    Brightness or contrast, which one has more negative impact on the lifespan of the plasma display?

    Some say it's the brightness that'll shorten the lifespan if cranked up to the max. Some say it's the contrast.

    So, which is it? Which is MORE harmful when maxed?

    Brightness I should think, overall. Screen 'wear' is caused by the phosphors 'burning off', which they do with bright images. High contrast might wear the phosphors unevenly, which is bad news, but then you would be sensible with static images wouldn't you. Maxing either of these adjustments does your picture no favours at all. After ISF calibration on a decent screen both of these settings are pretty close to the centre point.
