    Looking at getting another TV just for the xbox, currently using a 100hz LED TV and I don't like it for gaming it doesn't seem to refresh fast enough there is definate blurring, I've read around that plasmas are still the way forward unless you have a massive budget, can anyone recomend a decent sized plasma 32" pllus for my price range? Or am I asking too much?

    I have had a look around and there are a few cheap 42s at around £350 but I think im clutching at straws hoping there ok as I've got very little funds at the moment lol.



    Cheers peeps in advance.

    Panasonic and Samsung make decent plasma tv's. Sadly I cannot recommend you anything as I don't own one. But perhaps looking into reviews of those brands will help?

    I don't think you'll get a plasma at 32" IIRC they all start at about 42"

    What is your current TV? A lot of TVs at 100Hz don't play well with standard inputs, and you may need to play around with motion interpolation settings on the TV to get it to look right. Considering the refresh rate on the Xbox is only 60 hz, to display smoothly at 100Hz your TV will need to make up the other 40 frames by interpolation, which is where the blurring is likely coming from.

    I've got an LG 47" LCD its not LED Can't remember the model was about £550 new at Christmas from Richer Sounds.
    I've turned off all the motion stabilizers and fidled with the settings and still can't get along with the TV, I kind of regret selling my old TV :(.
    Might be time to scan for some 42" plasmas and see what review sites throw up :)
