    I want to buy an LCD TV, with a component connection and ability to play Xbox 360 in at least 720p. Just wondering what people can recommend? I've been warned off sets that have repsonse times higher than 16ms - what does everyone else use and how do they perform?

    I use a CRT and plasma for my main console gaming and both are very good. My friend has an older LCD set for gaming and to be honest football games are very difficult to play as the ball gets ‘lost’. However, his LCD is couple of years old. I’m sure newer LCDs would have better response times.

    Loads of answers and advice there.
    The Samsung lcd (model?) is the one MS have signed up to use with the 360 - it will be used on all promo displays in shops etc.

    I used to use my lcd for gaming but reverted to my crt. Not because of smearing though distant objects did have some bluring, but i like to sit close to the screen when gaming and on a big screen it felt odd. I will restart using it for the next gen hd consoles tho
