Can anyone give me some unreliable anecdotal evidence on which to base my own misinformed opinion?

Plasma has much better black levels. Panasonic plasmas are the best bang for the buck.

If you want to know most of the difference, this explains it pretty well.

Thanks for the links, guys, but I've read that stuff already. I wanna get the word from people who actually own units.

Read the customer reviews on Amazon for specific models. I often find them very helpful.

Check out the top sellers in LCD and plasma, and see what people say about those units.

Well those are pretty much the results you are going to get.

My girlfriend has a newer Panasonic LCD and I have a Panasonic Plasma. The black levels in the LCD are not nearly as good as the plasma. Plus, the viewing angle is not as good. After fiddling with the picture settings I think my plasma looks better than pretty much anything I've seen under $2,000. So I would go with a plasma.

Also, if you have a Circuit City still open in your area then now is the time to pick up a really cheap plasma. The 42" 1080p model I have is only $900. :shock:

Most HD video cameras nowadays come with an HDMI port. So you can shoot, connect to your tv or receiver, and use the included remote to skip around whereever you want. Since they're harddrive-based, they can store several hours of 1080p video.

Where exactly are you using it? Plasmas are more reflective that LCDs so if you're in a bright room you might get too much glare.

Most newer plasmas have an anti-glare screen. It still has a little bit of glare, but not nearly as much as before.

You should get yourself a nice plasma then. Is there any one model that you are leaning towards?

I own a 42 inch LG and couldn't be happier. I agree with the black level comments above. The picture quality is better than the LCD equivalent I saw in the store where I had the opportunity to do a real side by side comparison.

sorry i didn't check back earlier. here's what i have. i think i may stepup to blu ray in the next few weeks. it'll be a while before i add hd to the cable bill, though.

i think i may have bought the previous year's model, which is fine with me, but mine doesn't have the wireless link.

I picked up the Panasonic 42" 1080p at Best Buy for around $799 at Best Buy a few months back. Can't beat getting a 1080p plasma at this price. I think Plasma is definetely the way to go if you can afford it.
