Why is it with Plasma there is this myth of a break in period?
There was never the issue with CRT, both use phosphere.
No one said about break in periods for CRT's yet also suffered from IR which would go.
Never broke mine in played video games, watched movies, no problems, but always by nature turn my brightness down below 50% anyway.
The only thing I noticed was I did have IR, but never lasted.
No one ever said CRT's needed a break in period, so what makes Plasma any different? Both almost use the same idea. CRT was analog and used Phoshere just like Plasma whereas Plasma is digtal, but both use a common screen type.
