    Putting up with? CRT's still have some of the best contrast ratio's around. It's also the best inch/dollar cost as well.

    I bought a Samsung PN50650 50" Plasma. It's an awesome tv. Here's the link from cnet.com
    http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-t...in;contentBody

    The cool thing about new Plasma's is that now they come with new setting for video game players. The plasma I've got has a setting for video game burning pixel replacement...or something like that. I read it in the manual book. What it does if by any chance you see any burn images on the screen, you can use the setting to either reset / replace the pixels.

    Also, a friend of mine is a video game addict. He would play 10 to 14 hours a day on his JVC 42 ince Plama TV. This was when they just came out. He paid over $5k for it, and it never game him a problem for 6 years. They just got a new TV now and got a LCD. He said he never had a problem with burn in images. He stated the tv just burned out completely lol after 6 years.

    I was going to buy a LCD, but the plasma has better graphics for movies, which is what I watch most of the time. My g/f only plays about 1 to 3 hours if she can a day. If I can get at least 4 years out of this TV, I will be happy

    If you're from the UK, enjoy it whilst it lasts.
    I read somewhere they're meant to be banning them soon.

    Poor you

    I read that burn-ins are quite rare and only occur on programmes which have a permanent logo in the same place in the corner.
    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but Im just not close enough to get the job done.

    I have been playing three years plus on my Hitachi plasma! No lag issues at all, plasma is more advanced technology than lcd. I see much more pixelization when I view lcd sets. As for burn in, no way. The tv has burn in protection always on, and I turn the wii and my other consoles burn in protection to double safety.

    Burn in happens when you leave a static image on the screen for too long. So, if you leave your game on Pause for hours on end or at the start menu.. it might happen.

    I don't know about the Wii, but the 360 has an anti-burn-in feature where the screen goes dim to help prevent that.

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.
