Almost every review of an LCD will also bring up the poor off axis viewing angle so it's not just "plasma fan boys" and it is a reality.

Not a problem if you don't sit off axis. In my bedroom, where my Samsung LNa650 is located, I don't sit off axis. I just enjoy a beautiful LCD display that fit my needs.

My Kuro is in my family room where the windows are always shaded, where the need for superior viewing is necessary. My plasma screen fits my family room enviornment better my LCD.

If a 150W TV is switched on, 150W of energy are "wasted" (128977,5 Kcal/h or "235 Big Maczzz each hour!!1" say it as you want), be it light, sound, infrarred... All of those watts end up warming your room.

So let me get this straight, your Sony LCD is like an air conditioner and your old Panasonic was like a heater?

Now this is getting really out of control.

Just out of curiousity what model Sony do you have now and what Panasonic did you have in the past? What size room were they in?

Like I challenge the spreaders of misinformation, if burn-in is no longer a issue with plasma, please have moderators remove the thread.

I switched from a DLP (more energy efficient than any large screen LCD) to a plasma, and notice absolutely zero difference in room temperature.

My receiver puts out far more heat than both of those displays put together, and even it's not enough to make a measureable difference in ambient temp.

And anecdotally, I was in NBC's NYC studios this weekend, and they have Sharp LCDs all over the place. I noticed that they put out a load of heat, but just like my plasma, you needed to get up close to notice.

If burn in is such a big issue to you then why did you buy a plasma?

Not all light generated will generate heat. Take LEDs for example. They are much more efficient at using the same amount of energy to produce light instead of heat vs. an incandescent bulb.

I have a Panasonic plasma and it significantly feels warmer in front and in back by the fans compared to an LCD of the same size. I also own a Panasonic LCD and it feels as warm as my plasma.

Either way though, I still don't think the warmth of the set is worth the sacrifice in PQ I would have to take by buying an LCD.
