Thx, we may lessen the hurt by charging in the future haha
Everytime we get a `personal recommendation' or `what the best' or `if I were you' type of the questions, can we remind our readers of the saying `one man's meat is another's poison'. We need to construct a profile of your taste for pros, TV use and more importantly your intolerance for specific cons for you to make the right choice. or...you can take the plunge and find out later.
We have deliberately been vague about this because we don't want buying decisions to be based on just editor's pick...we're not comfortable with that at the moment. But Tony, becos I'm feeling generous today, and guilty of putting you through this rant...please answer the following questions.
SD vs HD use percentage?
Movies, football, games, HTPC use (in percentage) ?
Are you bothered with basic calibration ie discs?
Do you like a set and go TV? or you won't mind looking out for image retention on plasma TVs
Please rearrange the following PQ attributes, in descending importance
MPEG or deinterlacing artifacts
Now for bugs, tell us your possible pet hates related to these TVs, in descending order
Worry about image retention and veyr small risk of plasma screen burn
Green trail on plasma
Loss of detail in dark areas
What are your preferred connections?
Now which is most important to you?
All right...post here when you have the answers and I'll post what I think you should go for. You must put them in order...guess if you have to. Good luck.
