Once a plasma is outside the 200hr break-in period you can use it on static images as long as it is purposed for regular TV watching for about 15-20 minutes before being shut off. I use my plasma on Netflix(granted once I've picked the movie, I go full screen), Vimeo, Dailymotion and Youtube all the time. If you are wanting to sit there and write a 50 page term paper for 7 hours...I wouldn't do that. But a couple of hours surfing the net followed by watching "some TV" and the plasma will be fine. Just give it a 200hr break in before static images(I recommend a movie you put in constant loop for 8-9 days). Yes, you can watch TV during the break in, but leave it on so the first 200 goes by in a hurry.
