Plasma had a major issue with burn in of data/logos that were on the screen for long perios of time. CBS and FOX replaced their studio monitors (the ones you see beind Coric and Shepard ) every 90 days due to image burn in.

I remember when Panasonic introduced the first 30 in Plasma back in 95 (at $30K a pop) and they said it was great image but they had a small problem...well they never figured out how to lick it.

Not to mention Plasma sets draw major watts even when off and add close to $300 a year to your electric bill.

I like my LCD Phillips and I cobbled up a toy that can pan and tilt the set to face whatever chair I am sitting in and thus no off angle problems.
Anyone whose ever watched a panning shot on a plasma display knows that they were always shit, and any promises to the contrary by any manufacturer were damned lies.

Don't know how I could have misread that...... If he is comparing LCD vs DLP as an HDTV platform, he forgot to say it... You are reading things into his post....

And yes, plasma is predominantly avalible in larger models. Larger usually=more expensive... More expensive=high end.....The cheapest ones I have seen start around $700..... That is "high end" as far as I am concerned....

DLP uses a series of mirrors, lenses and filters to make the picture, but the initial light source comes from an LED..... What they do with that light after it is produced is where the technology gets interesting.... So, yes, it is LED based......
Actually, I believe that LCDs cost more per inch than do plasmas. I haven't done the math, but I have always noticed how much more (per inch) my LCDs are than comparable plasmas. That's what I call "high end!"

Don't believe everything you think
