hi guys!

I really need help i am purchasing a tv tomorrow and have a really hard time making a decision.

I am deciding between TC-P50ST30(Panasonic Plasma) vs KDL46EX500(LCD)
or if you guys have any other options please feel free to guide me.

My needs:
I use the TV for mostly movies(PS3) and around 30% of my time for videogames(PS3)

-I need a minimum 46inch.
-No need for 3D
-Picture quality is the most important

900-1000$ budget.
I am from Canada so i will most likely purchase the tv at

thank you guys so much in advance!

What do you know about plasma and LCD? two quite different tech.
If you dont need 3D Id go for the S30 or with slightly better PQ and more features the G30. Plasma will give you lower lag for gaming, has no viewing angle restrictions, better motion, no uniformity issues and the G30 has great black levels as does the ST30 without the loss of detail you get with LCD. plasma isnt for everyone as LCD can go brighter, dont get IR and some can see flicker and trailing on plasma, so go demo both sets if you can.
