    hiya Guys.

    Think i have made up my mind that I am going to get a plasma, but I am confused about the contrast ratio.

    I wanted to get a higher resolution as i will use my HTPC on the plasma, but seems the contrast ratio is lower with the higher resolution.

    So whats more important 3000:1 contrast ratio and low resolution, of 1000:1 contrast ratio and a higher resolution.

    Thanks

    Dale

    Also whats the DVD you can get to help setup your plasma colours.

    How about getting a panny 3000:1 and high resolution?

    Contrast is basically measured by the brightness of the brightest bright over the blackest of black. There is no absolute black (void of light) achieveable by any device, there will always be some light even at black unless your TV can generate a black hole.

    The problem with contrast ratio is that it doesn't tell you whether the panel can actually produce deep blacks or the panel can simply produce ridiculous whites but average blacks. It only tells you the difference between the darkest colour and the brightest colour the TV can produce. So don't get too hung up on the figures.

    How much would a Panny with 3000:1 Contrast Ratio, and a high resolution be?
