Weekend off - Swapped Plasma for LCD TV

Posted by Joshua

Hey guys, so I'm deciding I'm going to take the weekends off the spend time with friends and such instead of trying to remember dreams and all that sort of stuff.

Today I bring you something from my life that changed, my parents old rear projection TV broke and they wanted to trade my 42" Samsung Plasma for a Sony Bravia 32".  Below are pictures and different specs for each.  I'm unsure yet but I think it was worth the trade?

The plasma model was exactly the same as above except its power rating was 370w.  I think its a fair trade for upgrading to 1080p compared to 720p with 1080i.  Including the power savings!

Let me know what you guys think.
