Since you are on the pj forum you can guess what most around here would say. But as someone who owns both a pioneer elite plasma and a now dead older pj, I can tell you that for me the pj would win this debate 100 times out of 100.

The TV's that have been suggested (over 70" and under 3k) to use in place of a projector are large DLP TV,s so the poster would still be dealing with lamps either way. Under 3k and over 70", only thing out there close to his price range is DLP.

I know its hard to keep up, but Sharp is selling their energy efficient 70" 735 LED/LCD flat panel with 3D for $3.5K. It look excellent even in a well lit room. I like the tangy color, contrast and very pure whites.
