Someone said plasma is better,but others said no. So did anyone once buy LCD or plasma, would you please share some usage experience to us? It will give others a big help to make decision!

I have a plasma tv. Plasma has a higher contrast ratio than LCD (whites are brighter, blacks are darker, etc..), but they have a small burn-in problem (kinda like CRTs). That means if you watch a 2-hour movie with black borders on the top and bottom, and then you watch something else, you might still be able to see those borders for a while (it disappears by itself, or you can view something bright to speed it up). The only problem I see with LCDs is that when you are looking at a black image, you can see the backlight bleeding through (the light is always on). For plasma, each pixel is their own light source, so if a black image is on the screen, all the pixels are turned off. So it all comes down to what is important to you--The higher resolution (amount of lines) of LCDs, or the contrast of Plasma?
