One disadvantage of plasma screen televisions that critics often point out is that the relative life of the television is lower than that of most CRT televisions. With current technology, most plasma screen televisions have between 20,000 and 60,000 hours of viewing time before they need to be replaced. There are two things that temper this information. First, plasma screen technology is new and improving, and newer televisions will have greater operational hours. Second, the tests used to predict the number of hours that a television is operational must be put on to relative terms. After all, 20,000 hours of operation means 4 hours of television each day for almost 14 years.
