During the 1950’s a great thing happened to the entertainment division of consumer electronics — it was the time when television was made colored. Then a few decades later the consumer electronic industry introduced the infra red remote control. Both developments were most significant to the users since it brought with it the convenience and the ultimate entertainment experience.

Now there are two kinds of displays that are competing in the television consumer market share — the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and the Plasma TV. Interior designers, architects and even home owners now are constantly searching for things that can save space because the price for space is constantly on an uphill drive. The thinner the appliance the more attractive and viable it is for an urban lifestyle living.

Home appliance consumers have welcomed the technology with open arms since these displays come in big sizes giving the viewer a «wow» experience because of its crisp, clear and lifelike images. Traditional televisions that rival these sizes eat up a lot of space and consume more electricity.

But for ordinary consumers who want a piece of the flat panel action it would be a brain drain looking at these displays and not knowing the advantages or disadvantages.

Size

When it comes to sizes these panels affirm the phrase «bigger is better». Since these slim displays only have an average thickness of 5 inches; it can virtually fit to any wall or even perhaps the ceiling. But for buyers who would be modest about the sizes of their electronic appliances, LCD television units have more variety of sizes to choose from since Plasma TV starts its size at 32 inches.

Consumption

The power consumption for these displays may vary relative to its size. But in this area the LCD wins. Displays at 32 inch sizes were tested and the LCD consumed of about 30 — 40% less power than its Plasma counterpart.

Distance and Viewing Angles

Viewing distances for both Plasma and LCD TV would basically be the same and are both dependent on size. In the viewing angle area, the LCD TV possesses a whopping 174 degrees of viewing angle as compared to the Plasma which is only 145 degrees.

Color and Resolution

Against color depth the Plasma TV produces the true black color than the LCD TV. But now LCD manufacturers have come up with the High Definition resolution which is called the HD 1080i.

All in all, both the LCD and the Plasma TV have its own pros and cons. It’s all up to the user’s preference. Both have far more superior advantages over the traditional CRT television.

While some television fans might think that bigger is always better, new numbers are showing that television viewers are shelling out less for a plasma screen to watch their favourite programmes on.

And that decline has led to a demand for smaller screens. LCD screens are moving up in the market world, as customers embrace the fact that LCD’s can be purchased in a variety of sizes and configurations.

In a report published online, it was noted that sales of plasma screen televisions declined in the last quarter of 2008. They noted that during the all-important Christmas season, more people were choosing to purchase smaller televisions for their homes. Experts have said that this could be because many people are choosing to purchase a second, smaller television for other rooms in their homes — as their main sitting room could already host one of the popular, large screen plasma’s.

As well, it has been noted that customers are reporting increased satisfaction with LCD screens in terms of picture and sound quality, which has been evolving to rival plasma status.

To some, plasma and LCD televisions are very similar, meaning many choose based on size and what’s available. However, there are some notable differences between the two, including how bright and sharp the images are. One plus is that LCD screens can be used in a high altitude, which is good for customers who may experience altitude changes in their homes.

However, it should be noted that experts believe the popularity of the plasma screen television won’t disappear, as many prefer the look of sports and movies on such screens. However, many customers are choosing the LCD as an affordable, low-key option compared to plasma screens. In fact, recently many experts have said that LCD screens are friendlier to the environment. LCD screens use less power and produce less brightness, meaning they use less energy and damage the environment less.

It has also been noted that plasma screen televisions actually use 50 per cent more energy than LCD screens, making the decision to switch televisions easier for some who are concerned about their carbon footprint.

For those concerned about price, consumer groups are reporting that the difference in price between LCD and plasma screens is shrinking, as both technologies adopt similar technologies and practices. So, when it comes to watching your favourite programmes on good quality television, viewers have plenty of options. And with services like Sky+ HD available, you can watch shows in stunning quality on both HD ready LCD and plasma televisions whenever you like.

Now that Ronnie the Rat has been exterminated, the drama has been kept to a dull roar. Russell spent some time trying to mend some fences (read: kissing Chima’s butt) as he apologized for his blow-up earlier last week. He told her that people make mistakes, and he’s owning up to his actions. Chima accepted his apology but said that she still didn’t trust him. She wants a girl to win Big Brother this year, so she’s thinking she’s going to put up two guys. I’m thinking it doesn’t matter what you do, Chima, because Jeff can change it all if he wants. Speaking of Jeff and his Coup D’ Etat – nobody in the house knows who has this «mystery power» which they are now calling The Wizard, because wizards can do magical stuff. Make sense? Good. Just making sure.

To kick off the luxury challenge competition, the hamsters were treated to a surprise visit with a celebrity. «Entourage’s» Jeremy Piven came ringing at their door, and once he was inside the house standing before them, a kind of shy, low-key hush fell over the group. If you think about it, it must be somewhat of a surreal moment – these peeps have been cooped up in the same house for weeks with the same people, and the first person they get to see from the outside world is a celebrity. And he also happens to be standing right in their living room. He was there to make the announcement that the winning team would get a special screening of his new movie The Goods. He showed a trailer of the movie which they seemed to respond to (though I would think ANY movie would look good after a month and a half of no TV, movies, or music) and then sent them off to the backyard for the start of the competition. One team was Jessie, Jordan, Russell, and Natalie; the other consisted of Jeff, Kevin, Lydia, and Michele. Chima could attend the screening as well as long as she chose the winning team beforehand. She chose her alliance Jessie’s team, and it was a good choice on her part, because after packing the most items into their car that were worth the most points, they won. Each person from the winning team was then handed «commission checks» and whoever got the highest amount got to keep it. Russell was the winner with ten grand, which he wisely chose to downplay, knowing he was already a target. Jeff’s losing team was also Have-Nots for the week. Maybe Jordan will slip him a cookie.

Later, in a conversation that caught me off guard, Chima revealed to her stunned housemates that she was once raped and almost killed by a serial killer (who was subsequently caught and put to death). She also told them about the two facial surgeries she had to undergo after the attack as a result of her injuries. I have to be honest here and say this really surprised me. Anyone who can fight through something like that and survive, and then continue on each day with a smile on her face, deserves a lot of respect. I can’t even begin to imagine what she must have gone through. And though while she has never been one of my favorites, I definitely have a newfound respect for Chima.

Anyway, back to the petty drama of the house. Natalie and Jessie continued to act as if they were sewn together, and just when it seemed like Lydia was getting some alone time with Jessie, Natalie tiptoed in and suggested they go lay on the bed upstairs together. Like a good little puppy Jessie obeyed, which upset Lydia. Seriously, I don’t know why this guy just doesn’t say to her «Nah, I’m okay here, you go by yourself.» Just once. I really don’t think Natalie would know what to do with herself. She’d probably curl up in a ball at his feet and hug his leg. This co-dependency they’ve got going on is the main reason why I want Jeff to use to Coup D’ Etat. I want him to put both Jessie and Natalie on the block so there is no choice but to send one of them home. I want to see one half of this little twosome struggle to survive without the other. Please, Jeff, for the love of all that’s good and holy – use the Coup D’ Etat on them!

Before we know it, it’s nomination time. Jessie is sweating bullets but once Natalie pulls her key I think he assumes he’s safe too. And he is. Jeff and Jordan are safe as well, and Jordan seems elated about that as she hands Jeff his key. Not surprisingly, Lydia and Russell are left on the block. Little do they know that Jeff the Wizard holds the key to their safety. Let’s just hope he doesn’t chicken out. He needs to think about his future game play, and both Jessie and Natalie are coming after him. This may be the only chance he gets to kill their alliance. Fingers crossed until next time!
