Thinking of getting a new TV, but don't really understand the difference

A plasma will look slightly better, but it also has a problem with burn in. If you play video games, then chances are there will be some sort of object that stays in the same place for a long amount of time (like a health bar) that can cause burn in. If you are going to use this primarily for TV and movies then I suggest a plasma, but if you also are interested in video games I suggest and LCD.

Plasma Screens are often nicer looking, but that's getting to be a small difference because LCD screens have gotten so awesome, plus they have horrible burn-in.

I actually recommends a DLP screen. DLP, or Digital Light Processing, is the reflection of light through a color wheel onto a computer processor covered in tiny mirrors. These have excellent definition for a low price. However, these are almost exclusively big screens.

If you want plasma or LCD, however, go with LCD. LCD is often more reliable, too.

On the contrary, if you have a HD TV you won't notice much change in quality unless you have a larger TV.

52 is pushing it, I would say the majority of people have a large enough tv to notice the difference. And there is a huge difference.

Yes but only if you have a large enough TV. If its small, there is no real difference hit until around the 35' mark.

I have a plasma screen for my computor, no burns from games ect so far, and i've had it over 2 years. The 'family' TV is an LCD and I probably prefer the plasma just because the LCD looks horrible if you sit to close which I do when im using it as a screen.

well I've racked up almost a month of WoW playtime and that hasn't caused burns yet. iTunes is open constantly in the same corner and theres no burns. Apart from those games I don't have anything open often enough to cause burns anyway.
