You can relax about the temprature.. Remeber that these screen at sears are playing 24/7, they have cranked up brightnes, contrast and running in torse mode.. And they are running in a bad air room with no ventilation.. I can asure you that the screen would never get that warm in your livingroom if you have calibrated it good. The power consum on a calibrated tv is much less than a tv at sears...
Any other that wants to share their toughts on this?
Anyhow.. This is a owner tread.. There is another tecnikcal tread for this discussion
