Well gentleman, I may be in a position to finally upgrade the old 27" CRT to a flat panel in our great room. I read through this
thread that jakewash started last year, but would like a little more input from my family here.
I'm thinking the biggest plasma I can afford, but my biggest question is whether to go 1080p or 720p. I can get a Panasonic 46" 1080p for the same money as a Panasonic 50" 720p. We will be sitting ~10 to 12 feet away.
The present sources are std def satelite and std def DVD. The first upgrade will be to Blu-Ray, with no plans to upgrade the dish anytime soon. We rarely watch sports - mostly movies, concerts, and premium stations. (Nat Geo, TLC, DIY, History, etc..)
My price ceiling is $2000 (plus taxes) at Future Shop Canada
. (I have a gift card for a portion of it)
