I'm sick of trying to get my head around the LCD versus plasma argument until I am bored to death with it and as far as I can see, some TVs are good in both formats.
Anyway, I don't do gaming but my daughter and missus will probably want to plug the wii into it at some point so no screen burn issues would be great.
What I do want is to have it linked to the PC somehow and bypass any need for a DVD player. I certainly don't intend to waste money on lots of discs when I can download them for free but I'm sure my daughter will need some !
As for price ? well, for a TV only I could not see me going much over the £500/750 area but for the lot, lets say around £1000. Can I spend more ? sure, but I ain't paying £5k for a telly !
Oh, 5 year guarantee an absolute necessity.
