I recently made 2 purchases; an LCD and a Plasma. The Plasma is a 50inch LG 50ps30 for $850 (2009 model, same screen as the ps60 and ps80, with less features). The LCD is a Sony Bravia 46inch KDR 46 EX501 for $799 (2010 model; replacing I believe the 5100 series). I have 2 months to decide, thanks to Costco's generous return policy, and the Sony comes with a 4 year warranty as opposed to LG's 3 year. I have briefly compared the 2 and they both look good. Settings are both set to a basic setting where both look similar. The LCD naturally does not look as good from the side, however, the winner will remain a TV for the bedroom so angle does not matter. Viewing distance is about 11ft. I have had the Plasma for a month, and it replaces a 720p Samsung 4264 (circa 2007) that was excellent. I must say that both are an improvement. The plasma has had some IR problems, however they wash away quickly. Sports veiwing are not a big deal in the bedroom as I do most of that in the Family room. So what do you think????? I will post this on both the LCD and Plasma sites. Thanks for all HELP!!
