    ..............from a simple man!!!!!

    Have looked through many threads for a straight answer, but just too much to read.

    If going for a 42" screen, where Sky sports, movies and kids channels dominate, what's best...........Plasma or LCD?

    ...(when I say best, I mean pic. quality above most other things)

    In my opnion though much closer than it was a good Plasma is better than an LCD, however when I say good I mean Panasonic, Pioneer or Hitachi. Some plasmas are very poor so you really need to go to a store and compare, then draw up a shortlist.

    If you are choosing between plasma and lcd and planning on watching football then I would go for plasma.

    A lot of LCD screens have slow reponse times and can blur when fast action is happening on screen (similar to 'ghosting' on lcd screens for computers) - faster lcds are appearing but imho plasma is better - there are pros and cons for both.

    As regards picture quality then you can't go wrong with a panny viera 42" - have a gander at the 42pv500 prices thread to get ideas on where to get it the cheapest - you'll need about £2 - £2.5k.

    :cool:
