Hey everyone, I need some suggestions. We're getting rid of our DLP tv finally. We already have a panasonic 50" plasma. We want a 50" 1080p. Now, I'm not sure if we want LCD or plasma, as we watch a lot of sports and action movies. Last time i looked (christmas last year) plasma was better for sports/ action movies because of the faster response time. Also, we'd like to keep it as cheap as possible.
I've heard that if you're gonna be doing any gaming, an lcd is a must over a plasma. Someone also told me that colours are better on plasma but i couldn't tell you to be honest, i'm color blind. From my experience with aquos tv's, they seem to be pretty awesome but u pay quite a premium. I'd be inclined to go with a samsung but that's because i'm loyal to them for all the great products of theirs that i own.

Personally, I hate the way 120Hz looks but it is a must if you are gaming on your TV.
Another feature that I find is a MUST is digital noise reduction. I was watching Battlestar Galactica on DVD the other day and the amount of picture noise was absolutely disgusting. Changing the noise reduction on the Sammy 850 blasted all that crap away and resulted in a reasonably smooth picture.

As far as I've seen, you can game on plasma just as well- burn-in used to be the issue from HUDs and windows desktop sitting on screen for long periods- now decent plasmas have better wipes to clear any burn in that might occur and better lifespans than they used to. I do some of my gaming on a panasonic viera plasma and it looks great.
