Got some bad news for Plasma and having second thoughts ..... http://www.hifivision.com/televisio...lasma-tv-panel-business-end-march-2014-a.html
Avoid Plasma, you will have to battle reflections and there is a chance of Burn-in from channel logos, news ticker bar, Sports scoresheet which we watch for hours. Burn-in is not covered under warranty by any plasma manufacturer.
Apart from these issues, the low plasma sales will mean crappy support in future, So buy an LED with extended warranty for complete peace of mind.
Hello.. I have had 3 plasma tvs and I have had no such problems as mentioned... Placing the tv in a proper location takes care of the reflection part.. I'm not a insure about the support... Because the panel has been designed to last.. Like n ambassador..
Their will always be plasma bashers who have never seen or watched one.They have just watched LCD and do not know the difference in picture quality. Ignorance is bliss for them.
i agree with gautham i also have 2 plasma sets at home and PQ wise very happy. My oldest plasma is 8 years old now and is giving excellent service, very happy with the same.
Also Etios please check out Samsung 64F8500 as you can place it anywhere you want, the PQ, and brightness is better than LCD and no issues with any reflections. It performs equally well in a light room without any issues.
In the end buy what suits your eye and fits your budget don't get carried away with the salesman gimmicks.
Burn-in is not covered under warranty by ANY plasma manufacturer and its a fact!! Even the mighty 64F8500 is not covered under warranty if it gets Burn-in, though i accept that it has great picture quality.
DTH logos, channel logos, News tickr, Sports channels scoresheet and Console gaming HUD often result in Burn-in, we had examples of burn-in on this very forum ranging from low range samsung plasmas to industry leaders like Panasonic ST50 and GT50.
I guess you are confusing Image Retention with Burn-in. IR is present in almost all models, but that goes away soon after you change the channel or switch off the TV. I haven't seen any cases of burn in on this forum in the last two years.
Deny, Deny, Deny is the mantra of the Plasma fanatics, i very well know the difference between IR and permanent Burn-in.
You have missed a lot of Burn-in cases on this very forum or maybe conveniently ignored in the last one year itself, no need of going back by two years. Here are some of the links on this forums, there are more cases but i don't have time to find all:
Read pages 35-40 of this thread for few more cases: http://www.hifivision.com/televisio...-first-impressions-reviews-tweaks-etc-35.html
