It's called white-washing, and it cuts the life of the plasma. Basically, I recommend a plasma or LCD based on the following conditions.
Primarily used for BluRay - Plasma
Primarily used for TV - either (but if you're a huge fan of one channel, the logo in the lower right could burn in, so go with LCD)
Any gaming at all - LCD
