Would a Plasma TV be the better choice for me?

Asked by Buttonstc (27557points) January 26th, 2014 from iPhone

I’m now in the market for a larger size TV so have been scouring ads for awhile now. I currently have an LCD screen.

I’m aware that LCD screens have a finite number of hours per lifetime of the TV. Granted, its a pretty large number, but still…..

I have the unfortunate tendency to fall asleep while watching TV and also having it on in the background while doing something else. So its not unusual for it to be on round the clock more often than not.

I’m assuming its different for Plasma screens so am wondering if that might be the better choice for me this time around.

I’m aware that one of the downsides to Plasma is a problem with possible burn-in if left on an image for extended periods. But that doesn’t really happen with me so I’m not worried about that.

So, what other downsides are there to Plasma, if any? Considering the info I’ve given is there any reason why I should not choose a Plasma screen this time around?

Your tech opinions would be greatly welcomed. Thanks.
