My living room has one of those decorative windows that allows sunlight to fall on my plasma screen. Is this known to be a problem ?
I have put the synthetic sunscreen plastic foil on the window glass, so that the intensity of the sunrays are greatly reduced.
Is it known that the sunlight damages the plasma screens
To my knowledge it won't damage the screen, only make the picture horribly washed out.
While I own several plasmas and much prefer them to LCD, if you have alot of sunlight in the room (esp right on the screen) and / or window or light sources behind your viewing position (reflections), you should consider LCD, IMO.
"washed out" only while viewing with the sunlight falling on the screen right ?
Once the sunlight is gone, the picture will be back to what it should be right ?
Its been a while since I looked at the LCD vs Plasma discussion. ( I bought my Pioneer Plasma 3 years back )
Are you saying LCD is brighter than Plasma so as not to be affected by the direct sunlight ?
I somehow thought Plasma is the brightest.
Wow, if you are right that is a new piece of info for me.
