I always liked the picture on my friend's panasonic plasma, blacks just seemed blacker. Thing is I do play games, and don't wanna risk burning a HUD into the display, thats why I'd rather stick w/ either and LCD or DLP based TV, and sacrifice the contrast. I had a DLP once in my office conference room, but my office got broken into and it got stolen. I did notice the rainbow effect on it, but only on white backgrounds. But DLPs are available in some massive sizes for cheap, and I don't need something that can hang up on a wall.
