Although we are half talking about plasmas here this seemed the best forum for it....

I'm trying to select a new tv and ive narrowed it down to a few options:

Plasma

LCD

I'm trying to keep it under £1000. I will be using this tv for high def gaming, movies and general computer use all connected by hdmi. Right now I'm leaning towards the Samsung-LE40A656 but I will need to wait for it to go down a little in price.

Which normally looks better when using a computer 1080p dvi output, plasma or lcd?

Any help you could give would be great!

Having owned a Samsung LCD, I'd choose the plasma. However you're using it with a computer, so for that I'd get the LCD. Maybe buy both, go dual view, plasma for movie playback (secondary) and the LCD for desktop (primary) :thumbsup:

Had a look at that set but thought that the samsung seemed to have the edge.

One question I forgot to ask is does anyone know if the samsung have 1:1 pixel mapping?
