    Hi all,

    I understand that plasmas needs to be run-in on low settings for the first 200 hours, is this the case for LCD also?

    Many thanks.

    Definitely not but some have said they do see an improvement in PQ after a while.

    I'd like to know too having just ordered the LG 26LX2R.

    My friends plasma had to have low contrast, brightness and colour until it was run in.

    Don't want to encourage stuck pixels now do we :thumbsdow

    The reason for running in a plasma is to prevent burn-in issues, although most new models are pretty burin-in resistant anyway. This just isn't an issue with LCD.

    apparently the twisting of the crystals becomes more efficient with time, thus giving an improved response. So I read somewhere

    i notice after spendind a few weeks using an LCD that going back to a CRT with 50/60hz refresh can be quite painful on the eyes at first glance.

    Flicker free TV is so Soft on the eyes :smashin:

    The thing I notice the most - going back to CRT from LCD - is the 'line structure'

    On LCD solid blocks of colour - are just that - solid blocks of colour whereas on CRT the line structure is always there.

    Cheers, Dave C
