    I heard something on the radio about the debate between plasma and LCD TVs. The guy goes "There is actually no difference between the two, buy whichever one you want." He neglected to mention that plasma TVs die in 3 years by burning images into themselves.

    Riiight, in other words, no such thing so it's a moot point.

    I have a Pioneer 43" plasma...

    ....and it is sweet. It connects to a computer, at 1024 X 768 resolution with a frequency maximum of 70Hz. This does look pretty good when gaming Doom III. We bought one of the high-end plasma's about 2 years ago. It was around $8K, and it came with a media center that does all the automatic pull-down and conversions. It is a high definition display, although I don't get much high definition from our cable supplier (cox communications). This display is way better than the comparable LCD displays. It has more vibrant colors. Deeper blacks. You need to see both types side by side.

    1024x768 just isn't high enough resolution to be of any use. So while it might be able to hook up to a computer I wouldn't call it a monitor. So far as I know there are no plasma displays sold specifically as monitors, so then the whole idea of burn-in on a plasma isn't relevant. Screensavers were designed to protect older CRTs from screen burn in. That hasn't been an issue for a very long time now which is why I said I doubt that the next incarnation of windows will even support them. If it does it'll only be for the eye candy aspect and it really isn't necessary.
