[QUOTE=Dalen Quaice;2238281]I’m going to go with Mystic Eyes – I have a 42" Panasonic Plasma EDTV and it looks amazing displaying 1080p with HDMI. It looks better than my true pixel by pixel 1080p LCD when viewing HDTV or DVD content, yet it’s resolution is a wimpy 852x480. Everyone that sees it says, “Boy, I need to get an HDTV” – ha.
It depends on what you want to do with your TV – get an LCD if you want to play games or use your computer. Get a plasma to watch DVD, Blu-Ray, or broadcast.
The only negative with plasma for video is burn in – if you don’t like smart stretch “just” mode, and you watch shows with black bars on the top or sides, they WILL burn in.[/QUOTE]
Burn-in ceased to be a problem a few years ago. It is the same as a CRT tv. You would have to freeze an image on the screen for a couple of days. They shut off automatically before that. Even VCR’s stopped freeze frame after a few minutes to prevent burn-in on old tv’s. Screen savers were invented specifically to prevent burn-in.
