To anyone who is out there looking to answer this nice person's question, I was wondering if you could answer my related question. I have a similar budget (might spend a bit more if needed) and I'm stuck between Plasma or LCD. I always thought LCD until just recently when some J&R techies and Best Buy techies told me "no way" for video gaming and sports, you want Plasma." I was surprised to hear that. Now, I'm wondering which technology to go for and then which model. I noticed some of the reviews said that the pioneer plasma (the one that got hte 8.7) has a gaming mode and so does the Samsung 5084, but CNET doesn't test those features. Does anyone know? Can anyone help. I can't believe this decision is so hard and complicated. Thanks in advance. -Joe
I'm sure you already seen this question but I still don't have the answer.
I got a 2500$ budget and I want a LCD HDTV 40" or more.
Which HDTV should I buy and should I care about 1080p?
