Hello !!

Could you guys help me? I don´t have those amazing stores to test TVs here =(

I went to buy a 51D8000 -> $2520, but I do not care for SMART, Web Browser or even 3D.
So they suggested me a 51D490 -> $1250.

The D490 is 720p, but my major use will be PS3 gaming.

Thinking in image quality and resolution, what should I do?

Thank you.

I had my ps3 connected to my 720p DLP ever since the PS3 was released. I thought that is was pretty good. I did just get a 65GT30 and it looks pretty great, it was $1999 at BB. Both look pretty good, but I don't know if I would spend an extra $1270 just for 1080p used strictly for PS3 usage

Thank you for the reply.

Unfortunately where I live these are the best prices I can get in the stores.

So the quality won´t be that higher to spent twice?

Just for games?? No .
Unless you're watching bluray getting a bigger set or have lots of spare cash not worth it IMO.

Where do you live?

You can't order something online?

You can't get the Samsung 7000 or a Panasonic 50ST30 or anything else?

Usually when you're playing a game you're sitting closer to the TV than the average person watching a movie. The difference between 1080p and 720p is going to be pretty obvious on a 51" screen from 8' away.

The anti-aliasing on the PS3 isn't really the best. I'm not someone who goes out of their way to get HD stuff -- I really don't care much about watching a Blu-Ray vs. a DVD. But there's a big difference between 1080p and 720p on PS3 games. The games are designed for 1080p, and a lot of them have small text that looks much worse on 720p.

I don't think the difference should be a big deal, but maybe they just do a bad job of downscaling.

A big thanks, I´m going to buy the 720p.

These are the online prices, in the store the 51D8000 was $3000+

Well, I think the distance is something like 6 feet.
