I was wondering what are the advantages/disadvantages of having an
LCD TV vs. a rear projection one

We sit about 13 ft from TV and one ofus sits kind of on the to the side kind of diagonal to the TV. Which type of screen would be a better view?

from everything i've read, and more importantly what i've seen in the stores, the LCD will definitely give you a better view.

in the stores i've got to have no viewing angle and be looking straight on at a dlp tv to get the best picture.

(NT) Plasma is better than either one.
