I would stay from Panasonic. I had a 42" 1080p from them and it got burn in from less than 20 minutes of Super Mario Galaxy.


How did you get burn in from SMG?

Dont get an Plasma in an lit room, it has to be Dark. 

If it is lit then go for LCD 

and if you are fancy go LED 

I have an samsung 42" LED 3D tv and an 50" LG Plasma (tvs are cheap here in Aus, thanks japan :D )



Of Course That's Just My Opinion, I Could Be Wrong

Marios health meter in the top right. I have no idea why I got it but I will never purchase another Plasma again. LED is the way to go anyways.



For the people asking, my resarch says that plasmas have the best response times and refresh rates and are ideal for fast moving scenes like games and sports (they say the LCD's are much better than before but they still fall just short of the plasmas in my price range of $1500).

I've found a problem I am getting with reviews is that alot of people are comparing different classes of TV, for example saying a $3000 plasma is better than a $800 LCD/LED therfore plasmas are better or vice versa.

I need some more opinions of competing technology in the same price range.

 



 

I did a lot of research a few weeks ago, including going to Best Buy and looking at all of the TV's side by side.  I wound up getting a 42" LED and I think LED is about as good as a picture can get!!  Not at all what you were asking but if you can go LED 120hz-240hz (I only have 120hz but it looks fucking amazing), I say go with it!!

I was gonna post a pic of the TV but they all look the same until you see them in person.  Keep in mind that there are some pretty amazing features (like totally killing motion blur, picture in picture, USB support,  and enhancing the backlighting) that will truly impress you.

Plasma TV's beat LCD's in almost every way possible 7-8 years back but a lot has changed since then. Namely the fact that most manufacturers have gone for LCD as the main picture tech to advance and sell, for various reasons. LCD screens have about 87% marketshare in the HD market now and its slowly growing, making plasma all but obsolete within another 7-8 years (by which time you'll probably have a new TV anwyay).

I spend a lot of time watching Blu-ray and I play a lot of games on my TV as well as watch History channel, Discovery and Eurosport in HD and I never even considered as plasma screen, the list of reasons to choose one over an LCD display panel is getting very, very short indeed and, like I said, manufacturers will probably start fazing out the plasma alltogether within several years (6-8).

PS: As long as you stay clear of 3D tech, LCD's are very reasonably priced now compared to a couple of years back. My TV halved in price in a little over a year.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

I have a vizio at my house, and we have 4 at the resturaunt i work at and the owner also has one. They are a great tv for the price, great. But if you are going high quality I would not recomend them. They are a bang for your buck tv, and all the ones I have used/see are 4-5 years old now and still work great with no issues. But you get what you pay for. they are usually in the mid range to price. Although vizio is a new name I bleive the company has been around alot longer they just went through a rebranding/marketing 5-7 years back.

So I'm looking for a TV in a month or two and i've decided on plasma. However my research has come to a halt as I'm getting conflicting reports as to which is better. Considering there latest models, which do you guys think is better?

PS I don't really care about 3d, and obviously it's prime use is for gaming with secondary sports and then movies.


My parents just got a 55" Samsung at their house and it looks amazing. Its the best picture I've ever seen on a TV before as far as I can remember. I definitely recommend Samsung but Panasonic is also great. 

You really can't go wrong either way.
