Hi everyone,

We are trying to kit out our new office with a decent meeting room to sit with clients and look through websites/presentations etc.

It is too small for a projector so we were going to go for a 37" LCD or plasma screen.

We have around 1100 to spend and was hoping to get some advice on which one would be more suitable.

Plasma or LCD? and if you have any recommendations i'd appreciate it.

LCD is the way to go for monitor type displays. They aren't reflective like plasma screens, so they're not affected by backlight. They're also a lot cleaner IMHO.

Plasmas have been able to attain the 1080p "full high-definition" HDTV resolution as of late 2006; however they were beaten to this by LCDs. It took a 50" Plasma to achieve 1080p, while LCDs were able to accomplish it with 37".

Unlike LCD televisions, plasma panels aren't available in sizes smaller than 37 inches. Most plasma sets sold have 42-inch or 50-inch screens.

Couple of things to think about!

Something else to think about, we use a plasma screen at exhibitions and by the end of the day it can get very warm - you can feel the heat coming off the front of the screen.

If your meeting room is too small this may be a consideration.
