Get a panasonic g20 you wont be dissapointed, its one of the only 42" plasmas thats 1920x1080.
Depending on the plasma you buy, it may not require this. I recently bought the Samsung 50c550 and samsung specifically stated that there is no break-in period.

Also I agree, plasma have the best of the best everything. Unfortunately the plasma I bought had a horrible buzzing and apparantly a 50/50 chance on every model in the C series. I ended up switching it for the 46c6300 which is LED lcd, but the picture is nowhere as good.

well, my 42 inch plasma i did not notice burn in time, also i watch movies / tv shows on it all night with black bars on bottom and top no burn ins. as for them saying 600hz is true but its only 60hz. meaning their is a sub-lay for the 600hz. my 42 plasma is only 60hz/600hz sub lay , the pitcher quilty is great i got a Panasonic witch is the best for plasmas, Looks better then the isp monitor i had for 2 hours , but for gameing i feel that 60hz, fine for gt5 but bc2 or fps no go. i picked mine up about 1 year ago.
Also with plasmas DONT lay in down the Cristals will move and cant return or replace it. but best pitcher i see, also watch stander tv sucks need hi-def channels , i got mine mounted on wall in bedroom in sun or dark pitcher is great.

I bought a 46" HX800 LED dynamic lit Sony 3dtv on blackfriday this year and it's the best TV I ever had. It completely destroys any TV in the house and my friends and family never shutup about it. xD
I watch everything in a dark room and this TV is superb in that area because the dynamic LEDs keep the blacks and dark scenes looking very dark which I really like. It dynamically adjusts brightness over separate parts of the screen so your whites and colors will still pop.
I'm not into 3dmovies much but the kids love it and ps3 3d games are cool.

The advantages of Dynamic LED are huge compared to Plasma. A ton less power, deep blacks without giving up brightness and a very light and thin frame are all excellent points to consider.
Honestly after seeing the quality of the newer dynamic LEDs I don't know why people bother with burn in and the lower brightness of plasmas anymore.

Forgot to mention that this thing runs cool. You can lay your hand on the back and barely notice any warmth at all coming off it. The speakers are fantastic also for as little power as it uses. It is a very loud and room filling experience from what appear to be invisible speakers.

We are completely happy with this TV which is a first.

because plasma has better moving image quality

if you dont mind the additional power/heat/weight plasma is better...

i myself have an sony lcd right now, but my next TV will most likely be a panny plasma

Newer plasma TV's do not use as much power as older units. Who cares though really, my 2005 panasonic plasma is still working perfect day in day out after 6 years, not one issue. My new 50 inch samsung is an inch and a half thick with better picture quality than an LCD.

I will say LCD/LED sets are getting better, their blacks are catching up, at least the newer samsungs, like within the last year. With the OP needs a plasma is an easy answer.
