I am doing some comparisons playing Last of Us and Skyrim (PS3) on this vs. my old 26" 720p LCD. And the LCD wins out.
One thing my ln26b460 wins on is dark mode. I will NOT play with dark mode off. When in a dark room I want it to be dark, not grey and washed out. And no matter what I adjust the brightness and other things to I cannot get it to look acceptable. On the 32 LED dark walls appear just completely black. However on my 26 LCD on almost the exact same settings, I can see a bit of the texture in the wall. This is the effect I am going for, and I Just cannot replicate it on the LED.
I think the Size of the 26" is perferable too for my viewing distance (3 feet) because the textures and graphics just appear nicer on the 26". I bought this for the PS4 eventually since (hopefully) all games will be in 1080p. But as it is right now, I just don't know what to do. I wish they still made LCDs, or even 26-28" LEDs because I think 32" is just a bit much for what I'm aiming for.
UN29F4000 is 29" but only 720p
UN22F5000 I might really like, it's 1080p and small, but 22" might be a bit too small.
Any alternatives out there? Looking for LCD if possible, 24ish - 29ish inches, 1080p, good dark mode and "black level" options to tinker with.
