Which HDTV brand delivers the best quality around 46-52"?

Marios I

Philips, Sony, Samsung, which one.

It would be between 46" and 52"

If you want quality, Sony Bravia W series, A3000 or XBR4 series is the best on the market presently. They all can produce "Deep Color" (utilizing HDMI 1.3) which increases the amount of colors displayed from millions to billions giving you a much more realistic picture. They also incorporate 120Hz technology and motion enhancement, somewhat eliminating "motion blur" that is prevalent on most LCD televisions, while this technology does not completely eliminate motion blur it does a very good job of reducing it.

Prices are falling and while the XBR4 is presently still a bit high ($2500-$3500) the A3000 and W series can be had for much lower prices.

HDTV brand question?


I was out shopping and needed a new TV and I wanted an HDTV for when I switch over. I found a Vizio 32" Widescreen LCD HD for $420. I made the decision quick because there was only 1 left and I thought it was a real good price. Just wondering how good Vizio is? Was that a good deal? How does it compare to Sony and Samsung?

Vizio has a reasonable quality for the price you pay; it's a bit behind Sony but not with very much specially when you know how much you paid for it. Has lots of connections and a pretty clear and crisp picture; works pretty well in very light rooms. Not great when it comes about black but if you are not looking for miracles for this money you should think that you've got a good deal. Enjoy it!

Which TV I should buy?

Patrik Fen

Hey guys,

I want to buy a TV in the near future but I have no clue which one... I want the TV for gaming (Xbox) and movies mainly... So it has to be Full HD, low input lag, great contrast and refresh rate. I don't really care about the Smart TV capabilities.

But I really have no clue which one should I pick... Can I have your opinions? Can you recommend me specific type or at least a brand? I would be glad if the pricepoint would not exceed 1000eur/850gpb/1300usd



Which is best led tv in 24 inch?


The screen size is not so important; it is the brand and model numbers that you need to look at.

does a LG 47LW5300 47-Inch 1080p 120Hz Cinema 3D LED-LCD HDTV have a pc port?


and anyother ports like hdmi usb things of that sorce

No, LG is just an descent quality TV manufacturer. They have a high repair rate. I would prefer Samsung over LG because of its LED and picture quality. Go for the top of the line TVs for 2011, including the UN46d7000 or UN46d8000. These are the best sets in the market today, including 3D as well.

Tube TV vs 1080p HDTV?


Comparing the two tv's in this scenario.

TV#1 2002 Model Flat Tube 60Hz 27" Screen
TV#2 2011 3D Ready 1080p 120Hz 63" Screen

Just for giggles I plugged in the RCA cables (Red, White, Yellow) to my new tv to play the PS3. Resolution is set to a maximum of 480p for these cables. Picture quality is terrible! Rainbow effect & nothing looks good. But, when hooked up to the old school tv same method, looks great!

Now normally I do run the latest 1.4 HDMI cables & use the 3D glasses & all that good stuff, but this was just for my own amusement, now that i've seen the difference, I want to know.....why......

So the question???? Why, does an advanced piece of technology not look nearly as good under these circumstances as the old school tv which looks great?

The old school TV is designed for the 480 that the composite cable gives it. Your new TV has to artificially increase the resolution of the TV from 480 lines to 1080 lines. Some TV's do a better job doing this than others.

Which HDTV is better for gaming, Plasma or LED LCD? (Best Picture)?


Samsung 55" 8 series LED LCD TV is by far the best picture I have witnessed myself. However, I keep reading reviews that plasmas offer better pictures for movies. Can someone that has actually personally seen these TV's tell me which one has the better overall picture quality?

It's all about numbers!

LED LCD's and Plasma's have the highest contrast ratios resulting in the blackest blacks, whitest whites and the most vivid and rich looking colors! But that's were their similarities end!

