How long do plasmas last? I have a 50PK550, and the specs say 100000 hours. Is there any truth to that?
I'm probably gonna use my TV until it breaks. I'll probably use it as a main TV for 10ish years, or whenever 3DTV matures, or 2160p arrives. Then I'll move the TV to my bedroom and use it for another 10ish years. When I upgrade my main TV, I'll move the old main TV to my bedroom and move the 50PK550 to another bedroom. After another upgrade, the trickling continues, and then my 50PK550 (if still alive), will arrive at its last stop at the kitchen as a TV.
Any chance it'll last that long? I have a 20'' CRT from 1968 and I don't think I've yet to see a CRT TV that can match its picture quality. I don't even know how.
Also, I've heard of some gas for plasma TV, and that affects its lifespan. Can anyone explain what it is, and how it affects the lifespan? Thanks.
