Hey, I'm buying a new telly! Woo! I'm after something hooge, 46" - 50". I've settled on either these new Samsung LCD LED (not really LED) tv's. They look good, and the series 8 is getting very good reviews, but the lower series are really only a loss in gimmicky functionalities rather than quality, and are a hella lot cheaper so I'll probably go for the series 6 or 7. Alternatively, I'm looking at the new Samsung B850 Plasma, a 50" skinny beast. It's been compared to the latest pannasonics, not a rival for the kuro, but loads less £££. Close though. However, I have heard varying opinions on plasmas. They are obviously cheaper, but they use a lot more power. Also, they suffer from image retention. Not a problem if you only watch films and TV, but my main uses are PC, Consoles and HD video. I don't even bother tuning my TV's. So I only watch HD content, but using games and PC on a plasma is where image retention happens. Also, plasmas I've seen just don't seem as crisp as LCD's when using a PC. Can anyone give me any advice. I'd prefer to get the plasma. It's (a lot) cheaper and bigger, but I can't get a straight answer out of shop folk about my questions. Cheers.
