Hello all; I am close to purchasing a new 60 inch TV and both the units mentioned above have perked my interest. 3D is not currently something I am interested in. I am wary of Plasma just because of the history of these units, and wonder if I am not letting a long term bias against Plasma interefere from making the best decision. I'd always thought Plasma just doesn't last as long as LCD (or LED in the case of the Sharp LED Quattron) and would appreciate your input into the things I should consider and if my understanding of Plasma is simply out of touch with reality! On paper, the specs of the LG unit are far superior to the Sharp unit, but I cant find a retailer who actually displays the LG Plasma model so it you have one would love to know what you compared it to and why you went that way. Any info is appreciated. Thanks!
