well if that is the case then I am in serious trouble with my set...seriously, you don't need to break in your tv but it is ENTIRELY up to you and how you wish to do it. If you think about it, what really is the purpose of "breaking in" a tv. I can understand a car with the 1st thousand miles rule, but a tv? (ok-my flame suit is now on) anyway, even Samsung states that their plasmas DO NOT need a break in period...See here CLICK PAGE 2 http://www.samsung.com/us/support/fa...Type=D&vType=R
anyway, like I said, enjoy your set....when you set it up the 1st time, just make sure to pick home mode and not the store mode(i believe thats what they called them) as the store mode is set for torch settings....But I would lower the contrast/brightness to say 50-75% for the 1st month but even if you do decide to set them high to watch a movie, then do it and enjoy it! later
