.
You may well have the option to buy extra slim speakers, which attach directly
to the monitor, if you don't want to use your own or an additional sound system,
with surround sound. It is important to check that the model TV that you want
to purchase has built-in amplifiers, or you will have to purchase or use an
Once you've ironed out the size and type of sound system you want, you will
have to consider the various mounting options that are available. The most common
way to mount your new TV is with what is known as flat wall mounts. This is
usually the cheapest option and places the plasma monitor almost flat against
the wall. Another popular mounting system for plasma TVs is the Tilt Wall Mounting
system. This allows the monitor to tilt away from the wall up to 15°. If
you don't want to have the monitor tilted, you can opt for a simple table stand.
This is ideal for the smaller monitors, allowing it to be used in boardrooms
for video conference calls or in your living room.
There are many factors to consider, when buying your plasma TV. However, if you
plan carefully, you should enjoy your new home entertainment center for years
