Eyes too sensitive for plasma :(


Established Member
A bit gutted tbh, bought a Panasonic tx-p46s20b, lovely picture, smooth playback etc, only... i have just found out I am highly sensitive to phosphor trails (probably due to staring a computer monitor all my life). It didn't occur to me when buying a plasma that this would be an issue. It's really noticeable and sometimes looks like a green and yellow disco on the screen, sometimes not noticeable at all, but when it happens it's really off putting.

Also got a sony lcd 32" upstairs, so yanked out the ps3 to try the same film (Terminator 4 for what it's worth) on that tv and no trails, lights on and off, moved closer and further away etc.

I don't suppose something as simple as a firmware update would solve the problem? (I highly doubt this, but you never know)

So what LCD (pref 46") will give me the same quality as the tx-p46s20b (assuming I am sensitive to all plasmas... I don't have the time or money to keep testing out individual models, so LCD it is).
