May have the opportunity to get my hands on a Panasonic TH-50PHD5UY 50" Plasma. I had never considered Plasma before because I never was really happy with the lack of black levels nor the fact that I have actually seen burn-in damage done on these display devices. Two years ago I had the opportunity to attend a studio press event in NYC. They were using plasma monitors to display menus and DVD footage. Every single one of those plasmas has burn-in damage by the end of the day. I also have read that watching 4x3 television for long periods of time can cause burn in damage. So, my question is while considering the purchase of a plasma set, what are the dangers of image burn-in? Also, if anyone further cares to answer.... I presently own a Toshiba 57" RPTV. Do I really want to give up that set in favor of a 50" Plasma? Yes, the 50" Plasma is 1080i HD capable, but wouldn't image quality look better on a RPTV? Thanks, everyone, in advance.
