My CRT viewing habits have NEVER created a "burn-in". Not even on the 20 year old RCA 19 inch that current pulls duty in the kids' playroom. So if plasmas are no worse than CRT direct view tubed TVs for either burn-in or glare/reflection, then I can't see any objections to considering one. I was at a sports bar last week and they had almost 60 plasmas scattered throughout. At the bar where I sat, three TVs, side by side--one analogue cable feed, one digital SD feed and one HD 720p (ESPN) feed. I doubt the TVs were "tweaked" but the HD feed was, at a casual view, amazing, the digital SD was about what I get on my SDTV from digital SD and the analogue cable feed looked like crap (as many such stations do via my cable provider, though there are not many of them I watch, thankfully). If I can get PQ like I saw in the bar, I will be very happy (they were all Samsung plasmas, don't know the model number). I'll still look at LCD (one attractive feature of LCD is the 45-47 inch range of screen size--50 is a bit tight in my room and 42 is smaller than I'd like to go to). Anyone know why there are no 45-47 inch plasmas?
