After a long chain of passing down TVs, it looks like I will be getting a Samsung 42'' Plasma HDTV. Its the TV that the family has had in the living room for the past 2 years or so and everyone for some reason thought it was an LCD tv. So originally I had planned to get it if it was replaced and use it as my main TV/computer monitor. It being plasma obviously changes that.
From what I can tell people from on using Plasma TV's as monitors due to image retention and image burning. Does that continue to be just as big of a problem after longer use or does the risk of that go down with more use? Can that be countered with something like a really bright white screen to more or less image burn it back to neutral? I'd really like to be able to use it as a monitor if possible so looking at my options here.
