I'd go with maybe an LCD if you can find one that big. If not, plasma will do. The bigger you want, the more likely it'll be plasma. I hear that plasma and LCD are better than any projection TV..so yeah. A lot of sales are always going on for big TVs, but they're usually projection type, so if you don't mind that, then there you go. People have told me that plasma and LCD have better quality, though, when compared to projection TVs.

Cnet has reviews of 237 50-59" TV's.
Start with their recommendations.
Then go to BestBuy or Circuit City and kick the tires on the sets that interest you.
Then crank up Google and look for best prices on the sets that you've seen that look good.
When you're going to spend a couple of thousand dollars there's no substitute for doing your homework.

Actually different brands DO make a difference. Some brands are reliable. And some are garbage. For instance, Phillips TVs are garbage. I've had 2 phillip's TVs and both have died within 2 years. Toshiba on the other hand is reliable... so is Sony (at least in my experience).
You should definately research each brand and specific TV models. Don't just go buy the cheapest 1080i/HDMI one, because as lightbulb42 said above, "when you're going to spend a couple of thousand dollars, there's no substitute for doing your homework". It will definately pay off in the end...
