My parents are looking to buy a big screen TV soon but they are not very tech savey and I would like to point them in the right direction. The TV will be in a large finished basement. I think 55-60" would not be too big based on how far away people will be seated. I have been looking online and plasma's at that size are much more than they are looking to spend... $1000-2000 at most.
Does anyone have any advice/ideas about what the best alternative would be? Their priority are size and price before picture quality (assuming it is still pretty good) and space is not an issue.
New rear projection DLP HDTVs seem to have good picture quality and are much better looking than they used to be...only about 1 and 1/2" deep. I have also seen great prices on projectors but I am skeptical about picture quality, especially in a room with lots of windows that will be used during the day.
