The b450's have a lot of bang for the buck though. The picture once calibrated (even out of box) is great.
The thing is though, is that the set is '1024'x768...So it's like a lower Res version of 720p, but with Rectangular pixels correct?...9 Feet would probably be perfect for 480p Wii games, and you want to be at a good distance with the Wii remote. Yet if this were a 1080p set, i'd definitly sit alittle closer, but that's not the case....BUT the question is, would there be a difference resolution wise when sitting 9 feet away from a '1366'x768 Display? I'm guessing not, again when at 9 feet. But again, this set is basically for Wii, Bluray and DVD....and maybe
some PS3(which i barely play) What can i say, when motion controls done right they're amazing, nintendo's Exclusives and VC ect ect, i love Nintendo and the Wii....If the PS3 had motion controls for some of its games, Dead Space is a perfect example i'd be all over it. But for me, dual analog is now boring, archiac, dull, clunky and not fun anymore.
Anyways, I'm always comparing this to the Panasonic PZ85u Plasma from 08...
It seems the B450 has the upper hand in motion since it's 600hz, not to mention 'Samsung' color which apperantly is more accurate and overall more vibrant/colorful if i'm right....Black Levels are really the only concern and of course the green trailing. The Black levels to me at Wall Mart seemed good but not great, but again like i mentioned....it was in a horrible setting with bright lights, crappy feed, crappy PQ settings probably, definitly no HDMI and maybe no component ect ect. FutureShops setting is darker, so i'll definitly check it out there today or tomorrrow. Hopeffully Wii games looks more clear/sharper on it than my CRT which looks fantastic anywyas, but again i'd love to have progressivescan and Widescreen.
