Hi everyone, I'm moving into my new condo soon and I need a new tv.


There's a lot more window there and my current projector setup might have some difficulties during the day.


So I need tv that won't have reflection from the windows and is bright enough for day time usage.


I want something at least 52" with great image quality.


I play a lot of video game and watch the best sport on earth (hockey), so I need a tv that is not prone to motion blur.


What kind of tv do you suggest or a particular model.


I would like to pay under 2000$ but I can go a bit more if required.


Thanks you in advance.

I saw a 72" DLP samsung in store, the viewing angle is really poor and would not fit my need, so it's either LCD 120hz or plasma

I think I'm set on a 120hz LCD, I'm thinking of the W4100, A750 and 52XV54U, is any of these has an advantage in motion blur?

Toshiba handles motion as good or better than most. Much better than the samsung 630 I owned.I havent watched any hockey on my 545 so I cant tell you if it completely eliminates motion blur. I doubt if it does. I dont think any lcd does.

I pulled the trigger on the toshiba 52xv545u, I know the kuro 5020 has better IQ but for my viewing condition, the toshiba should offer the best compromise.


I got it at 1900$ the kuro was 3999$, the samsung A750 was 2800$ and the sony W4100 was 2600$, so the price was also a factor.

Just FYI, a 5020 currently is within only a couple hundred of the price you paid for your TV. Not that it should sway you at all - LCD can output more light for daytime sports viewing in a room with a lot of ambient light, but the Kuro would hardly be a slouch and would be far superior for critical movie viewing. But if price was the major factor...$4K gets you much more than 50" on a Kuro, and what you paid will almost put a Kuro in your place.

Op even though you have somewhat ambient light you should stil consider plasma over lcd due to you watching sports requiring fast motion something lcd cannot deliver not as good as plasma, motion blurr is stuck to lcd flaws of its technology.


120hz 240hz etc etc its stil not meant to be seen like that, I would try a plasma while you are on your trial return on your lcd, also try fast motion sports games action movies and so on so that you know if you are confortable or if you dislike the motion on lcd.


motion blurr is just one issue lcd has on top of more visable issues, plasmas have issuess too but its not visable compared to lcd.


otherwise enjoy your set

notice how the ICE on your lcd looks overly bright. I've never seen blue shining ice at a hockey game, more like a dirty off white like you will see on a plasma.
