Default Plasmas

I was wondering why people play games on plasmas if they cause burn-in.

This question is all based upon what I've heard. I know nothing about plasma, and don't even know if games cause burn-in on plasmas.

Scotmi1 used to play games on a piece of **** projection CRT and it got some burn-in from it. Projection TVs sucked.

However, I am sure Scotmi1 now has several top-of-the-line HDTVs.

Yesturday night my buddy played MLB 2K7 for 7 straight hours on my plasma display and there was some major burn-in caused as a result, I'm talking to where lettering stuck on the screen had turned pink. Thankfully due to its Burn-In Protection technology, let it run through a series of Signal Pattern motions in prevention of causing pixel burn and all is good, no permanent damage.

Oh god. I came in just to read the new cox-man thread and was ambushed by ridiculousness. It came out of nowhere! Now I am choking to death on it.

It only took 7 hours to get burn in? That's crazy. Before our current DLP set we had a rear projection crt Panasonic and it took about 5 years for it to ever have burn in on the sides from watching 4x3 shows with the black pillars. We played games all the time on it for hours and the news ticker thing at the bottom of the screen on the FOX News channel was on screen a lot.

That's just strange to me that you could get burn in that quick. Also strange how you could get rid of it just as quick.
