I do not wish to come across as confrontational, but I am wondering why plasma is so popular. I'm on the lookout for a new telly but, after several viewings, both plasma and LCD seem rubbish compared to my old rear projection CRT. There is no way I would buy anything but CRT. Is it just the aesthetics of the equipment which appeals? Surely you guys/gals posting on here are aware of the differences in picture quality between CRT and every other option available to us. What then are your reasons for choosing plasma?
