    Burn ins are a thing of the past really. I've had 4 different Samsung plasmas with no burn ins. I would highly recommend getting a plasma because they have crazy contrast ratios that lcds and LEDs can't touch. I love my current 46" samsung and it's great for watching movies that have a lot of darkness. Also, plasmas have like 600hz typically I believe. Panasonic is one of the better tv brands and you will be pleased with the TV.

    If you don't want a plasma though, I'd recommend Samsung obviously.

    I have the Panasonic Viera but 42" and the TV is amazing. I strongly recommend it. As Vihzel stated, the burn-ins are a thing of the past. All Plasma's these days come with anti-image retention. If you are a big movie watcher or gamer then the Plasma is the way to go.

    Also, if those are only instore deals, then I would recommend getting in line early because TVs always sell fast on Black Friday... As evidenced by this thread. :)
