Let’s take a brief look at what a plasma TV is and what it can give you for the money. A plasma TV has a flat panel screen and light is displayed by phosphors which emit visible light. A non-harmful gas discharge between two panels of glass excites these phosphors to provide the high quality picture. Samsung plasma TVs are amongst the best on the market.
A plasma TV screen has a large screen area with excellent picture quality and low picture distortion. Some of the advantages of a plasma TV are that most screens are 42 inch diagonally and upwards so they are very big TVs. Colour reproduction is also fantastic: the picture looks good from every angle as each pixel is individually lit. They are usually only around 2cm thick meaning they can be mounted on any wall, and they are considered the technology of the future, being HD ready and Digital TV ready. Samsung plasma TVs have all these features and more.
Some of the disadvantages are that they are still fairly expensive to purchase, they have lower resolutions than good LCD screens. The bigger ones can also use a lot of power and they are made from fragile substances so you have to be careful when moving them.
Samsung are a world famous brand so by buying a TV from them you’re sure you’re going to get a decent reliable product, so let’s take a look at some of the Samsung plasma TVs available.
One of the best-selling Samsung plasma TVs is the PS43E450 HD Ready 43 inch plasma TV. This Samsung 43 inch plasma TV has a stunning razor frame design with a crystal clear picture quality, making your living room seem like a home cinema.
This particular TV in the PS series is HD ready providing 1024 x 768 resolution is a great starter television for those who want the slim versatility but don't have the money to invest in a larger Full HD or 3D plasma. You can also connect a digital camera, flash memory or MP3 player to show off holiday photos or play music. Independent reviews have said this is a great TV for the money, but that sound from the built-in speakers was a tad disappointing. It also has a Freeview tuner, 2 HDMI ports, 1 Scart and 1 USB port each- plenty of room for a home cinema, games console or laptop! So if you fancy an affordable Samsung HD ready plasma, this could be the model for you.
At the other end of spectrum is PS64E8000 Full HD 64 inch Plasma 3D TV. This behemoth of a television really doesn't leave much to be desired. It comes packed with not only 1080p full HD and a 1920 x 1080 resolution, it has built-in Freeview HD and FreeSat HD, built-in Wi-Fi and access to all of Samsung's online entertainment and social hub. If that's not enough, you can also connect your Wi-Fi enabled devices like your smartphone or iPad for extra convenience. Lastly, Samsung's new Motion and Voice Control allows you to control your TV without the need for a remote. Throw in two pairs of active 3D glasses and a wall mount (all included), and we're sure you'll agree this plasma is worth every cent of its hefty price tag.
Overall, plasma TVs are a luxury item at the top end of the TV market. If you’re going to treat yourself and your TV is important to you, Samsung plasma TVs are a good place to look, getting some of the best expert and customer reviews.
