- Plasma displays are very thin. They can be mounted in places traditional CRT televisions and monitors cannot.
- Color reproduction is excellent.
- Contrast is good, although not great.
- Plasmas are now manufactured with screen sizes as large as 70″ diagonal
- Enhanced resolution display prices rival the prices of rear projection televisions of similar size
- High definition resolution (HDTV) displays are much less expensive than LCD flat panels of the same size.
- Fragile technology; doesn’t ship well.
- Black levels and detail in dark scenes are not as good as CRT or DLP™ powered rear projection televisions.
- Dead pixels can be an issue, although quality has improved as the technology has matured.
- They are a phosphor-based technology, which means that burn-in of an image can occur, and that the display’s image quality will diminish with time.
- Cheaper enhanced definition (EDTV) plasma displays have rather large pixel structures.
- Plasma displays are very heavy and usually require wall-strengthening for wall mounting.
