Right here goes, Missus just gave me the go ahead to buy dream TV. Have around £2K (can go higher). I thought about getting a Sharp 30" LCD. I already have a LCD 17" monitor for my pc, i don't rate it for fast moving images, but i'm led to believe the new LCD tv's don't suffer from this. My understanding over a plasma is: -LCD don't get really hot (i have a 2 year old who loves to touch the tv) -life expectancy for a LCD is much longer -LCD has a sharper picture BUT - i went to see a few sets in my local comet, and found that the sharp didn't really have a good picture, whereas a plasma set i saw looked really good (Both running the same distributed video). Question Which one? PS. Would love one with dolby digital built in (less space and wires). Have seen a samsung lcd with this but this goes back to my original question - plasma or lcd?
