The only thing putting me off plasma is burn. I know someone who recently got it bad within a few months of ownership (DVD-recorder OSD and SKY channel bar permanently visible on a white screen), so don't tell me it's a thing of the past. I like playing games and would like to hook up my PC but I know these are high risk activities with a plasma. I know all about running plasma at low settings for the first 200h but at the end of the day burn is irreversible and the manufacturers won't be bothered if I get it. It wouldn't be difficult for the plasma to "know" if it will get burn, by the amount of time its pixels have been static, and then apply measures to prevent burn (eg change colour of pixel, or move whole screen around very slowly, or move the whole screen around slowly regardless). I'm sure these mechanisms exist so which screens have them? BB PS. do any plasmas allow you to watch 4:3/2.35:1 with horizontal/vertical letterboxes, whilst preventing uneven image degradation (eg by making the black bars the average brightness of the rest of the image).
