Somehow I think he left some words out, but I can't think of any that would make any sense.

A high percentage of first time posters here tend to be spammers.
Usually they just want you to click their links.

If they are spammers I try to get them. No harm in his post, but the link in the signature is a no no, so it was removed the day of the post.

Care to mention what parts of that statement were based on "hype" and "myths"? From everything I know, it seemed pretty accurate. But if you could illuminate the facts, as you see them, perhaps we would all be benefit. As it is, you really haven't added anything to the discussion of the issue.

There are a at least a few half-truths which are more relevant to plasmas of 4 or 5 years ago than to today's sets.

Burn-in is pretty much non-existent in current plasmas unless you abuse the set. Temporary image retention is possible but still fairly rare on todays' plasmas. Energy consumption of the latest plasmas is only a little bit higher than LCDs and may actually be lower, depending on how the set is adjusted and what is being watched.
Power consumption in plasmas is variable and depends on the brightness and color intensity of the material being watched. LCD sets generally use the same amount of power regardless.

Current plasmas work well at much higher altitudes than those of a few years ago and only people living above 7000 ft should have any concern. Some plasmas work fine at altitudes up to 9000 ft. If you don't live in New Mexico or Colorado, you shouldn't have to worry about plasma.

Plasmas do not contribute enormous amounts of heat to a room unless you have poor or no air circulation.

Motion handling in plasmas is very different than for LCDs so things like 120 or 240hz refresh rates are irrelevant to plasma. Plasmas don't have LCD's motion problems.

Many plasmas work perfectly fine in illuminated rooms as long as you are not shining direct sunlight on them. Most TVs or whatever technology don't look their best (or even very good) in brightly illuminated rooms.

Okay, just a little twist - What is better, LCD, Plasma or LED?
