It's an LG 42" 720p 600Hz Plasma HDTV** (42PJ550).
The price on these is really good, but I'm worried about images burning into the screen because I play a lot of video games. Is this a concern anymore with plasmas? The picture on this seems better than comparable LCD TVs. Thanks for any help or tip you can give me.

It's not a concern cause games have built in things that prevent it from happening. So does that TV. I have that model in a 42" size.
Newer LED backlighted TVs are pretty good. Plasma is OK, but they are heavy compared to LCD types and consume a lot more power. It's difficult to compare those types in a store as the sales persons tend to spend a bit more time setting up the more expensive sets as they get a bigger commission from the sale. I would read as many reviews as you can find for a particular model before you make a final decision.
handyguy, what are the pro and cons your experienced with the TV? I know they're heavier, but nothing could be as heavy as my current CRT TV! Would you consider it a worthwhile purchase? What about buying extended warranty's? Yes or no?
My 42" plasma weighs just 44lbs with base on it. My 26" CRT weighed 105lbs. My power bill dropped 20% & it's like 2" thick or so. Weird, but that's how it is.
LG has a nice chat function you can chat with techs too on their website.
There are plenty of reviews & it does SD really nice compared to LCDs. It has a game mode so Xbox 360 looks real nice.
