If you've got that sort of budget, the answer's easy: Pioneer's 50in Kuro plasma - the PDP-LX508D. Full HD resolution and the best picture performance you can buy - whatever you're using it for. It's a stupendous set - list price £3700 but there are deals to be had.
Make sure you use decent HDMI cables between it and your set-top box/movie player/console for optimum HD performance.
Gonna go and do a little more testing on the LX5080D with stuff recorded from tv (Hatton v Mayweather fight
and football). On the TLC Broadcast website they have a LX5080D for £2999 and the LX508D for £3500, they also have the hd ready 508XD models. But whats the difference between the LX5080D & LX508D, because so far standard def dvds havent blown me away on the LX5080D which was demoed to me.
