I am considering swapping out a new RPLCD set for a plasma set while I am still in the 30-day return window. I am considering the 42" Panasonic ED set or possible the 42" HD model if the rumored price drops materialize and the price falls enough. I do have a couple questions. How hot do plasma sets become? Do they become uncomfortable to the touch or hot enough to affect the room temperature? Also, I would be mounting the set on its pedestal stand. Given how thin they are, it seems like the set could have a high center of gravity. Do they need to be secured to something, or would it be fairly stable on its stand? Thanks.
