Replacing ST60 for more game capable display - need input

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Panasonic agreed today to let me return my ST60 due to the input lag. I am looking for a new TV now. I'm wondering what the best options are.

I'm still looking at Panasonic because I get a discount with them and the prices are great. I know the S60 is a great option, I don't really care for 3D or smart features, but I don't want to lose too much black levels/IQ (I am not a videophile though) but I am afraid of going down to 2 HDMI ports. I had 4 on my last TV and with 3 I am switching them out every know and again.

I'd appreciate some input from you guys. What are the best options out there? Should I look LED instead? I'm not too versed with the TV world and want to make a good choice.

VT or ZT becomes the obvious choice

You could get a good low cost Monoprice HDMI switcher unit to deal with extra HDMI inputs if you need them.

U guys are ignoring the fact tht he doesn't wanna sacrifice PQ. Switches won't help PQ if he gets a worse off tv

I want to stay in the same price range. VT and ZT are insanely expensive in comparison.

What quality loss or issues exist using HDMI switches?

Well unless you want to go to the mirror like display of the s60 you don't really have options

Is it really that bad? I have a semi bright room, I can control it by closing the two window shades but sometimes I like their to be light in it.

What do you guys think about "downgrading" to the ST50 or GT50?

I'm in the same boat as OP.

Not really a huge downgrade IMO and you get less game lag

S60, S64, F500, or F5500.

All of these are step downs/big step downs and don't the samsungs have bad input lag?

A step down in PQ, but a major step up in input lag, at least on the S60/S64. It all depends on what your standards are for PQ and whether or not you care about 3D. the S60/S64 also doesn't handle 24p properly, but I've read this is mostly avoided by having the BD player do the 24p conversion instead of the TV.
