Default Re: new tv for me!! help me decide!!

When you are shopping around ask the Sales person what they have at home. I was originally looking at LCD's but chose a Plasma as most of the guys I spoke with had plasmas. As for Screen glare how often do you really sit down in a bright room to watch TV? This is the only time a glare issue will really effect your veiwing. Also consider you will pay more for 120Hz - plasma motion blurr is not the issue like LCD. When viewing and comparing in stores consider most settings for brightness is usually set high. Burn in issue in plasmas is not what it once was. Take a DVD or Blue-ray with you & ask them to play it - or if a gamer maybe see if you can try a game - get them to turn on a sporting event (Baseball, hockey, basketball, Football, etc.) Go see a friends for reference . Also most cable & satillite HD broadcasts are only 1080i or 720p.

Hope this helps
