No burn at all. I belive that the burn issues were from the first Gen of Plasma's. From what I know that is not an issue any more.

I've actually found some pretty good deals on Plasmas. Hopefully they are still around come October.

Ooh, i've never heard of those before. Although come to think of it I can see it happening. Glad they aren't an issue anymore,

I play a lot of x-box and haven't had any problems with burn in. Looking at the forum link I posted above, some people have had a little from pausing their games and forgetting about them for hours at a time, but they fixed by putting their tv on a channel that had nothing but snow on it for an hour or two and that took it all out.

I was like you at first when I was considering getting a hdtv. I wanted a plasma but was worried about burn in, but after a little research found it wasn't a big concern now with them as long as you don't leave it on a static image for hours at a time. So I took the plunge and couldn't be happier with it.(just wish I could have got a bigger one)

And yes the Steelers look awesome in hd, good enough you can count the whiskers on their face.

Prices might even come down lower by then too.

I'm loyal to Sony. This is going to be my next T.V. (LCD) 46" BRAVIA? XBR? LCD Flat Panel HDTV. The price is up there but the picture is AWESOME. I want the 52" though. I heard the same thing about plasma's that gaming is bad for them, unless they have made it better recentley. I haven't heard that though. You can't go wrong with any of them though.

That sounds pretty good for an LCD.

I prefer the Panasonic Plasma I have one in my family room that is a little over a year old. All of the early problems such as burnout issues have been ironed out. The quality of the pic is spectacular. I have it on the wall directly in front of a picture window and even when the sun is directly behind it there is no loss in picture quality at all. My neighbor has an LG lcd same size 42 " and there is a noticeable differnce in quality. The only other difference is he has the local cable HD (comcast) and I have Satelite.