Plasma's also have the fastest pixel response times(.001ms) as well as the fastest refresh rates(600hz), making them perfect for fast motion content like sports, movies and gaming! LED LCD's are still limited by LCD's inherent technology flaw...slower response times(2ms) and refresh rates(240hz)! This doesn't mean they're terrible at fast motion content, it just means Plasma's are better at reproducing it then LED LCD's! Plasma's have smoother picture motion!

Another difference between the two is energy consumption. LED LCD's use about 40% less energy then Standard LCD's and Plasma's! Which is good if you're into the whole eco-friendly thing! Keep in mind however, LED LCD's are also the most expensive HDTV on the market right now! So you have to ask yourself, Is it worth saving $25/year for a TV that costs $3,000 more? You'd need to have the TV for 10 years for it to pay for itself!

When it comes to gaming...dollar for dollar...Plasma is best! It's facts, not opinion here!!! See this:

Which has better picture quality? LED LCD HDTV or LCD HDTV?

Isaac P

Which has the best picture quality? Is there a marginal difference between the two in terms of picture quality besides dimness? I know that the LED is pretty expensive but more energy efficient, but i want to get the best picture quality when i get my first HDTV next week. I've narrowed it down between these two tv's.
Vizio 42" Class 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV, SV420M


Samsung - 40" Class / 1080p / 120Hz / LED-LCD HDTV

I would go to a store that has both and compare them side by side. You should see that the LED has a much better picture using whole screen LED backlighting rather than perimeter CCFL backlighting which significantly raises the cost.

what LED hdtv should I buy to avoid noticing any Lag whatsover?


Hi I have 2 Vizio HDTV. One is an LED and it is a 120 HZ and it is a 47 inch and the other is an LCD 47 inch one and also 120 hz. Now I am gonna give you a great example. You know for anyone who watches NBC Sunday Night Football and they go to the replay and the NBC Logo comes up to show the replay and after they show the replay the NBC Logs comes up again to go back to Live TV, well this is a great example because I notice somewhat of a lag when that happens and I see like a ghosting effect I guess and I also notice the pixels when that happens. It happens on other channels too but I notice it more on NBC Sunday Night Football. I have HD Directv with HDMI cable. So that isn't the problem. It is crazy because the other night I also watched the game on NFL Game Rewind app on the IPAD MINI and I didn't notice any lag whatsoever during the game. Is this lag or ghosting or whatever you want to call it caused by the response time of the TV or is it caused by the Refresh rate of the TV. I mean both of my Vizio TV's are doing the same thing and I even have a 3rd Sony 60 hz tv and it does it on that as well. So my questions are as follows:

1)Is the Lag caused by the Response Time or the Refresh Rate or what exactly?

2)Why is it on the IPAD Mini I didn't notice the lag?

3)I want the images to be crisp without any lag or ghosting or anything like that. What specifications on the TV should I look for?

4)For a 2013 say tv between a 30 to 39 inch what exact tv model do I look at to not see any lag etc?

5)How about a 40 to 50 inch TV which model should I look at?

6)Do I buy instead a monitor that is like 27 inch or 32 inch with an hdmi with a response time of say 1 ms. Please let me know.

Please answer each of my above 6 questions in details. Thanks.
For the Panasonic Plasma I should get a 1080P right rather than a 720P. The only problem that I have with Plasmas is that the picture is way too dim compared to the LED or LCD TV and I like a picture that is very bright. Please help. Thanks.

