I'm torn between lcd and plasma but leaning more towards LCD. Both have good and bad sides, I guess.
1. Budget
$1500-2000
2. Seating distance
About 8'.
3. Size/placement limitations
Was hoping to get a 55 or 60" at the very least.
4. Uses and sources
Blu ray movies, HD internet streams with potential for next gen console gaming. 3d isn't too important. Apps not too important as I will purchase a sony blu ray player seperately.
5. Room lighting
Its a small apartment but I can control the lighting with my dark curtains.
I was looking at the LG LM7600 or one of the panasonic ST/GT50 models. I am afraid of getting a plasma due to burn in on those panasonics. I am also not a fan of how white looks on plasmas I've seen. Everything else on the plasmas seem like a great value. Anyway, thanks for any help. This is a huge decision and even though I have done as much research as I can, I can't decide. I'm hoping to make my purchase in the next couple of weeks.
Thanks!

For your use, I see no burn in issues. I feel that plasma gives you more for your money. First tv makes it sound like you won't be upgrading every 3-5 years.. I cant help with brand or model.. just plasma vs LCD. Also it doesn't sound like you will be burning a tv out very fast either...

So for these reasons, make a wise choice and make sure you love what you buy.

I'm not a fan of Plasma, so I'm looking for a 50" LCD no wider than 45" that has the least amount of input lag for gaming in the $1200 or less range. ... Is there one available?

Would my old Samsung LN-40A550 work better for gaming than most LED LCDs of today?
post #3813 of 5138
LG 55LM7600 is good. You may also consider UN55ES6500 also another good set.

Looking for an LCD. MAX clearance in height is 8.75inches. All I need is an HDMI input. Its a tight spot but would like something there. Any suggestions?
post #3815 of 5138
Hi all, was wondering what is a good, affordable LCD HDTV for college students.

Thinking about a 32 inch for no more than 280$ for the 6 of us would be good.
I think the only brands in this price range are Westinghouse, Insignia, Vizio, Phillips, Toshiba, which one is probably the best brand?

Or perhaps can you guys link me to good ones in my price range, basically don't need anything too fancy just for cable TV and at least 1 HDMI port
post #3816 of 5138
Hi, i am trying to find an LCD 32-40 inch that can read mkv file from usb, have an ethernet port and have 720p resolution.

I ll appreciate if someone can suggest a model.

Thanks

Hey all. I need some advice.....

Purchased my first HDTV a couple weeks ago (Samsung Plasma PN43E450). It was great except for the buzzing. I couldn't live with it, so back it went. Sales guy told me it was probably a defect and gave me another unit. Brought it home and had the exact same problem, and hence my sencond trip to the store. I have read most plasmas emit a faint buzz, and I believe I am particularly sensitive/anal about this frequency, so plasmas are basically out of the question. The TV is also in a bright room, and I definitely found the plasma a little too dark.

I picked up an Insignia NS-42E470A13 from BestBuy the other day, and other than the price I have been less than impressed (I guess that is what I get). I still haven't had a chance to calibrate the thing properly, so it may be OK once I do. However, I am wondering if I should fork out the dough for a well known brand. I am considering the Samsung UN40EH6000. Definitely a jump in price, but I would bite the bullet if it will greatly improve my experience. Any opinions?

Any other suggestions for a LED/LCD tv would be much appreciated. Here is what I am looking for:

Budget: less than $1000
Ideal size: 40"-42" (can't go bigger than 43")
Used for: xbox 360 gaming, streaming video, DVD, and over-the-air antenna tv

Another quick question: I think I want a 120HZ refresh rate for gaming; however, I have read that all the Motion Enhancement stuff should be turned Off when gaming to reduce lag. Does this defeat the purpose of having a 120Hz tv? From what I understand it does NOT, but I have gotten mixed messages from the internet (surprise, surprise!). Can someone clear this up for me?

Thanks!!!
post #3818 of 5138
Improve yes.greatly improve I doubt.see if you can find some calibrating settings for the insignia on the net to improve it .

Would like to know this as well. I'm looking for a 65" TV to use mostly for gaming and have read conflicting opinions on whether 120Hz vs. 240Hz vs. whatever is the best. Or is it just set-by-set differences associated with the motion processing causing all the mixed reviews?

1. Budget seems to be my biggest issue. I'm looking at a range of $400-$450.
2. Seating distance: the room is a typical bedroom, this isn't that big of a concern.
3. No real size limitations or anything, but I'm looking for a screen that's either 40" or 42", and 1080p.
4. Major inputs are a PS3 and a cable box. Not much else. Also hoping to one day add in a sound system probably.
5. Large windows that flood in light in the morning. The room can get pretty bright.

