    Hi I am thinking of putting a 32" screen in my summer house, The building has a hot tub in it, although the screen will be mounted nowhere near the tub. I am unsure on what type(plasma / lcd) or make of screen to go for! my budget is aprox £1500 + -.

    From what you've said, LCD sounds your best option.

    Hi, i think that a Plasma tv it's better for you.
    Why?
    Plasma has a short life (20000-30000 Hours) but you don't need to see it for 8 hour a day all the year. (lcd life 50000-60000 hours)
    Lcd needs a good signal plus a Scaler for have the same aspect of Plasma.
    Plasma tv cost low than an lcd.
    That's what i shall do, but i have and love my lcd, my scaler (Zinwell) and some problems....
    Bye Steven.

    No. There are very few 32" plasma TVs available, and they will cost the same amount as an LCD (much more for a hi-def one). Also, for a TV that costs £1,500+, it should last much longer than 30,000 hours.

    What do you mean, when you say LCDs need a scaler to have the same aspect as a plasmas?
