    Default Projection vs Flat panel

    i am torn between buying a projection tv or a flat screen. i can get a huge projection tv with 1080i for minimal price. for the same price i could get a 42" flat panel with only 720p.
    which one would you guys buy? i know projections have made huge advances and pictures are way better than they used to be. i am leaning that way. i can get a 55" for the price of a 43" flat.
    any advice?

    Keep leaning the way you're leaning and buy the projection. Besides, it's 1080i as opposed to 720i. It's the same price and it's a bigger tv.
    What are the name brands of each?

    Well I bought a 55 in high Definition Mitsubishi 5 years ago about 1 years ago the convergence chips went bad. And the picture started to have a bend in it, at the top and the bottom of the screen. I Had the repairman come out it cost about 400 bucks to get them changed. So service plans are some thing you mite want to think about. While he was there I ask what was the best out now days. He said to go with a DLP they have the fewest calls on them.
