Like the above poster, I recommend an LG or Sharp.
I have a 2011 LG 42" LK450 60Hz CCFL-LCD, which has minimal input lag. Since it's got a S-IPS panel, dark portions of the image don't smear with fast motion like on *VA panel technology. For gaming, 60Hz sets tend to have the least input lag and IPS panels seem to work great with gaming as well (since motion blur tends to be more uniform and less distracting than on the average *VA panel). I would avoid brands like Samsung if you are very picky about input lag, since they tend to have the most input lag even when in game mode.
Also, you can certainly watch some modern plasmas in a well-lit room, but a matte screen LED/LCD would be ideal (as it should minimize reflections and glare while remaining very dark when light hits the screen directly).
