I am moving and the family room will only handle a flat panel so am between a Plasma and LCD and know if I go plasma I will only go Pioneer or Panny.


I will have a 9-12 feet viewing distance with minimal light coming in from blinds. I mainly will be watching sports (Football, Nascar, Hockey and baseball) and do not want anything that can not handle the fast paced action.


Thanks for everyones advice. My spending limit is $3000

I'm an interested observer of the LCD FP market right now, but if I was buying I think I'd be most tempted by the Toshiba 52XF550U. At least based on what I see in the stores, which is always dependent on the very iffy degree of calibration given by store employees. This morning I saw my first Sony W4100 and it was impressive too, but somewhat above your price limit at least for now.

Samsung LN52a750 with out a doubt. The best LCD on the market right now. You can get it on big river for below your budget delivered.

Any new updates on the new samsung line coming in August? What is this years new technology since last year was the 120hz?


I like the 52a750 but still not quite as good on fast action sequences as the panny or pioneer plasma. Was wondering if the new models will improve on this?


On another note, if I have eye strain issues staring at an LCD at work for hours on occasion, will the LCD give me the same? Will I get over it? I ask because I remember going to a 60" RPTV CRT Mits and it took about a week to get over the eystrain headaches getting adjusted to it.

Maybe a Pio would be better for you.

Meaning that the LCD is harder for the eyes to adapt to? Anyone else with some input?


I looked at TV's today and the one thing I did not like on the Pioneer is that it was much darker and dim compared to the LCD's. Also, it was hot, like it could heat a room it was so hot.

For LCD I would go with LN52A750.


For Plasma the Panasonic 50PZ800U or Pioneer 5020FD.


Based on your lighting conditions plasma will still be a great choice. You should have minimal reflections.
