just because a set can do more colors doesn't mean the colors will better or more accurate.
sure the elite pioneers are nice but to me the colors look muted when compared directly to a good lcd. that's just how i see it, you can too if you just stand in front of the two side by side and keep an open mind.
look mostly at scenes where "light" especially natuarl light ie: sunlight. the effect is most noticeable in outdoor bright sunglight, cast shadows etc. look at how the two sets reproduce what you know. how light hits surfaces, it's intensity and vibrancy and see which one is the more convincing.
i've done this many times and always walk away with the impression that lcd is the better one for this kind of comparison.
deep blacks is where plasmas outperform lcd, especially with their high contrast ratios but that isn't enough for me to switch over because the blacks on sony lcds are more than adequate.
He needs at least a 50" TV at that viewing distance, and plasma has the best PQ for large screen sizes.
lcd's come in 52", 50", 57" sony,samsung,sharp. all in 1080p
However, as gaming will be the main use (why no HD??), the LCD is probably better.
not probably, most assuredly.
When will LCD proponents stop spreading false information about plasma? Burn-in is not a concern any longer
i guess that's why avs has the "MASTER BURN IN THREAD" as a stickyhttp://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=608677
Just read bosng's post. I don't think overall brightness is the issue - the most natural PQ is. And plasma still holds that crown in larger screen sizes. LCD's still have a "digital" look that is not entirely natural.
natural in terms of the way light is displayed. does sunlight look real (and bright).
not muted and overcast(tendency for plasma) in direct comparison to lcd.
plasma never had the crown imo.
don't know what you're referring to when you say digital but you can always turn sharpness down a notch if a sharp lcd is too much for you.
