    Has anybody recent experience of trying a PLasma / LCD in a conservatory ? Thinking of buying a 42" Panasonic, but concerned about the safety issues

    Don't believe the quotes on contrast ratios and brightness, Plasmas are poor in bright light. Unless your conservatory has good blinds or curtains, day use will be a problem.

    An LCD will work best, can't see a safety issue really with either, but the light will make the panny unwatchable. A sharp 37 will be the nearest size/ price/ quality compromise.

    Hey Rusty,

    I seem to remember this has been asked before, can't remember what the outcome was :rolleyes: however what does stick out in my mind was you have to be careful regarding your house insurance as i'm not sure your screen would be covered under the general household policy if situated in a conservatory :eek:
