So, despite my recent Thanksgiving gift of unempoyment, we are looking at a 42" flat screen TV. (luckily my significant owner is the breadwinner and I'm a starving artist loser. ) The TV's I have seen, the LCD's have the absolute best pictures, but seem to be on the high end price wise. Plasmas seem to look a bit better, but not as good in my opinion. I don't know much about DLP, but I am not really impressed--maybe the unit I looked at was meh. Looking to find out if any of the technoligies have life issues such as backlights eventually going out after time etc... or advantage and disadvantages to any... Gracias.
