I hesitated making this thread but I did use the search function and couldn't quite find what I was looking for.
After lurking on this forum for a year I decided to switch from a 40" Samsung mid-tier LCD TV that I purchased at Best Buy a couple of years ago to a plasma TV. Until I saw this site I just thought plasma TVs looked like, well looked bad compared to LCDs. I ended up getting the Samsung PN51D8000 and absolutely LOVE it! I am hooked and cannot believe how much better they look at home than in the stores. I used to think 3D was a gimmick and now my family and I watch 3D content all the time. I love playing the PS3 again because of the TV.
I just bought a new house and until then this 51'' has been in our bedroom much to my spouses' chagrin
Now to the point. I wanted to get another Samsung plasma, the exact same model but in the 59" version and keep the 51 in our bedroom. That idea went over like a turd in a punchbowl and now I have been given parameters for the new TV that is allowed in our bedroom.
The max size is 46". So other than the Panasonic 46" ST30 it looks like my choices are going to be LCD/LED TVs. I would like to stay with Samsung so I can use my 3D glasses and have similar looking TVs in my new house when it is redone. I have been looking at the UN46D700, 8000 and Sony KDL-46HX729 sets.
I love gaming and would like the TV to have 3D capabilities. I do not know enough about the 120Hz vs the 240Hz other than it should make 3D better. As far as getting a 46" TV am I heading down the right direction with what I am looking for and the limit of 46"?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know threads like these arent the best but I am lost. So, 46" TV max - Plasma or LCD/LED - Needs to be great for gaming - 3D is important but not vital as I have the other TV for that and around $1800 budget. What do I?
Thanks in advance to anyone who reads this verbose post.
