If you have never watched t.v on a plasma before it will strain your eyes but eventually you will get used to it, however this may not be good for your eyes for the best 3d output dont know myself

depends on how much you got to spend,but i would go for led a lot cheaper to run and great contrast
#3
was lookin at about £1500 for a 3d setup and never had plasma before

why will a plasma strain your eyes?

most bizarre thing I've read about them....and I sell them for a living.
I went from a 37" LCD to a 50" plasma and I wouldnt go back to LCD again now except in smaller sizes like up to 32"

I bought the Samsung UE467000. Its a brilliant LED 3D TV. The colours are so much brighter and whites really white and blacks really black (3,000,000:1 contrast ratio). The 2D picture is truely excellent too. The TV has internet capabilities (with £49 dongle or wired to your router) i.e. Love film streaming, iPlayer, youTube etc plus if you have a smartphone you can use it to control the TV. It also 'upscales 2D to 3D if you want but I just use 3D for movies. When buying it I was going for the 50" Plasma deal but when I saw the pictures sise by side the LED won out and I took the smaller 46" TV. Ps its Wafer Thin!

weird, my dad prefers it over his 28" CRT now and he was previously a glaucoma sufferer, but he had his vision corrected and now doesnt need glasses anymore at 66.
i prefer the plasma over the LCD/LEDs for the reason that it looks like a proper TV and not a giant PC monitor with bad over saturated colours, backlight bleed and terrible black levels.

and the LED tvs arent TRUE LEDs, Quango. its still an LCD screen but backlight by arrays of LEDs rather than by a CCF tube (or collection of them)

def the first time Ive heard about anyone sufferring from eye strain on a plasma tho.
but I've only taken an interest in Tvs since I started selling them. before that i didnt know anything about them at all, it was all "how does Nvidia compare to ATI" etc etc.

although I've since discovered that you can be more knowledgeable about products than the next guy, but if he's got better patter, he gets the sales!

@MR1123 - What does your quoted link tell you? Perhaps if you had read the thread, you and your relatives may not have eyestrain.

I have used Plasma, LCD and recently LED (edge lit). They all have their pros and cons, Only one thing is clear - all three types of TVs will be panned for the quality of sound on them so a buyer may want to budget for that.

Quango - You're right to see with your own eyes. Do some research in mags and forums and find out which tech suits you, then find which set.

thanks Chocka :)

can i offer you some advice because you support the best team in the world..... do not purchase a 3d tv yet as the technology has yet to mature. Hold off for another few years and i promise you far superior sets will come out soon.

Disclaimer: The promise is not binding and is not subject to any financial claims should the technology not mature in time.
