I agree with you hence my first choice for the LCD however, as I said I like to keep my options open and have been advised that the 50MXE20 is the Plasma equivalent of a computer monitor and has been tested and used as such in commercial applications. However, all said and done, could anyone either confirm or dismiss this line of thinking.

I would imagine that for the applications you mention you'd see significant benefits from your Sony's 1920x1080 resolution that you wouldn't get from the Pio's 1365x768 -- and that you'd often be sitting or standing close enough to tell the difference. Like if it were me, I'd want my clients to be able to lean in close and get as much detail of my photographic skills as I could give them.

The MXE may be the plasma version of a computer monitor, but the Sony more is less IS a computer monitor. And that's even if you don't believe in burn-in/image retention, which frankly I don't know what to believe anymore and am going to be a little bit cautious no matter what Lyle says.

All this is guesswork, though, because I haven't done a direct comparison and am still waiting for my MXE :)

I'd say have a look at the Pioneer web site. They seem to promote the MXE as a presentation panel.

http://www.pioneer.com.au/products/commerc...lays/index.html

Problem is that it may be hard to get someone to connect a Powerbook or something like that to a panel in a specialist store....and still have time to still get in on the GB.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, I have recently had a few issues with a Pioneer top end product that is being rectified with little fuss (I must admit, I am impressed with Pioneers after sales service hence why I am looking at potentially changing from the Sony LCD to the Pioneer) and I have been fortunate enough to discuss several technical topics with Pioneer directly.

One topic discussed was the 50MXE20 and that it has been selling well into large corporations as a display device for presentations etc. and that it actually has an option of placing a sleeve over the plasma to use as a touch screen during these presentations. That to me sounds like it is an extremely stable plasma with pixel shifting to such a refined extent that burn in is no longer an issue hence my interest.

That's good, because if you are aware that there could be a problem, chances are, you will never have it.

It tends to only happen if one is a bit silly (ie, leave a fixed static image up for 30 hours). However, even if you did this the retention could be removed. My source for these comments comes from a very reliable source.

Many thanks for this reply as it highlighted an issue that was right in front of my nose all the time but for some reason I missed (i.e native panel resolution) and consequently, I will be sticking with the Sony LCD as, stated above, I am extremely happy with the panel to date.

That's good too.

We all have to make the best decision with the information we have and what our own needs and preferences dictate..

Any one who tells you different is off the mark.

No I was just being facetious really, I was very encouraged by your comments on the burn-in thread. Trouble is I do tend to be a bit silly, eg pause TV for a phone call then wander off and make a sandwich etc. I'll be slightly more vigilant than with the CRT but will take great comfort from your experience and inside scoop.

Doesn't matter, I was serious. I really believe this plasma will not give you problems unless you seriously abuse it. It was designed for commercial situations. The 30 hours might really need to 100 hours but I don't like to stick my neck out quite that far. :)

How bout we leave a fixed static image up on both our screens and see who cracks first?

Plasma chicken!

As Lyle said.... what a cool story ! :)

Seriously tho.. i didnt get a phone call until the TNT guy was at my gates.... lucky my partner was home and she let him in.

I wonder if they would have just left it on the driveway.

Yeha that would be sweet if they did even.

"Plasma screen, what plasma screen in my driveway"

They'd not leave it unless they got a signature.

Didn't someone else go for a 42inch as well? After contacting Pioneer about picking up from BPP, it's been suggested that the 42inch is on back order :angry: He said this came to his attention last week.....I'm really wondering about Pioneer customer service - well lack of anyway.

Congratulations to those that have received theirs!

I doubt we'll hear from anyone tonight, as they'll be sitting with a drooling grin on their couch, and unable to get up to come to the computer or camera to take a pic for us still waiting!!

*sniff*

TNT arrived today to deliver mine, alas, no-one home to sign a delivery note..........and, no phone call beforehand.

Queried customer service at TNT about the driver calling ahead tomorrow to let me know when to zip home to receive but "drivers aren't issued with TNT mobile phones" was the reason for why that was not possible. So much for TNT's "sophisticated electronic systems that are creating a truly interactive distribution environment". Next available delivery would be in 48hrs.

I'll be damned if I have to wait another 48hrs! Lucky I've a mate with a van big enough to collect direct from the depot.

Oh well, at least they got it to Adelaide quickly and I'll have my hands on it tomorrow.

BTW skippy, in stitches with your story today. Heh Heh Heh

Yeah I know. Unable and unwilling. Would be nice to get some feedback. Still I know you won't disappoint Nick. I'll have my laptop with me while I'm away over the weekend to keep in touch.

Ooh Nick, I haven't yet gone as far as sticking a folded bit of paper on the wall but here is my pre-TV shot.

You might be in for a bit of disappointment Nick...sure the new screen might have moving pictures but no way it's going to be as flat as your current model :rolleyes: (obviously I'm not talking about the CRT!!!)

Nor as light either!!

I really can't wait for this panel.......grrrrr.

Surely someone can post a pic of their MXE turned on!!!!?? :(
