    LCD pundits point to the belief that LCDs have a longer lifespan than plasma screens. This may have been true of earlier plasma models, which would lose half of their brightness after more than 20,000 hours of viewing. However, many plasmas available on the market today quote a lifespan of about 60,000 hours, which is the same as LCD. This means they will last for almost seven years if left on 24 hours a day.

    if you need more help picking between the to look in my source. Although a bit out dated. Also there is LED LCD tv's out now might want to check them out although i don't know whats better about them besides power efficiency.

    LCD / LED life time is 60,000 hours. but depends of Brand / maker .

    Samsung / LG / Sony / Panasonic / Toshiba / Sharp / Philips usually reached 60,000 hours or a little more,

    those buyer brand / local house brand / China Brand , usually will not reach up to 60,000 hours , some only 40,000 hours .

    Old Plasma models before 2007 is less than 40,000 hours.

    New Plasma after 2008 models by Panasonic / Samsung / LG / Pioneer also New Sanyo 2010 models is 60,000 hours. new 2008 Plasma technology with out burn in / over heat issue ,lower power consumption.

    Panasonic / Samsung / LG / Pioneer 2008 onward Plasma life time no difference with LCD / LED TV. and lasts longer than low price LCD TV for sure.
