So I'm looking into buying a TV for my bedroom.

Anyone have any helpful hints or advice on LCD or a Plasma TV?

What kind do you have? Any helpful hints or things I need to look for avoid?

Either a 40' 42' or a 46' for size. I want one with 1080p

Get an LCD, if you play video games, the plasma screen can get phosphor burn (it'll leave images burnt into the screen, ruining your TV).

I just worry about dead pixels on the LCD. A lil dot like that would drive me insane!

That is true. I could see you looking at that one spot and not even pay attention to the show.

Marge: I think owning the Denver Broncos is pretty good.
Homer: Yeah, yeah.
Marge: Well, explain to me why it isn't.
Homer: (Sighs) You just don't understand football, Marge.

I got the samsung 50" plasma earlier this year. So far so good. The contrast ratios are much better for the plasmas but J is right that burn in is a bitch! Thanks [adult swim]!
