    Is Plasma TV Dead?

    Burn in is 100% real with current plasmas... in the first 100 hours of use. The word "Menu" from the OSD is burned into the top left corner of my ST30.

    Is Plasma TV Dead?

    Looking for a good Plasma TV

    I have an ST30 so it's not like I'm partial to the new ST50's, but the ST50's are brighter than the ST30's, have deeper black levels, and have a newer anti-reflective filter; hardly indistinguishable.

    Side note, but why are there no high end WMC remotes? I've tried the Harmony line, but it has latency issues and commands queue up.

    Are they seriously planning to make even wider wide screens??

    Most "widescreen" movies are 2.35:1 or 2.4:1, with the rest in between that and 1.77:1 (like 1.85:1 and 2.2:1). Disc labeling is usually irrelevant unless they list the specific aspect ratio like 2.4:1. When a widescreen movie is in 4:3 format, either it was cropped, or in the case of the Back...

    Samsung is the only oled manufacturer that uses the non-standard pentile matrix to improve red/blue subpixel life (it's proprietary). LG and others use the normal RGB pattern afaik.

    Just pulled the trigger on a no review monitor(New Asus Model)

    A 16:9 image displayed in fullscreen in a 16:10 aspect ratio must either be cropped or stretched. SC2 is fullscreen at your native resolution and does not use black bars, so its 16:9 image is cropped in 16:10 and 4:3.

    My Captivate Review

    Some of my 720p mkv's work, and some don't (audio but no picture). The ones that do work are a little jerky but watchable. edit - Tried two 720p H264 Mp4's, picture but no audio. Also tried the new Rockplayer; it stutters on anything 720p, but imo plays SD xvid avi's smoother than the default...
