Two sides of the coin make a forum productive and honest.
So please lets stop some major BS here - 1. Plasmas float blacks too 2. White on a plasma isn't white 3. LED's now do motion just as well or better 4. Colors are better and brighter on LED's and if Plasma can't win the color competition then why make an energy unfriendly Plasma? oh wait - they aren't Panny going outta the Plasma business.
1. I haven't seen this years models do any of this...
2. Yes they are according to video standards. D-Nice already lectured you on this before, LCD whites also fall short of the actual "lifelike" standard as well... they are simply super bright at the cost of the rest of the picture.
3. Wrong. There is less blurring but more digital-like, artificial motion to replace it. The more natural smoothness of picture still belongs to plasma.
4. Wrong. They might be equal to plasma but definitely not better (what is "better" in this case anyway? More accuracy? Also wrong...). I'll give you LED's can be brighter, but brighter doesn't equal better unless you're using it for 3D. Unless you actually live at Best Buy, I personally don't understand this obsession with images having to be brighter than a reasonable, comfortable viewable level in a typical household.
