will be as follows based on the curent state of todays HDTV technology....
1. Panasonic plasma:
Great PQ, better product reliablity and customer service;
2. Pioneer Plasma:
No longer in production but can still be found, and is still the King of PQ and black levels
3. Samsung Plasma:
Very close to the Panasonics, more prone to image retention poorer customer service and customer reliablity
4. Toshiba LCD:
Better blacks and viewing angles make this the most refereed manufacturer of LCD here at the forum
5. Samsung LCD/LED:
Although deeper blacks and excellent color reproduction they still suffer from limited viewing angles and loss of detail in dark areas
6. Sharp and Sony LCDs:
Just slightly behind the Samsungs in PQ
Anything else, Septre, Dynex, Insignia, Philips, JVC, LG are going to get virtually no positive feedback at this time..
Hope this helps/did you guys notice No Puke........
