Recommended TV models for Sports?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Guys,

Can I have your help to identify a shortlist of TVs to check out please? My requirements in order of priority are:

1. Must produce the best possible quality on SD sports streams from PC (note I could upgrade to 720 streams if this is a deal breaker)
2. Must be 50 inches +
3. Great HD and SD OTA channels viewing
4 Great Xbox 360 viewing.
5. VGA input (used because my dedicated music PC has no HDMI output)


So far I tried a GT50 Plasma which wasn't great with the SD feeds in 1 or SD OTA channels (3), an LG 47LS4600 (120Hz) which lagged badly watching sports (1), and a VT30 Plasma which had a great picture but lacked a VGA input (5)

At this point I could go back to the VT30, but I'm wondering if there are any other TVs that meet the requirements but also
1. Have VGA input
2. Do not have VGA input but could compete with the VT30 Plasma for my requirements.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

Thank you.

The Sharp LC-60LE640U has a VGA input, an excellent refresh rate for sports, and above-average picture quality. Not to mention, it comes at a reasonable price, especially if you track down a good deal; I'd recommend this set.

Thanks Tech fan. i checked out the Amazon reviews and there seems to be some complaints about motion blur. What was your experience with this: http://www.amazon.com/Sharp-Aquos-LC60LE640U-60-Inch-LED-LCD/product-reviews/B0076LY1C4/ref=sr_1_1_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

I prefer Samsung. I have 2 different models 1 that is 52 inch and is great for sports. I also have a 47 inch smart tv and it is beautiful, although it is in the living room and have not watch much sports
on it but football season is coming fast.

The VT50 would serve your needs best. I'm surprised you didn't try that after that GT50.

Also these models can serve your needs best:
Samsung PN64E8000 plasma, Sharp Elite PRO-60X5FD LCD, Samsung UNES8000 LCD.

Thanks haritere plenty of options there. Ranick - couldn't justify the extra cost for the VT50 - my understanding is the SD processing isn't any better than GT50 its just the black levels are better.

This might be a choose one situation to some degree, but if you don't want to splurge on an Elite (you didn't specify budget) or try the VT because you were unsatisfied with the GT (they both are dual core anyway), then whatever your set of choice + the highest end video processor?
