I've been using an ugly RP RCA 52" D52W20 for the last 6 years. I feel it's time to take the jump now that prices for LCD panels have stabilized.
I've been sitting at about 15' while viewing the 52" panel, so I'm planning on moving around furniture and sitting within 8' - 10' so that I can get used to watching a 46".
The panel will primarily be used for gaming. With the occasional movie being popped in.
PQ is important, I just don't know how to judge this when I'm looking at models online. Is there not a website that compares the PQ of all sets that get brought out onto the market? Something like dpreview for cameras.
I don't care for any of the superfluous features such as ethernet and USB connectivity. Everything I watch and play will be from my PS3 and at times streamed through my PC by the PS3.
I understand that Sony has the best MotionFlow and what not, but that is not what I want 120Hz for. In fact, I can't stand what it does to film. I'm more interested in getting dejuddered 24p playback and no blur during gaming. As well as experiencing BluRay in 3D.
Fast Response Time (6MS or lower?)
No Input Lag
120Hz (Do I want this? Is it necessary for true 24P playback?)
Here are the models I'm looking at, please advise.
- Sony Bravia 46" S-Series KDL46S504 - $799.99 @ 2001 A&V
- Samsung 46" 5- Series LN46B530 (Is there a lottery with this set? I've read something about S, A and C.) - $899.99 @ 2001 A&V
- Insignia 46" NS-L46Q120-10A - $799.99 @ FS
- LG 47" 47LF21 - $899.99 @ BB
or is the following bundle a better deal? (I already have a 5.1 home theatre, but I like the standing speakers)
- Sony Bravia 46" V-Series KDLSV5100 + Sony Bravia Home Theatre 5.1 DAVHDZ485 - $1299 @ 2001 A&V
