Re: Plasma or LCD???I recently got a Panasonic Plasma, 50 inch, 720. It was pretty darn cheap. I researched this pretty much and plamsa have better color and picture. I would put my 720 up against a 1080 LCD. The picture is better, it looks amazing, the price is now 700. As far as life, they are both rated the same now. I have a big bay window and have never noticed the "glare" they talk about with plasmas. It is better in the dark but what TV isn't? For the money I just don't see you going wrong. You aren't going to touch a 50 inch or even 46 LCD for that price and it is the best plasma out since Pioneer got out making them. Everyone that comes over compliments me. I have watched blue ray on mine and on friends 1080 LCD and the picture of a plasma kills them. Also, 600 hz speed. Sports rule.
