    Hi all
    I am thinking of buying my first plasma, a Panasonic TH42PW7B, I was wondering as the title says, do you get dead pixels with the newer models? This is one reason I have not bought one earlier. does anyone know panasonics dead pixel policy?

    Been reading this forum regularly for a couple of months, no-one has mentioned any dead pixels on a Panasonic plasma, none on my 37" PW7...

    dead pixels are an LCD phenomenon and does not affect plasmas. Plasmas do not get dead pixels...they just fade away with time... :D just kidding...it takes about 60k hours of usage before you can start noticing the fading.

    dead pixels do happen on plasma. usually getting stuck on blu,geen or red. most noticeable on light or white backgrounds.
