Preamble: i live in Canada, so my choices are limited.
I'm looking to purchase a TV this week. My choices are between the two. I'll be posting this in both the LCD and Plasma forums, to get a better idea of what both sides have to say.
used in a dark room (re: no sunlight), wall mounted. Mainly used for sports, PS3 and BD watching.
would you go with this Samsung 60" Deal:
or with this TV
I'm aware that both of these sets are NOT dual core processors. I don't believe i'm going to need the multitasking capability. I'm also aware that the Viera is the ST model, not the GT - so it doesn't have THX video certification. I'm mainly going for size as I wanted to get a 70" Sharp, but the TV looks OOOOOGLY and dated, so the wife vetoed that.
The Samsung panel looks sleek but it's not the high end model that's for sure. The Plasma is definitely better in terms of blacks, sports and fast moving images.
The Samsung comes with a HTIB and a wifi camera. That's the only part that really interests me about it. I mean the TV isn't bad, but what I guess i'm asking is:
Does anyone own/have one of these sets? I'm looking for the pros/cons for each.
Which one would you guys buy?
and IF I do get the Viera, would you guys recommend getting the 60" GT version over a 65" ST? I kinda like the 5" more and I don't think i'd mind losing the THX video cert and dual core processing. What would be more worth it?
Thanks in advance.
