I believe the comment I was referring to is in this thread.

A seller has one new ZT60 left on Amazon he has up for $6,500.

Pretty ridiculous. I'll bet he gets some person with the disposable income to buy it.

That's stunt pricing. I'd be surprised if anyone bought it. IMO it's not even a very good value at the $4,100 MSRP.

I game with an xbox 360 using the THX cinema mode, contrast at 50 (down from factory default 60). This is the mode I watch everything in because it is the most color accurate to my eye. I do get some IR, but it is not visible with normal content (just on solid color images). It goes away after a few hours of non-game content. If I ever get a cal, I'll use the pro mode and enable pixel orbiter. In the meantime I reduce HUDs when I can: Some games (eg. Diablo III) allow you to dim or control HUD opacity. Other games (eg. Borderlands II) allow you to shift the HUD around somewhat. So in that case I do a manual pixel orbiter by shifting the HUD every couple hours of play.


The key to dealing with IR is varied content. My kids watch a lot of cartoons, which gets rid of my gaming IR. But if IR freaks you out, gaming on the ZT may not be a good idea for you.


I've not experience permanent burn-in. But I only game 2-3 hours at a time.


Don't forget to engage game mode, which cuts down your input lag. Have fun! Awesome TV. Love gaming on it.

I'm thinking about maybe buying larger case fans and mounting them on the *outside* of the set, on the bottom part, to boost flow.

I also notice a blotch that starts showing up after several hours now on the *right* side of the screen. It is *directly* over the hot spot. Running the screen wipe or alternating several red green and blue full screen IRE patterns seems to lower it some.

Any other way you can think to get cooler temps without opening the set?

Anyone hear of repair shops or techs putting in stronger fans? Two fans for a plasma seems not enough... my previous 2008 Panasonic had 4.

The ZT uses less power than my Kuro so maybe it doesn't need so much cooling. Doesn't seem to give off that much heat to me.

Yeah, I agree. My 65" ZT is cooler than my 50" Samsung A550.
