Took my wife to the stores tonight to look at the Panasonic plasmas and the Samsung LCDs that I've narrowed my search down to. As we sat watching a P50S1 in Sears, I noticed that on brighter scenes (lots of white on screen) I noticed flicker.
I'm not talking about judder, 24p mode or anything of the sort. I'm talking about refresh rate flicker. I've always been sensitive to it. I've worked IT/software for 10+ years, and when CRT monitors were prevalent, I could tell from across the room when someone had their monitor set on 60Hz refresh rate.
My question is, are there any plasma owners who share my flicker-sensitivity, who are comfortable with their plasma? e.g. you may notice the flicker once in a while but it doesn't bug you? I realize that's completely subjective, but I know that I was standing there staring at that screen *trying* to see anything wrong with it that I could find. And I only saw the flicker when the scene was bright (really, only when there was a lot of white on the screen). My wife really likes the look of plasma over LCD, and I am right in the middle, so if this is something that likely won't bug me then we'll go with the plasma.
Thanks for any feedback.