I've basically limited things down to a few models if you guys are willing to give opinions/thoughts on them and which one you would buy given the budget. I've thought of plasma before but this is my parents' money and they're so hardpressed on not getting plasma (due to unchangeable plasma myths ingrained in them) that I can't convince them. Oh well.

Sharp LC-42SV50U
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Sharp+-+42%26%2334%3B+Class+-+LCD+-+1080p+-+60Hz+-+HDTV/5061483.p?skuId=5061483&id=1218604357650#tab=specifications

The $400 price tag is enticing and the cheapest of the bunch, with surprisingly 3 HDMI inputs and 1 USB. I have a Sharp AQUOS at home from years ago that I love, but this isn't part of the AQUOS line so I'm not sure how it stacks up to the others. Is it worth $50 to jump to the other ones on this list? 15,000 dynamic CR. I don't know if this even matters really, but I have nothing to go with right now besides raw specs.

LG CS560
http://www.amazon.com/LG-42CS560-42-Inch-1080p-60Hz/dp/B0072B91LE/ref=pd_cp_e_0

$430 on Amazon right now. Many of the input/outputs have been stripped away I've been told on this model/2012 lineup. The dynamic contrast ratio seems to be a lot more than the others on this list, but again, I don't know how much of a difference that makes.

Panasonic TC-L42U5
http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-VIERA-TC-L42U5-42-Inch-1080p/dp/B00752RA9K

$450. 3 HDMI. Dynamic CR: 20,000. I have a nice older VIERA at home that I'm pleased with, but I'm not sure how this one stacks up.

Sony BX450
http://www.amazon.com/Sony-BRAVIA-KDL40BX450-40-Inch-1080p/dp/B006U1VGBA/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1349826011&sr=1-1&keywords=40+inch+sony+bx450

$430. 2 HDMI. 40" screen compared to the others, so it's not the best budget-wise, but I'm hoping to get your guys' thoughts on the picture quality in relation to the others.

If you guys could throw in your choice out of those or some other TV, that'd be great. Any help would be much appreciated!!!
post #3821 of 5138
Okay I've been looking for a new TV and haven't had much luck elsewhere on these boards, so I guess I'll post it here and hope for some good responses.

I've been looking to replace my 2-year-old 42" Vizio E420VL, and am looking at 46" or 47" models, preferably in the $500 - 750, or the $750 - 1000 price range. I'm looking for a good brand, and I need a good number of inputs, and there is something that I care about that the Vizio does a terrible job with: Input lag. The input lag is horrible, but I've kind of limited down to two different models that meet my needs:

Samsung UN46ES6100: Best Buy is selling it for $999, 3 HDMI inputs, and I've had several Samsung sets (all 32" LCDs) that I am generally happy with, that have almost no input lag at all, great for gaming. Though I've heard that they break rather frequently (like my Vizio). I once had a Samsung 32" LCD TV that was stored for over a year, and when I plugged it in, it didn't come on at all and I saw smoke. But Samsung does seem to be the most popular brand so I'm wondering if I should go with it.

Panasonic TCL47E50: Typically sells for $899, with 4 HDMI inputs. I've always thought of Panasonic to be one of the best brands out there, but these days Panny seems tired, and I have heard very little (on this board and elsewhere) about this model. It seems to have good reviews on Panasonic's website, and on Best Buy, but I have been told that it is a "bottom of the barrel" LED model (not sure what that means).

Right now, my top choices are those two, but there may be others as well. I'm definitely shying away from Vizio. I've heard LG and Sharp are pretty good too, but again, input lag is my main issue here, as I am an avid gamer and also am excited for the new Nintendo Wii U that's coming out, so I want a good TV for that. Of the two models I've listed, which do you think is better in terms of both picture quality and Input Lag? And if there's any others that I should consider, help would be appreciated.
post #3822 of 5138
UN46ES7500F
UN46ES6580F
UN46ES6100F
UN46ES6600F

Can someone tell me the difference between these sets? I've looked on Samsung.com, and other sites and I can't get a detailed listing of what each of these have and don't have.
post #3823 of 5138
Gaming HDTV (preferably also SD). Bigger than 37". No budget (cheap is nice though).

Low input lag is my primary concern. All other considerations are secondary. I would like low input lag for regular SD inputs (component/composite) as well as HDMI. Low lag for multiple resolutions would be great.

As long as the rest of the features are ok to good, I don't care. Preferably around a 40" to 44" set.

Also, if there is a better forum or place I should go to find these answers I would appreciate it. My budget is not unlimited, but I am fed up with input lag.

