From what i have seen at JB HI-FI (Aussie version of BestBuy) the VT60 has the best picture i have seen on any TV it's something else. Only the 4K panels would rival it.
My ST50 looks good for gaming but honestly it doesn't wow me as much as it should. On the other hand my 32" Samsung LED/LCD looks great when i turn on a game. The picture is vibrant, the colors appear accurate and dynamic, there isn't any motion blur either, i can't find much fault with it.
I think the Samsung LED-LCD's are excellent. Are the FH and EH series edge or backlit?
Personally would you choose a LED-LCD or Plasma for your bedroom? and which one would you choose if you we're to use it for gaming purposes to make the PQ appear best as possible?
EH/FH series is backlit, aka direct-lit or limited full-array
I went with a UN46EH6030 for my bedroom, which was about $650 when I got it. In my case, a 50" or larger plasma was out of the question as it would be too wide to fit on my current TV stand and because of space limitations a larger stand wouldn't work either. Also, if I was going the plasma route I would have preferred a ST60 over a S60 so that if I open the curtains during the day the PQ doesn't go flat (but that would raise the price to about $1K). For nighttime/light-controlled viewing though, I'd always pick a plasma over a LED-LCD (if it was an option).
For PQ with regards to gaming, I'd say while you need to watch out for IR/burn-in from leaving static elements on the screen for too long but the better overall PQ and superior motion resolution would make games look better. Most LED/LCDs exhibit a significant level of blurring with fast motion and gaming can sometimes expose this quite visibly (such as when moving the in-game camera around quickly). There's also the issue of viewing angles, where LED-LCDs can washout off-axis but plasmas stay completely unchanged.Edited by PlasmaPZ80U - 9/15/13 at 10:39am
