Thirty-three percent said a LCD HDTV has the best picture while 27 percent said a DLP rear projection set offers the best high-def images. Five percent said the HD picture is the same on all the sets.

The flat-screen war between Plasma and LCD is the scene of most battles. Most industry observers say Plasma looks better in a darker setting while LCD fares better in well lit areas. But even that contention is disputed by some. However, everyone seems to agree that HDTV — regardless of which set you own — looks better than what we all watched before.
