My main concern with using a plasma display essentially as a PC monitor, is the risk of 'screen burn' from a static image. Most manufacturers don't cover such damage under their warranties...

In this day and age, you should mention the 750 watts of power consumption vs 290 for the 52" LCD LE52A756.

Apart from needing deep pockets to buy it and a power-station to run it sounds perfect for today's ecologically minded viewer.

I think screen burn is much less a problem now than it used to be, I've been using a 50" 1080P Samsung plasma as a TV and PC monitor without an issue for almost a year now. You would save on your heating bill as quite a few of those 750 watts will be converted to heat.

I can't wait until someone does a review of Samsung LE52A756. Only then we can really evaluate the goodness of this plasma vs LCD technology.

It would be really useful if we could have a rated power consumption measurement in the review.

One measurement in torch mode straight out of the box and then another measurement after calibration for the review.

@Frederic73: according to the Dutch website of Samsung the power consumption of the PS50A756 is 550 Watt. You should also bear in mind that this is the maximum power consumed since it's a plasma TV.

OTOH, the power consumption of the PS50A750 on the British website of Samsung is 750 Watt! Now what's correct?!

I see reviews for the 5 series and 7 series plasma. Anyone have a view on the 6 series which is going for good prices at the moment - around � on line. Is it closer to what looks like a pretty strong set in the 756 or closer to the underwhelming 556.

I live in the UK and have read reviews of this TV,BUT I cannot find a single place which stocks it.I have spoken to Samsung,who are also (believe it or not) unable to confirm to whom they ship them too.Samsung head office,is staffed (it appears anyway) by telephonists and ghosts,as no-one rings you back to confirm where it can be bought from.

So here I am,on a website asking for some help from anyone with info as to where i can buy this TV from.............all help appreciated.
