Has anyone had the experience of burn-in or image retention
with plasma-tv's? I have only had a LCD Bravia up to this point, no
experience with plasma. My viewing habits are that I use PS3 Netflix
a lot and my TV is on the static page with the red Netflix banner
and logo constantly on. Decided I would try a plasma tv, then began
to read about burn-in, etc. Any tips or experiences with streaming,
and static landing pages would be appreciated. Just thought I would ask
some people who would know first hand, since most of us do some streaming
and end up on that static page where the logo does not move.
Being using Panasonic Plasma 50" for 3 years, no problems with burn-in so far on graphics, friend with same TV did get burn-in on highlighted Text, left onscreen for 4 hours, now has a faint menu on screen but barely noticeable. He should of set his screen saver
Thanks for the reply. 3 years no problems sounds good to me. I have had mine now for about two weeks. Trying to be careful, realized that when using PS3 that the (Netflix) home screen powers down if there is no activity, which would lessen the chance of burn-in, at least I hope so. I got a LG 60", am enjoying it. but I think it is a little too much TV for where I'm using it right now, (should have went for a 55") Also tweaking this darn thing to get the best pic is a bitch, never had that problem with my Sony -Bravia LCD. Thanks again.
Plasma's have the most problem with this. I have a LCD and it has never shown any burn in tendencies. Haven't heard anything about LED users - anybody know?
Someday I will want a Smart, really Smart, LED or whatever delivers the best picture in the size range I want (probably 50" - I have a 42 now which is perfect with full HD/BD 1080p video, but I could probably go to a 50. Remember it's the WIDTH of the screen times 2 for minimum distance before you begin to see pixels (so my 42 is 36 1/2 inches wide). But that only makes a difference when you've got full 1080p resolution. HDTV signals are, at best, only equivalent to 1080i - and are often worse.
Having buyer's regret. Should have gone for a Smart TV. Tried a LED/LCD. Did not like the picture quality, plus while watching DVD's it started popping and shorting out, some electrical scary stuff was going on, Returned it to Vendor after about 2 weeks, took a hit for 15% re-stocking fee. The LED had large grey spots in the background which would show through on the blacks, (Night Scenes in Movies) or dark interiors, this is stuff you cannot see in the showrooms, you will only notice this stuff once you get the TV home and set it up.
