im in the market for a new tv mostly for gaming and movies.im stuck between these two. i like the plasma because of size and heard the picture is outstanding however im concerened with image retention/burn in. I have never owned a plasma so dont know how they have come to avoid those issues.
heres the plasma http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00752VKW8/

i like the led because it comes with glasses and it also doesnt need to be broken or have to worry about image retention. however im not familiar with lg tvs heard they were kind of cheap.
here is the lg http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006ZH0KVG/ref=s9_simh_gw_p23_d0_i2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0H5Y6W0KJW7K8D089615&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1389517282&pf_rd_i=507846

I bought a 50 inch Panasonic Plasma HDTV back in 2004 and it still looks like it did when it was new. I play my Xbox 360 on it and games and movies look great on it. You won't have to worry about burn in.

As far as the LED I don't know to much about them. My mom bought a 42" Samsung LCD back in 2007 and my Plasma blows it way.

Broadcast TV - a vital national public resource

For 3D I would get the LG. I have an LCD Sony and an LG in the same room and both look great. Got rid of of a DLP and a rear projection TV. All of the new LED LCD models look much better than they did just a few years ago.

while LED is a LCD they are different. Also even with regular LCD technology has improved since 2007 you know. So 2007 LCD < 2012 LCD < 2012 LED

It's a misnomer to say that they're "different". I have a Sony XBR8, and the difference is just that the backlight is LED - the actual LCD screen itself is a normal LCD panel, just lit by LEDs. What other difference do you think there is?

You quote me saying LED is a LCD then you ask that question. Do you actually READ before you post something?

I have a one year old Panny 65GT30 plasma and it is beautiful. I spent several months looking around and decided plasma was for me. I have different setting for day and night. The tv does not face any windows and that is the best for it. If you get a plasma, keep the reflections to a minimum. The LED's are better for a bright room with window reflections. I watch movies and fast action sporting events. I love this tv and have nothing bad to say about it. I also had it calibrated to get every ounce of performance out of it. At times it looks like I am looking out a window, as it is so clear. I am also on FIOS, and Netfix is great. Good luck with your search and go to a bunch of stores to see the tv's in person.
