there is a little bit of miss informantion in this thread, as always
. buying an LCD or plasma depends how much movie watching you do, when(night or day time watching) and also how much you value a natural picture. even though TVs are getting better there is still a lot of junk out there! spend the money and get a good t.v and you wont look back. 1080p isnt everything, but if you can buy a current model in 1080p why not. if i couldve i wouldve waited for the 9th gen pioneer 50inch 1080p, but i found 42inch at a realy good price and this time next year ill buy the 50 inch and move the 42 to the bed room, this way ill have 2 t.v for the price of one.
i bought a pioneer plasma 1024x 768. - but i made sure i bought a good one.
