Plasma is best for sports.
Which one? Well, what's your budget and viewing distance?

Thanks for your opinion.Seems from most people around the net Pioneer & Panasonic are the 2 best. Just don't trust salespeople in electronics stores to give an unbiased opinion.

I talked to a guy at Best Buy today. He was the most well informed sales person I've ever encountered in retail. Surely not a product of Best Buy training.

Plasma is one of the best for sports, it's bright, has huge off axis viewing capabilities, and doesn't suffer motion blur. Samsung, Pioneer, and Panasonic are 3 good companies that spring to mind. Plasmas do, however, lack the punch of an LCD or a DLP tv, so if that's really important to you I would suggest a DLP RPTV, they are very bright and don't suffer from the motion blur of LCDs.

I would go with having a good HD signal and some good calibration. I"ll take the Pana PX75U for the price. CC has it for under a grand.

I'd pick a plasma from Samsung, Pioneer, or Panasonic.. whichever one fits your budget and looks the best to you. Plasmas handle motion the best, and there is no questioning this.
