I had good luck with lcd's as far as not breaking down. But the quality was not on par and ive realized this recently. My roomate got a 58 sammy plasma. I think 550. Anyway, the picture quality, blacks and motion were incredible compared to my toshiba lcd. I took the same movie we watched, star trek first contact blu ray and watched it on mine. Didnt even look or feel the same. That's when i realized, i wanted a plasma. So i started to do alot of research. Months of it. I always do before i buy something of this magnatude. Plus, my lcd had a "slight" issue artifacting. But seemed to be only with cable feeds showing HD footage of fast moving action. But that' was enough also to annoy me. Plus, my lcd had uneven lighting and murky blacks.
As far as brands, 2 westinghouses and toshiba regza. The toshiba is good, but it has its flaws and a bad flashlight effect. The westinghouse, the 2nd one i had, my bro uses and likes that more then my toshiba. I wont go into why. Anyway.
I really was happy with this LG set, till the line appeared. You know that groin kick feeling, when you get super happy, only to get shot down soon after. Yea, that feeling.
Any suggestions? Should i return it for the same set, or try a different brand, or even LED? LED is still lcd, so it has the motion "flaws" and is ungodly expensive, so i'm avoiding that. I was thinking about the sammy C550 possibly or a panny like the G10 as a plasma alternative.
Bottom line, is i just want a good working unit. I'm big into watching movies, and i get depressed if things like this happen.
