Having an SO that has worked at Best Buy and Sears electronics, he always says “Panasonic is the BEST for plasma, but Sony and Samsung are also good” and “Sony or Samsung if it is an LCD TV”. We have a 50″ Samsung Plasma TV and LOVE IT. Burn in is not a big deal, just don’t leave it on the same screen for a super long time, and even if you do, it goes away easily. Like sportsgal, we love watching movies on our Plasma and they show black better than most TV’s. They are heavier and use more energy, though.
Another thing to consider is the lighting in the room. LCD’s do better in bright rooms because they have a matte screen, whereas Plasmas have a glass screen that can cause glare in brightly lit rooms.
That’s my 2 cents! He also reccomends just going in store to see what you think looks better, a lot of people that write reviews about the TV they own haven’t seen it compared to other TVs. And he says that the technology for 3D tv’s is just not up to par yet to justify the price, it is still in infant stages.
Can you tell he’s an electronics freak, yet? It’s rubbing off, apparently!! Hope that helps!!
