    I am looking to purchase a 40 to 50" HD flat screen for the lounge. I really do want to be able to use it for the following:

    1. Usual TV viewing via SKY HD

    2. Windows Desktop applications (mainly internet & email)

    3. HTPC (possibily)


    Should I look towards LCD or Plasma?

    Sitting distance is 6 to 7 feet away?


    Thanks

    At that distance, you'll see SDE on both 720p PDP and LCD. So, you might wanna look into 1080p TV with EDID on HDMI for HTPC compatibility.

    Personally I'd avoid LCD at those screen sizes. A top end plasma will blow away any of the large screen LCDs currently on the UK market.
