Well, as predicted 'plasma' prices are falling, & Lcds are getting bigger. The former seem to be reaching the pain/pleasure/cost/value thresholds for me, & my 50" Sony projector Tv is looking weary by comparison.(wife also says it's too intrusive) I fancy a replacement & for about £2K there is a fair selection of up to 42" plasmas. My choices broadly as follows 32" CRT cheapest & no qualms about pq - but SMALL screen & huge sets v bulky (lots of lovely Sonys - my favorites) Sony KE32TS2 32" Plasma Television or Hitachi C32PD5200 32" Plasma good looking but SMALL screen. SONY KE42TS1 from what I can see, older model-not particularly well reviewed, but at sub £2K it is a Sony. Selection of Techwood, Reilsys, etc cheap panels that few people here seem to like. Tiny LCD, or bigger budget. I was in the 'local' Sony center & their plasmas, LCDs & CRTs all looked tasty (but weren't the models above). The LCD particularly, & being an established technology is apealing (not on price though) I've waited thus far & from a couple of years ago £4k+ was the norm for most plasma screens, LCDs were 15", 'does the panel think' I'd be better waiting some more. Are the next round of Christmas/new year sales going to offer more shaved off the prices or more 'reputable' screens down to £2. I'm still wary that many plasma owners on here seem to suffer disatisfaction having spent lots & lots. My ass is sore from this fence - something's got to give.
