    They are generally considered a budget buy, not really for someone with the intent of actually paying too much attention to what's on it - aka HT. More a business/conference display.

    Brightness and contrast are both very low by current standards.

    I wouldn't use this for anything other than business, and even then I'd probably want something better.

    The thing is there are only a few real maker of Plasma out there and the key is in the Pixel Array. Let us assume there are about 4-5 real manufacturers. Then these maunfacturers sometimes sell the technology to others to make more money.

    Sometimes the ones that are really cunning sell previous generation technology cheaply to other companies.

    Others sell virtually the complete unit and change the logo. This is called Badge Engineering. What we have here is one of these scenarios.So whose screen is it? It is most likely an old NEC as they use 853 x 480. Is it worth buying? Search the web for used bargepoles before reaching for wallet.

    AS mentioned above,The brightness is way down and also likely is that the contrast ratio is also poor. This was the achilles heel of early plasma technology.
