I'll take the one with size and Input lag, so long its not a whole second and a half lag
I guess i will go plasma
I will eventually get used to it anyways. I have a friend that goes to Halo MLG tourneys every year. it can't be that hard to get used to right? plus everyone on the PS3/Xbox is dealing with this.
I wish i could GO to BB or Fry's and just play My xbox one round on several Tvs lol.
But I am Conviced on Plasma. so thanks everyone
Hmm.. Please do make sure about the plasma..
Don't get anything below 1360(/1366x768! Or you may suffer crawling artifacts (more jagged edges) and fuzzy PC texts. I own a 1024x768 42 inch Plasma and it sux azz (but thank God it displays in the correct aspect ratio with HDMI-PC use [1080p and the true 720ps [1366x768 and 1280x720]]
I would first suggest researching about the ff:Auto Brightness Limiter
(brightness pops)Horizontal Line Bleed
(lines across the whole set depending on content)Flicker
(some people are sensitive to flicker like me. Specially on whiter back grounds)Eye strain
- Even if the flicker may not be noticeable, I read somewhere that Plasmas can give you more eyestrain due to how it works. The brain may not detect the flicker but the eyes actually get strained more.
Glare - get blinds or put it somewhere w/o much lighting.
..If you really like to game a lot especially with games with static HUDs, be prepared for Image Retentions and a possiblity of burn in. Be sure to turn on Anti Image Sticking options.
Image Retentions can last up to 2 months as far as I have read around even on current gen Plasmas.
Hopefully you get a Panny Plasma cuz those have more frequent Firmware Updates than the other brand.
The famous D series of Samsung (2011) have brightness pops (ABL).. Hopefully, if you do go that route, you won't be able to notice it.
Better yet, don't believe me and search around at avsforum regarding what I said.
Horizontal Line Bleedhttp://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1083853Then again, if you're in america... You can usually return it and get it exchanged with something else if you end up not liking it.
If you do go LCD though, you may notice "ghosting" specially on larger displays (it also varies from person to person, subjective). Or color shifts if you have friends around that are "picky" with viewing angles or if you don't use the TV head on.
All, in all, LCDs are more user friendly and barely have any consideration compared to plasma displays BUT not it's not for everybody.
I would lean more towards an LCD Panel for gaming and PC usage. ABL and HLB is a btch with PC use.
TL;DR? Here's for the ppl w/ ADHD:
+Great Size/Feature/Price Ratio
+Almost no ghosting, if any
+Best Viewing Angles
+usually better screen uniformity
-chance of noticing "Brightness Fluctuation (ABL)
-change of noticing "Line Bleed".
-Image Retention is inevitable (can be insignificant)
-chance of Burn In
-Reflection and Glare
-Very "lacking" in bright environments
+Very Bright and "vivid"
+Have no ABL or HLB
+less monthly bills (or every 2 months)
-generally more expensive (unless you SD a lot or have a Fry's near you)
-Not the best viewing angles
-higher chance of worse screen uniformity than plasma (uneven backlight [bleeding])If you truly value your time and money, please, please, PLEASE.. KNOW what you are getting into. If you're rich and have tons of free time.. spend away and get a likelihood of an interesting experience!Edited by tubers - 10/31/11 at 3:16pm
