When it comes to buying a plasma TV, you have to be an informed consumer. Keep in mind that the cheapest TV that you buy is more than likely going to break down sooner rather than later. There is current research that highlights how branded products such as Panasonic and Sony outperform the cheaper non branded TVs that are available on the market.

The brand names can change with the seasons.
