Re: new tv for me!! help me decide!!
It will depend on your tolerance for reflections from the screen and the room it will be in. If you have a lot of windows with no heavy drapes and bright colored walls, you may be better off with a LCD screen. One that does not reflect.
When I was in the business (before I retired) I was asked to switch out some plasmas due to glare. Never been asked to switch out a LCD due to picture quality or poor blacks. That may be why they are pushing LCD screens over plasmas or maybe they make more money on LCDs.
If you have good light control, don't use the screen as a computer monitor and want the very best picture then plasmas are the way to go.
