A lot of big standing outside-
Box retailer, you will see customers rolling TV on their cars.

Panasonic\'s inch plasma price is only $1,100.
Eliminating the myth about the plasma group in the early stage of plasma has been bothering the problem of image burns --
High power consumption and relatively short display life.
But these problems have been solved in today\'s scenario.
For example, Panasonic\'s plasma panel provides a life span of 100,000 hours before the image is darkened to 50% of the original brightness.
If you watch 4 hours of TV every night, this milestone will not be reached for 68 years.
In terms of picture quality, the plasma TV is still the benchmark and will usually reach a higher black level (
