Aren't plasmas dangerous to use for gaming and HTPC setups with potential for nasty burn in due to stuff like desktop icons not moving and game UIs being static?

There are reports of IR still being an issue. Burn is a rare concept these days, but is a possibility in extreme cases. If you plan on using HTPC a lot than LCD/LED would be the way to go.

For general gaming and light HTPC use (no more than a few hours sitting on same screen) plasma would be a viable option. You would get the best gaming/picture setup this way.

LCD/LED cannot touch ms rates of lower end plasmas cannot be touched by LCD/LED.

If you are interested in LCD/LED for gaming/blacks your best options will be:
-LG LM7600 (lag could be noticable) 30-40ms
-Panny Et5 or e50 (Great ms for a LCD) 25-30ms
-Toshiba 6200u (reports seem to be good on ms lag but no confirmations from reviews/tests)
-Samsung es6100 or 6500 (again no confirmed tests for lag)
