I would not get Plasma. You can read in many forums about short and long term image retention. Those that sell this will write it's not a big problem. Why didn't they write it's no problem and the warranty covers it?

The 7000 series are nice, but...
by Pepe7 / December 3, 2012 11:28 AM PST Bob pointed out, static images and plasma still aren't the best of mates. If you are using the Vizio mostly as a gaming & PC monitor, it's a great choice. If you were more slanted towards movies & maximizing PQ (esp. contrast & black levels), then the Sammy would be a tad better.

I would probably choose LED over plasma for your particular usage patterns, that include many types of static images/constant web browsing, playback of static PC content.
