I chose plasma, because that's what video pros choose to edit and show their work. Not just any plasmas, only Panasonic units are considered the best HDTV picture around. Sony is no longer even in the two. The second place honors go to Samsung LDCs (with LED backlight these days.) Bottom line, you need to look a lot at the picture quality and choose carefully. What you like is most important. But keep in mind, they really jazz up the picture quality in many stores so that the picture quality is so distorted that you really can't tell what it will look like in your house. You have to hope they did about the same to them all.

Is that all right with you? John Russell: I'll settle for that. I'm not on the slab. Jessie: Well, what do you figure yours is going to read? John Russell: "Shot Dead," probably. Jessie: Don't people take to you, Mr. Russell? John Russell: It only takes one who doesn't. Dialog from the movie "Hombre"
