Buying a HDTV for gaming and movies. Need advice...
Buying a HDTV for gaming and movies. Need advice... –
Hi guys! Well I am thinking of buying a new HDTV, primarily for gaming, and watching HD movies..The size range I'm considering is around 37" ~ 42", .. I cant afford anything bigger :P...
So basically I have a few questions for you guys...if you could just help me out here....
1) Considering the fact that I will be using this HDTV for gaming, are there any 'special features' I should look out for in a HDTV ?? Features that can enhance my gaming experience ?
2) For the indicated size range (37" ~ 42") I am not sure if a Full HD 1080p is really recommendable or not...because many people claim that in this size range, it is hard to notice any difference between 1366x768 and 1920x1080 (although I personally think I probably will be able to notice the difference :P )..
3) In addition to the above question...If I get a Full HD 1080p LCD, it will most probably be a Philips one, because thats all I can afford...So is it better to go for a Philips 42" Full HD 1080p LCD, or a non-Full HD LCD, from a more respectable company such as Sony or Samsung ?
4) Is it better to get a slightly bigger LCD, with 'average' specifications, or a slightly smaller LCD, with somewhat 'better' specifications (contast ratio, etc..)?
5) I have seen some HDTV's being listed as 'Analogue' .. (specifically some Sony HDTVs) ?!? Why is this ? Aren't all HDTV's digital ?
I am very confused about all this, since this is my first shot at HDTVs.... If someone can help me out with the above issues, I will be very grateful ! ...Thanks people ..
My experience with LCD's is the picture always looks grainy and grayish, i'd get a plasma instead.
I actually recommend a Sony SXRD if you have enough space. It's quite a bit bulkier than a normal LCD/Plasma (a lil like a CRT) but it has 6 megapixels instead of 2, cuz the three colour boards that are usually fused together in a standard FullHD LCD are seperated, giving much better quality. The 55" one costs similar to the 37" D series which is why, if you have the space in your home, you should get it
and Sony might be wanting to get rid of it x[
I've got the 70" one at home which is great for movies however the smaller screen you get for FullHD TVs generally, the better quality you get cos the pixels aren't spread so far apart.
