I still have my 42" 2003 pan plasma in my master bed that is ran 24/7. It's only off when power is turned off. I can see it from my living room recliner and occasionally will turn a sporting event on in the bedroom to glance at for updates if am switching the living room channels to a different channel. So if watching at least three sporting events at once. It still has superior blacks and overall pq than my 70" Sharp with darbee. My 8000 series Sam 65" is the best set I've ever owned and will miss being blown away by such set after unboxing until motion/blacks can catch up from olead. Motion is huge for me since I literally watch every sport except NCAA FB. In order- golf(very tough on motion, maybe the toughest with ball flight), boxing, NCAA BB, NFL, Tennis, MLB, NBA, darts, soccer, NHL. So I get good use out of the couple I still have. Watch some on my Sony VW1100es but not as often.
RIP plasma tech and hope you are resurrected once you're qualities cannot be matched by others.
