The most obvious advantage to buying a flat panel television is the great reduction in size and weight over standard CRT models. A 32" flat screen TV can weigh as little as one-third as much as a CRT model of the same screen size, making it possible for a single person to carry and install a screen of significant size.
Flat screen televisions are also easier to incorporate into the design of a room, with the flexibility of sitting on a narrow stand or being mounted on a wall. Instead of having to organize a room around a large, bulky TV, the television can become a pleasant, but not overwhelming element.
Finally, flat screen TV prices have come down significantly, allowing these models to be manageable for many people who might have previously considered them a too-costly luxury.
