Plasma better for sports but if you have a lot of glare in the room it will show

LCD good if there is a lot of glare in the room

Try to get a 240hz refresh if you can. The faster the refresh the better for fast moving action.

LED LCD and be sure to get a wireless equipped model because firmware updates are easy (and often automatic).

I have a 65 inch Sharp Aquos that's 120 and have zero issues with any sports. As I've recommended so many times, purchase from Costco because they double the manufacture's warranty. My parents had a 55" LCD Samsung that failed just after the warranty expired and Costco replaced the TV with a better model.

What Dane said.

I have an older 50" Sony LCD which works fine, but I want an LED model soooo bad. The picture is just amazing.

Plasma has superior picture and color accuracy, not to mention the true blacks. Plasma screens are heavy, the glare can suck and they use up way more electricity. The picture quality trumps all those things, IMO.

I have three Vizio LED LCD's and they're great. They're super lightweight, extremely energy efficient and don't exude any heat (which was really important to me).

I'd highly recommend them and they have great prices at Costco.

That said, I don't exactly "miss" them when I'm watching my Sharp Aquos 65 and 47 or even the Vizio 47 LCD. At the end of the day, all of these TV's have great pictures.

Sound bars are required, however, at least for me.

The LCD's and especially the LED's are worthless when it comes to audio. There's no bass, whatsoever (and how could there be in a 2" thick box?).

I purchased a Vizio VSB200 sound bar for our playroom (47" LED) because my 5 year old could no longer hear the TV due to the 1 year old. I mounted it, wired it through the optical port and BAM! Killer sound with very nice bass. It can completely fill our 23x22 room with hardwoods.

I bought a Samsung unit with wireless subwoofer for my parents last Christmas because they have an "Open Floorplan" and my mom could never hear the TV because it faced my Dad's "chair". I hooked it up for them and it immediately filled the room as well. They're ecstatic.

I purchased the same one for a room in my house and it sounds just as good. But the family room (65") was always lacking in sound with the TV volume only. I had to turn it up to like 50-55 before I could hear anything and again, no bottom end. So, I purchased another Vizio VSB200 last week and plugged in my existing 10" sub and it's just flat out amazing. Completely fills the room and sounds awesome. I'm hooking up my rear's tomorrow via an optical splitter and I'll have a true home theater sound, finally.

Now all I need to do is get everyone out of the house so I can use it.

Cool, man. I always wondered about those. Thanks.

I can't get away with stuff like that because my wife wants things sleek in "living" rooms.

And as a someone who cares greatly and deeply about sound, if you purchase the "right" kit for your room, they can sound great.
