This thread is really cool.
Panasonic Vierra TH50PX50U
Time 43B3 = 17331 hrs
Count 02F0E = 12046
I bought this at A&B sound in Edmonton before they went under. It was serviced at about 6000 hrs as far as I can guess. The tech said he had replaced "a digital board". Its the only thing I have ever purchased extended warranty for and sure enough I used it. It has ever so slight burn in from watching 4:3 TV. I can only see it when watching hockey.

Panasonic TC-P50U50
10814 Hrs
Power On Count: 5685

only about 156 hrs or so of that are ours... bought this on Oct 4th with a bad SS board for $50bux... throw another $20 ($40 with shipping) in components at it to repair the SS and voila! (The common SS failure on these is REALLY easy to fix!)

TV looks absolutely great (especially for $90!!)

Panasonic TC-P65VT60 ~ 3200 hours
Panasonic TC-P55VT60 ~ 1500 hours
Panasonic TC-P42S2 - Unknown, but I'm sure it's quite a few. This is a 2010 set and I don't know how to check the hours. I recently bought AudioDane's device and I believe it may reset the hours.

Audiodane's PCMV2 just tricks the tv into thinking it is new so that it does not apply rise to the black levels. Your hrs should still be in there.

I almost snagged one of those for $450, but I passed on it because I would like the convenience features found on the 5020FD, 111FD, 101FD. Now I regret doing so, as they are becoming harder to find.

Epson 8350 / Panasonic AX-200u / Optoma Graywolf 92" / Draper Luma 92"
Samsung 51F8500 / Panasonic P50ST60 / Vizio P502ui-B1E / Sony 50W700B
Sony S790 / Panasonic BDT-220 / Roku 2 XS & Roku 2
Sony NT5 / Samsung F550 / Speakercraft CS3 / Yamaha YAS-105

I was talking with a guy about buying his KRP 500A but i cut it off because i did not trust the media receiver thing. I went for the 500M instead. Looking back i must say that used i prefer the 500M above all other Pioneer Plasma's. It is minimalistic so less can go wrong.

Mine is a Sammy 60F8500 with 6300 hours. Great so far. I do need some "new" hi mileage settings to play with though if anyone wants to indulge me. ;')

How to identify a future projector owner, he's the kid sitting two feet from the 42" plasma.

The caps failed and I ordered a KS9800 and new caps.

The plasma went to the play room for the kids.

I'm going to give you the lead for Samsung. I don't think andy a is going to be able to prove the 59000 hrs. Here's the leader board:

Panasonic 25483 by VA_DaveB replaces 21467 by Moeman66
Pioneer 29659 by Mathesar
Samsung 17266 by oom
LG 8114 by webhype
Fujitsu 19050 by walter dark

My 42" 9631 Philips has light bedroom duty the last few years. Bought in 2006, I put about 2,000 hours a year on it until I got a larger TV for the living room. Now it adds a few hundred hours a year, sometimes less (one year I think it was 50 hours). Hours are at 8782 as of today.

My 50" 9631 Philips that replaced the 42" was putting on about 4,500 hours a year until it suffered a (fixable) glitch (but not yet fixed) in May 2015. Has about 22,000 hours of use but frozen since May 2015 as I haven't freed up time to take the back panel off and fix the glitch yet. I may have thousands of hours left in both 9631's which could be years of use at their now reduced rate of use.

My new workhorse is a Samsung 5300 60" which has about 6,920 hours of use. Puts in about 4,400 hours annually or over 80 hours a week (I work from home and CNBC is on alot ).

So far, 3-for-3 with my past plasma purchases in my book. Hopefully the next technology I choose works as flawlessly.
