A hint I’ve read; if you are going to demo a plasma or LCD TV take DVD with live action (like a fast car chase) it will show the weaknesses of video latency as identified in an earlier post. Most shops will use a demo DVD from Pixar (like Finding Nemo and such), because they are digitally generated images with no video latency.

*disclaimer – this is not my field of expertise and am happy to be corrected.

I bought a Hitachi 42" plasma a couple of years back now and I am running a ps3 and xbox360 through it and the difference between standard def and high def is briiliant in my oppinion.
I had a 32" lcd before and to be quite honest the plasm kicks ass for picture quality. :wink:

The plasm does get bloody hot though :shock:

No need for central heating in my front room - I just switch the telly on. :lol: :lol:

The video latency is a function of the processing inside the set, not the content.

As an interesting note Samsung make many of the LCD panels for Sony. :wink:


Not correct, it's a joint venture. Also Sony have tied up with Sharp in a JV for the next generation.

While the Samsung and Sony panels have the same LCD cell, the backlight is very different as is the signal processing.

This Samsung story is a favourite one with their sales reps.


Also with the sales people in the shop that I bought my Samsung TV from. They're the ones that told me that. And they sell Sony as well.

I can highly recomend both my sets:

42" Plasma non-hi def LG (for watching stuff in bed)

46" LCD true hi-def Samsung (cost me a bomb a year back) for use on my xbox 360 and films...

Despite one being hi-def and the other standard, you cant really tell the difference when watching divx films etc.

I'd agree with that - over compressed HD stuff is effectively standard def anyway!
