plasma TV Plasmas can deliver a smooth, "filmlike" picture with impressive black levels.


A plasma TV might be for you if:


    * You like rich, warm colors and deep black levels.

    * You'll be sitting off-axis when you watch TV or movies.

    * You want the smoothest, most natural motion with fast on-screen action, like sports or video games.

If you need a screen smaller than 42", LCD is your only flat-panel TV option. LCD displays are very bright (brighter even than plasmas), so they can be better choices for more brightly lit rooms, including kitchens.
