My friend has 50" plasma screen + XBox 360 and is very concerned if XBox 360 will burn the screen. So I need some advise if he can use the Plasma Screen for gaming on XBox???? The screen is expensive and he doesn't want to ruin it. So I NEED YOUR OPINION PLEASE!!! This is an immediate concern.

Also, if he buys those 19" wide screen, will the XBox 360 work perfectly at that resolution???? I meant the image won't be distorted or out of sync. etc

Thanks
Sandeep

All consoles are safe to use on plasma TVs as long as you don't leave a static image on it... that basically goes for anything on plasma or projection TVs.

Yes, but make sure to buy the VGA Cable for the system. Some LCD Monitors don't make it look good over component.

Don't get freaked out if you see a "ghost" image after playing, it's usually temporary and will go away after an hour or two. Once the TV has gone through it's initial "break in" period, burn-in shouldn't be an issue.

I'll second this as well. I own a 42" Phillips Plasma and used to game Halo/Halo 2 for hours. The HUD would create a ghosted image that would go away almost 15 minutes of watching normal TV.

It's still possible for games with a static HUD to give it burn in. AFAIK plasmas burn in easier than CRTs do.

LCoS, DLP, and LCD RPTV are all projection televisions with zero burnin possibility. The only projection TV that can burnin is CRT RPTV.
