go on cnet.com and research. wanting an hdtv, non-rear projection, for arnd 2300 would probably point u towards a panasonic plasma, industrial model. although 1080p 's are a rarity and will prob. cost more. putting aside the general pros and cons of owing a plasma vs regular rear projection tv (design, weight, picture quality etc), these r the differences between a regular plasma vs an industrial model plasma.
pros- better picture quality, less expensive, looks better. pc input.
cons- no tv stand, speakers, minimal inputs, which can kinda be good also since u can customize for about $100 each new input. no tv tuner. thts ok for me too since i run it through a vcr or satellite box anyway.
i ve had a panasonic plasma 42 inch for more then 2 yrs now with zero problems (knock on wood). no burn ins whatsover. they have technology that prevents that. time till half-brightness is 60000 hrs or arnd 10 yrs. newer models r even more than that.
i didnt go for a rear projection cause of the weight, size and also cause if u change angles, the picture tends to darken. although most models claim to minimize the effect, its still there. with plasma's even if u'r almost sideways, no change in picture quality whatsoever.
