I do game and watch hockey.
the PQ of the E8000 is great, but if you love hockey choose wisely. Both the Samsung E's and Panny ST's have both been showing that they are prone to brightness fluctuations while watching hockey.
The GT's on the other hand have had NO reports of the fluctuating brightness issue that i have found, and the 3 i have checked in store back that up. Hockey looked good on the GT with no pops.
But i will say the IR on the GT looked to me to be worse than on my E8000. Not sure about the ST though.
Not sure about the availability in your area, but if you decide on the Sammy why not save a few bucks and get the 7000? Dont they have the same panel and antiglare filter as the 8000? Has anyone compared the PQ between the 2? I am willing to bet its the same. Unless you really want all the fancy camera/voice/motion stuff in the 8000 (which i never use BTW), it seems like a waste of money to me...unless of corse you think the expansion kit will be worth anything in the future.
