I to am new to the large screen and will be buying soon when Ive made my mind up. Thing is for me its Plasma or DLP, Im sure you plasma boys have an opinion on DLP and I would like to know the advantages of Plasma over DLP. At the moment the Toshiba 46wm48p DLP is £1400 ish and HD ready.The most cost affective plasma I can find thats HD compatible (is that the same as HD ready?) is the Hitachi 42pd5200h @ £1389. Is this screen any good? I have read about the rainbow affect, any more problems with DLP, what are the draw backs if any (screen burn) with plasma. Comments please, any help would be gratefully recieved.
