    My friend and I are currently locked in an argument concerning tft lifespans - I say that tft's fade gradually over a period of time especially with prolongued use - he says that tft's have absolutely no issues with longevity and heavy usage does not affect this - can anyone help resolve this before blows are exchanged?

    I think he is right - you might be getting confused with Plasma screens?

    AFAIK the only issue with TFTs is that the lamps will eventually need to be replaced.

    The backlight is usually quoted with a lifespan of 50/60,000 hours so longevity isn't really an issue ;)
