Over the years I have reviewed, compared and wrote about a wide variety of products, including headphones, speakers, sound docks, iPods and mp3 players. With Best Buy’s launch of VIVA and Home & Lifestyle, I have had the opportunity to expand my focus to include a younger person’s perspective on many of these great products as well!


  1. This Plasma is a little gem of a TV Monitor, especially for gamers and including high lighting conditions.

    The swivel base and the anti-glare coating helps decrease any reflection and unless you look for it, you don’t notice it just as on LED’s. Plasma colour quality is superior (more accurate) than LCD technology because it uses organic mineral like Phosphorous, where LCD is man-made and it’s natural colour is a deep purplish-brown.

    There are many Plasma myths that most people need to be aware of,but most of all trust your own eyes.

    Considering the price,it’s the best bang for the buck.
