on how many hours you game. I would NEVER use a Plasma as a computer monitor.
1080p, that also depend how far you sit.
just get the the new 650 samsung or a sony Z or V series.... also go for the 46 you will be happier in the end
Right now im looking to replace a 40 inch Samsung LNS4051DX that is about 2 years old that i play an xbox 360 on. Great tv, picture looks great for something that is only 4000 to 1 contrast ratio, but my friend just bought a Samsung LN46A630 LCD, and the picture blows my tv away. Is it mainly because of the response time (4 ms) and refresh rate (120 hz)? Or the better constrast ratio, making the picture that much better? I've been reading that 1080p is pointless at the smaller sizes, but i want everything else that comes with the new 1080p t.v's. I'm considering buying a plasma because i have been told that there is absolutely no motion blurring affect due to the nature of the technology, but am afraid of the supposed 'burn in' from gaming on the tv. I'm also using the tv as a computer monitor, which i have also heard bad things about plasmas being used as monitors. Im considering getting the samsung 630 or 650 series in either 40 or 46 inches; if plasmas were the way to go what is a comparable tv?
