    I was lookin at 3D TVs last night I'm pretty sure I'm getting this 55" bad boy on saturday interest free finance for 30 months http://www.harveynorman.com.au/produ...t-d-led-lcd-tv I have a hook up through a friend in chatswood Harvey Norman and can get this model for $2200 on finance.

    I mainly want it for playing Gran Torismo 5 in 3D on PS3 (yes it supports 3D natively I have a 42" LCD that i'll move in my bedroom or sell for $400 if anyone wants it.

    Anyone have a good 3D TV that they suggest around the same price range? If its around $3200 i should be able to get it for around $2200... Even though the refresh rate is 200Hz it seems like it still kind of jitters a bit when your playing high res blurays when i looked at it in JB HiFi last night...

    I'm buying it tomorrow probably maybe someone has some input thats done more research on them than I have?

    Cheers

    LG products are horrible...that particular model in particular...

    it only uses a passive 3d mode, much like cinema 3d movies (el cheapo glasses) its actually quite a low resolution and washed out (color) picture in comparison to active 3d models...

    as for return/failure rates...in my workplace LG easily has the highest DOA percentage...

    if your going to use a screen for gaming/movies/sport like most of us...buy a plasma...

    they are naturally able to handle motion and realistic color...

    anyone that tells you LED is superior to plasma is trying to take extra money from your pocket...especially in the larger screens

    models of interest are Panasonic ST/GT series and Samsung D550...

    if you wanna watch something quite funky...watch the matrix with a 100hz/200hz lcd/led screen and tell me the bullet dodging scenes dnt look horrible...(tv uses algorithms to predict/create extra frames...if the motion isnt nature, then it does all kinds of funky things)

    but will check back on this tomorrow evening and see what else is said...

    you do realise that the current generation of plasma screens are using less power than last years LCD models? id also guess that you have no interest in having superior picture quality either...vote greens you say?

    i didnt end up buying one. Harvey norman doesnt have the sales on any more it was only the the saturday before.. Damn.. If someone sees a good deal on something like this or similar please let me know.. Besides that model was a bit jittery on really fast motion sequences.. Are all lcds like this? Your saying plasmas dont suffer from this in general? so im gonna keep looking for something above 50 inch at a decent price...with the active/passive 3d i cant really notice the difference lol..

    Plasmas are always better for faster action like sports & movies.

    LCDs are crap. Avoid.

    Lcds/leds are crap...they have a place in the market...just not in large size screens being used for sport/gaming/movies as most people falling under the car enthusiast stereotype are likely to use them for...

    Plasmas dont generally require any kind of artificial processing as seen in lcd/led screens...anything shown on a lcd/led whether its tv, movie or console gaming is always heavily processed...extra frames artificially inserted to help with the motion or colors being adjusted so as the screen can show a 'better color range'...moving forward lcd/led/oled will be the technically superior type of screen, but it isnt as yet...plasma still holds that postition...

    Reason for suggesting panasonic in particular is they hold the rights to alot of pioneers technology since buying out pioneers tv development team. The two main ones being the kuroi (blacker blacks) and antiglare screen. Unlike samsung trying to produce high end lcd/led and plasma screens panasonic have stuck to only producing high end plasma with a smaller led offer. panasonic models are also generally assembled in japan and stored/shipped out of places such as china and taiwan in attempts to cut costs logistically rather than product quality...

    If you can find new stock of last years VT20 series panels, jump on it as they would b quite cheap now...otherwise the new ST30/GT30/VT30 are the go

    Anyways, epic novel post considering its from iphone lol...might post more later...
