1. The "Model" you have.
2. What convinced you to purchase this particular "Model".
After much deliberation between LCD's and Plasmas I decided on Plasmas, was gonna go for a cheaper option of a
Samsung 50" (the older series not the new ones coming out) but then I thought what the hell you only live once and went for the new LG which sounded great from some of the reviews I read about it, looks sweet too!
3. What you like best about your Plasma.
The whole schebang
4. What you don't like about your Plasma.
Potential burn in and the 200 hour run in time, specifically for my model dust sticks to it like whatsit to a whasit. Nothing else as yet but only had it only a week so something may crop up
5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your Plasma had.
1080p but then I havent got a PS3, just a 360 so no prob there, and I just love its SD picture so 1080p wouldnt be as good for SD, so it has pros and cons.
6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your Plasma.
Give detailed info about avoided screen burn, ie run in time, use zoom features, how to use anti burn tech etc, all in front of manual in big bold letters.
7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your Plasma.
How good the Standard def was, wowsers it almost looks like High def and I is not kidding thee! Although snooker and footy isnt as good as films and tv progs but hey still darn good for a 50incer at 8 feet away!
8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your Plasma.
Nothing major as yet "TOUCH WOOD!!". The dust issue again, getting VGA input to map properly although I think this is a common and unavoidable issue. Its a big lump and is a pain to move about, ruuning in time for Plasma to avoid burn.
9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Yes I think so, mine was a grand but its a well nice piece of kit and will hopefully last me for some years to come and will give me great pleasure playing Halo 3 online and some tomb raider
Plus cant wait to watch some sweet sci fi films on it too! What with real life inflation going through the roof at the mo the prices on offfer for the technology is simply superb.
10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
Im worried about burn but I decided on a Plasma as they have more life to the picture than the LCD's in my opinion and you can get bigger screens at cheaper prices too which is a big plus. I dont mind looking after it a bit more than an LCD if I can enjoy better quality pics. I will run in my plasma for 200hours minimum before playing my 360 on it and Ive turned on orbiter function and will use the white wash if needed. When I do start playing the 360 I will set lower brightness and contrast and will zoom in sometimes to alter any HUD positions on the screen, all this will hopefully prevent screen burn, if it doesnt I may well cry and bring up a little bit of sick...
