I'm looking to go buy a nice 37" Plasma or LCD tv in the coming weeks. I'm having a hard time deciding which of the two technologies is right for me.
DLP has the advantage of better contrast, more vibrant colors.
LCD has the advantage of less power consumption, no burn-in worries, and glare is much less of an issue.
I like to watch movies so the plasma would be better there, but I also do some amount of gaming, and I don't want to have to always worry about burn-in, which also could occur from watching SD tv with the black bars on the side of the screen. Also it would be in a room next to a large sliding glass door, so the glare is an issue too.
So any thoughts? The pic quality is really nice on the plasma, but I wouldn't want to always have to worry about burn-in. I've read that it's not much of an issue with new high-end plasmas, but I probably would be getting a lower end one.
