Well - I suppose you're right... This one has less than 8000 hours, so I think that's reasonable for a 2008 model... As long as it gets decently bright.

I'm not a big black level guy, so those improvements on newer models aren't really important to me... And I won't be using it for movies so the 24p issue isn't a concern for me either...

I do wish the 2008 had the "neoPDP" panels - this one says 573 watts power usage!!! I can heat my room! Sheesh...

How DARE you question my ignorance!?!

Remember also this set suffered from rising blacks. I have a 50PZ85U and I put a PCMV2 on it to return the blacks to original. Audiodane just sold his last one.

I bought the 42PZ85U for a fair price. So let the plasma experimenting begin...

What is the most aggressive (best at reducing image retention) "pixel orbiter" setting? 1, 2, 4, or auto?

Thanks.

The most aggressive would be 4 but if it's been properly broken in I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I know these are some older posts but aside from replacing the P board (if I remember correctly) mine is still running strong and looks great 9 years later.

I'm about to get a free 50" S60 that just needs the A board replaced.
