The main advantage of LED TVs (which are still LCD panels, but with LED backlighting instead of fluorescent) is that they can locally dim and brighten different areas of the screen on demand, greatly increasing their contrast and finally delivering truer blacks.

If you can control the lighting in the room (especially sunlight), though, a plasma like the one that you linked to will deliver more bang for the buck. I'd be willing to bet that its picture is just as nice as that Samsung's, and bigger, to boot, for $900 less. If you do get a plasma, Panasonic has pretty consistently made the best models.

"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
