You might want to think about viewing angle, space, and how bright the room is. I bought a Philips 47" 1080p LCD at Costco early this year, and hung it on the wall of the family room. We have a kitchen with joined family room (a big 14' x 35' room) with a lot of south facing windows, so it's pretty bright in there. The LCD handles the bright light conditions well, has good viewing from anywhere in the room, and is big enough to be seen well from the far end of the kitchen. To me, it seems with a lot of projection DPLs you have to be sitting directly in front of them with your head as high as the center of the screen to get a nice bright picture. With you head higher or lower than the screen, it darkens considerably. Test this out at the TV store you visit. I think you'll find LCD is the way to go.
