So if you want razor thin, good picture and less power consumption LED is your best option. but for clarification LED televisions use an LCD for the picture the difference is that while a standard LCD tv uses a large ccfl back light panel an led tv uses a large led array as a back light with one led per pixel. then the leds can be dimmer or turned off to avoid bleed through in dark areas of the picture. As for the refresh rate, 120-240Hz is the best beyond that it gets pointless and is just an excuse for manufactures to sell for more money.

Sorry but your wrong. I have a 52'' LG plasma and at the most it uses is 120W so 700w for a 58'' could not be correct. i think you might want to check your source for more information.

A budget LED/LCD will not touch a budget Plasma for overall picture quality. The Panasonic ST series is a great place to start.

aggreed, i have also heard that with these new LED 3D smart TVs that black and shades of dont really display correctly...

As far as burn in is concerned it is still an issue for plasma as far i can tell. I have experienced it on my previously mentioned LG 52". It was manufactured in July of 2010 so it not that old. I do experience some burn in after short periods of use(1-4Hours). Like gaming or video images that do not change much. It does go away and is not that noticeable. I do have to say i though plasma was left in the dust but i was very wrong. This TV looks great. I'm not sure if you could go wrong for whats out there now. I would say get the biggest for your money.

What you are referring to is called image retention (IR). Burn-in is permanent and IR is temporary.

New plasmas have almost no chance of burn-in. You would literally have to let a still image sit on your TV for hundreds or thousands of hours in a row, and even then, the TV will have safeguards in place to ensure no burn-in. IR is uncommon but can occur, especially within the first 100 hours of the TV's life. But it is completely temporary and does no permanent damage to the screen.

You're confusing image retention and burn-in. Burn is, by definition, a permanent effect, and is largely gone from modern plasmas. All plasma do exhibit image retention to some degree. It's not something one notices often (although the UI from a video game staying on the screen is a good example). 1-4 hours seems a bit long though. I usually see it go away in a few seconds.

No but by the looks of things you do. While you are correct about them just being LCD with different backlighting, I was trying to say manufacturers call them LED TVs because it will save money when they print off adverts and packaging (more ink then use the more expensive it is going to be) Even if it only cost $0.01 extra to write "it's the same as LCD but with LED backlighting" they have to print it millions of times. ($0.01 x 1,000,000 = $10,000) and it's for marketing as well. If they did say "it's the same as LCD but with LED backlighting" then more people would buy LCD because at the moment LCD is cheaper.

I bought a Samsung 46" LED/ 3D/120Hz a few months ago and I would suggest you to read once you have narrow down your options. My complaint about this TV is corner bleeding I read about it before and notice it on display but I can get to you especially if you are looking for it. The TV itself is super sleek and image quality once set is awesome to say the least but once in a while you will notice the bleeding if it wasn't there the TV would be perfect. I was also considering Plasma for their good color reproduction but wanted to try new technology.
