My dad just bought that 46" samsung series 8 and it is an excellent tv. One of the better picture qualities that I have seen yet.

What i hate about plasmas are that they get insanely hot, like that in combonation with my 360 it'll heat up my room quickly (i have a small room) But they look amazing!

I used to dislike plasmas because they have all this burn-in "stigma" around them. However, my old LCD crapped out on me recently, so I snagged one of the 42" Samsung plasmas for $699. I've been incredibly impressed for the past week that I've owned it. Regular old DVD's look absolutely incredible (you'd honestly mistake it for HD), standard SD television looks great, and best of all, video games are awesome on it.

I've had no burn-in whatsoever. I've watched a few basketball and football games on it, as well as played Madden on it, and none of the stationary scoreboards get burned in at all. I could not be more impressed by this television, especially since it was dirt cheap.

Out of curiosity, what made you decide that zero burn in time was needed and that your particular plasma didn't need the stated 100 hours?

I would have to go with Samsung's 8 series LCD. I have the 4 series (yeah I know) and I think it really looks great just by looking at how it produces 720P. I think for superior picture quality, the X series would be the best. The W series is also good, but I suggest you go with Samsung.

Go with the plasma, if it is for movies and television you can not beat a plasma tv's quality.

I was just stating that, from what I have used the television for, there has been no burn-in. I've read over on other forums of people having new plasmas get burn in within the first few days of ownership, whether it be by playing video games or watching sports, thus why I made the comment of not noticing anything of the sort.

LCD's all the way buddy. Plasmas burn in as other people have said.
Sooner or later you will hate that annoying little logo imprinted on the corner of your expensive TV because it was a plasma...

So as far as my opinion goes, choose the better of the LCD's. Remember, resolution, not size.

LCDs burn too fellas. Trust me, they do.

LCDs seem to be the winner these days, but price was it seems plasma is now slightly cheaper.
