how are plasmas for gaming purposes? if i play something for 3 hours will i be left wit hthe HUD burned into it forever?
Much lower response time (lcds are rated from 2-12 ms...most are 5-8. Plasmas take nanoseconds). The better black levels reduce black crush, so you don't have to crank the brightness up to 95 to see somebody in a cave, like you do on other sets.
As long as you get a decent set and are using it as an actual tv from time to time, you're fine. It's almost impossible to burn an image into a modern plasma (especially Panasonics). You'd have to leave it there for a few weeks straight with the settings jacked up for it to be an issue.
