I want to get a new TV, I have a 5 year old Samsung Plasma 42 inch TV that is 720. I want to move up to a 46 or a 50 and I want 1080 to get the most out of our HD cable and Blu-Ray. I am trying to decide between getting another Plasma or getting an LCD-LED tv. I am totally on the fence and I cannot make a decision. I have gone to our local Best Buy and looked at the TVs, the LCD-LEDs have such a clear crisp picture compared to the Plasma on display but it that just the calibration at the store? Are thy trying to push the LCD-LED tvs? The LED-LCD tv looks brighter as well, again is that just the calibration?
The TVs I am looking at are below, a Samsung LCD and a Panasonic Plasma. I have never owner a Panasonic TV before but I understand they are on par with the high end Pioneer Plasmas because Panasonic now has many of the Pioneer engineers working for them.
I want to get a TV but I cannot decide, any help anyone has will be greatly appreciated.
Samsung LCD-LED $1299
Panisonic Plasma $1099
