If you have read alot of websites, checking into all the new television technologies, I am sure you will have discovered alot of praise for Plasma TVs. Looking a little further you may have discovered alot of these sites are in the business of selling these TVs.
Well, what you will find here is my personal experience with a plasma TV. No lies to sell it, no bullshit about this or that. Only what I saw happen with my 42″ Samsung Plasma TV.
My plasma Tv has built in pixel shift technology ment to prevent screen burn in. It was turned on and set to the recommended setting via the owner’s manual. I discovered today while trying to figure out how to fix another problem I was having. I went to the all white screen to see if the blue sploches I was seeing(I will talk of that problem more later) were burn in. I discovered the blue sploches were not burn in but that I did have burn in from a video game. I was very surprised to find this had happened. I have had a big screen rear projection TV for many years previous to this TV. I was always aware of burn in on it and therefore have always been in the habit of being very careful about it.Fact is I never left any image on my new plasma for more than 5 minutes and I got burn in!!!
So after discovering the burn in, it is needless to say but I was extremely unhappy as this had nothing to do with the other problem.
The other problem is that these bright blue splotches show up on the top left side of my screen for no apparent reason. I have tried changing to every different source(tv,video game,dvd,etc.) and they are still there. I did a search on the internet and could find nothing about this problem.
This fucking TV is less than 2 months old and I paid $1500.00 for it. Even if Samsung actually fixes the blue splotch error, the burn in will always be there. Do yourself a favor, don’t waste your money on a plasma TV. You will just be pissed off in the end!
