Default Which 42\" monitor is best with PTHD?

Hey all, I'm going to purchase a 42" flat screen monitor (LCD? Plasma?) to put on the wall to use with my PT rig. The monitor will be about 11' away from my sitting position. Does any of you have any great suggestions on which monitors really look good for this purpose? Thanks in advance for any help that you can offer.

Johnny

11' is too far.

Make sure you research the latency of any monitor you are thinking of buying. Most plasmas have a delay in them. There was a long thread about this in the surround forum.

Forget the monitor and go buy a DLP projector with a screen.
