    :hiya: First of all hello to all is this forum,have been reading most of it & i found it interesting. My question is which is better Plasma or Lcd,at the moment i have a 42" rear projection and in the not too distant future i will upgrade to one or other. Also in either case which particular model is best? HDTV is coming as is digital so i would want the choice to be future proof. Many thanks. :lease:

    No such thing as a "future proof" TV. There will always be a better model just around the corner.

    As far as LCD vs Plasma goes, it's swings and roundabouts.

    Plasma gives colour reproduction which is closer to CRT colours.
    Plasma screens are cheaper in the larger sizes.
    Plasma screens have a wider viewing angle
    Plasma screens have "blacker blacks", especially at acute viewing angles
    LCD screens are lighter in weight
    LCD screens do not suffer from burn-in
    LCD screens use less electricity
    LCD screens run cooler

    It's all be done before along with the usual LCD vs Plasma, CRT vs Plasma, DLP vs LCD etc etc. There's loads of threads out there you just need to use the search facility.
