The only knock I've heard against plasma TVs is that they are extremely expensive to repair.

DLP's aren't cheap to fix either. My friend has one and one of the bulbs or lights went out and $600 later.

I definitely agree with you on this......I like DLP in the Samsung the best......

My neighbor has an LG lcd same size 42 " and there is a noticeable differnce in quality. The only other difference is he has the local cable HD (comcast) and I have Satelite.
I would think the difference is definitely because he bought the LG....Not a company I would touch for anything. Not even a cell phone.

You may be right my parents have the exact same Panasonic Plasma model as me only 60" and Cable as opposed to Satelite. While the picture there isnt as sharp as mine on some stations it is vastly better than that of my neighbors.

The only other difference that I forgot about in my earlier post that could contribute to my neighbors inferior picture (besides LG not being great) is I know he didnt use high end connections for his video feeds he just slapped it together. Im pretty sure he is using the same old coax connections that have been there for years.

I bought a Toshiba LCD in December and I am pleased with it. I went in thinking that I'd go for a Sony or Samsung. I liked the picture on the Toshiba better. I don't usually buy an extended warrenty on anything however I was advised to do that for a tv purchase, and did.

For every bad story with plasma Im sure you could you could find one for LCD.
....It really comes down to what you prefer and what goes well in the room you are putting it in. You can have 2 different people look at the same picture on the same screen and see two completely different things. The same can be said for sound systems. You and I could both like a song but it may sound like crap to you and good to me, depending on what the sound is coming out of. Bottom line once you determine room size and television, speaker placement. You have to decide on what looks and sounds good to you. After all you are the one spending the cash and you will be the one mostly enjoying your home theatre.

I am going to Circuit City on Saturday. I guess it comes to liking the picture as well. Guess I'll get an idea of what I want.

I went with a Sony 55" SXRD rear projection set last summer because a 50" was too small for my room (couches sit back 8 to 12 feet from screen) and I did not feel like taking out a second mortgage for a +50" plasma. Rear projection is a dying technology as the cost/size advantage over plasma/LCD decreases and you get hit with replacing a $250 bulb every 2 yeras or so. But I wanted a big set for Sunday Ticket viewing and am very pleased with my purchase and teh picture quality off DirectV.

The rap on plasma is the glare off the screen if you are in a well lit room but the latest Panasonic plasmas supposedly have a reduced glare screen.

LCD has been limited in size but they are getting bigger (up to 52" now) - the tech who calibrated my set says LCD is the wave of the future. My parents purchased a Samsung 46" LCD recently and the picture (Time-Warner cable) looked great to me.

If you want to link to a great site on HDTV, I have provided the link to a good CNet HDTV site

As floodcitygirlsays, buy the extended warranty - I bought my HDTV at BrandSmart and the warranty through Sony and got a better deal than what the store offered for its extended warranty.
