Okay - so here I am in need of a new tv. I have nothing against old CRT televisions but you can't find them anymore, so the choice is between plasma and lcd. These things I understand... Plasma is better for sport, movies, better viewing in a dark room, your economical option in a larger size. LCD is better for light rooms, much better in smaller sized screens, pretty much the only recommended option if you want to connect your computer to it (I don't, BTW), better for game playing. My quandary is this - yes - i want to watch movies and sports mainly. I'm not a gamer and I'm happy to do my computing on my computer. However, my apartment is full of light and I don't really have the space for a huge screen. I understand that plasma's no longer have much trouble with burn in, and I also understand that the issues of dead pixels and slower refresh rate are not nearly the issues they used to be for lcd's. I haven't had a great deal of time in front of either format. For a person like myself who doesn't really get all that excited about techy stuff, is there really a difference between the two? And which sounds like a better option for my needs?
