I am looking for some advice on choosing a glass front model like the KDL 55hx850 or going with something else in Plasma. I like LED technology best however it seems that $ for $ a Panny 55VT50, at $250 less, seems to be a better deal than the Sony. Or should I expand my selections and consider a screen protector?
Currently I have a 7 yo 46" DLP which still works but the time is right for an upgrade to a 55" TV. I have a 10 yo and 7 yo who watch TV and play in the (not overly bright) living room where the TV is. I will need something with a kid friendly screen. I am looking to be in the $1700 range. The Sony is not at 1700 yet but it may be closer soon. Any input or advice on whether to go with the 55HX850, 55VT50 or other considerations, would be greatly appreciated.
