    My room at PH had an LCD, decent sized. And I had a low floor room with a crappy view, so if that room had it, I am sure all would! :)

    They didn't convert all rooms to LCD when they remodeled into PH?

    Not true. I had a 20" CRT TV that had a flat screen, also just got rid of a 55" DLP TV that had a flat screen. Both of which were at least 1 foot thick and 10 years old.

    You're thinking of LCD and Plasmas.

    Most of the TV's now that Vegas uses are Plasma. The rooms I have stayed at CET and MGM and V/P have all been plasma.

    Either LCD or plasma (or LED backlit LCD, OLED, so on and so forth), they are flat panel HDTV's. Some people refer to them simply as plasmas, flat screens, big screens, etc. A little ignorance toward the specific technology isn't the worst thing in the world (unless you're buying one), and most people probably wouldn't be able to name the technology just by looking at one. But I think most of us know we are talking about flat panel HDTV's.

    That being said, you can put me in the category of those who prefer HDTV's in the room... well at least I used to. Not only do I prefer the picture quality over SD sets, I also like the extra room you gain with a wall mounted flat panel set. The lower profile of the sets allows for easier flow and better appearance. Oh, and old tube sets just seem... old and dated.

    Now the reason I say "used to" was because the thought of having a nice HDTV in the room was somewhat romantic and cool, especially before I owned one. However, in reality I don't go to Vegas to watch a lot of TV. Not only that, it seems like half of the channels they offer, as well as the slow guides and interfaces are not even in HD, defeating the purpose of an HDTV. I've been to smaller boutique hotels that have DirecTV where all channels are in HD and the guides are snappy. But I know that must be hard to do when you have up to 4 thousand rooms to hook up rather than 50 or 100.

    Nonetheless, for some odd reason, I still prefer a room with low profile HDTV sets.
