Here's some factors to think about when trying to pick out a plasma TV that is right for you. There are currently some great deals out there as plasma TVs have dropped in price recently due to high inventory build-up. The other reason plasma TVs have come down in price is that researchers have come up with a whole new technology that will be replacing plasma TVs someday. That shouldn't get you worried however because that's just the nature of the world we live in today. Technology is moving fast, and electronics just get outdated faster today than ever before.
In any case, you can save a lot of money today if you buy a plasma TV as opposed to buying one just a year ago. How much is a lot of money? Try 40-70 percent off. One thing you can do is shop at your local Best Buy, or Good guys and get ask all the burning questions you have about TVs. Ask them to explain what it means to be HDTV, what exactly is a true flat panel TV, and so on. Ask them to explain the difference between a plasma and non plasma TV. After you get all the information that you need, and have selected the TV that you like, write down the model number, go home and google that model number. Find out who is selling that model of TV and at what price.
Now, you may be thinking that you owe it to the guy at Best Buy for explaining everything to you, and maybe you do. But, they also owe it to you to offer a competetive price. So, go online and price the TV. Also, read reviews that others have left online. Take the reviews with a grain of salt, however because you never know if the reviewer has some sort of bias For example, you could imagine that someone who is a loyal and faithful employee at Panasonic, might go onto a Plasma flat panel HDTV review website and leave a nasty comment about a competetors TV like Sharp, Sony, or Samsung. I happen to like Panasonic Plasma Flat Panel HDTV televisions. But, that's just me. You may find after doing research that some other brand is for you.
In any case, go with a major brand and not a nobody who may go out of business and leave you stranded with a Plasma TV that goes bad after a year or two of use. Here's the top HDTV brands that you should consider: Daewoo, Futisju, Gateway, Hitachi, JVC, Panasonic, Philips, RCA, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Toshiba, Zenith.
