Hi,

Why would you only go with and LED to use with HTPC? Any reasons why a Plasma would be good with HTPC? I'm asking because I have a HTPC and the ST50 is the one I'm looking at. Thanks.

?? it's 59 inches. pq and 3d are excellent, probably better than the Panasonic. Also supposedly less prone to IR.

Oh, I see. You're using it as a PC also, in that case, LED is the way to go.

If you're going to go Samsung, go with the E6500. Same PQ as the 7000/8000 minus the super-thin casing and some of the superfluous features. David Katzmaier at Cnet even said the PQ on the E6500 was slightly superior, for whatever that's worth. At your friend's price-point he can grab the 60".
