I'd rather not bore you with a "Which should I get? LCD or Plasma?" Forum where the topics are beat, so I'll get to the point.

My main question pertains to LED TVs, particularly the Samsung UN46B8000. I've read some issues about "auto-dimming". Is this a bother? What is yet still unclear to me are definitions to terms like "local dimming" and "front-lit".

I am relatively clear on the advantages/disadvantages on LCD vs. Plasma but not clear enough on how LED fits into this mix. I will do extensive looking in-store but we all know of that to be only a somewhat good indicator on picture-quality. If you're interested, the TVs I am considering are as follows:

(Almost exclusively using this TV for PS3, XBOX360 and Blu-Ray Disc)


Samsung UN46B8000

Panasonic TC-P46G15

Panasonic TC-P42G15

Sony KDL-40XBR9

Sony KDL-46XBR9

Samsung LN46B750

Or keep my Mitsubishi LT-42644 (46" 120hz LCD with Thin Frame and dirt-poor sound manufactured in 2007).

I may be able to sell this set and get something newer. It is possible that I will eventually mount this new set on the ceiling, so I'm trying to keep the weight down (
