plasma every time and the bigger the better imo.

42" is too small unless you plan on sitting within 5 feet of the tv.

The only thing that puts me off plasma is the chance of screen burn, is that still a big issue with plasmas?

also i have 3 young children and the tv will be at low level, does this have an influence on plasma vs lcd?

we sit about 2mtrs away from the tv, we had a Toshiba 42xv635db but comet have agreed to exchange the unit due to a fault, we have had that tv for 10 months are are very comfortable with the size.

i sometime get a little screen burn when playing on the xbox but a couple of mins on a snowey channel sorts that.

recommend plasma every time
always plasma, LCD tele's are trying to get to plasma picture quality (led back-lighting) but still not there yet.
So would the TX-P42S21B be a good buy?

We watch a lot of digital TV that has a logo in the corner of the screen, can this be an issue with a plasma? also i read that widescreen movies with black bars at the top and bottom can cause screenburn also?

screen burn shouldnt be a problem on new plasmas although you may get image retention when you change channels for a few seconds when changing channels from one to another.
make sure you read the manual as mine stated I should be using it on low contrast / brightness for the first 50 hours of use.
