Thank you. At least that gives me an idea of what the box will be.
So I have been reading tons of reviews on numerous websites and they all seem to agree that the picture quality is superb. I have seen it in person and tend to agree, however, I have been an LCD owner for the last 10 years and have some reservations. Maybe you guys can help calm my fears. Again, I apologize if these questions have already been answered, but there are too many pages to read through.
1. I am extremely paranoid of potential burn in problems. I play games, watch blurays and my kids watch tv...most of which have the letterbox black sections and a "Nick" logo. I also watch a lot of sports. Should I be concerned?
2. I want to do the 100 hour break in with the slides but I cant imagine having a TV just sit there for over 4 days without getting real use. Like a kid not bring able to play with a new toy right in front of them. Haha. Are the slides necessary? I will most likely do them but I am so used to opening the box, setting it up, and watching.
This will be new for me.
3. The TV looked a little dark in the store in comparison to the samsung es7100 displayed right next to it. Do plasmas lose brightness over time or is that just a standard plasma display?
4. Since LEDs don't have the burn in issues like plasmass, I have been looking into the Sony 55hx850 as well. It is about $600 more than the Panny, but thought the extra money might be justified not worrying about burn in. How does the Sony compare to the 55st50 overall?
Sorry for all the questions, but I want to be sure before making this large purchase.
