I bought my TV several years ago and with the somewhat drastic price drop on flat screen TVs since then I'm thinking about upgrading since my current TV sometimes gets weird little burn ins of static objects (like HUD elements) when I play games for extended periods of time. They're not all that prevalent and usually fade away fairly fast but stuff like that still kind of bug me. Hence, the idea of getting a new gaming focused HDTV (and using my current one for my old retro consoles).
So what's what for HDTVs these days? Should one get an LCD, LED or Plasma? What Brands are generally trustworthy? What kind of things should you be mindful of when buying one and what sort of "stats" do you generally need? Basically I'm trying to get all caught up to speed here.

As on the other board, if gaming performance is your primary objective, you want a monitor. If you want a new display, The Dude and I have already answered your questions. You need to start doing some research.
