    I'm thinking about the purchase of a Plasma well that or a RP-DLP :)

    The layout of my front room only leaves one outside wall to use if I go for wall mounting.
    I'm worried about the effect the the thermal cycle could have on the panals lifespan.
    I checked the low point last winter and it hit ~10 degres.

    Does anyone think this is a puckker worry or not.

    I'd just add I've already cheched for this issue in earler posts but couldn't see any relevent threads.
    Do any of the installers on the forum have any thoughts on this?

    My plamsa has been on an outside wall since June last year with no problems, regardless of how cold it got outside.

    Normally electronic equipment lives longer in a colder env. then in a hotter one.
    Since plasmas develop quite a lot of heat don't hang them in the summer sun.
