So I’m in the market for a new fancy big TV (I'm thinking around 70"). The reason I’m buying a new one is that my current 20-year-old TV has a busload of things burned into the screen from years of gaming. I have meters in all four corners. I have the opening screen to the original Nintendo and (I think) the PSX. I have random ghosts of things that I don’t know what they are. I am really bad about passing out in front of the TV with my game paused. So, I want to buy a new TV, but I never want this to happen to me again. Anyone know what kind of TV won’t do this? I asked Google and it gave me this, is this a good thing: http://www.dlp.com

Ask this board they know their shit: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/forumdisplay.php?f=9

I can't stand DLP but I don't know how it is for just gaming. DLP has horrible viewing angle and rainbow effect. Plus you have to replace bulbs every so often. I have a Panasonic plasma and it is awesome for both gaming and TV. Again, go that forum I posted and ask.

What is your budget to start with? Go to the stores once you have a few models in mind and LOOK at them. Do NOT buy online! and try to avoid places like Worst Buy.

thanks for the hookup about DLP tvs and that board, will go check it out. DLP seem to be best bang for buck from where I am standing.

It is the cheapest but you get what you pay for. Limited viewing angle and costly bulbs to replace and added ranbow effect some people experience.

Research carefully is all I can offer you. I'd go with the new SXRD or even a good LCD before a DLP if you can't afford a good plasma setup. Bigger is not always better, except in penis size. :beer:

How much is your budget? If you have $3000+ and a dark room you could get a projector. You can get a massive screen with them, around 100 inches.

They don't make an LCD TV bigger than 65inches( i just looked at 65inch TV costs as much as a new car) so you have a choice between a projector, plasma, DLP and projection TV's. I think DLP, like projection TV's get burn-in with games.

Projectors suck. You are better off with a DLP. I believe DLP offers the best protection against "burn in" but again you lose so much. The burn in hype with plasma is just that. I and others I know with a plasmas have no burn in issues at ALL. Just a wonderfull clear picture :) The XBOX 360 looks so nice.

If you are dead set on bigger is better than your choices are slim right now unless you have 10gs for a 61 inch plamsa. 50 inch plasmas can be had for around 4gs +/-

But like I said go look at them for a while in the stores, different stores because they all have different settings. You will see what I mean about the DLP viewing angle.

I was thinkign about projector but i would have to pay for the projector and then pay for the contractor to knock out a wall, lol, as for as plasma I heard there shelf life isn't that long, I think I am going to go with DLP I saw a good deal for 61in samsung DLP for 3200 online, that seems good to me.
