1. I have read posts mentioning a real concern with image burn on plasma sets. Is this more of a problem, or does it occur earlier, with plasmas than CRT RPTV's? Will watching 4:3 material in a "stretch" mode on the 16:9 plasma set prevent it?

2. Like many others, I am very interested in the new 42" SD (or ED) Panasonic set. One purported drawback with sets of this resolution is visualization of pixels. Does anyone know the optimal viewing distance for this set, at which pixels will no longer be apparent?

Thanks for your help.
