    I've seen a couple of these, latest one at the Smart Home show in Birmingham in April - even switched on, the reflections are, IMHO, pretty bad, certainly far worse that you'd get from a standard plasma screen.

    Philips and Samsung sell mirror plasmas, have to say having seen these setup in Selfridges here in London, the samsung was better, the Philips looked nice when it was switched off, but once turned on, it still retained the mirror finish, so had horrible reflections. The samsumng however was another story, once switched on the mirror finish disappears completely, and looks like a normal plasma, both of the screens come with a fancy picture frame type surround, so they look half decent as mirrors when they are turned off

    It is a good idea in priciple but IMO you will always loose some brightness/contrast through the film on the mirror.

    Early days yet, but a good idea.

    I was only joking.All displays like this should be viewed in darkish enviroment ..guess what if you do reflections are down to a minimum.
    On these forums we get people spending a small fortune on a scart cable or mains filter when drawing the curtains makes a bigger difference!
