Hi guys,


I would like to buy a new plasma tv, and at the moment I managed to have those candidates:

Samsung PS42B450

Samsung PS50B450

Samsung PS50B530

Samsung PS50B550

Panasonic TX-P50C10E

Panasonic TX-P50X10E

Panasonic TX-P42X10E

Panasonic TX-P46S10

Panasonic TX-P42S10E

Panasonic TX-P42U10

Panasonic TX-P42G10E

Panasonic TX-P42G15E


The only thing I do with my plasma will be watching divx (.avi, .mpg, etc) movies (burned on dvd.. or directly from the pc via vga).


My eyes are very sensitive so I'm looking for a silent tv that doesn't tire them.


Which ones of those plasma would be good for me? Which ones have only things I'm not looking for?


Thanks a lot!

Get the cheapest one. Divx files do look like garbage.


Why not run 1080P MKV files? Granted they are 10-15GB but they look like a factory bluray.

All these TVs can be dimmed if you don't like bright pictures. That will also lower your power bill, which is a nice bonus. You also also use bias lights to cut down eye strain. If you want to eliminate it entirely, leave the lights in the room on while you watch TV.


I also don't think any of them are significantly more or less "flickery" than any other. They all run at 60hz. 60hz on a plasma isn't the same as 60hz on a CRT, so don't assume that because your old computer monitor gave you a headache at 60hz that you can't stand that refresh rate.

Ok!


Thank you guys, I think I'll go for a Panasonic TX-P42S10E (because the most basic X10E has a bad resolution - even for divx).


Bye

I usually go for the 720p mkv files, they can look quite good and are alot smaller.

Most of my files are dumped after watching once anyway. It's hard for me to think of a movie lately that's worth keeping to watch again. I can think of very few that I've made a point of keeping around such as....Terminator 2, Apocalypto, Blackhawk Down, Rescue Dawn, Reign Over Me....to name a few.
