    Panasonic is describing the new 7-series as burn-proof compared to the older series.

    How much truth is it about the whole thing?

    Is the old 6-series much more easier to burn than the new 7-series?

    Well maybe i put it wrong, they said just that they have made them more secure against screen burn.

    Panasonic say the Phosphors they use in the 7 Series (along with improvements to the screen saver modes) make a 7 Series more resistant to permanent image retention than a 6 Series; I doubt this is very relevant to 'TV' users.

    These features will be of more use to someone using the Display as a Digital Sign.

    I've never seen a 6 Series with permanent screen burn when used as a TV so difficult to improve on that figure :)

    Best regards

    The PW6 has my vote of screen burn confidence too, I've never seen a burned one. So I do wonder how the 7 series can be better, but of course some types of commercial use are harder on the screen, but I'm not big enough to have installed an airport, so no experience. The nearest I've come is estate agents, and panasonic HD screens driven by PC's are included in my statistics.

    So in your opinion Joe/MAW are we as domestic consumers being over cautious with our plasmas, i.e. reduced contrast/brightness settings for 200 hours etc.. or do commercial users do this also?

    Keep doing what your doing - it works!

    Contrast is the killer - if you want to up your contrast levels then do it gradually and monitor for more or less image retention than you currently 'see'.

    Commercial installers (as in all walks of life) can be good, bad or down right useless!*

    Best regards

    Joe

    *As can Commercial customers - who don't always leave kit alone after its been installed!!!

    Commercial users have no interest whatsoever in the well being of their equipment, so as Joe hints, it's completely down to the installers. We treat domestic and commercial installs in exactly the same way, it works for me.
