    as the screen does not attract dust, I'm not sure what this cleaning obsession is all about. After 4 months my screen is still spotless.

    Well you must have a very clean dust free house then :D
    The screen is not static free. after a day in use it was already collecting dust.
    I have been using a micro fiber cloth but al that does is move the dust around. A damp cloth leaves smear marks. Ekostar from these forums said that he/she uses something simualar to this. so the question still stands, is it ok for a plasma screen?. I know you have to be very carefull with what you use to avid damge to the antiglare coating and scratiching the plastic. What is recommened in the the manual just does not do the job.

    I just use a lint-free cloth and I never have static build up of dust.

    Microfibre cloth & Screen Clene.

    My screen does not attract dust, even after months. There's dust everywhere else but not on the face of the screen.

    If your stuff is made to clean telephones with it's probably a general office use cleaner. Personally wouldnt use it. Get the recommended stuff above for about a fiver and it'll last you years.

    Presumably you won't be going far wrong if you treat the screen as you would do an expensive camera lens or binoculars... or would I be presuming too much, in that the non-reflective coatings used on a domestic tv wouldn't be as durable and wouldn't appreciate a very mild alcohol based cleaner.

    From my experience with high-end optics, removing any foreign particles should be done with a blower before using a microfibre cloth.
    As a smoker, cleaning the screen will be an issue at some stage.

    cheers,
    Andy
