Looking for a new TV

Postby _Marcus_ on 26/08/13, 13:22:12

Not really liking my four year old LG 42" anymore and am therefore looking for something new.

I'm kinda into the whole Smart TV-thing that most manufacturers seem to implement these days, but I have no idea how to separate the brands. I have it down to either a Samsung, an LG, a Panasonic or maybe a Toshiba. All LED TV:s as far as I'm concerned. Any suggestions?

Should one go with a plasma or a LED? Is Plasma still the better value?

Go LED LCD. I've been fond of Samsung these past few years. I own three different Samsung LED sets of varying sizes and so far no problems and they look great.

Lot's of people saying plasma is the way to go still, with smoother picture quality etc. Is that not a huge deal when it comes to LED LCD, you'd say?

The people saying that are behind on technology. A couple of years ago that was true. Most any LCD with a refresh rate of 120Hz or higher will not have a problem with motion blur, and pretty much any one that is LED backlit will likely be of a higher refresh rate. If money is an issue than yeah, you might get a little more bang for the buck with the plasma. But if you are just looking for the best display, go with a good high refresh rate LED backlet LCD. You'll get a smooth, well lit picture.
