May I genuinely ask why only Plasma/LCD tech is being considered?

I looked on in envy as I went from site to site on the net researching HDTVs (about a good 6 months ago mind you) and noticed that all the sites with a good price and CHOICE were mostly American.

(May I assume this is largely a discussion between US citizens at the moment?)

My point is:

American stores (online AND Bricks 'n mortar) seemed to have at least one other choice - DLP.

Great Picture.
Good with Action.
Good (sometimes excellent) Black levels.
Non reflective display.
Huge screensize.

Have things changed THAT much in the marketplace that you would only consider Plasma & LCD??
God I hate signatures.
