Hello.

Which of these tv-sets would you buy for Console and PC gaming? Other suggestions in the simular price range are welcome, 42" max.

Edit: Been reading abit about the Panasonic, and it seems to have more input lag than the last years ST50 modell, so the ST60 will probably not be my first choice.

Look for a Panasonic S64. It doesn't have the bells and whistles like the ST60, but it's does have the anti reflective coating. It has great input lag numbers. This model is sold at the big box discount stores like Costco. It is essentially an S60 with AR filter.

If you're willing to spend a little more to step up to the higher level panny plasmas, the VT60 and ZT60 have been measuring quite well when it comes to input lag. And the picture is essentially reference quality perfect....it's the last plasma panel panasonic will ever make, and they went out like champs.
