I just got HDTV a week ago, and let me tell you that I can never go back now. The difference is so unbelievable, it will blow your mind the first time you see it. I assume your TV is HD capable? If so, you definitely want to go HD. If not, it still sounds like a nice TV. Have fun with it.

Just so you know, LCDs are not immune to image burn-in but do have a better life expectancy than plasmas. Plasmas can start to leak and get dim. Plasmas also have problems displaying the color black. They usually revert to a very dark gray.
LCD is a very good choice. Try to see the exact TV you are purchasing prior to laying down the dough. dead or bright pixels can hinder an otherwise great display.

My dream tv is more like a dream home theater. Id love to have an expansion of the house with a hall leading down to a miniature "Kodak Theater" with a small walk of fame of certain favorite stars. Just simply walk in and have all the greats playing (on a HUGE LCD or Plasma TV).

I'm sure this idea has already been done though :(

I've been researching LCD tvs for some time and they are not at all at risk for burn in. Actually it is impossible. Besides the fact that they do not use phosphorus, They use a backlight on a colored translucent screen there for making it impossible to burn in. I've been researching for a couple of weeks now and not once have I come across anyone or anything saying that an LCD display can get burn in. It's just impossible. Any information on where I could find anything saying something LCD's can get burn in would be appreciated.. Thanks :)

I've supported a few LCD's that displayed the same powerpoint slide for several weeks and even powered off, the latent image was there. I've also seen it happen on LCD projectors that were left on for extended peiods of time. It may or may not be burn in but the result was the same; a latent image that made the display undesirable.
