Have you ever bought something so wonderful that you had to tell the whole world why it's so great? Or conversely, have you ever brought something so awful that you felt the dutyful urge to tell the whole world why it's so lame?
This thread is for people who like debates, arguments and controversy. We need these things because without them, there's no conflict: no conflict equals no animation, and no animation equals no life. So come on people... exercise those democratic rights (while you still have some)!
I'm going to kick off this thread by adding my reasons as to why you should not buy an LCD TV. And yes, I think Plasmas are way better. If you think otherwise, challenge me here!
Reasons not to buy an LCD TV:
1. Colour accuracy depends on viewing angle.
2. Kids, pens, and a fragile panel doesn't mix... need I say more?
But I'm going to anyway so... 3. Slooooow response time (around 8ms as opposed to 0.001ms from plasma panels). Don't believe me? Try dragging a dialog box at speed on a TFT or laptop monitor and see if you can still read that text... go on!
4. Silly prices beyond 37"
5. There's a reasonable chance of buying one with some perminently lit or unlit pixels... and if they don't reach a given minimum, your manufacturer won't replace it.
6. Many brands cheatedly have their panels made by other manufacturers... isn't that right, Sony?
7. Input lag when you play games due to questionable picture processing.
8. The backlight goes after about 60,000 hours use.
And don't forget, this thread is also open to reasons for and against buying things of your choice! They don't have to based on mine.
