For those of you who have 1,000 or more hours on your sets, have you noticed a greater susceptibility to IR? I'm asking because there are reports in the ST60 forum that highlight a developing pattern of the loss of IR resistance somewhere after the 500 hour mark.
Regarding the panel heat related topic (ST v. VT/ZT), I've read accounts where the ZT was noticeably hotter to the the touch than the ZT. Does anybody know the nominal operating temperature of each 60" model? Personally, I prefer passive heat dissipation over fans (moving parts) in electronics, but I may have to reconsider and opt for the VT (supposedly runs cooler than ZT) if I go with the 60" model.
Your thoughts and comments are appreciated. Thanks.
