I've been eyeing up the Panasonic Plasma display, but just realised that the £700 saving by buying a 36" CRT would pay for a lot of xtra kit (like a HCPC). I'm lucky enough to have a big living room at the moment, so space is not a problem, but it could be in the future if I move house. In terms of picture quality, just how much worse is the Plasma going to be? I have a Pana sc-ht520 home ciname system with a crap display at present that has to be replaced, but no DVD recorder or PC linked up. echo3.
