I was talking about burn in.

Especially since there are far more static images involved in monitors for PCs and the like and hence more option for burning. I know that the plan might be to use it as a TV, but the market, and hence the reason for that product to exist at all, is as a monitor.
Oh I see what you mean, all I know is the television and business display companies merged in 2012 and that the pro panels carry completely differentiated part numbers despite being equal to the top consumer panels of each year (eg S/V/ZT), the only reason to keep a seperate inventory would be for warranty purposes but I might be wrong

On another note I have just discovered a method to disable ABL on Panasonic 2012 monitors, might have to test this further but everything looks good so far

Panel Temperature, not room temperature?

Panel temperature. But that is proportional to room temperature.

It looks like 2014 will be the final year rather than 2015. LG will end plasma production by the end of the year.

"In reality OLED isn’t just superior to LED LCD TVs, it’s also superior to plasma but with all plasma production now stopped that comparison is largely moot. As an aside, LG did confirm during our meeting that they will cease all plasma production by the end of the year, largely because they can no longer source components. "

You have to admit that of all the plasma manufacturers (once :-), LG is in the best to position to know when it is time to pull the plug - once OLED is on it's way towards achieving plasma-like prices, plasma was going to be dead and buried in any scenario. Better motion resolution alone was never going to be enough to support an additional niche display technology. Especially limited to 1080p, sales drop to near zero.

It is not limited to 1080p; though it hasn't been and won't be developed beyond that for a while. Plasma may have had a framerate better than CRT, but if you think an OLED with inferior motion killed the technology; you have another thing coming. Perhaps the Chinese are too cheap, but shipping costs and shipping defects played a big role into the current small production phase. We can't blame just blame low framerate, high resolution content for it. Plasma's downfall was not just lack of buyers, and tech. If price to market was no object; then CRTs would still be manufactured a lot.


I still think smooth motion in video is important.

When the last plasma is produced the UN Flag should be lowered to half mast.

LCD is the worst thing in the history of the universe!

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.
