That new sony 84" is phenomenal
I'm trying to decide between a 60 and a 70 and whether or not the extra 10" will be worth the added expense..... I don't have anything else to buy atm but it's a matter of principal I don't want to spend more than $3000 on a TV.
LEDs are LCDs, but instead of a CCFL backlight, they're LED backlit. The edge lit models are garbage, the only LEDs worth buying are the ones with local dimming. Still, a plasma is superior in every visual way to a LCD, so as long as you aren't susceptible to the visual anomalies of plasma technology, go with a plasma.Hawkwing74 wrote:This is a thread diversion now, but if money were no object, what is the best TV? LCD vs LED vs Plasma? I read an article that said Plasma handled black the best but LED was the brightest and most energy efficient.
The Lord of the Rings is a poor transfer, so you might be disappointed to see it on Blu-ray. It's still miles better than the DVD, but the theatrical editions have been scrubbed to death with noise reduction, and the extended editions have a weird turquoise hue to them.Hawkwing74 wrote:My main goal is to have Blu-ray movies look as good as possible on my screen. 55" is probably as big as I need to go right now. Some of the movies that I want to see look spectacular are Star Wars, Serenity, Lord of the Rings, etc.
No matter how terrible Episode 7 may or may not be... it will look fantastic on your new TV.Dizik wrote:So, uh.....Star Wars?
