Hey guys, I'm currently looking to replace my 50 inch sony dlp 1080i tv. My current tv has served me well, only needed to replace the bulb once or twice over its life which set me back around 120 each time and plan to continue to use the tv, perhaps in a bedroom of the house. I'm very excited for the PS4 to be released and have been eager to buy a new tv for quite some time. I'm ready to take the plunge but am having an incredibly hard time choosing what tv to buy. I've read great things on the Panasonic TC-PST60 series for the picture to price ratio but it has some serious serious input lag for gaming . I'm by no means a pro gamer but I do enjoy FPS games and fighting games and would more than likely notice the input lag which would drive me nuts. My current gaming room has the couch around 10-12 feet from the wall or stand the tv will be located. I would like to keep the price around $1200 but understand that this is an investment that will last me for years so I think it's reasonable to exceed my current planned budget for something I will truly enjoy for years to come. I will use the tv for gaming , watching NFL and netflix/cable tv. The gaming room has had both of its windows completely darkened so brightness and reflection wont be an issue. Should I wait a couple months until the PS4 is closer for release or just pull the trigger and enjoy watching my NFL and current games now on a beautiful new screen. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I also understand most tv's come with 3D but that's one option I could careless if I have. I know it's inevitable that most all new tubes come with it , I just am not a fan of the whole 3D thing. Thanks for taking the time to read my post and thanks in advance for the help ladies and gentleman.
