I have checked all my local best buys. They are gone!! I have one store called video only in my area left to check. Yarrgh.
So my samsung plasma has developed horizontal black lines. It has been happening over the last year. However, I figured I would wait until super bowl time to pick up a new plasma. My Samsung is only 6 years old this year.. pretty pissed about it dying so early. The repair shop said it wasn't worth buying. Well I always regretted not picking up a panasonic.. so I went shopping for a shiny new panny. They are all gone! So then I looked up and found Panasonic was...
Put one on the power cord near the tv and save the other for any other video cord (I.e. HDMI) that doesn't have one. They reduce interferenc.

So far this only shows more people own panasonics.
I have read the consumer reports numbers, but was curious to do my own informal poll. I currently own a Samsung that has been repaired once and now out of warranty needs to be repaired again (though I won't do it). If your plasma is defective and out of warranty please check needed to be repaired even if you have NO intention of repairing it. If own multiple plasmas you can check multiple boxes. I am curious about how Plasmas have held up in general and which brand...
