DLP or LCD projection has provision of replacing lamp, average expectancy of lamp life is 5000 to 10000 hrs (lamp cost is $300). These TV have bright colors but looses on black, which is hard to detect. They are bulky compare to LCD / Plasma but slimer compare to picture tube TV.

I have LCD projection Sony and do not feel any difference compare to LCD other than, it is impossible to be mounted on wall :(

The fact is tube-TVs last the longest when compared to LCDs and Plasmas. Also, many flat screen tube TVs are HD ready. So if you want your TV to last for, well, for a long, long time, you still would be better off with tube-TVs.

So, what is the selling point for you when it comes to LCD and/or Plasma?

When I did some research, I found that Sharp Aquos series LCD TVs are the only ones made in Japan. Rest are made in Korea, China etc.

With technology changing so fast, you may find that in 60,000 hrs or less (the life span of LCD/Plasma), you will be itching for another upgrade! :L

If you are planning to buy within 46 inch I would advice for LCD mainly 60,000 hrs comparing 20,000 hrs of plasma.
I purchased 40 inch LCD HD (contrast ratio 3000:1,Samsung) in Aug 2006 and last week helped my friend to purchase 32 inch LCD HD (contrast ratio 4000:1,Samsung).
If your budget permits buy only within Samsung or Sony bravia (contast ratio 3000:1 ot above) as they are the leader in the market.

btw in best buy Boxing week Samsung 46'' LCD sold at $2499 which I actually paid for my 40 inch one only 4 months back :D both LCD and plasme HD TVs are falling like anything so keep a good watch for a deal:cheers:

Since most people buying a flat panel TVs aren't looking to pass them onto their grandchildren, the 60,000 hr span is more than enough.

FYI, not all Aquos were made in Japan; a couple of models were made in China. Also, Samsung LCDs are widely viewed as very high quality, so I don't think 'Made in Korea' is that much of a concern.

On a more pragmatic note, I doubt most of us on this forum know how to get the best out of a flat panel by calibrating black,white levels etc. so any decent display does the job.

Ok friends,

We just came back and let me inform you that we finalized on SAMSUNG HPS 5053, a 50" PLASMA TV.

Got a deal of $ 2700 + Tax.

I opted for buying a PLASMA rather then going to west Indies to watch (we have got 6 tickets in the group, if any one is interested, let me know) and spend.

Additionally we are very happy to share this day with you all as we did our first biggest purchase since we landed. Overall we bought a RECLINER SOFA with RECLINER LOVE SEAT and a 6 pc Bed room set plus the PLASMA.

CD has played a major role in my journey so far in CANADA and would always be owing to share all the positives and negatives happening.

Enjoy!!!

VJ.

Congrats on the TV purchase. As an earlier poster said, Samsung TVs have great picture quality. I'm sure you'll have many many hours of happy watching.

Welcome to the world of couch potatoes! :p
