Summary: This is a great TV. Great colors, great apps, phenomenal blu ray playback. However, the Pandora app does not always go into screen saver mode. If you leave it playing for a few hours and it doesn't initiate the screen saver, you can expect some burn-in from the white bar with the Play/Pause buttons. I don't know if there is a way to electronically "wash" the screen via software, but until then, the panel has some pretty significant burn-in.
Summary: What i don,t like about this tv 60" is it only has digital audio out none in, so i hadto buy a digital to analog audio box, for $80.00 Just to use my bose system 1999 It would of been just that easy to add analog audio in jack, Also i have picture jumping at top of screen, And it does put out a lot of heat.
Summary: I can assure you I did extensive, time-consuming research in various forums and review sites before making this purchase to check if burn-in was still an issue for plasmas. Even a well respected podcast proclaimed plasma issues have been virtually eliminated. The consensus is that plasma is better for gaming than LCD. Well, plasma may have better response times and less lag in general, but burn-in is still an issue, and it's not covered under the warranty.
