If I were allowed only one plasma screen, the NEC 61MP1 is the one I'd take. With a 61-inch diagonal screen which makes for about 1,591 square inches of viewing pleasure—NEC has finally produced a plasma big enough for me. What can I say? I like big screens so I really like the size of the NEC's screen, but the weight (134.5 pounds) along with plasma's reputation for fragility is kind of scary for such a wide and perhaps easily tipped over unit. If God grants me my wish and a 61-inch plasma falls off a truck in front of me without breaking, I'll pay extra for a very careful installation crew to mount the thing permanently, up high on the strongest wall I've got. Just the thought of some kid falling against one resting on its skinny 17-inch wide tabletop stand makes me cringe.
