    LED or Plasma TV for Gaming?

    Want to buy a new TV (40-42") and cant decide between LED and Plasma. Mainly will be used for films and XBOX and have been looking at Samsung UE40C7000 or UE40B7000 or Panny G20.

    Basically wondered if the reported lag on LED really makes a difference?

    Also seen stories about loss of blacks on Panny and bad light bleed on Samsung and the Plasma runs hotter than LED but still cant decide. 3D not required

    Anyone got any real experience and seen any deals on the models above?

    thanks in advance

    Go for the Panny G20, i was gonna get the G10 but opted for S10 instead as they had run out and my discount needed to be used on that day.

    All the research i did for the G10 gave it glowing reviews and i assume the G20 is better.

    I use my TV for Gaming and blu ray with a bit of sd freeview, all looks lovely and im quite fussy.

    I have no knowledge on LED though

    Get a plasma which still offers best picture quality in my opinion. Brought a G20 abou|For t a month and half ago and it is pretty faultless with an incredible picture espically for blu-ray. At the moment you can get the g20 plus a blu-ray player with a five year warranty for £899 from House of Frasier.

    It's LCD not LED.



    The LCD tvs he's talking about are LED backlit TVs so OP is correct and you are wrong. Again.

    I would go for an LED TV if I were you.

    Of course. That's why Samsung have marketed it this whole time without it being stripped of that title. Not LED in the true sense but still LED nonetheless.

    You're wrong again but still have a lot of trouble dealing with it. Your hurt. I can tell by the anger in your posts, could be due to a difficult childhood so I won't ridicule you further. Watch out for the flying chairs.

True LED TVs costs thousands for a tiny screen. I can't believe your come back was actually you been tricked by Samsungs marketing department.



    maybe not but thats what its known as. a true led tv is known as just that. would you rather everyone said LCD LED everytime they were referring to it ?

    I was being lazy with LED in the title - thanks for the comments guys. I am leaning towards a plasma despite some reports of buzzing as I am keen to finally get a decent score on MW2

    Still referred to as LED even though it's only LED backlit.

    I think everyone is quite aware it is not a true LED screen, just that nobody apart from somebody like fanpages can be bothered to call it an LED backlit LCD television.
