Re: What brand of TV do you prefer for picture quality?

Sony, Samsung and LG are the big brands.

Try go with LED, its superior to LCD and Plasma. Make sure its 1080p, has plenty of HDMI's, and any kind of Dolby Pro Logic setup included is a plus.

Also, make sure you are definitely feeding it HD sources. WWE for example only broadcast in 720p and 1080i, and most people would rather go with 720p.

That's a good point 1080p is superior to 1080i. Especially if you're watching movies.

If you are putting your computer through it and want 1920/1080p res, you'll need to use scaling options to get rid of the ugly black bars on the side of the screen.

Also check out the refresh rate of the tv, as the higher is better, you'll want at the very least 60hz if not higher.

You want at least 100Hz if you're going to be playing video games and watching a lot of sport. It makes a massive difference.

P will always be better than I. The p stands for progressive, and I stands for Interlaced. Interlaced is an OLLLLLD way of generating a picture on a screen, progressive is obviously the new way to process the image onto the screen. It's a shame that most networks still only broadcast in 720p though. Something about it being too expensive to broadcast in 1080p right now.

Edit: also, Evo I dont particularly like the 100+ Hz televisions for watching sports. Some of the action gets choppy on my father's brand new 120Hz LG television when I'm watching a sport. But for video games, those TVs are awesome

LED tvs are actually LCD tvs, true LED tvs do not exist. They are just a little cheaper. I'd say you're better off getting a 720p TV as most games and television shows are broadcasted that way. I payed $500 for a LG 720p plasma over a year ago and I love it. Absolutely no issues and the picture is great and very vibrant and rich.

What kind of TV do you old school gamers use for your retro games? I'm thinking about getting a Sony PVM tube TV since it's supposed to look really good with older games.

Personally, I just use emulators to run the old games. Then just pick up a decent gamepad / 360 controller and download the romsets.

If you absolutely have to use consoles then yeah, you'll have to pick up an old CRT, as the old games look terrible on a lcd, especially the ones that use RF. The main disadvantages to it are the crt's and the consoles and the games take up a lot of space, not to mention all the cables everywhere. But if you're a traditionalist I guess that's the only way to go. Should be able to pick up an old set cheap second hand as they are practically giving them away now.

Re: What brand of TV do you prefer for picture quality?

I agree with Bully on the emulators, but run them on my DS where ever I want vs a computer.

I do enjoy my LG small screen tv in my room.
