Hi everyone, I am going to replace my old sony wega with a new tv, either the pro-111fd, UN46B800, or the UN46B9000 when it comes out. (Possibly even the Sony XBR8 led lcd?) As of now I am leaning very slightly towards the pioneer...
I will be using the TV in the following percentages:
84% Wii 480p gaming
8% Blu-ray movies
7% HD basketball and football games
1% Messing with all the advanced features in the tv lol
A couple more things to mention:
I will mostly be watching tv, movies or games at night
I have a deal where the pioneer is suprisingly slightly cheaper (by $300)
I do care somewhat about brightness and I kinda like a little oversaturation of color (the samsung and sony exceed the pioneer in this area)
I hear from cnet that the pro-111fd does not display SD signals very well, would that be fixed by eliminating video processing in game mode?
What exactly does game mode do in the pioneer, samsung, and sony vs standard mode besides no video processing?
Does the Samsung display SD game signals very well?
And one last thing, would it be a good idea to get an external upscaler, or is the upscaling on the tv panel just as good? Also would the upscaling be removed in gaming mode since the video processing is also removed?
So overall I am basically wondering which TV would be best for mainly the 480p wii
