I'm in a bind here. I'd love to spring for a 1080 plamsa, but my width constraints limit me to 40" (physical). From what I can tell, some of the new LG 42"/Samsung 43"plasma's will fit, but are all 720p sets. How much more quality can I get from a 1080 40" LCD (under/around $1k) than said 720p Plasmas?
It's for a bedroom, but I've got chronic back issues, and do spend quite a bit of time (practically the whole NHL season, and any time my wife's novelas are on) watching flat from the floor about five feet from the screen (mounted in a cabinet 36-40" high). Will the angle of viewing trump all else here, or can I count on a LED/LCD to give me as good or better viewing experience?
