I just bought the same TV set and the guy at Bestbuy told me that this TV will not have the same problem of burn in compared to older crt projection sets. I'm not sure if it's true. I'm having my TV service this week due to a slight tilt on the picture (noticable when FBI warning on begining of movies and end credits).I'll ask the service tech about this burn in question.

One of the reasons I went with the Samsung DLP was because it is allegedly impervious to burn in. I had read that CRT's and LCD's were susceptible to the problem. But, I recently read that LCD's (the GWIII was specifically mentioned) are only slightly more susceptible than the DLP, and not nearly as susceptible as the CRTs. It confirmed what has already been said here. If you leave a static picture on for VERY long periods of time, over a VERY long period of days and months, you might have a problem. But, with ordinary use, things should just be fine. KCarlile has it right. Teach your child not to pause a game. So, relax and enjoy your quality TV set.

One of the things you DO have to be careful of is watching too much TV in 4:3 mode with the black bars on both sides of the picture. If you watch in that mode ALL the time, it could cause the screen to age differently to the point where you can notice where those black bars have been.

Assuming, from your screen name, that you are female, may I say it's nice to have a little feminine input around here. I've been suffering from an overdose of testosterone on this forum. If you are male, please forgive me.

Sounds like a good tv, what sound system are you running with it?

...and you thought $4k was the end of your expenses

I have an RCA 5.1 500w sound system. I'm new to this home theater stuff. Everything I know about TVs, I learned in the last 3 weeks. I am female by the way.

Well welcome to Axiom. I'm currently at the stage where the more I learn; the more the more I realise just how little I know.

Don't hang out her too long. We'll talk you into replacing that RCA Home-theater-in-a-box setup

"I am female by the way."

Whew! I'm relieved! I had visions of a 300lb. hulk ready to put my lights out. Anybody, other than me, old enough to remember "A Boy Named Sue"?

sorry to break the good run on this post, but I really notice on this board how quickly members clamour to help out a female boarder! This was probably one of the fastest growing posts in a long time. Ah, we're just men after all!

Hey, I waited 25 posts before diving in. You're right though..when I ask something I could die before I get a response!

Actually this board is generally wonderful. I posted about the VTF-2 and 3 over on the HSU forum and I've had two responses..and the first was myself complaining about having to talk to myself.

Then the answer I got wasn't really answering my question.

Perhaps I should check out SVS
