lol Super OLED will hopefully be the answer to all of these annoying and bogus problems. Samsung
claimed they have virtually no motion blur....Which still doesn't sound like it's CRT perfect, otherwise they would of said so. yeesh.
Still, SUPER OLED will put an end to LCD, LED and plasma, At least when sets come in varied sizes and actually become
affordable unlike the 55" samsung Super OLED TV that's supposed to hit for $8000 at the end of the year. Even then, why do i get the feeling
that the input lag will be higher than the norm?
I miss the 80's, I'd give anything to go back for so many reasons outside of gaming, but that's also another giant enormous reason!
The cartoons were just brilliant(Hell TV in general was actually worth watching), the horror movies, the fashion, the 80's synth pop/music in general, the out of this world commercials
beaming with imagination, color and creativity ect ect I could go on and on. XP i don't understand why these XBOX babies continuesly gush over everything
HD. It's fantastic and everything, but after the initial 'omg shock' you get used to it and it just becomes natural. I mean, the golden age of gaming was just too bloody amazing in comparison
to this massive pile of XBOX/PLaysation crap that's currently reaking up the industry with the piles and piles of unoriginal shooters being advertized on TV. Thank god for the Wii, 3DS and DS, otherwise i would of quit modern gaming all together
and instead focus on the retro, specificly the NES, SNES, Atari 2600, GameBoy and maybe the Genesis.
But anyways! Since the Sony CRT does 720p natively and IF the input lag can somehow be turned off in the service menu(even if it's 1 frame, that's
still great) than that seems like the ultimate choice for you. And i've got to say, i'm so glad
i stuck with my Sony Wega 32" CRT SDTV throughout most of this generation with the wii. So many people out there got the complete wrong
impression with motion controls since all of their HDTV's were riddled with different degrees of input lag. Motion controls when done
right are absolutely ground breaking(Metroid Prime 3, Elebits, RE4: Wii Edition ect ect) and they've breathed new life into a stagnent industry
relying on big hollywoodized games with shiny pretty graphics and more polygons(Cough* PS3 and XBOX 360)
I've owned both of those and i got rid of them, never have i been so miserable with gaming, especially with the XBOX. :P
Console bashing aside. XP With the Sony CRT.....You'll get 'perfect' CRT motion and black levels, 1 or 0ms of input lag and it can properly display
720p and 480p. I've heard that there is input lag when feeding the TV a 480'i' signal, which goes for your NES,SNES and certain Wii games.
But like you mentioned, maybe it's possible to fix in the service menu. Had this set been 50" i'd be all for it....Scratch that, it would
weigh more than a dinosaur and be as bulky as Punky Brewster's house.lol
Oh and somebody said they were 'happy' with the input lag performance of the Panasonic 1080p E5(ALPHA IPS Panel) 32/37" LED....But what does that mean?
'happy' doesn't sound completely satisfyed. More like, eh it's good enough for me. And this user most likely used HDMI, so there's a chance
component is lower. All of this extremely annoying. I've already figured out my situation with with the entire plasma ordeal, which i'll
be ordering in less than a week...'Refurbished' that is, it's nearly impossible to find a seller willing to ship to canada.
Part of me wishes the wii U wasn't coming out until next year, i'm a bit behind with my Wii actually. Still need to play Galaxy 2, Skyward Sword
Donkey Kong Country returns ect ect. But as you know, getting a nintendo console on launch is tradition!
