Sure a LED will use less power, but it's not like a Plasma is going to cost so much in electricity use that it will break the bank.

As for design you might want to see how thin plasma's are today. Not like they're bulky like they used to be.

Heat output? It's not a oil heater it won't be making your room toasty.

As stated previously I do have a plasma that's maybe 3 years old that I gave to my kids...



Yes, it does get image retention. (I didn't say image burn) and yes, it does in fact make the room toasty. There's a noticeable difference in room temp when the plasma has been on for a while vs off. You can feel the heat radiating off the thing 2 ft in front of it.

I finally landed on LED. So that debate is over. Here is how I came to the conclusion. 

 

A weighted pro/con list

 

1: Neutral

2:Somewhat important 

3:Important

4: Very important

5:Vital 

 

The following were rated based on how important each feature was to me. Features not listed were either not important enough or were a tie. 

 

Price-3

Viewing angles-3.5

Color reproduction-4

Contrast, black levels-3.5

White levels-3.5

Risk of image retention-3

Heat-1.5

Power-1.5

3D-2

Brightness-3.5

Aesthetics-4

 

 

Whichever TV had the win in each category gets that value.

 

Samsung Plasma:9.5  VIZIO LED: 16.5

 

The VIZIO is the clear winner based on my criteria.

 

 

Now that that debate is over, I am stil a bit on the fence. 

 

I have it narrowed down to two and maybe three options.

 

The VIZIO E550i-B2 or the VIZIO M551d-A2R.  What are the real differences between these? I see that one is edge lit, and the other is full array, but why is the lower end one full array? I saw one of these in COSTCO, and the blacks seemed to be incredible. I would have to give it a serious look before I say either one was better though. 

 

The only other option right now is the VIZIO P-series, but lets keep the debate between the two listed for now.  

 

As a side note, I did a ton of research for sound bars and finally landed on THIS ONE. It has been getting huge praise from CNET as the best product of CES, and other high marks.

So, all of Vizio's models will eventually be full array this year. They're just starting with the E series. If you can wait longer the M series will be full array with more active zones than the E series.

So the M-series in stores right now are not the 2014 model? 

 

EDIT: They sure look like it based on THIS>

 

EDIT AGAIN: I see that they have similar designs, but different features

I saw HERE that the VIZIO M552i will retail at about $900 that is definitely doable. Just wish I knew a release date. 

If that is indeed the price and features that they claim, I think my search is pretty much over at this point. If the release date is crazy delayed, I may end up with the E550i, but my room isnt very close to being remodelled yet, so I have time.

Sounds like a good plan. thumb.gif I'd guess it shouldn't be longer than a few months.

my old plasma was hot, power drainer , it would heat up bed room , it was a 42 inch and input delay was bad, very bad, if i where to get a different tv now i would go that 4 k tv for 500 . or just a 50 inch led @ 120 INPUT screen, watch out all-most all are sublays. but the image did look great but input lag is a bigger turn off for me .

I didn't read the entire thread, but my question is why are you sticking to a 1080p tv? 1080 will be phased out/dead in a year or two, As newer Higher definition TVs start to take over the market. Myself I'm looking into 4K televisions, and up here in Canada the prices don't quite make sense yet, but for Americans, the pricing and distribution is in place.

Well, the short answer is that the tech just isnt really up to snuff yet. Low refresh rates at 4k res. The price range I could afford is low quality, and to get the decent ones, I would have to spend $500+ dollars more.
