Hey, I'm looking to buy an HDTV for under $1,200 CAD. This will be my first, and I want it to be at minimum 42". I want a plasma. You seem to pay a premium for LCDs, and I'm constantly told they're only worth it in rooms with a lot of windows, gaming or if you need low-power. I like the look and especially the price of plasmas a lot better. I'd like 1080p as well. I went to Walmart for a look and saw a 50" 1080p Plasma for $1,099 CAD. Not bad at all. I saw this on their site for $999 but it's only 720p. So, all in all, can anyone link me to any 42"+ (and that's my absolute minimum, I'd prefer bigger) plasma 1080p television they'd recommend? When should I buy? Black Friday? Oh, and why do some 52" LCDs cost less than other 40" TVs at stores? Does contrast ratio and that stuff matter THAT much? They're both 1080p.
