Well the important thing to check is if the plasma that you are interested in even has the FBr issue at all. And if so if there is a solution. As you can see from the responses below there are many plasma's that do not have the issue.

As mentioned in a previous post, I have a Samsung Plasma and I do not experience anything similar to what is shown in both of those toutube clips.

I feel bad for you guys. That would kill my watching experience.

Yes, there are many plasmas, especially older ones without all the new ambient light processing that do not get FBr. Or their owners are smart enough not to watch on "standard" settings and use custom ones. The plasma buyer these days is usually an informed purchaser as the market is really a niche market these days.

I would say anyone in the market for a new tv should do some research before they buy one regardless of it's Plasma or LCD.
