I'm one of those fools people that wait forever for technology to improve. I was hoping you could buy 42" OLEDs by now. It seems plasmas give the best picture with regards to fast movement. I buy computer monitors looking at input lag, viewing angles and colors. Now, I don't plan on playing my games on this because I have a good computer monitor on my desk. However, once a OLED comes out (not holding my breath), it would be greatto re-purpose the plasma for gaming; hence the desire for a smaller one rather than the huge ones (plus heat and apartment size viewing distance).
I'll probably get a new AV receiver for it, and probably the same brand for ease of integration.
Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
