I had a 3 year old Samsung 60 in Plasma na nasira ang Y- Board. I paid around 12k to have it replaced with 3 months warranty for parts and services related to the Y- Board only. I wanted to keep the Plasma kaya lang wala ng paglalagyan kase I bought a replacement already na LG 65UM7300 PPA. Sold the Plasma for 23k.

I really miss the Plasma.Color rendition is way better than the LG,heck I like my 70 inch Sharp Aquos that I got at 40% less  more than the LG as well.

I am a bit frustrated with the lifespan of the Plasma TV. Mine lasted only for around 4 years. I remembered my 21 inch TV that lasted for around 17 years, wala pang na ka attached na voltage regulator. Friends, papaano po natin mapapahaba ang lifespan ng Plasma TV? Please share your tips.

My friends plasma is on its 12th year. Mine is approaching 10.

Our trick is to turn off electricity to the tv when not in use. 

Some plasma models are more durable than others. Samsung 51 Full HD are ok, the 60" are known to fail prematurely.  Many Panasonic plasmas are bulletproof.  LGs are not.

Swerte swerte lang. My fisrt 42 in Panasonic Plasma is alive and kicking until now bought it around 2008. It was replaced by another Panasonic Plasma 50 in and stlill is doing well. Wala namang special na ginagawa, turn on pag gagamitin turn off pag hindi na.

Mine was a 51" which went kaput, and not just once, too.  A cursory look at the back pages of this thread will reveal that many 51" owners underwent the same mishaps, unfortunately. :(

I replaced my 42-inch Panasonic Plasma (PV8) with the Samsung F1F5000 as an upgrade to 1080p (full HD) and bigger screen ... I gave the Panasonic Plasma to my sister, hanggang ngayon ginagamit pa, yung Samsung died over 2 years ago

Not for me.  The PQ is nice and all but the looming spectre of it blowing up in the next couple of years is enough for me to stay away.

In fact, any price higher than 10k is probably not worth it.

Not all samsung plasmas are the same. Yung mga 4000 series has a different resolution and rising black levels. I agree 18k is too much.
Off topic. Natatawa ako when looking at 2nd hand for sales, minsan defective na nga, gagatasan pa rin ng seller. Tipong basag na screen, 5k pa rin ang gusto. I know they're probably aiming the repair guys to but it for spare, but dude... Lol. It just goes to show how poor a country we are.
