I'm so confused now. I was almost decided that i'll go with 50 inch ST50, but then i read about some problems with it. FB, IR, buzz, banding, green/pink tints etc.
Who can recommend sth good for me?
I need TV (either plasma or LCD), about 50 inch, budget around 1200 EUR / 1600 USD (50"ST50 is about equivalent of 1100 EUR in Poland), it must be good for playing FPP PC games (low input lag) and watching 1080p movies (MKV+DTS) from portable HDD (Samsung S2 750 GB) - files > 8GB (need dual core CPU in tv?) and it must have optical out to my logitech z-5500 speakers. 3D performence is not important.
My room is bright, windows are perpendicular to the tv so good antyreflective sreen coating required. I'll be sitting 3.5 m away from tv.
I was thinking about ST50, Samsung plasma E6500 (cheaper and comes with 2 pairs of glasses, but no reviews on the net!), or LCD Samsung ES6800. The more i read the more stupid i get. Every TV has sth wrong with it. PQ wise panasonic is very good but i'll shoot myself if i get a tv set that has FB or problems with fast pc games
Is there a tv to fulfill my needs? How ST50 handle large 1080p MKV files?
