Samsung LED H7150 or plasma F8500

I had a Panasonic plasma old of 5-6 years. I would like to know what to choose between TV h7150 LED or plasma F8500.

I watch a lot of sports and hdtv. I heard that LED have fluidity and blur problems but plasmas are disappearing...

What you think about thoses TVs. I read reviews but i'm not able to make a choice.

I would get the F8500 plasma. Great for sports and also film content and HDTV. Brightness essentially equal to LED-LCD TV, although you might want to avoid reflections. Also you will have far less issues with non uniformity / dirty screen effect unlike LED-LCD.

Lots of people have the F8500 or are you referring to retailers selling it?

If you aren't concerned about image retention or possible burn-in then the plasma is I'd think the way to go as in my opinion plasma offers overall superior picture quality.

I can have the F8500 cheaper than the H7150.

Some sellers tell me the F8500 has limited viewing angle because of a filter, that we have to watch the tv directly in front otherwise it's very dark. Usually plasma have good viewing angle, is that a problem with the F8500 ?

It has a limited vertical viewing angle due to the ambient light rejecting filter. If you plan to mounted it above or below eye level you may have issues if you're also planning to sit close to it. The horizontal viewing angle is very wide.

When i bought my plasma in 2008, I used a break-in dvd the first 100 hours if I remember. Is it still necessary ?

Probably not, but it doesn't hurt either.
