I've had my Pio for almost three years and never factor any of that in - yet not one ounce of burn in.
yeah .. its really a minimal concern these days ..
some people prefer to take precautions for peace of mind though ..
peace of mind is a valuable thing ..
im not too worried about it tbh ..
i will probably play and use my tv however i like once its broken in with little regard to burn in ..
thing is .. life is short .. and so are these appliances .. eventually you will get a new one .. they wont last forever .. so aside from being abusive (leaving same image on screen for days for instance) just try to enjoy them ..
its just a tv ..
ive actually decided to keep mine ..
i can live with the uniformity issues ..
they really only bother me on xbox or ps3 menu screens .. i can live with that ..
i was just in a bit of a slump yesterday right after i got the tv .. im over it ..
i will not be sending back a 3rd tv to amazon ..

both my gt25s buzzed very loudly .. from any distance it was audible even with tv volume on ..
my st30 still buzzes but the buzz is much more subdued and with tv volume on i rarely notice it at 7 feet unless im trying to hear it ..
i would say the decible level is at least half of what it was on the gt25 if not better ..
