Owning a 72 inch plasma TV is like a dream come true. Higher screen sizes of a plasma TV are cheaper than the same size LCD screens. Buying a 72 inch plasma TV can be relatively cheaper but it comes with high maintenance costs. The power consumed by a 72 inch plasma TV per square inch is high as compared to other flat panel models of the television. Working on the advantages and the disadvantages of having a 72 inch plasma TV can help the user decide better on which model and which brand to go for. There are several brands which offer different features in the different model. The plasma sets come with low availability of the PC connectivity option. There are very few models which can show this feature where as LCD TVs has this facility in most of the models. But if one is looking for a glare free image display, then LCD are the best. Their screens are made up of matte plastic and they do not reflect the ambient light from the screen. Plasma screens are made of glass and hence they result in the reflection of the light through the screen.
The distortion of the view when viewed through different angles is common in the LCD screen where as the plasma TVs show remarkable resolution and clarity of the image from any angle. There is also another feature that is important to note when talking about 72 inch plasma TV screens. They are not so durable and tend to form burn out images if the screen if left on the same image for a longer time. This is very rare in the LCD screens and hence they are considered more durable than the plasma. For lower sized models of the flat panels, the plasma is not suitable as they start only from the size of 32 inches and range till 72 inches. To compete with the plasmas in terms of picture quality, newer LCD screens has developed light emitting display technology with the backlighting system which reduces distortion and blur to the images and give a life like pictures.
Though the advancement of technology is huge there is no comparison with the plasma picture quality. The black color finish of the set makes the resolution even clear with the concept of the depth of black in the plasma displays. The Samsung and Mitsubishi are the leading brands when considering high tech display screens for better home theatre experience and featured game consoles. There is also an introduction of three dimensional imaging technology with the which gives live experience of playing games in a three dimensional environment. If one can bear the cost of the maintenance, plasma TVs are inexpensive among all other types of high sized TV sets. Other types of the flat panel display that are most popular are the rear projection televisions and the front view projector systems for home theatre experience. When plasma is compared to these types of flat panel displays, the picture quality reduces as one move away from the centre of the screen in the rear projection systems.
