I remember the exchange.
Over the years, plasma technology has improved dramatically. For instance, the FilterBright Technology reduces issues with ambient light, and the panels have technology built-in to reduce burn-in and image retention - although, image retention and burn-in are still possible. Though, on the topic of ambient light, it's probably not best to watch television with the sun setting behind you - but that situation wouldn't also have favorable results for an LCD either.
There are some differences in the picture quality, and plasma technology is a great technology - some argue that it creates a picture more like a CRT-television than the comparative LCD technology, and the refresh rate is significantly faster.
It's worth considering, and the price points are generally lower. So I hope that helps with your inquiry. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
I recently wrote you for advice about purchasing a new lcd tv to replace my early model Samsung LCD with regard to how feasible it is to repair them once the picture starts to fail. You gave me some very helpful advice comparing various ccfl and led configurations and recommended the LNxxB750 series. You also mentioned that I might be able to find a tv with a screen larger than 46 in. to fit in my plasma lift console. I was on the verge of purchasing an LN46B750 when I discovered your PN50B650 will just fit, is actually several hundred dollars less expensive and supposedly has better picture quality. I had never considered plasma tv's, because years ago I had read they had shorter lifespans, weren't as suitable for rooms with ambient light and had IR issues, which I understand have all been resolved. How repairable is this plasma tv compared to the various types of lcd tv's?
