I was remotely considering one of these, but after reading the actual tested numbers, the reduction of current consumption was no where near as much as they claimed.
So you want to be "green" because of all of the pseudo science and faulty information given by the misinformed, including the bogus man made global warming claims?

Shows your lack of intelligence level. Must be a Republican. You probably think Bush Jr. was the greatest president we ever had.

Don't need to be assessing others intelligence level. Loves has shown plenty of intelligence in his posts. Don't confuse intelligence with ideology beliefs.

You really need to step back and look at the big picture. Multiply the reduction of energy (natural resources) by the number of devices in use around the world and then tell me how little it means.

Green is in (if it not too late already).
I have a problem when what I believe is junk science is used to get people to spend more money for a most often inferior product to "go green".

Something is wrong when scientists say that every virtually every weather situation is because of "global warming".

They claim if it is hotter than normal it is global warming. If it is colder than normal they say it is due to global warming also.

They say if it is wetter than normal it is global warming, but also if it is dryer than normal it is because of global warming too.

They say if we get less snow it is global warming, but lo and behold they make the same claim if it snows more also.

Just the fact that they claim ANY weather phenomenon is caused by global warming tells me that they are full of you know what. These scientists are working off of grants and so if they want to keep getting the money they must find a way to keep finding a way to justify that grant money each year.

In Europe the gov'ts have used "global warming" as an excuse to tax the citizens ridiculous taxes and it seems these people bought it hook line & sinker. Why does it cost about 4x the money for gas there? Because they want to get the tax money and global warming is the bogey man to get that revenue.

Is it getting warmer on this planet? In some places yes, but in my area of the Northeast it has been cooler over the last decade on average. Also consider that the planet evolves whether humans are on this planet or not and has done so even before people were on this planet and also got warmer even before man had electricity and burned fossil fuels. How do they account for this?

Now I agree that it is a good idea to save money by not using more power than necessary and simply turning off one light/lamp will pretty much offset the energy cost difference of getting the unquestionable superior PQ of plasma over LCDs. In fact much more money is saved by choosing plasma over LCD because for same screen sizes plasmas are cheaper than a comparable size LCD alone so it is actually cheaper in the long run to buy plasmas even if you don't turn off one light/lamp to offset the energy cost difference.

Next they will be telling everyone to buy smaller TVs because of global warming and will expect people viewing 15 feet away to get a 22" TV for "the cause".

I only drive around 3,000 miles per year with my car so I am already doing much more than my share to lower MY "carbon footprint". How many miles do YOU drive a year? Pollution from autos is THE number 1 pollutant into our atmosphere and they say the single biggest possible cause of "global warming".

They want to help lower the carbon footprint world wide? Stop letting China be excluded from having limits with any agreement like the fatally flawed Kyoto Accord. Since they are the #2 polluter and are expected to be the #1 polluter within the next 4-5 years, it is totally ridiculous that they can be excluded from any such limits if they REALLY want to lower emissions.

Comments as that show absolutely no intelligence. There is more than enough actual proof his idiotlogy has no merit.

Just because this might inconvenience him somewhat, or more likely it might cost him more (the real issue), that doesn't mean it is hogwash. Attitudes as that that have the narrow minded, selfish, self centered, with the 'what's in it for me' mentality behind it and only add to the problem. Just because he lives where the temperature dropped below the so called 'norm' for a few days doesn't mean his warped opinion holds any water.

Hmmm, name calling and narrow sighted vision...Please get real. If you don't like others ideas, ideals or opinions just say so but resorting to labeling, name calling and the such is absurd and shows something about you...Sorry but I have chosen not to drink that Kool Aid.

To get this thread back on topic. I think we all agree that LCD/LED ownership has some advantages....bright room enviroment, slightly less power consumption, plug and play ease of ownership.

Plasmas excel for videophiles that strive to get "the best" out of the video viewing experience.

All agree say aye...

All oppose say nay........

AYE. Except that I would argue that the current plasmas still beat LCDs out of the box.

Not the plasma you returned to the store, cause it sucked!


What TV, and remote is this? I love the thin bezel, but can't figure out who the manufacturer is.

Thanks in advance

That was a Sanyo 720p plasma and it was 2 years ago. I meant the current plasmas from GOOD plasma mfg. I do not include Sanyo, Insignia in that group. Who could?
