    I've noticed that more plasma monitors are being sold for home use. What
    is the lifetime of such a unit?

    I had a color TV set that I used for 20 years; I finally got rid of it
    when the mechanical remote control mechanism in the TV wore out.

    I've recently seen ads that push the use of the monitor, when not used
    for viewing programs, as a display for art. But, will it die afte a
    year's constant use?

    What would be the wearout mechanism, loss of material from the emitter,
    deposit of material on the phosphor, loss of the gas which produces the
    plasma???

    Anybody have any experience with this?

    I understand that they burn in relatively quickly. And they use a lot of
    electricity.

    This may not be such a good idea. Though it will sell the screens.

    BTW most have an ugly display of darker colors. The lowest light level
    isn't that low and dithering is used to work around this.
