Also, is the motion performance better than LED 240HZ or not?
I was originally looking at the Samsung 8000 series LED's. I thought they looked aesthetically beautiful, but the more I read online the more I heard about the positives of picture quality that you get in a plasma. Panasonic plasmas pretty much showed up every time you searched professional reviews for best picture TVs over the past few years.
So that got me looking into them more. Beyond that, a plasma gets you a lot more screen for your money. I got a 65" plasma for probably less than I was going to get a 55" sammy LED. It wasn't the deciding factor, but it played a part.
I really wanted LED at first because I thought it would last a lot longer. Nobody could readily confirm that that would be the case, however. Even people selling them.
As of right now, I have a very nice panasonic st30 and, even though it's not as pretty as the samsung, the tradeoff is knowing when i turn the tv on the more important pretty shows up.
