I think you might have picked me up wrong or maybe i don't know what i am talking about? but are there not 3 kinds of TV,S out there? PLASMA, LCD, LED, i said plasma was better than LCD, but is this not a LED TV. And of course i love the features of this set but it seems to me everybody seems to be saying there is a lot wrong with this set. i just think if you spend money like this you should get what you pay for.
Ah, I see. Except for recently design OLED's, of which *one model* is shipping this year and is absurdly priced, every "LED" TV you find is actually an LCD TV with LED lighting behind it. It's also known as an "LED-LCD" or less commonly an "LCD-LED". Previously when you saw LCD by itself, it meant an LCD TV with fluorescent lighting behind it.
THAT said, consider all LED-LCD TVs to have the same issues as LCD TV's. There is an exception to this in that LED-LCD's can be edge-lit, which is why TV's suddenly got thinner some years ago. Further, when you hear "LCD" in this forum, you should almost always assume they mean "LED-LCD", because those are the currently pushed technology, and the LM7600 is an LED-LCD.
Sigh. This is far far far too big a conversation to educate you in this thread.
Take a look at this page perhaps: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LED-backlit_LCD_display
All this aside, Tampa's question is 100% valid and was my question as well. IF you are happy with plasma, we're asking why you would want to tempt fate and move to LCD? I'll go further to warn that if you've been fully happy with plasma, that the chances are very good that you will be disappointed by LCD (because of off-angle viewing, lesser blacks, not quite as smooth). LCD however will be brighter, but again, the bottom line is that you're happy with plasma
, so given that, don't give yourself a headache: shift gears to searching for the right plasma.
