Well after my disappointment with my Plasma TV,
I decided to look for a LCD this time. I went to HHgreg, Bestbuy,walmart and looked at about 10 different models in the 42-47 range.

I decided on this.
Philips 47PFL5704D/F7 specs (http://www.retrevo.com/search?q=Philips+47PFL5704D%2FF7&rt=sp&modelid=23283157)

Wow I'm impressed with the PQ. Very good blacks for a Philips, Even Very good for a LCD, and the 2 ms response time beats my Sony 1080p 3 ms.
Also the 120 Hz makes such a huge difference, I may never buy another tv without this option.
The D* HD looked good before, Now its unreal.

I'm going to have to say the PQ on this TV beats my KDL52XBR5 sony.

Sound , well not the best. For having best in class 30 watts some of them must have gotten lost.

Buttom line Plasmas have very good PQ , but very unpredictable when it come to Image Rentention. Dark blacks are dark yes , but what good are they when you can see images ghosting in the blacks? LCD have come a long way and with much less to worry about it was a no brainer.

I'll post some pictures when I find my Usb cord for my Camera.

Panasonic is sending a Tech over to see why it seems to be retaining images that are only on the screen for a short period. If it can be fixed they are going to fix it, If they find its not my Fault they will refund the money.

Otherwise it going in my bar/game room where the use will be alot less.
