    A. Turn off your caps lock. Nobody likes to listen to a screamer.

    B. Invest in a dictionary it will help you enter adulthood.

    C. Most plasma television video monitors will display computer
    video...but poorly. Poorly because they are carefully designed to
    display interlaced video signals per television video standards (480 or
    576 horizontal scan lines per image). Not progressive-scanned computer
    video. Some plasma televison video monitors can display computer video
    signals, but again, at television resolution, not computer resolution.
    As a test, put your eyes about 10 cm (~4 inches) from your favorite
    computer screen and note how the elements of the picture look. Now
    visit an appliance store and put your eyes about the same distance from
    a plasma TV display. See the difference? Repeat at greater distances.
    Now try all the above with any other kind of big-screen TV (LCD, DLP,
    projection, big CRT). See the difference? If the
    cheapest technology...put a video card in your computer with TV
    output...and enjoy fuzzy....

    Plasma TVs generally do a darn good job at displaying computer video, so
    long as you use their native resolution. Generally this is 720P, which
    is 1280x720 progressive scan. While native interlaced plasmas may exist,
    the vast majority of them (all that I've ever seen) are high definition

    market. They was done by sony. Now sony is sorry that they hav

    No, they were invented at the University of Illinois, produced
    by Owens-Illinois, and originally implemented as computer
    terminals by Magnavox. They were in production by 1972.

    Fujitsu bought rights to some of the patents and produced their
    own plasma panels for computer and defense use. IBM did
    too -- and later sold their plasma panel line to Photonics.

    Sony didn't enter the picture until more than 20 years later.

    They were also monochrome, lacking the technology at the time to create
    good color. Also the prototype was quite a small screen with a large
    electronics package, it wasn't until modern chips containing tens of
    millions of transistors in a single package that plasma became practical.
