Help with decision

by Bondguy / May 3, 2009 8:36 PM PDT

Currently: Sony 27 tube TV - connected to stereo and DVR
Recent visit to family and seeing a 55+ DLP flat screen gave my wife the bug. So now the quest is on for a flat panel. Really want a 46-50 inch. Chairs are min 8 feet distance from TV. Can't decide between Plasma vs LCD. Budget is @ 1300. Looking at box store BB, irritating to see blurred edges on people during movement. The box store is pushing me toward Plasma but some of the better screens seem to be the LCD (brighter, sharper but with the edge blur issue to my eyes). As for content: wife mainly watches old movies, TCM, AMC, food tv, home channels, Disc, Hist and News. We have a fair collection of DVD. My interests are Action movies, ie James Bond, etc. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks
