    Default Buying TV - Plasma or LCD?

    Hey guys, me and parents have been planning to buy a new TV for circa $2000-3000, and we are puzzled which type to choose. Every market we've gone to had a different persective, one said Plasma rule forever, others - that plasma pixels burnout in like 2 years and LCD are more durable. Honestly, I don't see big difference between them, except LCD picture looks a bit artificial and with some sort of delay (in the above mentioned price range). What would you advice in such case?
    Thanks

    Go for DLP. Plasmas have an iffy lifespan, and LCDs generally tend to fade out after a few years. DLP's easiest to maintain.

    Good discussion going on here, too:

    I'm not sure if those are even in our stores? Nobody told us about them. Maybe because we didn't ask ? lol, I'm such a lamer when it comes to anything aside from computers.

    I've seen LCDs and Plasmas being discussed in that thread so if you mods choose to close it I'll re-ask my question there.

    And thanks jws.

    Mishar, I have a Hitachi 57' LCD HDTV and I love it. It was around $3500. I have excellent picture quality, tons of features, and the sound is outstanding.

    Cool, actually the whole problem is the size of this box with moving pictures, we don't have enough space in our appartment to make it fit the overal design. That's why we want to go with a flat TV, so it wouldn't take much space.
    $3500 is holy damn how much! Does the cost include 5.1 (or is it 7.1) stereo system or you had to purchase it additionally?
