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):
