I need some advice here please. A friend of mine decided to replace his Sony RPTV with a plasma screen, and he is going to sell the Sony. It is a wide screen, I don't know the model number yet, it is about 60 inches. He offered swapping it with my several months old Loewe Calida 32" tv, he said he would put it in his bedroom, and I will pay him something on top of it. His Tv is 3 years old and he hasn't even calibrated it, probably he used it with factory settings till now. I will check if there are any burn in first; and obviously won't get it if any. Is there anything else I should check except burn in? I don't have any experience with rear projections, I remember reading somewhere that they don't last too long. Can I find the total running time of the set in the service menu and what is the reasonable acceptable time? Any other thing I should look for? It looks like a very good deal since I have a very large wieving area and my Loewe is a bit small although it is a great set... This Sony is huge, I would love to have it but I wouldn't want to get a TV which will die in a short time. Any advice will be appreciated.
