What HDTV do I get to avoid burn-in?

Post by CityMouse »

So I’m in the market for a new fancy big TV (I'm thinking around 70"). The reason I’m buying a new one is that my current 20-year-old TV has a busload of things burned into the screen from years of gaming. I have meters in all four corners. I have the opening screen to the original Nintendo and (I think) the PSX. I have random ghosts of things that I don’t know what they are. I am really bad about passing out in front of the TV with my game paused. So, I want to buy a new TV, but I never want this to happen to me again. Anyone know what kind of TV won’t do this?  I asked Google and it gave me this, is this a good thing: http://www.dlp.com/

Newer TVS dont really promote Burn in.


Apparently they flicker really quick. However If you were to fall asleep infront of the TV.
Before you play set sleep mode so it turns off after one hour and if you dont fall asleep well press it again.

Just a suggestion.

I don't think this is any issue with the current crop of Flat Panels, regardless if they are LCD or Plasma.

This seems to only be an issue with CRT's.
Suck it down!

I was looking at some at the store, the salesman actuly let me connect PS2 to one, and all I have to say is WOW, OMG was like a 20in Dell but 60in. I want to get it, give me a little feed back if you can, before I buy.
