Your not going to get any more glare then if you put a flatscreen CRT (tube) tv in the same spot.
We were all set to get a Sony KDS50A2000 when the realization that we have the TV on a lot (largely background noise and for the kids) meant buying a lot of bulbs during the lifetime of the set. It seemed like a 50" plasma, a Panasonic in particular, might be a better choice. But is the glare a signifigant problem with plasma sets? We have room lights on in the family room most of the time- would that be a problem with a plasma set?
BTW, I was in Best Buy today looking at sets and I must confess...I couldn't see any/much difference between most of the DLPs and plasmas I was looking at. Of course I was not looking at these sets for long periods of time, and I assume they were all being fed an HD signal,but most looked wonderful to me. Maybe I'm just easy to please ;o)
Thanks for any input.
