I'm sorry to start a whole new thread for this. It's been awhile since I've read anything about TVs and I'm very behind on current models and it's generally confusing right now.

I use to have a 55" Panasonic S2 that I absolutely LOVED, I had to move though and it was too big to bring with. I bought a LG LCD TV that was recommended here because my main use of my TV is through my HTPC computer to play video games / watch TV, I guess this thing can do something called 4:4:4 chroma. The thing is I HATE this LG, terrible colors and screen tearing on every single game I play. I want to go back to Plasma and I'm pretty sure the image retention wont be a problem with HTPC, I didn't notice any burn in on my S2. So I want something like a 50" model, what model should I get?

thanks in advance.

Thank you. Will getting the picture to look great be as easy as my S2? All I did was do the changes in the debug menue then did some basic changes with Blue Ray Essentials disc.

Gotcha. I think I will enjoy it vs waiting for a 2013 model. Is this a decent price? I'm completley out of the TV loop, its about what I paid for my S2 when I purchased it.

No, it's not a decent price, It's an unbelievable price.