I don't care if it is LCD, LED, brand name, no name, plasma, this tech or that tech. I just want low input lag for HD input and SD input without spending a fortune.
post #3824 of 5138
Hey guys been searching my butt off trying to find a good LED/LCD for under 2k but all the midlevel models all seem to be reviewed as lackluster or just average. I would like to try out a plasma but concerned about the lighting being too much, it is on the bottom floor or a split foyer but there are two windows positioned directly behind the couch and the artificial lighting seems to be pretty bright. Here's my requirements.

~ Under 2k
~ 55" or larger
~ about a 10 foot viewing distance

Hey guys,

Maybe nobody has an answer to this, but I'm looking for a vanilla 47" LED-LCD 1080p without internet apps and without 3D. What I do want is a picture that can be adjusted to very good quality using the standard controls and test discs. My current set is a 37" Westinghouse LTV-37W2 LCD which I bought some years back based on a thread here -- it's been great and remains so, picture calibrates well. Spent several hours running around the net today and seems like vanilla isn't offered anymore or is bottom end quality. If I've no choice but to go with a 3D set (I don't care about 3D), then I'd go passive. I watch STD-DEF cable TV, DVD, HDDVD, and Blu-Ray.

From reading, the LG 47LM7600 seems well regarded for a mid price unit, but I'm hoping a similar or better picture quality can be had without 3D and internet functionality. (Looked into a couple Vizio 3D offerings with respectable picture performance, but reliability appears problematic. I guess local zone dimming is OK as long as it doesn't create any problems, motion processing needs to be defeatable. I'd say the Amazon 47LM7600 defines the peak of my price range, lower is better. I'm continuing to poke around, but if anyone has any ideas, please let me know smile.gif.

Thanks -- Trevor

My recent experience, looking for a set for a friend and for myself is that all the higher quality sets will have internet apps and or 3d. I think the idea is that the TV manufacturers think people who want the highest quality set, will pay more (for the extra stuff they may not care about), just to get the higher quality set. You can't get a high quality set in a "stripped down version."
post #3827 of 5138
I have the opportunity to pick up one of these displays. Sharp LC-60LE640U for $700 or the Sharp LC-40LE835U for $600 maybe $550. My primary uses are Xbox gaming, movie watching and live sports in the bedroom. Im just on the fence on wether i should go for the screen size or the more robust feature set.

They both meet the requirements that i find most important which are low input lag and wifi.


Any commentary would be welcomed.

Thanks,

I am about to remodel my kitchen and I am looking for a tv to mount on the wall. Here is my criteria:

1. Budget- $600 though preferably $500 or less

2. Seating distance: About 7 feet away

3. Size/Placement Limitations: I am looking at 32 inch and 37 inch models. I want a tv that is as thin as possible as it will be in a high traffic area and I don't want anybody bumping into it.

4. Uses/Sources: The only input will be my fios cable box. This is a kitchen tv so it will mainly be used for ordinary tv watching: news, sitcoms, sports. We will not be watching movies or using it for gaming.

5. Room Lighting: The kitchen has a number of windows but is not particularly bright.

Overall I want to find the thinnest tv possible with a good picture that fits within my budget. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

The Samsung very thin edge lit LED model UN32ES6500 sells for under $700, maybe with a sale/discount price might be a good choice.
You save a lot of money however if you can go with a model that isn't ultra-thin, that adds to the price quite a bit.

budget set for a man cave, i posted a thread in the general fp tech but just saw this thread. looking at the insignia 42" 1080p 120hz led for 400 or the sony 40" bx450 60hz unit for the same price(discount through family members work). this will be used for tv, bd/dvd, and gaming ps3/xbox. thanks for any input.

Hey guys,

I'm in the market for a new TV, and I've found some possible sets. I'm really not looking to spend more than $1400-$1500. My main use will be gaming, and some light TV and Movie watching.

1) Sharp LC60E69U: http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/sharp-sharp-60-1080p-120hz-lcd-hdtv-lc60e69u-lc60e69u/10218246.aspx?path=03b3e38c8623198c6a8b42835266e814en02

2) Toshiba 55L6200U: http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/toshiba-toshiba-55-1080p-120hz-3d-led-smart-tv-55l6200u-55l6200u/10200402.aspx?path=b31ba0c2447f5ab3a0e1e6a62ed3125aen02

I'm also not adversed to Plasma, but I've never had one before. If you guys have any other recommendations for great sets at a reasonable price I would appreciate if you let me know,

Thanks.

I actually have some experience with the Insignia. Is this the one you're referring to?

