    Hmm... nice ideas, so I suppose if I went out and bought a new plasma and screen burn did occur - I'm pleased to hear there's always the option of using it as a large chopping board.. :)

    Any other ideas?

    Anyone know if Panasonic cover coffee stains in the warranty for their new 42" coffee tables ? last thing I need is the missus moaning that the stains don't come off, they are there for permanent! -- although I'm told that permanent stains on coffee tables are a thing of the past, its not an issue at all with the new Pannys... apparently. :D

    Apparantly you can get rid of the coffe stains if you cover the coffe table with coffe of different shades. Remeber that its not coffe stains that are a problem but coffe retention. :D

    You need to be careful not to get screen burn if you put coffee cups on it

    Great, I'll have to go ahead and buy the new 42PE50 coffee table , will also get Nescafe to send over someone to professionally calibrate the new table to give me the best possible cofee drinking experience, I can't wait ! :)

    All I need now is a HDMI enabled coffee maker, IXOS branded coffee mug (or would you guys recommended QED ? ) and lastly, im thinking should I go for the PE50 or should I go for the High definition PV500 coffee table - bearing in mind that Nescafe are due to release their forthcoming 1080i coffeee beans ! then again I might go for Kenco's 720p instead, apparently it tastes smoother !

    Hmm.. I prefer my cofee to be progressive, rather than interlaced. :D

    lets see how the manafacturers cope with the new type of screen burn weve created
    "mug ring burns"

    make sure your new plasma coffee table has HDMI! gota be future proof what wud u do without the new HDMI: Hot Drinks Managment Implement

    My gf uses my plasma as a mirror and likes to dance in front of it for some reason. Use it as a dance mirror.

    in fact do that but then put a tiny badge on it and sell it on ebay as a working model with built in pvr, unfortuantly the pause has stuck on and needs a factory reboot and offer no refunds ;)

    oh yes thisl work for some poor sucker hehehehe

    and if they say "but its just a picture stuck into it" just say no it looks like that coz it needs regassing! honest :rotfl:

    Well depending on if you have a large dog or not (Great Dane/Irish wolfhound).It would make a splendid dog flap for the back door. Although maybe a bit dangerous with an old panasonic panel, as the black levels are so good the dog may suffer injury whilst coming into the house at night. :rotfl: :D

    awesome!
    i think somebody close to maw whos half decent at diy should turn it into a coffee table for maw to display in his store,
    i can imagine him now doing the sales pitch "have a seat, well to prove how good the panny is at withstanding screen burn i will now place my boiling hot drink on to this table! see not a mark"

    You'd have to open it up and pour out the shards of glass, it looks a bit sorry! It was delivered smashed to one of our esteemed mods.
