Frequently asked Questions


How do I choose between Plasma, LCD or LED? - For your home cinema installation, plasma screens are the most cost effective way of achieving a very good quality 42" picture from a display you can mount on the wall. They provide superbly rich and vibrant colours and smooth motion combined with good depth of field when used with high quality sources and are appropriate for home cinema installation. However the cheap screens are generally worth avoiding as serious compromises to their picture quality have been made to make them for that price. We would not recommend these for home cinema installation. Ultimately LCD and LED technology will overtake plasma for home cinema installation as it has numerous advantages. They last approximately one third longer than plasmas, are lighter, produce less heat, uses much less energy and they do not suffer from screen burn, so long term are better for home cinema installation. With the above in mind it should also be said that newer Plasma models are capable of approximately 50 000 viewing hours and technology has almost eliminated the problem of overheating and screen burn.