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Insignia%26%23153%3B+-+42%26%2334%3B+Class+/+LED+/+1080p+/+120Hz+/+HDTV/4549856.p?id=1218605863640&skuId=4549856&st=insignia%2042&cp=1&lp=1

My mom has it and I actually just borrowed it last weekend. Blu-Rays and games look awesome. Broadcast HD TV leaves a bit to be desired, but that's just the nature of the beast.

If there's any one glaring problem I have with the TV is that it takes some time to turn on, and it also takes a few seconds to change resolutions (say, if you were changing from a 1080i channel to a 720p channel on television). That can be annoying. The picture seemed great to me though, in what experience I've had with looking at TVs lately.

Regarding the Sony KDL40BX450 - I'd love to hear any advice on this TV as well. I'd be using it primarily for games through my 360, Wii, and PC (through HDMI), as well as Blu-Ray movies and Netflix. Am I really losing a lot by not going with an LED?

Also, maybe this isn't the place to ask this, but does anyone have experience with open box TVs at Best Buy? I lucked out on an amazing deal there for a Blu-Ray player/receiver for under $50, so I was wondering if I might have similar success with TVs. Do I run the risk of buying a TV that has already lost half of its life, or do people pretty much buy a TV, decide they don't want it for whatever reason, and return it?
post #3834 of 5138
Sorry for the double post, but I was thinking on jumping on this Sharp 42" tonight. Everything seems okay except I keep seeing that it is labeled with an 8.5ms response time. Am I going to get a lot of ghosting from that?

The frame interpolation causes lag. It should be turned off for gaming. IMO, there is no need for 240 Hz.. 120 Hz is desireable over 60 Hz for the purpose of eliminating cadence judder (as well as the ability to do frame interpolation "smoothing)." But 240Hz doesnt get you much over and beyond what 120Hz gets you, unless maybe it has benefits for 3D processing....but I hate 3D and dont recommend you waste your money on it.

Normally cheaper sets which dont have the fancy video pocessing chipsets and boards will have less lag and a better gaming experience. Even 60 Hz. I recommend 120 Hz for film and video cadence issues (and I am a big fan of frame interpolation)...but even at that it isnt necessary.


The 42" Insignia, I believe uses a nice LG S-IPS panel. Should be a decent set with good image and video quality.

I would stay away from Westinghouse.

Philips just doesnt have their heart in it, with regards to the US market (different story for Europe), IMO.

I would get a Vizio. Insignia is Best Buy house brand and would be OK.

There are several models of 32" Vizios at Walmart. The Vizio E321VL should be all you need, The Vizio E322AR is good too. Stretch for the 37" Vizio E371VL if you can. Youll appreciate the extra screen size. 37" gets into psychological "Big Screen" territory as far as perception for most people goes.

Try the Vizio E500AR at Walmart. Quality MVA panel and 50" for $598.

There is also the Vizio E552VLE with a quality LG S-IPS 55" panel for $898.

$430. 2 HDMI. 40" screen compared to the others, so it's not the best budget-wise, but I'm hoping to get your guys' thoughts on the picture quality in relation to the others.
If you guys could throw in your choice out of those or some other TV, that'd be great. Any help would be much appreciated!!!


I like the Sony and the Panasonic of those listed. I think your parents especially would appreciate the extra screen real estate of the 42" sets over some of the less noticeable niceties of the Sony 40"er.

I would seriously consider buying locally so that you can easily take something back if their is a problem....like a dead pixel, a stuck pixel, clouding, banding, and a myriad of other problems that pop up on HDTVs. Ill recommend the Vizio E421VO from Walmart to the list. It uses a very nice LG S-IPS panel and has good video processing with MediaTek chip solutions. On a side note, the sound is above average for HDTVs, perhaps important to your parents. It lists at $430. You have 90 days to return....if not satisfied or a problem crops up. Vizio is reputable with their warranties and customer service as well.

I think the Panny you listed above probably uses and LG panel as well. Panasonic LCD's have generally had a reputation for low input lag and fast response as well.

Low input lag is my primary concern. All other considerations are secondary. I would like low input lag for regular SD inputs (component/composite) as well as HDMI. Low lag for multiple resolutions would be great.
As long as the rest of the features are ok to good, I don't care. Preferably around a 40" to 44" set.
Also, if there is a better forum or place I should go to find these answers I would appreciate it. My budget is not unlimited, but I am fed up with input lag.
I don't care if it is LCD, LED, brand name, no name, plasma, this tech or that tech. I just want low input lag for HD input and SD input without spending a fortune.

Try the Input Lag Wars thread(s).
