He brought 3 of these last weekend
Sony - BRAVIA 40" Class / 1080p / 120Hz / LCD HDTV - KDL40EX500 (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Sony+-+BRAVIA+40%22+Class+/+1080p+/+120Hz+/+LCD+HDTV/9761226.p?id=1218168618486&skuId=9761226)
and his ps3

Hes not impressed with the video so he wants to return and buy something better.

Hes lookin at plasmas and i donno a **** thing about em.

So im hoping for some advice ot which plasmas to took for and specs to looks for, and so on and so forth.

So an feedback who be greatly appreciated.

what did he not like about the video?...perhaps adjusting some settings can help him out, rather than buying a new tv

two 46" Samsung LED tv's would look real nice. Then instead of another TV, get another ps3.

2 ps3's and 2 tv's. or 2 tv's and then xbox and ps3.

i dont think he wants to pay that much.But your those tvs are amazing


...why does he want 3 TV's in the same room? :confused:

sports fanatic is a bit of understatement. And i think its a last toy before his baby is born.


what did he not like about the video?...perhaps adjusting some settings can help him out, rather than buying a new tv

from what he told me is that the video was a bit choppy, like he was getting lag. He couldn't really explain it.

haha thats somthing i would do, hes not much a gamer. A game of madden a couple times a week, he mainly got it for the blu ray

So are plasmas the way to go? I allways thought they had durability issues.

Anyone point in the direction of a nice plasma or some info so i can educate myself:D

First of all I have a 52" samsung plasma and I love It but it has a few Issues that I hate It is more of a power hog then lcd or led It gets really hot heating a room up by up to 4 Degrees mine is 60hz and It glares really bad now the plus is that it has every plugin ever needed and a great color reproduction! But If you buy a LED tv It will last more then 10 years but I'm sure you will upgrade by then The have better color then my awesome plasma they dont heat up and they are cheap to power but a little bit pricey but hey they are worth every penny

Samsung or Sony/ 120hz/ LED/ 42-52" < Thats what you should start your search for

their are way too many factors to take into consideration. room, windows, sports viewing, basic viewing, lighting, etc....?

here's a run down:

Plasma - Almost any Panasonic

LED - Samsung

LCD - Samsung or Sony

you need way more information than "don't like picture" and "recommend a TV". I've been a rep for Sony, Panasonic, and Samsung and this is the worst type of person to deal with. You either know what the room looks like or you don't, you either know what's primarily going to be watched or you don't, people that are this vague usually wind up buying Insignia or the lowest possible model b/c price is their biggest factor.

Theres 2 windows in the room. Both would be on the left side of the tvs. Hes going to mount them on the walls about the same hieght as the windows. Hes going to be watching ALOT of sports. And a slight bit of gaming. He will be looking stright at the tv's no angles just stright on. As for room the tv's will take up the entire wall.

what's the price range? wanted size? also what source unit did he use on the Sony to determine he didn't like the picture?

i think he wants to stay below 1k each, hes looking at 37-42". Pretty sure hes still using comcast. He said it seemed like it would skip frames.
Like the player would be at half court then hes at the 3pt line. I dont know if it was actually that bad, but thats how he explained it to me when i talked to him earlier today.

Plasma TV's don't really have the issues people claim they do anymore. They still offer the best picture quality and the blackest blacks... and I've gamed the hell out of mine after I broke it in for a bit with a disc designed to tone down new plasma TVs. It does retain an image for a few minutes after gaming but after that it is fine, looks as good as it did 2 years ago honestly.

That said, most people are going to tell you that plasma TVs will burn in, dim over time, etc.

Most people game on LCD TV's, but you give up a bit of picture quality when compared to a good plasma.

Cool thanks first hand info is what i really wanted.

im not sure if he tested it on his ps3 or not. But sports are his main thing, and he wasnt impressed. Ill ask him what he was using when he tested he might have been using a comcast basic cable box instead of the hd one.
