Not sure if this belongs in LCD or Plasma because I cant make up my mind which I should be going for so Im posting it in both. Ive been a member of these forums for a couple of years or so now and have enjoyed the badinage and gained much useful knowledge. (And, I hope, imparted a little as well) I was an early adopter of the Panasonic AE 100 LCD projector, largely due to the information gathered here. Touch wood, Im still happy with it. Does anyone else find the current situation with plasma and LCD somewhat depressing? Ive never before been in the position to buy without having a sensible choice of product waiting for my cash. Here I am with £12-3500 burning a hole in my pocket and there is nothing in the 32 50 area that really floats my boat. Perhaps this is just one of those times when you need to sit on your hands. I would have jumped in for a Sharp GA4E but cant be ar*ed to chase around every retailer in the country to get a screen that might well have several dead pixels. At the other extreme, I have enormous respect for the Pioneer 505 but, the price is just scary for such a volatile technology. Im not sure what Im trying to achieve with this post but Id really like to buy a big, thin, flat screen and Im just not convinced there is one out there at the right price with enough future proofing and a long enough life. (I keep my screens for at least ten years unless they fail, terminally) I guess Im hoping someone is going to say, go for this, now. Because But, without any real expectation that they will. I think it is rather a sad reflection on the global industry that the money is here waiting and the product doesnt seem to be.
