I was leaning towards the 50PV450 because of the extra 3 inches and also due to plasmas being better for movies, sports and in rooms with less light.
However my apartment faces the south/southeast and has 2 adjoining windows 3 ft. off the ground. The windows can be covered by blinds but I usually leave the lower 3 feet high by 2.5 feet wide section unblinded. I am worried about the plasma/glare issue. I live in Canada, so while the day is short in the winter, the tree in front of my apt. window loses its leaves while the warmer seasons might have their own issues. It's tough to tell now as the past few days have been overcast or muggy and ambient light is not something I usually am concerned about. I'm not somebody who notices most things unless they bothers me.
I do recall some days where I had to pull down the blinds or move the angle of my TV while watching my 28' CRT, but this was infrequent.
Is the 3 inches, better sports/movie viewing and a more realistic picture (subjective) worth trading for pretty much eliminating the glare problem and the burn-in/IR issues? I don't do that much daytime viewing aside from football and other sports - haven't been watching much TV at all lately (though that will increase with a new TV).
(edit: I just looked at google maps and realized that I am pretty much facing the south, with a minor angle to the east)
