I would get a TV. Plasmas are overrated. Projectors are alright once you really step it up and get an awesome one.

LCDs that do 1080p are a good choice! might have enough left over anyways.

not to mention what type of 50" you are getting... spend $1k+ on a plasma or $500 on a slip on. not a tough one to answer ;)

Does the plasma go 160mph+?
Can you ride a wheelie with the plasma?
Can you dragg knee on the plasma?
Can the plasma do a smoke show?

I have worked in the consumer electronics industry for about 5 years and I thought I could help clarify a few things, Plasmas typically have a life expectency far over 10 years. Personally I dont see myself keeping a tv for more then 5 years with the way technoogy always changes anyway. Check out Panasonics plasma life expectency, It is far greater then what people would ever imagine, I would say lcds work better if you would be getting a lot of natural sun light on the screen, most lcd sets use a matte screen which doesnt glare as much as the glass on most plasmas. Projectors usually work best in dark rooms, Bulbs usually go out between 3,000-5,000 hours and from what Ive seen on better models they usually sell for around 300 bucks. For an everyday tv I would suggest plasma or lcd over a projector. Also another difference is that Lcd sets usually have a much brighter picture as plasmas tend to have a more color accurate (natural picture). Anyway, I agree, buy both. Then you wont have a tough time choosing.
