Default Large Plasma

Howdy all! We are building a small media room. As set up the maximum picture size we could use would be 80 diagonal. We are thinking of a plasma or projector. My question is, does anyone have any experience with a large plasma (60-65) and what should I look for in a screen that large? Thanks in advance.

IMO, if you want to go 65 +, a projector would be the best way to go. Plasmas are excellent, but a 65'' plasma will cost you $$$$$. Around $4000 or so for a Pioneer 60'' to close to 5 bills for the Pioneer PDP-6010FD . You can get a Pannasonic 65'' 1080p plasma starting around $4500 shipped as well. And what a TV. I seen it in person and was blown away. . If 60''-65'' is large enough and $4000-$4500 is not too much to spend, Plasma all the way for over all picture quality. But you can get a nice 1080p projector or DLP TV for about half that with a bigger screen size.

The 65" Panasonic plasma is breathtaking to say the least...

I have a question...does a 1080p projector look "breathtaking"? does it even compare with how lcds or plasmas look?

In the numerous reviews I have read for the Pioneer Kuro line the reviewer often cites that it looks almost as breathtaking as a good projector....I believe the only drawback to a projector is having to watch in a very dark enviroment.....

A projector by nature will look different, breathtaking yes but still different, more like film in a movie theater. I believe plasma to be a bit brighter, better with blacks and to have more visible color depth. Don't get me wrong though, projection does look awesome and if you can control ambient light it is the closest to movie theater that you can get. It might be in the OP's interest to look at the JVC line of HD projectors, they are awesome.
