Plasma>LCD and it's not even close.

Get yourself a Panasonic Viera and I promise you will not regret it. The only con to a plasma compared to lcd is energy efficiency. Plasma>LCD in every aspect of picture quality.

and when your vizio clicks then shuts off, does that for a few days or weeks, then eventually doesn't even power on get yourself a good plasma. Just google "vizio clicks shuts off" and there are multiple posts on all size vizio's having the same issue. A guy at work brought his in so we could look at it, only reason I'm aware of this issue now.

Apparently i'm one of the few people that LOVE plasmas. I've had my plasma ('42 panasonic viera) for about 1 1/2 years now. I use it for gaming and watching bluerays mainly and it's usually on at least 15 hours a day. The only negative thing I have to say about it is it does get warm. LCD tvs are better for watching regular tv for long hours. However, the difference is incomparable when gaming hi def. I have heard about the burning images and haven't experienced it myself. When I bought my TV i asked many people about that before dropping that kind of dough and all of them said it doesn't happen with plasmas made now a days, they just have a bad rep. Whatever you decide I hope you will enjoy! Game on!

Believe it or not the energy efficiency between a plasma and a LCD are pretty close now. IMO I would consider plasma is you want to get the largest size for the money.

I like the LED picture quality the best.

I use LCD for gaming and I am very happy.

LED > LCD > Plasma

This isn't even a hard choice.

Well I have a 60 inch Plasma.  It produces really good blacks.  My TV has a game mode which makes everything more black and realistic.  However Plasmas are expensive go LCD if your on a tight budget.

I use a 55" LG LCD upstarirs. The kids have a 42" Viera plasma downstairs for 360 and ps3.

Ive used them both and can honestly say I cant stand playing on the plasma! The LCD is a much better option (in this house anyway)
