The Pros:Affordable price for a large screen TV. All the pros of plasma - better blacks than LCD, cheaper than LCD for the same size, great colour and contrast, fast refresh. PC input.
The Cons:Not full high definition - 720p only. All the cons of plasma - higher energy consumption, image retention (burn-in), higher glare, dimmer appearing than LCD in a well lit room.
