Was hoping for a little help. I'm trying to purchase my first HDTV. Mostly bluray/streaming with the occasional sports match or gaming. I will sit about 8 feet from the tv with completely controlled and dark room. My budget is ~$2000.
My final choices are the sony hx850, the lg lm7600 or one of the panasonic plasmas like the 60gt50. Everyone rates the plasmas really high, but I just don't know if I can deal with any potential burn in and am not a fan of darker whites. I went to best buy to look at all the tvs, but only the LG looks ok. Just about every other tv, including the supposed best tv available in the panasonic vt50, look ridiculously bad at this best buy. I did like the design of the hx850 a lot though. Is the hx850 worth the extra money vs the LG or panasonic plasmas? I'm leaning towards it right now despite how bad it looked at best buy.
