I just finished my basement, which includes a 13' x 18' room pegged as a "TV Room". The room will be fairly dark, with the only sunlight issue being a set of french doors out to the deck (but a curtain can be closed if that becomes an issue). I'm currently thinking 60" to 70", but the wife is pushing for smaller. I figure with the TV mounted on the wall, normal use would be sitting anywhere from 8' to 15' from the screen.
We don't want any of the smart TV options, since we have an Xbox 360 that can do all that, and have no desire for 3D. Typical use would be lots of gaming (xbox 360 and wii), HD movies, and normal HD TV content. I'm not looking for the top of the line / be all end all set, but want a good quality for what we'll use it for. I'm also definitely not against looking at last year's models (as prices would obviously be better).
I'm leaning towards a plasma (even though we've only ever had LCD), due to not having much glare issues and a semi-dark environment, potential wide viewing angle with the size of the room, and good input lag for gaming. Can I get a few options to point me in the right direction to start my search?
