Concerns over Plasma panel heating room
by Dan Filice - 8/20/08 1:05 PM
It looks like I will finally be able to purchase a replacement TV for the bedroom and I will probably purchase the 42" 1080p Panasonic Plasma from Costco for $1099. For those Plasma owners out there, does anyone have any feedback on the very warm display heating up a small room? The 42" Plasma uses 573 watts, which if it were a light bulb wouldn't be a concern (except for blindness from such wattage), but a 42" display is much larger than a light bulb and my bedroom isn't all that large. I can't imagine having a 58" Plasma as those consume 743 watts.
