That explains why SDTV always looks so great in a PiP window! (well, one of the reasons).

The optimization (or lack thereof) on the two TVs could have an impact - see the following thread on that topic:
Also, a 50" TV is 40% larger than a 42" TV - a smaller TV always looks sharper at the same viewing distance, although many times people confuse "sharp/crisp" with accurate, which is often not the case if the TV is not properly optimized.

|bhearsum||I recently bought a PN50B540S3F, too. yermudder, how is your picture quality? My picture is not at all crisp on my PS3 or BellTV PVR, compared to a 42" Sony LCD.|

|milner_7||I swapped my Samsung for a LG 50PS70. Looks to be a better set with more features. Future Shop could not get it together and get one ordered for me so I went LG|

Just grabbed one from FS in Stoney Creek. The sales guy dropped the price to $949 from $1200 as I got the calibration for 299.00. Also got the 4 year PSP for $200 and a bell HD reciever for $99 which will go upstairs with my 40" Sammy LCD
pretty good deal. They have to order it in so it will be a few days.

No you can't since a totally black screen doesn't age the phosphors at all. Here's the burn in FAQ for more information on the topic:
The topic has been discussed to death in the following thread.

|SushiMan||What is your feedback??? I am looking at getting this model: Samsung pn50b540s3f series 5 540|

|yermudder||I found the 5 series 540 plasma priced as the 4 series 450(50 inch) at wal-mart today. They discovered the error at checkout but had to give it to me anyway. Just hooked it up, calibrating now. Looks awesome.|

|DSgamby||Update. I bought this TV|

I have the A550 (probably the same thing)
Speaker doesn't sound terrible but they are feeble. I still use them for OTA TV viewing only.
SD rendition is generally not that good and BAD if you need to use a stretch mode that zooms (like blowing up 'stamp' 16:9 SD content to fill the screen = terrible, no issue on my other plasma doing the exact same thing)
I am quite happy with mine for what I use it for.

|DSgamby||but is it terrible than most? I have no problems with the sound on my HP monitor|

|gg22||Sound is terrible on most modern TVs - not much space for speakers.|
|2009-08-15 12:32 PM|
|DSgamby||thanks, that doesn't sound good|

|05trx500fe||I have the same TV really happy with it. HD really good SD I find a little motion blur as I posted earlier asking for advise. Surprised to get this on a Plasma . The sound is terrible compared to my old Hitachi CRT. I find it puts off a lot of heat 110 F or better at most times so for a small room it can really heat things up.|
