Looking to buy a new plasma for heavy pc use, I've read the other threads on the subject, most are from 07' so im looking for some updated advice.


Is there anything BAD that can happen to the Panasonic TC-P50G20 by using it for a PC/HTPC monitor AND TV? Would be logging over 9 hours of use per day web surfing, pc gaming, other general pc use, and ~5h console gaming and television use.


Hookup would be direct hdmi>hdmi

Basically can any harm come from using this model plasma as a PC/HTPC monitor?


(sidestory of past tv)

I had a 42" Viera bought in 2008, that did exactly what im describing up until a few months back. The hdmi ports only work for ~3minutes and then the screen goes black with the "HDMI 1" up in the corner, could using it as a pc monitor have caused this?


Thanks for your time

I use my P42S2 to play movies on my TV, but don't game on it or spend extended periods of time on it. As long as you are careful with static images, shouldnt be a problem. (obviously you wouldn't want to leave a program or webpage open without a screensaver on for an extended period of time)
