I'm curious about this part in bold, I've never really checked, and in my theater mostly use the HTPC or a game console, but in my room I'm nearly certain naming the input PC has the same affect(it's...

normal: 120ms
game mode: 60ms
PC:45ms

I sure hope this isn't an issue with other Samsung plasmas... :(


I have an f8500, and at some point I'd like to get an xboxone too, but this would be a real deal breaker.

there's a lot of 'ifs' in this debate, but I agree with the above. if I didn't care about money, or size, I would take the oled over the plasma because I'm all about the deep blacks, and to this day...
