Help finding a HDTV

#1pm_videogamePosted 3/29/2013 10:00:10 AM
Hello

I really don't know anything about tvs so I thought I'd ask for some help.

I'm in the market for a HDTV because I'm tired of not being able to read what half of my games say because of my old low-def tv. (I'm not joking when I say that half of my PS3 games are illegible because of this)

The only things I care about are good picture quality and no input lag (because input lag is apparently a big problem with HDTVs)

The price doesn't matter too much, but I'd prefer nothing over $1000.

The tv I have now is pretty big (no idea what the actual size is) so I'd prefer something big as well.

The main reason I'm asking is because I'm not sure of how different a Plasma, LED, or HD TV are from each other and which would be better for PS3 gaming.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Honestly, input lag is really not that much of a problem. I've owned a few Samsung LCDs and never had any issues with input lag. If it really bothers you though, most televisions come with a game mode that will reduce input lag at the expense of picture quality (it turns off a lot of the extra features). I don't have any specific recommendations, but keep in mind that you usually get what you pay for.

That should be a good resource.
