I like LG as a company, even though i dont have any of their products, but they seem good.

27" plasma....hahahahhaha I am at the point where i'll be scrapping buying a new monitor and just sticking with my 3.5yr old crt on a brand new system just b/c its the cheapest way.

I cant find any for $299, maybe the sale is over. Cheapest i saw was $319, and the company is called famous brand. I have never heard of these people. I would rather spend the extra $30 and get a benQ, at least i know the name.

AMD ZEN, where di u find a plasma screen for cheaper than an LCD, usually they are at least double in price. I think the costco around here was having a sale on one 20" last week for like $400 or so, i was thinking abut it then so didnt pay attention but i may have to revisit.

Plasma pwns LCD ardy, how can u say plasma is crap?
