Rptv's do offer bang for buck in Size vs cost. And even if they might be better with glare than a plasma, its still not good. At all. I have one, and when its that particular time of day, I will not be watching a movie. Go LCD. It could be a must for you.
I have read HDTV reviews until my head is about to burst. I've had two things affecting my choice: size limited by existing entertainment center and an ambient light issue caused by two stories of windows. I was leaning towards LCD versus plasma based on a brief review comment that LCD is usually best in ambient light situations. After convincing my better half that allowing the furniture to restrict our viewing pleasure was not a good idea I am now looking into RPTVs to take advantage of their size and price but I cannot find info on their ability to handle sunlight glare. I am looking for others' experience with an ambient light situation and there experiences. Can a RPTV handle sunlight glare. (please no responses on curtains / blinds etc I am treading there as well, some of you must know what I mean!) Thanks!
