okay, so thanks to all the input i've received and the info i've read here, i pulled the trigger on a KURO 5080HD and i'm expecting it to be delivered on Sunday morning... now here's my problem: the AFC Championship game (GO CHARGERS!!!) is at noon, which gives me NO time for any sort of burn-in! will it be safe to watch the game? or should i just not set up the KURO until tomorrow evening after the games? i really want to watch the game on a new 50" screen, but don't want to damage my new toy either!


thanks in advance!

D-Nice,


thanks! coming from you, that takes a load off my mind... i will be vigilant about burn-in for the next two weeks or so, though.


yzzub,


i would have been all about seeing the Seahawks making back to the Superbowl (they were ROBBED!), but would really like to see the Chargers and the Giants in the Superbowl... imagine the irony if Rivers beat Manning.

Definitely watch the game. Hopefully you have an HD signal and just fill up the whole screen.

Watch the game and don't worry about it (which you will). So flip around during commercials to ease your mind.(which won't really do anything)


You will watch Chargers and they will look better than they ever have before--- of course that is your Plasma doing that.. not them on the field.


Of course, I hope that I am wrong!

Not gonna happen. We'll be watching a Pats / Packers rematch on Feb 3rd. The Pats will go 19-0. I'll be watching the games on my 4 day old 5080HD. Enjoy yours too...


You guessed it. Pats fan here.

It's a shame your first enjoyment of your new panel, is going to be a mixed bag.

Sorry Chargers.

maybe not the ending i wanted, but still an amazing experience (i knew 50" was going to be a big increase over 32", but not that huge... WOW!)... i'm proud of my Chargers! it wasn't the beating that all the commentators predicted... we'll see you next year!

I cannot believe that you were actually considering NOT using your new plasma to watch the championship games.

Now tell me, does fox hd football look better than the rest, or what?

If I remember correctly, it was just the opposite last week. The NYG/GB game IS looking very good on the 5080 though!

You're right, that is a problem. To their credit, it's hard to stop perfection. Good game though, until the 2nd half



I'm watching the GB/NYG game on my Kuro 5080HD and it's all tied up 20-20. Hopefully the Pack will pull it through cuz i REALLY don't want to see another manning even have a sniff at the lombardi trophy. Bret does scare me a little bit though, but i think it would be the better matchup.


Anyways, i do actually have something to say. What settings are you using for watching the game? Right now i'm watching it on Optimum settings but it just looks dark. I just came from my buddy's house who has the Elite 720p version from last year (PRO1140HD). His just seems brighter and more rich. I could have got his TV for $500 more... i'm starting to think I should have.....


any thoughts?
