Nick, Hastings I'm an Engineer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Samsung Plasma - excellent. In my opinion still better quality image and better value for money than an LCD of the same size. Plenty of HDMI, Scart, VGA, and other connectors.
Bad points:
Have not found any yet. No problems with burn-in. 6000 hr estimated lifetime is comparable with LCD.
