LG 60PB6900 60″ 1080p 600Hz 3D PLASMA HDTV Review

Plasma TVs still deliver some of the best images of any current TV technology available. I’m personally still a big fan of plasma displays and have come to appreciate the very accurate and natural images they produce.

As many of you already know, plasma TVs will soon be a thing of the past with manufacturers discontinuing production on this great technology. Panasonic stopped production earlier this year. Samsung recently announced they will stop production later this year.

This will leave LG as the sole manufacturer of this technology. However, there is word in industry that LG will soon follow and end plasma production.

So in the meantime, these displays are still readily available. One of these is LG’s 60PB6900 and is the topic of this review.

Vizio Sound Bar 

Today’s flat panel HDTV’s feature slim and elegant designs that fit nicely into our home decor while displaying beautiful high definition images. However, most of these flat panel displays are lacking in one key area of performance… and this is sound quality. An ideal solution for this audio deficiency is the addition of a sound bar.

Vizio, one of several  manufacturers of quality sound bars, provide some of the most popular products on the market including their best selling S3821w-CO 38″ 2.1 Home Theater Sound Bar, which is the focus of this review.

HDTV Add-Ons: Choosing a Sound Bar and Surround Sound System

Bose Solo 15

Bose Solo 15 TV Sound System

HDTV’s have become the norm for most U.S. households. And according to research done by the Leichtman Research Group, 75% of U.S. homes have at least one HDTV.

The majority of these televisions are likely to be of the flat panel variety. This design leaves very little space for audio speakers that are able to produce full bodied high quality sound. In fact, most flat panel HDTV’s produce mediocre or poor sound quality.

However, you do not have to live with this inferior sound reproduction. Two options for better sound include sound bars and pre-matched surround sound systems, also known as Home Theaters in a Box (HTiB).

First it was Panasonic, who announced late last year they would no longer manufacturer plasma TV’s and eventually stopped production in March of 2014. Now, according to multiple reports, Samsung  announced on July 1 the company  is ceasing production of PDP TV’s due to falling demand. Samsung will end production on November 30, 2014. So expect huge discounts and a rapid sell-out of Samsung plasma’s this Christmas.

Child Safety – Preventing TV and Furniture Tip-Overs

The safety and well-being  of our children is a top priority in our lives. One area we desire to make safe and secure for our children is in our homes.  This becomes extremely important when we have infants and toddlers to keep safe. As parents and guardians we strive to keep all hazardous chemicals and other items that can be a danger and safety hazard, kept secure and out of reach of their curious little hands.

One area many of us may not think of, or over-look as being a safety hazard to our children is our furniture and TVs.

Samsung PN64H5000 64″ 1080P 600Hz Plasma HDTV Review

Samsung H5000 plasma

Plasma HDTVs have enjoyed a long and great run as one of the best display technologies ever made. And since Panasonic announced  at the beginning of this year they would no longer be manufacturing plasma TV’s,  came as a disappointing announcement  for consumers and enthusiast  such as myself who really enjoy and appreciate the excellent picture quality these displays produce. So with Panasonic out of the plasma game, that leaves only LG and Samsung as the only major manufacturers of this technology.

Samsung has carried over its 2013 HDTV line-up and has only introduced one new model for 2014 which is the PN64H5000 and is the topic of this review.
