Thanks for your input.
Before the plasma TV market died, I really wanted one bad. The inky blacks and vivid colors were captivating but I knew that the wife's viewing habits were a problem in the making. I settled for a Sony KDL-55W900A (Quantum Dots) TV which was the best that LCD could offer at the time. I've kept my eye on OLED technology, however, hoping that it would offer plasma-like picture quality and low power consumption without the IR/BI problems. The fact that LG doesn't warrant against burn-in tells me all I need to know.
