I currently have a Panasonic 53" widescreen 480p/1080i rear projection tv that is in my basement. We use it for tv (AT&T U-VERSE with HD), DVD (and soon to be Blueray too) and A LOT of XBOX 360 gaming, maybe eventually a PS3 too. I have been wanting to update this tv for a few years now, since I got this tv back in 2003, but with IR/burn-in issues and motion blur issues, I haven't done so yet.
I think I want a plasma because of the gaming and the refresh rates but after recent posts confirming the IR problems have returned, I just don't know what to do!
What are you all gaming on? If I replace my Panny, the new tv has to be at least 50", probably 55" -60". My seating is about 6-8ft from the tv and because the room is in the basement, daylight isn't an issue.
Of course when I ask retailers about this, all I get is..."oh no, image retention and burn-in is a thing of the past, no problem now, as long as you get a name brand TV...from all the posts I have been reading here with the new models 2011-2012s, the problem has come back fiercer then ever!
