    Both models are made by Samsung and they are priced identically.
    Both are capable of 720p or 1080i.

    When I compare the pictures I can see that the plasma picture is better but the room begs for a 60+ inch television.

    Which one would you choose?

    P.S. Is 720p better than 1080i? I know that 1080 is a higher res but it's not progressive.

    Screen size is important for impact. I'd say the 61" if the room begs for a screen of that size or larger.

    No brainer on this one, go with the 61 inch. I think both even do 1080p which will be the next thing above 1080i, but again the larger screen I think is the way to go.

    Both of these don't do 1080P. He would need to get a 1080P model which just came out.

    That is the route I'd go. They have improved their DLP's big time with the upgrade to 1080P. Big contrast differences.
