For pure picture alone, get the Panasonic plasma. The others don't even come close.

The TV I bought (the Sharp Aquos) is 100hz. That, along with it's dejudder feature, give it a pretty smooth image overall. I am actually amazed by how smooth it is. To give an idea of it's smoothness to you, I played the opening scenes of Immortals on Blu Ray, which has a fair few panning shots with alot of judder on on my old LG HDTV. Not a single bit of judder at all on my Sharp. Avengers is smooth as butter and looks completely different than on my old LG HDTV aswell. I played Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter on it last night and it was almost like being there watching them act it out in front of me. The image was that fine and smooth the embers at the end fight scene felt like I was watching the film in 3D they popped out that much. A much better TV than I thought it would be actually. It's not even placebo, taking into account I work in an electrical retail store (hence my 10% discount). It's just that good.

 

At the poster above me, the Plasma lost out. I decided against it as I use my TV for playing on my Xbox 360 and I also intend to hook my PC up to it aswell. Didn't want the worry of plasma burn in the back of my mind. It is a fantastic TV mind, I certainly do not disagree, just not for me in the end. Especially with getting a 60 inch LED TV as good as the Aquos for £900.

Burn in isn't as much of a worry after 100-200 hours of normal use, about a month.

Times have changed. You don't really have to worry about burn in unless you purposely try to have burn in set in the TV. Besides using more energy than LED-LCD and LDC TVs, plasma's really have an advantage in just about everything. LED-LCD and LCD TVs are catching up even though it might take a while. Seems like you're already enjoying your Sharp. Hope it does ya well.

Well that's me more educated on Plasmas. Still, knowing my luck, it would happen to me, lol. At least it's not something I have to think about at all when I hook my PC up (which I do tend to have on quite alot anyway).

 

Anyway, back to this awesome 60 inch LED TV. Yes, it's awesome. Did I tell you guys that yet? :D

That's why I said for picture alone. I understand there are reasons not to get a plasma, but they still give the best overall picture quality. The best LEDs still do not match them for color quality and black levels.

Edit: Also talking about soap opera look to a TV. That is from the TV having certain video processing effects on (built in or manually set), not from the refresh rate.

I guess I'm just weird. I've been in stores with a ton of tv's on display and just standing around the LED models just had the best picture, for me. I love the high synthetic refresh rates.

Regardless, that's a nice TV OP.

Don't dispute what they're capable of regarding colour, but it isn't that big a deal breaker to me. Like I said, I'm a gamer and not having to worry about burning in HUD's etc is more important to me, no matter how common or not it can be. Keeping the running costs low is pretty important aswell seems it's being used alot, which the Sharp has a good energy rating. Hell, I just love the extra 10 inches. :)

And the TV is still 100hz without the dejudder feature. I double checked that on the manufacturers site (I dare say the Panasonics 2000hz was synthetic, lol). I'll be quite honest it's more than enough for me considering I don't get any judder at all (even if that's mostly a built in function). Played Battlefield 3 on it last night and it was awesome, playing Resident Evil 6 on it scares the crap out of me I get that engrossed in it (thanks to the size).

I guess visual is like audio. What's best is subjective to the user (or users).

And thanks. It really is a pretty good TV that has more than met my expectations considering it's size, image quality, and what I paid for it.
