Which LCD for my PS3 in my room (£800 and below?)

Hey guys

Im after a 1080p LCD tv for my room to play my ps3 on in super high definition

I will be sat about 2.5 - 3m away, my room isnt too dark but only have one window

I chose not to have plasma due to the risk of image burn (not good when games have huds) and the bright light "sticking" problem.

I have gradient banding so thats a no go and I want as little ghosting/image blur as possible.

So it will be used, on my wall, for games, bluray movies and freesat/sky at a later date.

Would be nice to have a bit of money left over for a hd freesat box however

Thanks

I've seen some LG's for a decent price recently. My brothers got a 1080p 40" Sony which is awesome and he got a free stand/Blu Ray player with it for £750 from Dixons I believe.

I have a 37" Toshiba which is an excellent TV for the price, although the black levels are slightly disappointing imo - colours and everything else are great but I guess I'm picky

It`s just about now that TVs are coming out with freesat built into them, so that might be worth checking out.

Only thing is that they are plasma meaning games with huds will produce burn in and high light levels such as explosions can leave a "mist" until the unit is turned off/changed to a television or similiar.

That's not really the case with modern Plasma's mate, it used to be but not really any more. All the modern Plasma's have technology to deal with that sort of thing.

I mean the best TV on the market is the Pioneer Kuro and that's just not an issue.

If you can get a decent quality plasma at a price you can afford, then I'd get one over an LCD if I were you.

Nah not really. Samsung's are good but the recent models have been a little style over substance.

I was going to mention Samsung. But I think if ur budget is £800, there are better ones to get.

If the budget was £500 or so, Samsung LCD are outstanding.

I love my Samsung, but for £800 I would have bought Tosh/LG. Toshiba at the time made what was regarded the best one, cant think of the model, and LG I`ve seen close up and they`re tremendous.

£1000+, I may well be looking at Sony. Some awesome ones in work.
