Best Hdtv For 360: Plasma, Dlp Or Lcos?
Posted 09 October 2006 - 05:12 PM
In the market for my first HDTV...will watch mainly sports, movies but also do a lot of 360 gaming on it. I have heard a lot of tv's have bad video lag issues when it comes to gaming. Anyone have any input on which type of HDTV is best for the best gaming experience?
I am considering a Samsung plasma, the new Sony SXRD (60-inch XBR2) or a Samsung DLP, the 6188 model. The dudes at Gamestop told me DLP is the best for gaming but I'd figure I should ask the good folks here first.
Thanks in advance.

i personally dont care for plasmas, especially with the chance of burn in,
also, if you have kids, you can fuxx up a plasma very easily applying pressure to the screen.

Sorry there is no contest. Ive got a nice LCD and HDCRT and the LCOS makes them look mickey mouse.
Go to a store and check them out. And you'll be like
*edit, he did say for gaming. If you want deeper blacks then DLP. IF you dont care then you want LCOS.

I really like the Samsung S5073 plasma...but not sure if I want to risk gaming on that sucker. The set does feature "floating pixel" technology which is supposed to reduce risk of burn in, but on AVSFORUM some people have still reported burn in issues. Image retention as well.
I went to see the DLP sets and they don't look as sharp as plasma...although many are saying that 360 performs great on the DLP sets. I am probably more confused now than I have ever been.
I am still considering the new Sony SXRD's...the 60XBR2. Not sure how that does for gaming....I might take my XBOX to the store and hook it up to test it...guess we'll see!

also, it takes a hell of a long time to burn in a set.
i got some burn in playing a certain MMORPG beta a while back, and that was excessive gaming almost to the max, and i can hardly see it anymore.
if you are a halo addict that plays all day everyday, then worry about a perma-hud, but casual gaming shouldnt mess it up.

I still prefer the picture quality of my 6 year old CRT than that of anything I've seen of DLP, Plasma, and SXRD at the stores. None of those seem as crisp on the edges. Unfortunately, being 6 years old, I have no HDMI, so I'm hoping studios don't start implementing that copyright crap to downscale movies anytime soon. When I do get another TV, I'll probably go with CRT again, depending on what comes out by then. It just looks better to me, and it's a hell of a lot cheaper. Don't want to have to replace bulbs either.
sounds like you may be interested in SED displays when they become available, similar technologhy to CRT but in glorious HD, proposed to be better quality and cheaper than LCD OR Plasma.
