Can anyone think of a good reason why I shouldn't buy this?
I'll only back up what most others have said: don't like the silver,
and it's only 37". Really, we sit around 3.5m from our 42" and I still
think we should have gone for the 47". Of course, I mostly watch
movies rather than TV shows, and so I am looking for that "big screen"
feel. If you mostly watch the news, a smaller screen will be fine.
Then again, I was in a "Sony Centre" yesterday and they had a 60"
Plasma. It really was offensively huge and imposing - at that sort of
size, I think you'd be better of considering a projector and screen.
As for LCD -v- Plasma, some people feel plasma is better because it's
"warmer", I am of the opinion that "warmer" is a euphemism for
"blurred but brighter". As long as you take the time to set up an LCD,
IMO, it'll look better, clearer, and just "nicer" than Plasma. As
Simian said though, it won't look right out-of-the-box, because a lot
of factors (room ambient lighting, viewing angle) make a difference.
Without wanting to upset Ferger, yes, a Plasma showing a blockbuster
action movie might look better than an incorrectly set up LCD, but
compare static content and you'll see that LCD is crisper.
