    LCD. Plasma is on the way out and they are nowhere near as reliable as LCDs.

    Huge possible debate here.

    Here's a simple one for you tick box. Is there going to be a window behind your head when your watching tv?

    If yes - Its a tick for LCD on you decision list (very little screen reflection)

    If no - That's one for Plasma (lots of reflection)

    wouldn't you know it , looking at a 42 inch plasma [at] 888 Oz .


    Is there going to be a window behind your head when your watching tv?
    that's a can of worms in it's self , open plan lounge / dinning / kitchen so kitchen window and front door are say 5m back .

    Forget Plasma.
    Even LCD is going out.
    Think Laser is the next thing......
