I am very new to all of these so please give me a chance. I am thinking about getting a Panasonic PV500 Plasma instead of the D500 LCD. The thing i am worried about is burning. I know this is common in plasmas but how bad does it get. I heard that it's amnly logos and black bars at the top and bottom of the screens. Do they dissapear? How long after? Is it a safer bet to go for a LCD?
