If you really want to get the most out of your screen but especially for plasmas you should break it in, this DVD is a pretty good one, it'll ensure a nicer more IR resistant screen by running through all shades and colours evenly when the display is most vulnerable
slapnutz:(2) Whats the best (or one of the best) 46" Pannels out there right now? Doesnt matter if its lcd/led/plasma. Only asking this because I feel 50" might be too big for my sitting distance. I would be sitting around 2.8m from the screen.
Sorry to keep asking questions. Actually going back to the shops tomorrow. Just wish they had catolgues so I dont have to keep going online everytime a new model comes into play.
Jaxson: I think it's a bad time to be buying a good main TV.
3D is rather pointless now given the complete lack of content and no immediate signs of any 3D broadcasting. However, it is the future and it's one of those things where if the price is similar, it would be silly not to at least consider it. Currently 3D appears to be another $1,500 or so premium? (I can't really say).
I'd almost be looking at a cheaper 2D set for the next few years and 3D after that, rather than a very expensive 2D set. But that's just my 2c.
Personally, I used to be a big Sony Fanboi, right back to the days of Beta VCRs. I now avoid Sony products like the plague, right across the board - they still want a premium price for product that is distinctly second-tier in a lot of cases, quality has slipped a lot, they have a mania for proprietary formats/connectors/standards, overcharge ludicrously in perpherals, and seem to have a deep-seated contempt for their customers. Plus, their anti-consumer lobbying, on their own and as part of the MPAA/RIAA etc means that I have another reason to avoid giving them my money.
