Then it would have been plasma and DLP for gaming.
But LCD's have gotten much faster and much cheaper! Yes the LED/LCD is the newest thing, much long lamp life than the cold cathode florescent LCD.
You have a lot of things to hook up, why don't you spend time looking at the back of the TV for one that has all inputs you need. When you have narrowed it down re post.
I am in the process of buying a house and once I get one will be buying a new big screen TV (probably 42 inch) for the living room. This will be used for both PS2 console I have, an ancient Nintendo Entertainment System (I think it is like the 2nd or so one they came out with) my girlfriend refuses to part with and has threatened me with death if it disappears since she loves the 2nd edition Mario and Link, a Wii that we want to get, and on occasion computer hook up to watch videos and play computer games that are not available for PS, watching movies and just general TV.
Man I have gone to about 20 different websites and forums and get differing opinions on almost every one. One side says do NOT get Plasma get LED/LCD, the other side says the opposite. Who is right? Supposedly the Plasma is faster but from what I have read the speed difference is so small that most would not notice unless you are REALLY into that sort of thing.
Burn in/Burn Out seems to be an issue with Plasma. According to some of the websites the new screens are better but can still suffer from the problem.
I have a 23 inch rectangular screen LED and have had no problems with my PS2 or with the old Nintendo and it is plenty fast enough for me. Another issue is hooking up a computer, 3 gaming systems, a satellite/cable box, VCR and a DVD up to whatever TV I decide on. So ease of hook up is an issue too...
Anyway I am confused.
