Question for those who have read this far:
Does anyone really strap the pedestal to the furniture top and tie the tv to the wall to keep it from falling over (as described and shown in the manual)?
I think the strap is overkill unless you have small children or live on the west coast where you get all those darn earthquakes.

3) is it true i must turn everything down for the first 100 hours?
The transparent logos are nice. Burn-in is absolutely impossible from those.
The picture above gives a good idea of what a plasma might look like if you you only watched letterboxed programming.

The tv defaults to vivid on all inputs out of the box. This should at least be changed to the standard setting, but you probably already took care of that. As far as post break-in, If you want the best possible picture you want to get the tv ISFed which will be in the ballpark of $400 but it is money well spent. If you don't do that many people use AVIA or DVE to adjust the settings on their tv.

I would like to adjust the overscan and I think you can in the service menu, but when I looked at it I had no idea what anything in the menu was so I just left it alone because its not worth messing with setting in the service menu.
I get the letterboxing with my first gen PS2 as well. It does not matter what game I play all of them don't fill the screen even after changing the setting to 16:9. I moved it back to one of my older CRTs. I hope this is fixed for the PS3. I am guessing it will with the HD resolution.
