How Many Hours on Your Plasma HDTV ?
My 50" Philips 9631 w/Ambilight has 19,167 hours
...I got it almost 5 years to the month (November 2009) and it had 1,800 hours on it. So I've put on 17,400 hours in about 4 years and 10 months. Basically, 70 hours a week for 5 years.
My 42" Philips 9631
was relegated to bedroom duty when I got the 50" for my living room. It has just over 8,000 hours in the 8 years (Sept. 2006) I have had it.
For 3 years it was my #1
TV; but since I got the 50" it has been used sparingly. In fact, I just checked the hours and it's been used about 50 hours in the last year.
So while the 50" is starting to act its age and might need a replacement at any time, the 42" is likely to be in my bedroom for a LONG time.
