Since cost is one of the primary considerations I'm looking at the 42" plasma's, even down to 40" for LCD's. The room is fairly light controlled and seating distance is between 8-10 feet, but changeable. TV use would be, rarely gaming, Regular DVD initially, and digital cable HD and SD.
I did look at the Tosh 530U and 540U LCD's and they did seem to be a value, especially the 540. But, I've been leaning more toward the plasmas, Samsung
PN42A450 and Panasonic Th-42PX80U, over the LCD's. Do those two fit my situation best? Any other recommendations?
