When the first high-definition television (HDTV) sets hit the market
in 1998, movie buffs, sports fans and tech aficionados got pretty
excited, and for good reason. Ads for the sets hinted at a television
paradise with superior resolution and digital surround sound. With
HDTV, you could also play movies in their original widescreen format
without the letterbox "black bars" that some people find annoying.

But for a lot of people, HDTV hasn't delivered a ready-made source for
transcendent experiences in front of the tube. Instead, people have
gone shopping for a TV and found themselves surrounded by confusing
abbreviations and too many choices. Some have even hooked up their new
HDTV sets only to discover that the picture doesn't look good.

Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages.  There is no best
type of TV. It depends what you are looking for.  There are many sites
that compare the types of HDTVs - just google "plasma LCD DLP compare
review" and you will get a good list of places to look.  I recently
bought a DLP because it is an excellent picture with true blacks,
biggest screen for the money, and no chance of picture burn in.  The
main drawback to DLP is that you have to replace the bulb every 3-5

Agreed with research_help-ga, they all have relative advantages and
disadvantages.  CNET has a nice breakdown of the differences.

Your best bet is to simply look at the tv reviews on cnet or some
other forum and pick out the best tv that meets your budget and size
requirements.  I recently purchased this Sony SXRD
And it's fantastic.
