Well ? would it?


Also how is Plasma tech now?

In the past people have told me to shy away from them...

I'd stay away from the Plasma's...until they finally make plasma grenades, then I'd buy every one I could get my hands on.

I doubt it would have motion blur. Remember the source of most of what you watch will be lower than 120hz. It's good for sports, but for movies it tends to give me motion sickness. It just doesn't look right.
(maybe not so much 120hz, but 240hz can be disorienting)

I'm sticking 120 for sure.
My Father in law has a 240 and its almost unwatchable for me.

Its hard to explain.
Its like everything looks strange.
To smooth is the best way to describe it.

When I first got the LED, everything looked kind of hyper real to me... now that i'm used to it, I don't really notice it.

There is no blur or anything on sports however...

Samsungs are very nice. Sounds like a good deal.

That unnatural look is all of the interpolated frames your TV inserts into the 60 Hz source. I hate it.

Two reasons I don't like them.... most of their screens are shiny and reflect lights, windows etc...

They are very hot... and are energy hogs.

Their pictures are very good, but if there are reflections on the screen, it drives me nuts.

fair enough, I was just curious because I always hear bad things about them. I have a 42" Samsung Plasma and I love it.

If I could ever sell my Supra I plan on getting a 60" Samsung Plasma

I got a 60" last year Zenith. I was afraid of Plasma (burn in etc). So far all I can say is WOW. The energy sticker say something like 40.00 per year in power consumption. It's been used with Directv/blue ray/ps3. You will have some image retention but it goes away. So don't be afraid of new good brand name plasma.

If you have a dark room go Plasma, if there is a lot of light go led.

Matte screens are a definite. If you go LED, make sure its fully lit (skip the edge lit varieties, some have very uneven lighting).
As I said before, sports are fine in 120 or 240 hz. It looks great if you're using bunny ears: satellite and cable signals are very compressed.
Movies can be hard to watch - I guess you could get used to it.

We've had higher-end Samsung 120 Hz LCDs for almost 4 years now and I love them. 46" is actually the size in our basement, so you should be alright. That said, some of the lower-end models can look a little chintzy at times, so definitely research what you're going to buy. With the prices of TVs as low as they are, I'm not sure it wouldn't be worth stepping up to a higher end model and avoiding all doubt.
