.... Was gonna pull the trigger on the GT50 ... then I read a recent review at Amazon that lead me to research this issue further .... This has be me Mega Worried!!!
I do nothing but watch sports and my TV is viewing ESPN for hours upon hours a day and the ticker and ESPN bright white logo if all these things are true will brun into my screen in No Time!
Heck ESPN even when it goes to commercials "Still" runs the ticker with the logo shining away, so that gives no time for that part of the screen to settle.
I also watch a lot of standard programs with many logos in the corners and movies as well with logos.
But I will watch sports non stop with scoreboards in one spot for the entire game ... This would be have been bad ... and I'm sure it would start to come up after my 30 day return passed and from what I read Panasonic does Not cover this issue in the warranty.
Seems like the guys who say this doesn't exist don't watch sports and programs with extended periods with logos.
I think its time to start my thoughts back in the LED realm .... I have had nothing but LED TV's and I think the quality and picture is great (this would be better but I don't know the difference now so why bother).
Damn why can't I just have tons of money any just buy the 70" Elite and be done with all this mess.
SO .... after Days and days and finally deciding this is the tv for me .... where do I go now???
I think with viewing programs Plasma and IR / burn-in is just way to risky on somethings thats a couple thousand dollars.
