    I would like to buy a 42" screen for the theatre I work in for the foyer to show (low bit rate) feeds from the auditorium and DVDs. It will be set up high. Because of the low quality feeds etc am I better getting LCD or Plasma? If so which, I have approx £1200 to spend. Any help much appreciated..

    I would go for the LCD option merely on the life of the panel which should be double that of the plasma. But you could always get two cheapish plasmas, LCDs of 42inch are very expensive.

    Tescos, Sainsburys, B&Q, HMV to name but a few run PWD panasonics for public display. We've put them in NHS hospitals, estate agents, and a lot of private homes of course. It's the man for the job.
