After decades of small or no TV, and after doing weeks of research, bought a 42 inch HD Pioneer plasma with full multi-media surround.

When I first started looking at tv's I really didn't know what to look for, they all looked good in the stores. After doing some research I started paying attention to refresh rate, pixelation, color bleeding, etc. The Pioneer plasma had the fastest refresh rate, virtually no pixelation when viewing very busy screens like a football stadium full of people, and when blue was next to black in a movie scene, the colors didn't run together.

I agree with a previous poster, the sales people will swear by the one their boss tells them to push. Google "flat screen tv comparisons" or "what is the best value in LCD/Plasma" or even "who makes the most dependable flat screen tv"? No matter what you buy, you'll feel like you paid too much, in most cases. The important thing is to like what you buy, not that you got the very best for the cheapest price.

Don't forget to check out the remote control, it's a big part of the tv experience. The pioneer comes with two remotes, one is just a channel and volume changer (easy and fast), the other has all the functions on it for the techies. I prefer the channel changer. lol!

there is indeed no winners - plasma or lcd

but

1) a plasma tv looks better for watching tv channels while it lacks the detail when watching dvds. vice versa for lcds.

2) a lcd tv tends to be TOO bright in room light.(newer models rectified this disadvantage) but looks extremely clear and colourful under BRIGHT lightings in retail stores. if your house is as bright as best denki, go get a lcd tv. :lol:
