    This HD plasma is great. I got mine from samsclub and no complains about it. I also use it as a monitor for my multi media PC. It connects to HDMI and coverts to DVI video.

    I know this is only monitor thats why I got it. HD tuner is useless unless you use an air antenna. I subscribe to my cable for HD using a box. It connects to the component. The only thing about this product is when you play some dvd movies thats dark. Nothing new though. It really depends on how the movie is made. Sometimes you can see clay shahows but as I said it really depends on the movie

    Overall .........this is a great HD plasma monitor for the price. Its now $1,200 in samsclub. Excellent as a MCE monitor. You can play games without ghosting.

    Thanks for the reply, Be carefull of burn in. I had this hooked up to Direct TV and didn't know about the strecth to fit screen so now i have 2 lines on each side where i used the black to define the tv when wasn't watching wide screen or dvd.. other than that it has been freat and when i purchase another plasma it will have burn in protection had i known this about this plasma i would have not purchased it but i have been happy with its performance.

    I have no problem with burn in. If you read the forums about burn-in's it does not matter if you have a burn in protection or not. I've research before buying this brand and it has all pluses than minuses. I'm buying one more from samsclub:)

    What do you mean that it doesn't matter if you have burn in protection or not? I have heard quite the difference...
