But Plasma has some other problems that turns me off going that route again. The two most annoying is image retention and the blurring effect caused by the different decay time of the phosphors making individual colours, specially the green phosphor which also causes the green fringing effect on Plasmas.
This years Kuros are so close to absolute, that they can not be measured accurately.
Again, the Kuros do not suffer from IR to the degree that it would become cumbersome.
So you are highly sensitive to motion blur, and you're considering an LCD? If the blur bothers you, then the SOE will be even more of a pain to your eyes.
You are also sensitive to phosphor trails? You are one unlucky guy, as it seems that everything bothers you.
I have yet to see an LCD, whether it be CCFL, or LED, have a uniform screen. I have also yet to see one with good off axis viewing angles. Those who claim that they are exaggerrated, are those view their TV's in it's Dynamic setting, which is hardly considered "Picture Quality"
Note: I am only referring to those sets available to us at this time on a wide scale. I am not referring to the XBR8, which I have yet to see with my own two eyes. Unlike many, I reserve judgement til I have had the opportunity to observe, again, with my own two eyes, and possibly, a colorimeter.
