Whatever that Samsung "4K" 6500 TV is, it is not a Plasma since they stopped making them a few years ago. And none of them were "4K" either.

It must be an LCD TV, and burn-in has never...

I can confirm that the smallest 1080p Plasmas ever made were 42 inches and only Panasonic made them.

If you need something smaller than 42", then it will have to be an LCD TV.
