[quote=bobby_t1]Wow, I never considered HP for my plasma buying consideration, but based on this thread and the relatively lower price it's the front runner!
Questions I have:
1) SD on RPLCD vs PDP
Hard to say. My only experience with SD on an HDTV has been with this HP plasma and a 1080p LCD flat panel. The HP does SD a tad better than the LCD, but I have no idea if the HP would look better than a RPLCD. I posted some SD pics in this thread. Take a look and let me know if you have any questions.
2) How is the reflectivity of the glass?
The glass is very reflective. As long as your window is to the left or right of your TV, I don't think you'll have a problem. I have a large window directly in front of my plasma (facing the TV). That's probably the absolute worst case scenario for PDP. My only saving grace is that the window faces north and doesn't get any direct sun light into the house. Also, I have a roller shade that covers the window (but it's white and is more for privacy than killing a glare).
So how bad is it? During the day, the reflection is pretty strong if I'm sitting dead center on my couch with the window directly behind me and the plasma directly in front of me. This is with the roller shade down. Even with my contrast and brightness turned down below 50 I can watch the TV , but the glare is definitely noticeable.
Now, if I sit on the right side of my courch, I don't see the reflection at all. So, during the day that's typically where I sit and experience no glare. My point in saying all of this is that even with a window directly in front of the PDP, I can still watch it without glare by sitting a few feet to the right. If you're window is to the left or right of your TV and you're sitting directly in front of the PDP, you should be fine.
