The plasma fans and makers tend to downplay image retention and burn in but it's still there.
Proof? Read the warranty and it excludes burn in and some exclude image retention. Your plasma fans often write about LCD burn too.
I'm looking to upgrade my TV and not sure what to get. It will be in a large basement room. There won't be any sunlight in the room, but the majority of the time, the room will be well lit while the TV is in use. I think a 60" will fit nicely. The TV will mostly be used to watch TV and movies, but also used for my PS3 and Xbox 360.
I'm not a fanatic about top of the line equipment, but I want a TV that will look very good for the next 5-10 years.
The two I was looking at are below. I think my biggest question is, do you think plasma or LED is better for my room/intended use?
