    Im not far away from buying a new tv, the one im looking at is a 32 in lcd for about 350. I was telling my mate the other day and he says thay i should pay the extra and get a plasma one as they have a better picture from more or less all angles, whereas the lcd are a bit iffy in that respect??

    Does anyone here have any input on this, what should i go for lcd or plasma???

    there is a limit I think 40inches were there is a significant difference (allegedly - I don't own either, its just what I've heard). Above 40in go with plasma, and below go with LCD.

    In respect to smaller LCDs - 16in up to 25in - I've seen a few with mates and they have had no serious impairments that were noticable - it was just like watching a "normal" TV.

    To be honest i wouldnt notice much difference. However are you looking at a HD set? if so then you really need to up the money and go for one that supports true HD 1080p. You'll see the difference here bewteen Plasma and LCD. One thing i was told though is that Plamas need recharging every 6 years or so, where as LCDs should last longer. And you hav eto pay for the recharge!

    I'd recommend the 40inch Samsung LCD thats 1080p but its just shy of 1k last time i looked. Makes it outta my price range for now. (and for the Techies who like to keep up with technology, theres UHD on the way in around 5 years plus possibly true 3d tv in 10 years being produced by philips, though i'd say this would be more for cinemas and PUbs / shows etc rather than home).
