either way plasma is 99% of the time a better choice, unless are going to put it outside of the house or have a house that has almost everything in windows or those 8ft window celings
lcd has improved but its still not as good as plasma when it comes to picture quality period, im not trying to start a lcd vs plasma war its just proven fact backlighting just adds more issues like zone lighting blooming and blacks are just blacks but shadow detail gets hurt as well. led based lcd are also issues as they dont have array/ front led lcd have issues with shadow detail
well too much to list but lcd still has more issues to work with as where plasma is not as visable with all the overall issues/flaws as lcd is.
and to top things off its even cheaper in price then lcd!!!
so one must be really stup*d or meet the requirements bellow
house full of windows or such as 8ft window that gets alot of ambient lighting.
otherwise plasma still a better choice
