I am really liking this tv and have some questions about breaking it in....can i leave the tv on for a few days to speed up the proceess or do you recommend doing it in sessions?
another question is how much does it help with image retention and burn in?
also has anyone tried this for breaking in there plasma?

Plasmas do not require "break in" other than not using torch mode for the first couple hundred hours.

FWIW, our 60ST50 was prone to Quick Onset / Medium-to-Long Duration IR until some point past 400 hours usage.

Beyond the 400 hour mark, IR onset became progressively slower, and duration progressively shorter.

Personal preference would be to keep Static Images - and especially Bright Ones - to a small percentage of screen usage for at least the first several hundred hours.
(And/or until you've determined how prone YOUR panel is to IR: there have certainly been posts from people who claim to have gamed from Day One with No Visible IR. However, would rather err on the side of safety, as opposed to Immediately launching into an 8 hour marathon....)

Currently, panel appears no more prone to IR than either of our older Panasonics: that is, could DEMONSTRATE it for someone, but it simply no longer appears to be an issue under normal usage.

Note that we do not game, nor use the panel as a Super Large Computer Monitor - YMMV Accordingly....

i just called best buy and they said they cant get the st50 anymore and however they have the UT50(for 850) and the gt50 (which i cant afford right now) , How much better is the st50 in terms of the UT50 for picture display and 3d? he said the major difference is the ut 50 has 1 less hdmi port.

The ST50 has an ar filter for brighter rooms, some like it some don't. ST50 is more adjustable in custom mode althought white balance can be adjusted in the SM on UT50. Blacks are essentially a wash.

ar meaning anti-reflection filter. The UT50 is inappropriate for a typical lighted room. But if it is a dark room the UT50 will be fine.

Image retention varies from one individual TV to another. It's possible you may have problems with image retention from gaming or you may have none.
