    Hello

    Im currently shopping for a new HDTV to replace my
    32" samsung lcd, ive decided to go for a 42" plasma
    as IMO PQ is just better than lcd on all sources including
    gaming, my choices are either the panasonic 42px700
    or one of the new pioneer 8th gen plasma's when they
    are released (thats if the new pioneer's aren't to expensive).

    I would just like to know what everybody else is using
    with there xbox 360?

    Thanks

    I'm looking to get the new Samsung M87 1080p set sometime soon.

    I've not even considered a plasma due to potential problems with screen burn, especially with things like power bars / speedometers etc that would sit in the same place on screen for possibly hours on end in a long session.

    Also heard that the "Press red" icon while watching sky is an issue nowadays as it's often on screen.

    Some people say it's nto an issue nowadays, but if so, why do companies put a disclaimer in their manuals about it with a warning.... Personally i don't want to spend loads on a TV to risk have something like this happen.

    Jp The panny's are brilliant value for money, and from what i've seen stunning pq for what you need.

    As are the pio's, but i wouldn't get your hopes up with them being cheap (havn't done any price research so could be wrong)

    also just for the record don't even let the screen burn factor affect your decision. There is no way anything will burn on a good quality screen.

    In fact i'm surprised the term still gets thrown around

    I agree with you, i also think that screen burn is over rated these days as long as your careful, ive been through the whole plasma vs lcd debate myself and while lcd's are getting better IMO they still have a long way to go before they can match plasma's for blacks, grey/shadow detailing and realistic colour reproduction and thats why im buying a plasma because at the end of the day the one and only reason for buying a tv is its PQ.

    Not being funny but the guy in that thread got retention on a Samsung with a built in feature called pixel shift ..what do you expect

    Buying a plasma with a feature that is there to try and clear retention should be a good indication that Samsung expect it to suffer from retention :rotfl:

    ALL Plasmas suffer from retention and potential screen burn. Doesn't matter about the make.

    Even CRT's can suffer for screen burn!

    LG LC37DB over component (720). Looks fine to me, but then I'm not a huge AV fanatic, I just know what I like.

    hitachi pjtx300 projector with 80 inch screen. Anything smaller now would just look rubbish! You can get hi def projectors for less than a grand, i dont know why people are so obsessed with getting plasma/lcds when you can have a much bigger and excellent quality picture for the same or less money.

    I use a 42" panny plasma at home, and a sammy LCD at work (about 24" I think, but higher res than the plasma). You'll definately be happy with the change :smashin:

    Im running a HD 720p projector - Pansonic PT-AE700 on an 8ft widescreen.

    Once you get used to viewing on one of these there is no turning back.

    As has been said before, when you can get fixed up with an HD projector for less than a grand why bother with LCD/Plasma?? :smashin:

    You got just as much risk as your lcd having dead pixels and back light bleed. (porbably more actually)

    In answer to the topic question, I'm using a Samsung LE40F71B at 1080P over VGA. It looks Fantastic and even after 2 months or so, I'm still awed by the picture quality.

    There is a newer range of 1080p sets available now but I haven't looked into the reviews of these, happy with what I got. :smashin:

    I've got the Sony 52X2000 & I have to say it's stunning with the 360. However, I've had 6 months of hassle returning the first set I had which was plagued with the backlight bleed problem. Sony seem to deny it's an issue.:suicide:

    Samsung LE40R87BDX, looks fab through VGA which was a nice suprise as all the other displays I'd tried VGA on looked dull and flat.
