Looking for a new TV for no more than $1,200 - 3D/Smart TV functions aren't important at all, just looking for good PQ especially black levels. Hopefully bigger than 55".
I've been looking at these two:
I'm torn between a plasma now, some of the IR/Burn in threads have me a little nervous about pulling the trigger on the Panasonic.
It's main use will be movies, no cable or TV apart from blu-ray TV shows, and some PC gaming.
Also will be used for video editing, so having it as a full screen reference monitor, to color grade off also.
Any thoughts? Or any other recommendations that might fit my needs better?
In the LCD forum, there's a thread dedicated to finding an LCD. In the plasma forum, there's one a well. Since you're trying to decide between an LCD and a plasma I'd suggest you take a look at this thread here (I set the link to drop you on the last post):
Thought #AOY: So as a kid I tested the causality chain of something. When my cat was angry, she put her ears back. When that happened, I decided to push them forward, and then she purred. (!) Turns out that it's not that being angry causes the cat to push its ears back, but being angry and pushing their ears back are two parts of the same exact thing. She could not be angry with her ears forward.
