I would like to see a thread called "which plasma produces brightest full screen whites?".

Or which plasma has least aggressive ABL, so the picture would not fluctuate so much on high contrast (or brightness) settings.

Edit; oh forget to answer; Panasonic G20, V20 and VT25 has the most brightest full screen whites on 2010 plasmas. Peak brightness I don't know because thats not very important, although my PNC8000 shines like a star.

I asked this question over three years ago and here I ask again. What current Plasma Display will offer me the whitest whites and the best pop in picture today? Moving over from LCD to Plasma. Thanks!

The current Panasonic models have brighter whites than ever before for plasmas.

Until the Auto dimming kicks in that is. XP My X5 produced some very bright whites, especially in cool mode with the contrast belted
all the way up, when gaming....Sadly, 10 minutes later the entire image would dim causing that bright and super colorful image to be no more. The auto dimming was very agressive.....It was basically
a glorious 10 minute tease....Then i was left with a super dim picture and crappier colors. Maybe the Auto dimming isn't as agressive with the 2013 models.

lol I noticed the lcd subforum, their forum directory header was previewing someone's "whites too bright" thread, & meanwhile here we are.

I think they're plenty bright enough now, across all technologies. Just have to choose- would you rather whites be occasionally limited by an undefeatable abl, only when nearly full white screens appear, or all blacks be limited all the time. Without getting into motion handling, viewing angles, screen uniformity vs. bi/ir, efficiency, form factors, price etc.

Except that with the best LEDs one isn't concerned about ABL and doesn't have to worry about 'blacks limited all the time'. Because they're not. If viewing angles are a prime consideration for buyers, in that case they should stick with plasma.

Nothing has changed, plasma is still the best technology by far. It costs more but it's worth every penny. IMO.

Just say no to cable.

Actually it doesn't cost more. The more expensive displays these days seem to be the higher end LEDs.

Two great techs, but to say plasma is the 'best technology by far'....not so much. People see things differently. People have different needs. But hey, whatever floats your boat Joe. smile.gif

I guess i should have explained that "IMO" means in my opinion, my bad.

I just feel that overall, plasma gives me everything I want. Whether I'm in the kitchen, family room, hallway, dining room, I can get the same great picture from any angle. I don't have to worry about sunlight or lack of, the contrast ratios from quality plasmas kick ass.

But hey, whatever turns your crank, Ken. smile.gif

Just say no to cable.
