    Default HELP: Small LCD or BIG PLASMA ???

    Hi....am in a dilemma: Was offered these 2 items at the same attractive price but different size and warranty periods:

    a: 42 Inch LG Plasma TV, 3 year warranty

    b: 32 Inch LG LCD TV, 1 year warranty

    Both same price (below $800!) Which one to choose???????

    Didn't like the size of the 32 inch (like a glorified computer monitor) and also heard that 'image response' time of LCD is slightly slower than Plasma.

    However, heard that Plasma technology is dying (may be expensive to maintain - but got 3 year warranty) and power consumption high but image quality damn shiok.

    How???????? HELP!

    Whoever and whatever gave you the idea?

    Size matters, judge with your own eyes. Once you lay eyes on the plasma, that tiny 32" LCD will not be enough.

    If you are going for IQ, go plasma. If you are looking at sizes smaller than 40", go LCD.

    I've got my panny 40" plasma which I simply love the IQ from day to day SD streaming to DVD playbacks to HD movies to PS3 gaming to avi playbacks. On the other hand, I have a sharp 32" in my room which serves for my PS3, HD movies and avi playbacks. SD streaming, DVD playbacks not as fantastic as plasma.

    Go for Plasma, good IQ, gentle for eyes, solid panel, u try knock the display panel of Plasma with your hand, nothing will happen, but if you try it on LCD panel, good luck!
