    hi guys im new here, been watching from the sidelines for a bit and was just wondering if any of u guys could help me out,

    im looking to upgrade to a new hdtv from my old crt, i think im pretty much set on a lcd as i tend to have the tv on quite alot in my house. its basically on 24hours a day so bit worried about burn in on plasma screens, also im constantly playing computer games so i was wondering what lcd over 46 inches will give me the absoloute best picture quality on freeview and high definition material price not being a factor

    theres a few thing im looking for in an lcd

    1. 1080p
    2.1080/24fps if possible on lcd
    3.and a nice gloss black finish

    if anyone could point me in the right direction id me more then greatfull

    cheers in advance

    Burn out isn't a thing to worry about on modern plasmas. If you can afford a top line Plasma you will get a better SD picture on Sky HD ( if you are getting it ), I have a Sony LCD and my mates LG plasma has a better picture for SD sky and I take it freeview would be the same.

    HD looks amazing on the Sony LCDs though.

    But LCDs are in general a better price.

    even if the tv will be left on for long periods of time (like i said sometimes 24hours) sometimes with the logo of various tv programs im watching and gaming with various hud's in the corner
    i thought plasmas still had issues if there not treated very gently

    Local demo plasma has screenburn also noticed elseware...so still a problem. Also flickers like CRT.

    Samsung M86/M87 meets all three although gloosy fascia is a dust magnet, the screen stays dust free. I guess all the dust gets stuck to the fascia instead :)

    It might be worth looking at the latest Samsung F96 TVs. I think they're on the verge of being released....They only come in 52inch plus (I think) but they use a swanky new piece of tech called a "local dimming backlight"....have a root around the forums if you want a bit more info, but basically this tech should allow huge contrast ratios. I'd like one myself, but 50inch is just too big :(

    Here are some forum threads you might want to look at:

    Any of these would fit the bill. As for plasma vs LCD, probably best to audition a couple and see which you prefer. On a side note plasma burn-in/image retention is still an issue...it's inherent to the technology. It's probably not as bad as it used to be, but LCDs PQ is also way better than it used to be :)

    I had an LG plasma before my LCD and the Mrs used to leave the music channels on all day long ( all have got logos in the top corner ) and I didn't have any screen burn.

    I used to leave the TV on an orbiter function though, this function moved the picture around slightly every few minutes ( you didn't know it was happening ) , theoreticly helping to reduce any screen burn.
