LG's are still too prohibitively expensive here, so a plasma or LCD will have to suffice for me.

Same as those 3-D ones.

I want a big bugger as I'm sick of having to watch my huge, old, tiny 29in screen. I almost need binoculars!

If memory serves me right plasma has a better picture quality but a shorter life cycle. Plasma is also more expensive.

We've had a fairly large plasma set for years and we love it! The picture quality is fantastic. (Panasonic)

We have Bang & Olufsen ones. The plasma one's excellent, and this's why:

Bang & Olufsen has developed an innovative plasma technology that ensures rich and natural colours throughout the lifespan of plasma screens which would otherwise slowly degrade. This revolutionary technology so completely awed Stuff Magazine that they made BeoVision 4, the first TV to utilize this technology, their gadget icon of the month.

BeoVision 4 is hailed as "more than a TV - it's a design feat, a living room work of art", and much lauded for the Automatic Colour Management technology that compensates for the effects of aging that normally impairs the picture quality of plasma screens over time.

As for the robotic arm, this is how it works:
Upon activation, a short robotic arm, anchored behind the upper part of the aluminium frame, tilts downward over the screen. At the end of the arm is a camera eye. A test picture is shown on the screen, and the camera films the screen. The colour temperature in light and dark pictures is analyzed and adjusted to ensure consistent colour reproduction, even after thousands of hours of use.

In the mean time, I've found a "Plasma vs. LCD" review that highlights a technological advancement in LCD display technology that seems to favor the recent LED-Backlit screens:

I'm sure the arguments and debates will keep coming, with every reviewer having a different opinion.
