One downside I have to point out of my plasma is the amount of heat it gives off. I'm not sure if LCDs are the same but man does it raise the temperature in the room

How is that supposed to work?

AFAIK the only "protection" that exists for burn in is turning off the screen, or using a screensaver. There is nothing that can stop the screen from aging unevenly, short of adding constant static to the screen which would ruin the picture quality.

Ah yes the 1080p matrix trilogy looks great on my 60" sxrd tv.
I have the sxrd and a pioneer plasma, both look great imo. The only beef i have with the sxrd is that its bright as ****. It shoots a beam of light right in your face, maybe i should adjust the brightness a bit but still. I'd guess the plasma is easier on the eyes.

Take it off "Vivid" and calibrate it properly. The SXRD can go lower light level than the plasma and hold its accuracy.

That is where I was getting at; Auto Pixel Shift, Signal Pattern Processor, All White image. Some tools integrated within the set. Also some manufacturers are utilizing different phosphar gases in plasma display that allow for better resistance against burn in, I mean I personally have had my display over a year now and no signs of aging or burn-in as of yet

All of the display technologies are dead. None have any real room left to grow. Too bad SED has basically sunk.

Tube picture quality *still* hasn't been achieved in anything other than SED.

OLED is the future of display technology IMO. Paper thin, flexible, and the material itself emits the light so you can have insanely high contrast ratios. And once the technology becomes widespread, OLED displays will be extremely cheap to make.

CRT > OLED > LCD

Does nothing for me. OLED is also not planned for anything other than small TV's and PC displays.

You are out for a loooong wait because SED is almost dead. This is technology from the mid 80s, with patents owned by CANON and they failed to mass-market the panels.

I know I was just being sarcastic. Let me see if the JUly 4th week brings some good deals. Another TV of interest is the Westinghouse 37" Full HD 1080p at Costco but Shipping totally kills the deal for me.
