Hello,
Looking for a new TV for no more than $1,200 - 3D/Smart TV functions aren't important at all, just looking for good PQ especially black levels. Hopefully bigger than 55".

I've been looking at these two:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ARAHA5G/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I'm torn between a plasma now, some of the IR/Burn in threads have me a little nervous about pulling the trigger on the Panasonic.

It's main use will be movies, no cable or TV apart from blu-ray TV shows, and some PC gaming.
Also will be used for video editing, so having it as a full screen reference monitor, to color grade off also.

Any thoughts? Or any other recommendations that might fit my needs better?
Thank you!

In the LCD forum, there's a thread dedicated to finding an LCD.  In the plasma forum, there's one a well.  Since you're trying to decide between an LCD and a plasma I'd suggest you take a look at this thread here (I set the link to drop you on the last post):

Well vinnie97, one of the kindest and most helpful and respected members here, was banned for silly reasons. And now vinnie_RIP is banned as well. The mark of an inexperienced moderator is to forget that their role is one of resource, not one of petulant authority and further that the members are doing the forum organization a favor by being here, not the other way around. They know darn well they screwed up here.
