If you have to space for that, you might as well get a projector instead... But better quality, and flexible. And cheaper. And 3D. Oh, and did i mention the running costs on this baby will be HUGE?

Sorry, cold from me.

Either your definition of HUGE is different to mine, or you're response is based on different information. I have an older 61" plasma and have not noticed a HUGE hike in my electricity bills since installing it. Looking at the information provided for this set the power consumption stated as:

Consumption (IEC62087 dynamic broadcast-content video signal) / APS mode 234W

In order to provide some context a Samsung UE55C7000's stated consumption is:

Power Consumption (IEC 62087 Edition 2), 134W

A quick search didn't yield any IEC 62087 measurements for mainstream projectors, so I've had to rely on the manufacturers own measurements. The first example I came accross was the Infocus IN1501:

Power Consumption
170W (Normal)
225W (Maximum)

While all the measurements are not using the same standard, it is reasonable to assume manufacturers would choose a reading which reflected favourably on their products Therefore I would be suprised if there is a drastic error introduced by the differing measuring standards. However, any analysis ofcourse rests on the veracity of this assumption.

To summarise while the difference in power consumption seems marked, in real world terms the difference is negligible in the context of a £1000 TV purchase. For example the difference in consumption between the LG and the Samsung (reputedly one of the most efficient types of sets on the market) is equivelant to leaving a 100w lightbulb on In the case of the projector it would be a 60w lightbulb.

Unfortunately this appears to be another example of incorrect or out of date information being propogated repeatedly accross forums and threads. And often when challenged it results in a vitriolic argument to save face :(


Addressing some of the other points in my experience there are few instances where a projector is a viable alternative to a LCD/plasma. Far from being more flexible, ambient light requirements, throw distances, aesthetics (depending on how suitable a place you have to house the projector, not a fan of having them hanging of the ceiling in the lounge) lead me to believe a plasma is far more flexible in general use as a TV. Quality ofcourse is debateable and again tied to ambient conditions. If you don't have the throw distance or ability to lower ambient light levels the quality of most projected images can be abysmal.

Where I would agree to an extent is the point about 3D. While you may not be too interested in 3D content, at this size I would assume most would be avid movie buffs. £1000 is approaching the kind of outlay where it may be sensible (if you can afford it) to cover your bases for the future. As I doubt this is the kind of set you could relegate to the bedroom should you want a 3D set next year.
