I have a SONY 51" HD, Widescreen and it is great...I also hear good thing about the LGP TV's mine is a projection and its been good to me.. My wife also said it was too big but my next is going to be a 60" LOL. If I got a flat screen I would want to hang it on my celing in my bedroom so I could be very comfortable!!

Go with LCD or projection; plasma's fade in brightness over time.

LCD's will last as long as an LED, 20,000 to 100,000 hours; but the backlight will need to be replaced every five years with normal use. Projectors and projection TV's use an LCD array, but you see the projected image of it; I think the bulbs in those last for up to 3 years. Plasmas are practically thousands of little fluorescent light bulbs; the reason they fade and die early.

I'm waiting on buying a flat screen until OLED TVs come out -- 3 or so years from now.
