    The LED is a much better technology. I would consider getting a Samsung LED TV but I have a lot of ambient light in my living room so I don't think it will work (too much glare). Otherwise, this makes sense.

      How is it "better technology" if you can only watch it in a dark room? My folks just bought a new plasma TV to replace a giant, CRT TV they've had for years. It was the latest and greatest and coolest thing a decade ago, but it always had a problem with glare. It was set up in a great room that was designed to let in the most daylight possible and depending on where you sat in the room, glare was a big to really big issue. Now, with the plasma, you get a beautiful picture during the day, no matter where you are in the room.

        I've got the Sammy 61" LED RPtv in my living room, replaced a 5yr old 1st edition Sammy 61" DLP RPtv.

        The LED is waaay brighter than the old lamp version. Got 3 windows and a glass door and I have no problem with PQ even in bright sunlight.

        No lamp, no fan, no colorwheel, instant on; a big improvement.

          I never regret buying the biggest screen tv that will fit in the room in which it's being placed.

            Well, I ordered a Plasma in the Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ800U brand and model. I didn't want to sit and watch my tv where my tv told me to sit and watch. So, that's why I went with Plasma.

            Here's the review from cnet of the 50" in the same model.

              LEDs can be brightened/dimned independently. This improves contrast, color, and really improves blacks.

                Its better because it has a bright crisp picture and it doesnt have that weird movement on dark colors that plasma's and LCD have, and the only glare I get is when the sun is directly on it. The tube never burns out and it does not have the so many hours till the picture burns out. I will say the only draw back is that there is no picture in picture on mine and that blows. And for being a projection it only sticks out from the wall a foot and a half and thats because of extra crap that i have behind other wise i dont think it would stick out farther than a foot.which yes is more than a plasma or lcd but for 2 grand and 61" I can deal with it.

                  I've been doing some looking myself. I agree with Tiger on fast motion such as hockey, etc. There is a blur in LCD. Current generation LCD are now 120 MhZ vs. older (6 months or more ago) 60 Mhz. The faster mhz and refresh rate has, almost, eliminated the blur - but not quite.

                  Can't beat plasma picture - My concern is longevity. As others stated.

                      Sony recently announced a 240 Hz LCD TV. So the 240 Hz TV quadruples the refresh rate when compared to the 60 Hz LCD TV. I would think that 240 frames per second would resolve the "motion detail" or motion blur, problem. However, there may be some artifacting or Sony could be playing a numbers game. We will know shortly.

                        Well, glare will affect anything when there is "direct" sunlight so I can't say if LCD, plasma or projection is worse. I don't have enough experience to state anything definitive there. Do you have links to any reviews that compare plasma and projection TVs? I may have just missed them, but it was my understanding that projection TVs were outdated technology compared to LCD and plasma.

                          Cool. The 120 Mhz models should be in for a drastic price drop then. The 60 Mhz are being cleared out and cheap around here. 120's still pricey.

                          Is it true Sony has abandoned plasma?

                            can't beat Sony's LCD... worth the extra $$ for sure.
                            Not sure where you live but if you're at any sort of altitude, stay away from plasma.

                              On that one, I don't know.

                                I'm very happy with our new 40" LCD samsung. I shopped around but decided on the series 6, best value for the features included inmo.
