I'm in the market for a new tv to finally replace my 27" Panasonic CRT and have searched through the forums and still don't know what to get other than the fact that I don't want a projector. I was going to get a 34" HD widescreen Panasonic at first but went to BB today to look at that and a Sony in the same size but they just seem to small. I then looked at CRT RP but the seem dim and I do a ton of gaming so I don't want to have to constantly worrk about burn-in. The other problem with a CRT RP is that I live in downtown Chicago and my apt. is a highrise that faces over the lake due east so the sun would be a killer anytime during the day because I have big windows running the entire length of the wall. So, now I'm looking at plasma, DLP, and LCD. A friend of mine has a Samsung DLP he bought last year but I can't stand watching stuff on it. The colors are excellent, but the definition seems poor. I see what I would describe as smearing and artifacting when we watch movies on it or do any gaming. Is this a problem with all DLP screens or just Samsung? Anyway, I'm looking for some advice as far as what to look for. I'm about 10 feet from the tv, have about $2500 to spend, and would prefer to be able to get it from Best Buy or Circuit City, or any other local B&M store. As I said earlier, I do heavy gaming so I need something where burn in isn't an issue. My girlfriend watches a fair amount of tv also so something that SD doesn't look horrible on will be a plus and of course, great PQ for DVD is a must so I'm looking for HD and widescreen. Any ideas?
