Is burn in really that big a deal?
I'm considering the Panasonic TH-42PA20U that's gotten great reviews and looks fantastic in person.
What's the threshold for burn in on a display like this? I'd probably be gaming for about a half hour to an hour at a time. Are there certain images (bright colors) that are more susceptible to the problem? Would simply switching to a live TV screen and back every 15 minutes or so be enough?
I've read that keeping the contrast down goes a long way toward avoiding burn in. Any other tips?
I've also heard that plasmas have features to alleviate the problem - what are they?
And what about the black bars on the sides that appear when using a 4:3 signal - any problems there?
Lastly, I know most LCDs don't have fast refresh rates, leading to ghosting and bluring in fast motion sceens. Do plasmas have the same problem? This would make a big diffference in action gaming...
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
