I bought a Samsung PN50650 50" Plasma. It's an awesome tv. Here's the link from cnet.com
The cool thing about new Plasma's is that now they come with new setting for video game players. The plasma I've got has a setting for video game burning pixel replacement...or something like that. I read it in the manual book. What it does if by any chance you see any burn images on the screen, you can use the setting to either reset / replace the pixels.
Also, a friend of mine is a video game addict. He would play 10 to 14 hours a day on his JVC 42 ince Plama TV. This was when they just came out. He paid over $5k for it, and it never game him a problem for 6 years. They just got a new TV now and got a LCD. He said he never had a problem with burn in images. He stated the tv just burned out completely lol after 6 years.
I was going to buy a LCD, but the plasma has better graphics for movies, which is what I watch most of the time. My g/f only plays about 1 to 3 hours if she can a day. If I can get at least 4 years out of this TV, I will be happy
If you're from the UK, enjoy it whilst it lasts.
I read somewhere they're meant to be banning them soon.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, “You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done.”

I have been playing three years plus on my Hitachi plasma! No lag issues at all, plasma is more advanced technology than lcd. I see much more pixelization when I view lcd sets. As for burn in, no way. The tv has burn in protection always on, and I turn the wii and my other consoles burn in protection to double safety.

Burn in happens when you leave a static image on the screen for too long. So, if you leave your game on Pause for hours on end or at the start menu.. it might happen.
I don't know about the Wii, but the 360 has an anti-burn-in feature where the screen goes dim to help prevent that.
