I'm getting ready to buy a new TV, and have done a thorough amount of research and have narrowed it down to the following three: - Panasonic TH-42PX20U/P (42'' HDTV Plasma) - Sony XBR Grand WEGA KF-50XBR800 (50'' LCD rear projection) - Samsung HLN507W (50'' DLP rear projection) First some background info: I'm based in the US, and I watch mainly DVD's, HBO, and whatever I find on cable (like the Simpsons). I don't watch sports, which currently seems to dominate HDTV broadcasting. I'm a casual TV viewer. The seating is about 6 1/2 feet from the TV, with no light sources that could cause glare (all the light fixtures are at the sides of the entertainment center). However I don't want to be limited to my current viewing habits, and would like to be able to explore HDTV broadcasting down the road. Price isn't really an issue, though I don't want to spend *too* much (~$5k/£2.9k). I've seen all three of the HDTV sets in action and was equally impressed with all of them. I was able to find the Panny plasma online for less then $5k, which is why it's included. All three technologies seem to have their ups & downs. Plasma has a much shorter lifespan, LCD can get black pixels, and DLP is only on its second generation and probably not a very mature technology. I'm really at a loss for which one to go with! Any help would be most appreciated, and please go into more detail then just picking which you prefer! Any past experience, pros/cons between the three technologies would be very helpful. I've read a few dozen threads here, and I'm confident the people here are more then knowledgeable enough to aid me. Thanks in advance!
