lol. CRT's look very good if you have the right one. I'd take a high quality CRT over an LCD ANY day, provided that I had a sturdier desk ( frown.gif )

You have obviously not used more than low quality CRT's... Your post made it seem like CRT's look bad... The good ones don't. Quit hating on them in every thread where you have the chance.

there definition is ok but the contrast and colours are just awful compared to an LED, I dont like lcd's myself they mess up the image :s

My U2711 is the best purchase (computer purchase, anyhow) that I've ever made, it's stunning in both res and viewing angles, and the colour depth is like no other monitor, I couldn't ever go back to a regular LCD now. You won't regret it.

Pretty much that. The TV is going to be a worse choice than the monitor

LED = LCD with a led backlight instead of the usual backlight. You have NEVER seen a high quality CRT OR LCD if you say that LED = good.
LED = awful compared to a high end CRT or LCD. Only LOW END CRT's have bad colour. High end CRT's are FAMOUS for their awesome colors. And LED... It's just a bother with high end LCD's. I'd rather have CCFL backlights


LED = LCD with a different backlight, all the same rules still apply.

no im talking about a true LED screen not an LED back lit screen, no other type of screen can compete with the 5 million to one contrast on an LED screen

Hi,

it all really depends on the source and the picture processing of the plasma.

I have a HP 2475W H-IPS monitor 24" @ 1920x1200 and a 8th Gen Pioneer Kuro 50" pretty much next to each other, Video content looks better on my Pioneer (but this does go through a DVDO video processor) but pictures i would say the HP H-IPS monitor which i find has wider colour gamut then the plasma.

Plasma has better blacks than the IPS. When i upgraded from my TN panel the first few things i noticed was

better colours
way better viewing angles
sharper picture
also noticed that the panel was really bright even with contract and brightness way down but i think all IPS panel are the same.

The resolution upgrade is way too much compared to the plasmas advantages. IMO

The U2711 is not a clear winner for gaming or multimedia playback, a high or even decent quality plasma will destroy almost any LCD for that (and also be far more forgiving on the system hardware as its far easier driving 1080p than it is 1440p).

But for static images and general desktop work then yeah the U2711 would in turn destroy a plasma (or any TV used as a monitor)

I wouldn't want to run a plasma as my only computer monitor unless the vast majority of my computer use was for gaming or watching movies. Plasmas aren't great for static images / text and any decently large TV/monitor will consume a ton of power and put off a decent chunk of heat relative to a PC monitor counterpart, and plasmas are on the upper end of that.

I would agree with these sentiments. I would imagine having a TV for a second monitor hookup wold be nice, but for actual computer use a monitor is going to suit someone better for the most part. However, there are some people who have TV' for a monitor. My friend had a 32" LCD and liked it and I know there is a gentleman on here with a disturbing picture from American Psycho has his Avatar who has a 46" TV for a monitor.

What the heck are you talking about. I've heard of OLED, maybe that's what you're referring to? And that's brand spanking new tech, too.

And I've never even heard of a native 5 mil to 1 contrast ratio...confused.gif

Yup. For PC, a high quality LCD is sufficient. Plasmas are more for home gaming/movie watching.

I am not sure how people use large low resolution TV's as their primary computer monitor. I would find the resolution unbearable for anything other than watching movies. Then again I am used to 2560x1600 on 30". Anyway I would say if you want high quality, go with IPS. If all you care about is size, then get a plasma.

Im currently running three IPS panels in eyefinity, I have used plasmas, hd tvs, and dells higher end tn panel monitors, and can say that I far prefer my Ips cinema displays to any of those.
