Plasma's are twice the weight of an equal sized LCD, something to
consider if installing it yourself. Plasma's also generate a lot of
heat. Plasma's also reflect light so don't place it where the sun
might be shining through a window. We purchased a Sony 46 inch LCD
after looking at it at Best Buy, I bought it at B&H Photo in New York,
had it shipped in, local delivery service brought it to my door and
even helped me carry it in the living room, I saved over $500 by
purchasing it at B&H. I have no TVI and I do not detect any RFI from
it on my radios. Great picture. It is the Sony model KDL-46V3000
(Bravia). The change model numbers from time to time so that exact
model may not be available. I think you won't go wrong with any of
the Bravia models.
