Many people thought plasma HDTVs were a dying breed, but Vizio has shown otherwise. Last quarter worldwide shipments of plasma TVs grew at a greater pace than shipments of LCD TVs. Most of the increase in shipping of plasma TVs worldwide was due to the huge success Vizio has found with its 32-inch VP322 plasma TV.
Plasma HDTVs are preferred by many over LCD TVs thanks to the increase contrast ratio you typically see and better brightness. The VP322 can be purchased for a MSRP of $649.99 at Costco or Wal-Mart. The TV has a good price for the screen size and offers lots of connectivity options including three HDMI with HDCP ports, component, composite, and S-video. The set also features 5.1 surround sound out via SPDIF optical.
The set supports 1080i and 720p formats, if you have a Blu-ray player you won’t get your full 1080p resolution here. Color reproduction for the set is 16.7 million colors and the brightness is 1000 cd/m2. The typical contrast ratio is 30000:1 and the viewing angles are 178 degrees horizontal and vertical. The set features 3:2 or 2:2 reverse pull down and more. The panel life is listed at 60,000 hours.
This would be a fantastic gift for anyone looking for a moderately sized TV with great contrast at a reasonable price. Mom, dad, and the kids -- anyone would like this TV set.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
