You can't burn a LCD, ever. It is physically impossible. (And you should know simply by checking that the windows' bar at the bottom of your lcd monitor is not there when you watch a movie or check the LCD of a World of Warcraft addict that spend over 10000 hours showing the same user interface).
Old cheap CCFL holders used to make LCDs look brownish in areas. Not a burn issue.
LCD panels may be defective and have darker stripes EXACTLY where a 4:3 image would end on both sides. Not a burn issue (and happens instantly, not gradually).
And I could keep going for a while with all the issues LCDs can have. I repair TVs for a living. I see more LCDs in a week than most will in a lifetime. You just can't.
Looks like it's a stalemate for me.. Plasma better PQ than LCD vs LCD having better reliability than plasma..
Oh well.. I will get to see both this weekend..
