I remember him asking me what was the best TV, which I anwser without a doubt LCD's.

He went ahead and bought a 70'' plasma tv because it was CHEAPER AND BIGGER.

The screen just tears and ghost all the time, 3 seconds on a white image and then a black image and you clearly see the white image for a while xD

Now he says Plasma sucks and LED is the %$#!.

LED's been out for a while and IMO, I never saw any difference from 10 000:1 to 10 000 000 :1 on my monitor, Just an other gimmick.

I just quit, I won't try to tell him LED won't change it's life (Even though it's great quality combined with a 120-240hz refresh rate).

I got to admit 10 000 000 : 1 ratio is the biggest gimmick ever, for someone who don't know what it is, WOAH THAT'S A LOT.

Yeah, bandwith is capped out, so for U3011 users like me, I have to use dual DVI as I don't have HDMI on my geforce. Its kinda cool, resolution so high you need dual DVI to feed it biggrin.gif

Super Contrast ratio claims and special lighting "engines" and are just marketing BS that sells products to gullible people who don't know better, your friend being one of them.

If I am not mistaken, HDMI was really pushed by multiple similar industries (specifically DVD manufacturers) because it is almost impossible to intercept the signal. Making an HDMI capture device is almost impossible because the data that travels down it is encypted. Whereas an RCA capture device could be used to illegally make copies of DVD's, HDMI is considerably more difficult.

Now that was about a year ago. Hackers have since cracked the digital encryption and HDMI capture devices are now available.

Wow. That was off topic. Let me redeem myself: Dell uses Display Port on their monitors because it is indeed cheaper. They have to pay a certain fee for every HDMI port they install... So we get hit twice by the industry, they take away the ability to capture the video signal, and then charge us for the implementation of said HDMI.

I'm not complaining, though. If we're dumb enough to buy it, we're dumb enough to live with its limitations.

Version 1.4
HDMI 1.4 was released on May 28, 2009, and the first HDMI 1.4 products were available in the second half of 2009.[55][111] HDMI 1.4 increases the maximum resolution to 4K × 2K, i.e. 3840 × 2160p at 24 Hz/25 Hz/30 Hz or 4096 × 2160p at 24 Hz (which is a resolution used with digital theaters);
