Honestly id buy a plasma i have a few friends with plazmas and they love there tvs. The burn in dont concern me as much as it did maybe 10 years ago. I have 2 lcd televisions now. My oldest being around 7-8 yrs old. Back then plasmas were definitaly a no go. Had alot of luck with lcd. I also liked the fact that you can change the bulbs in them. I changed the bulb in my 60" sony 2yrs ago it was like new all over again 110$ bulb.

Check model numbers they don't lie! I used to work as a Tv re-pair man. They are not cheaper as much as old technology. When we would go to training they would show how the Costco model and the others were different inside.

Speaking of wattage, LED LCDs use about half the power of plasmas.

Bestbuy.com deal of the day, 60" sharp led for $700.

I have 2 1080p led's I got last year. I have big windows so plasma is out. Plus they are heavy. New ones are much better than those 2 years old but it is a dying technology like my 720p crt tv

OP, if your still undecided, go to someplace like Best Buy when it isn't busy and ask them to run standard definition on the Visio so you can see how well the picture upconverts to 720/1080i via interpolation.

Also, LCD TV burn in does occur, but it's rare and occurs when the LCD pixel doesn't turn completely off.

I returned a Sharp LC-60C6400U 60" cus they SUCK at sports. Football is barely watchable out of the box. I bought a Vizio M650vse and are happy with it. Sams have the same tv on sale for black friday for $998. If you want info on this TV read this thread and you can search there for any TV model

Official Vizio M650VSE Owners Thread!

Plasmas have a better picture than led TVs. Panasonic and Samsung are on top for picture quality. Also plasmas look good from any angle while led Tvs loose some quality if you watch in an angle.

LCD pixels die, they stay whatever color they were when they die ie: red, blue , green or white. Plasma burn plasma gas and will dim or fade over time. Warrenty doesn't cover plasma fade and it is hard to get a few dead pixels covered. Just food for thought on the longevity of tv's. They are not leant to last as long as big screens and old CRT tube tv's

Now your obligated to go fix that wikipedia entry someone posted since I know you've fixed TVs.

Now why is a full array LED backlit screen much more expensive then an edge lit one and is the cost justified?
