I've built myself a nice, silent, HTPC. In addition to a media center the intent is also to use the box as a replacement for all the other PC's we currently have (word processing ect). As such its extremely important to me how my HTPC HDMI out looks on the set.
Space is a constraint in the room - looking at either a 40-42 inch set. I've narrowed it down to two TV's I'm interested in. I've hooked my HTPC up to both at different friends houses (unfortunately not side by side).
LCD _> Aquos LC40E77U
PLASMA _> TCP42G15
I was very happy with the picture on both these sets without any tweaking of settings. I'm not convinced the plasma will be worth the extra 2hun.... I'm hoping that the experts in the forum can help me decide between these sets (and/or offer another alternative in this size and price range).
I'd be very appreciative if anyone who is using one of the sets above in a HTPC situation can weigh in.
