So, I was planning on buying a Sony KDL-32W705, which seems to be a good set for someone like me who plays video games 50 percent of the time and the other 50 percent watching movies. Reasonably low input lag and good image quality, and so on and so forth.
A few minutes ago I stumbled across an ad for a used KDL-32W4000 from 2008. This was a great TV back in the day and it supposedly has virtually no input lag, but slightly worse black level and no support of 4:4:4 chroma. It's less than half the price of a new 32W705 though, so maybe it might be a bargain.
I'll be sitting in a dimly lit room, about two metres away from the TV. Movies and games, that's basically it. Probably won't use it as a monitor, just occasionally.
So, what do you guys think? Which TV would you choose?
5 yr old LCD is old shouldn't be half price of new equivalent but maybe one quarter price if that .
game consoles and PC often support YbCbCr 4:4:4: 0-255 color and full RGB 0-255 in addition to YbCbCr 16-235 or std RGB 16-235 if you cam swing it go for new or look at Panasonic 32 or maybe Toshiba 32 Toshiba usually game well