It's just a lag based on the distance of the TV and box from the satellite and just the broadcast in general. One of my family members had the same issue they have a 20 inch LED tv in their bedroom and a 32 inch LED tv in there living room. You can hear the TV's echo each other when on the same channel. Next the reason you didn't notice any lag on the iPad Mini is because it wasn't a live stream of it, it was a replay of what happened. So it's not looking for the live feed of the game over the internet, it's downloading it to the iPad's temporary memory just so it can play it through. This really isn't the TV at all VIZIO TV's are great options. This goes back to just DirecTV's ability to get the live video to the satellites and then to TV's across the US mainly. The only option would be to get a 240 Hz or 480 Hz HDTV but I really don't recommend that because those are mainly LCD TV's and LCD is probably the last option you want for a TV. LED is the best quality for a TV and LCD is better for a computer screen image. Overall for TV screen sizes you asked. The Best options are Samsung with there Smart HDTV's, Sharp's new IGZO display HDTV's, then Samsung is always reliable choice for HDTV's

Which is the best 32 inch led tv in india 2013?


Hi guyzz!!

i am planning to buy a 32 inch led tv for my new home.
My priorities are :
full hd led tv (1920x1080p)
Decent motion clarity index
sharp and good quality pictures ofcourse.....
smart tv (optional)
stylish with a slim frame

went to a local store he inclined me towards lg32ls series i.e lg 32ls4600 and 32ls5700
Panasonic TH-L32E5D0
sony bravia 32 ex550

i personally like lg 32ls5700
which one should i consider.....
any other options.....

any help will be appreciated :)

Hi christina, LG WRman Sherlock here,

First of all, my recommendation would be too mention your budget range to get the best opinions possible. Now looking at the factors you have listed, the 32LS5700 would be a good choice.

However, if you have a flexible budget then I would suggest you to look at the 32LM6200 as well. The TV is a full HD LED TV with theater-like passive 3D and easy to use Smart TV functions. It has a Motion Clarity index of 400 which will be perfect for fast moving visuals. And the sleek design with the ribbon stand is definitely the cherry on top. Check this link for detailed information for this TV.

LG WRman Sherlock out!

N64 video Quality on HDTV?


I have an n64 hooked up with an 42" HDTV with RGB cables and the video wasn't like it used to be. Which made sense to me because of the resolution. I changed the view of the screen to make it non widescreen which helped quite a bit but not 100% so would the following make a difference..

-connecting by using S-video
-adding ram expansion, I heard it increases the resolution but does it help with the older games at all? like Mario 64
-any other ideas to make the quality better besides emulating?

None of that will make any difference. You're seeing the same quality of the game's visuals, but the better screen (larger, probably LCD or plasma compared to an old CRT) is making the flaws more obvious.

HDTV quality disappoint?


Recently purchased a Polaroid 32 inch LCD HDTV, and I was very disappointed in the way it looked, plugged in and showing analog channels, and quality viewing in general. Is this normal, or should I really buy an HDMI cable, HD cable box, to truly view it as HDTV?

It's normal.

The problem with HDTVs are that the quality is low for SD signals and high for HD signals. Unfortunately, you have to deal with it until you upgrade to HD cable or satellite service.

Upgrading your TV service to digital and connect with an HDMI will cable will help slightly.

HDTV is high resolution. SD signals have 2.5 less resolution, therefore the TV has to upscale the image. Upscaling causes fuzzy edges, video artifacts and video noise. HDTV by design scale all images to the native resolution of the HDTV, either 1280x720 or 1920x1080.

Playstation 4 question ?


Does the ps4 have the av color wires? Or u need hdmi in order to use it?

It will only support HDMI now. Some recent games on the PS3 actually had visual problems because of people who were still using composite cables. DarkSiders 2 and Skyrim come to mind.

You'll need to get your hands on a HDTV and some cables. I recommend getting a T.V. no bigger than 32" and get your HDMI cable off of Amazon since they have cables available for as little as $2 (and all HDMi cables do the same thing, no matter the price).

Use this interactive model of the PS4, and look at the back. You'll see that there's only HDMI and nothing on other video output cables.

What do the good people of Yahoo Answers think?

It is definitely something i wish I could afford...The only problem I see here is that the power supply might not be enough for both those video cards. The 680 needs at least 550w and the 640 needs at 350w so, you need a better power supply for it. Other than's a really good computer with tons of stuff.
