I have a Panasonic 42PV500 on order right now, but this afternoon I've been checking out some LCD tv's too and it seems the new Samsung LE40M61 is a very good LCD tv (got the EISA award too!). So I'm starting to worry a little if I made the right choice (coming from a Philips 42" plasma). My questions to you are: * why would you choose a TFT over plasma? (pan PV500 vs Samsung LE40M61) ? * would I notice going from 42" > 40" ? (does this REALLY make a bif difference) * I'm going to use a xbox360 on my new tv, is TFT better suited for this? * will a plasma display the analog signals better than a TFT? Quite a few questions, but I have to be 100% sure about my next purchase. The plasma will cost me about 200 less than the Samsung, so that's not a big issue. Thx for your help!
