Originally, my choice had been the Sammy 4095 1080p lcd...but then I got to thinking, what if the kids have a lapse of disciplinary memory and throw something inadvertantly at the tv? I assume the lcd screen couldn't take the hit, correct? The same thing applies with the Wiimote, if it slips from any of our hands...So, I thought about plasma...but I just don't want to deal with the IR issues or the possibility of burn-in. I know, I know, they have come a long way, but I don't want to deal with it....So my next choice is DLP... The screen should take a hit but I really don't want a DLP set as I see the rainbow during fast moving scenes (which bugs the hell outta me)...Video games frequently have fast moving scenes... I was thinking the Sammy 5087 for this.
Price IS a factor here, as I don't want to spend more than $2000 for a set. I want a set that is 1080p and that is partly what is crippling my decision -- I REACH OUT FOR HELP!!!!!!
I'm probably a little too picky, but dammit, I'm spending my own money!
Do I have alternatives? I
