We have 2 Panasonic's one is a plasma and the other is a LCD. The kids give both of them an absolute workout. I tend to view it though my eyelids
When I went looking for the telly's I upgraded to the next model that was on the shelf simply because of componentry. If you can do your research on the telly you want to buy. Some companies share the same screen manufacturer, some share the same power supply manufacturer.
I am happy with the Panasonic and I also got extended waranty because of how my kids put a show on then walk out of the room and leave the telly burning and my wife turns it on for noise in the room.
The older Plasmas used heaps of juice mine is in the vicinity of 850w. But the car races look brilliant. LCD's don't use anywhere near that, I cant remember the specs on the LCD but I know it is quite a bit lower.
At the end of the day buy the one that is going to give you the best value for money by doing your research. There are a lot of models out there. Good luck
