Thanks for your quick repsponse.
The room has light coming in from windows. But we use shutters for serious viewing :-)
Surely LCD will win on reflections -- even Kuro will lose here I guess.
Squarish room 20'x20'. Seating along two sides: Not at all in the center. TV on one wall a bit off center:
That was one reason to choose the plasma. But when I looked at Samsung 52A650, its
coverage was decent off center, but am not sure of its black levels-- did not have a chance to compare it with a plasma.
Plus the 4ms refresh time was telling on big screens-- I could see jerkiness on 65" sharp. I figure the technology will go to 2ms refresh some time this/next year.
I was not willing to disturb the sales person to setup a comparable tests, particularly when their prices are awfully padded -- and I am most likely not going to buy from them much as I want..!
