Hello,

Is anyone using a plasma tv as a monitor for pc gaming? I have a Samsung 55" plasma tv PN50C490.

I use mine for a home theater pc. I cringe everytime I use the comp and have to move a window around. The phosphor lag is nasty.

I couldn't imagine trying to play a game on one.

I used a th-50px80u for a couple of months, the phosphor lag was definitely there but i would take it over an lcd with any more than a 5ms response time any day.

No burn in either, there was some slight image retention but nothing worrysome. I should say i did take some precautions like setting the task bar to auto hide.

All in all it made a great monitor but the blacks just weren't deep enough for me.

I've always wondered why the phosphor lag is so pronounced compared to old crts, it's barely visible at all on my old rear projection.
