Re: Best TV for gaming/PS4?

Well, I've sold my monitor... so dunno whether to wait a month or get one now.

JL said they won't pricematch TotalDigital tho - cos it is not local to me never heard them say that before.

Re: Best TV for gaming/PS4?

They say they won't price match because TD won't deliver that tv (the free warranty offer is instore only) and because JL don't offer that TV as an instore purchase (delivery only) so it is not like for like

I added about 15 TVs to the basket on JL and NONE of them are available to collect in store. Looks like they only deliver TVs now, and use it to get around price these sorts of price matches.

They did say I could contact the Birmingham store to see if they would price match tho.

I have decided to use my 27" monitor and get the W653 instead. I think a 42" TV would be too big to use as a computer display, and this means I can have the TV on in the background as well. Or I might just use the PS4 with this monitor (tho I know input lag isn't great on this model) and then see if the TVs come down in price later on or next year...

Re: Best TV for gaming/PS4?

Had another look at teles today.

Really like the Samsung F7000, but it's a lot more than I want to spend.

I'm also thinking 42" is going to be too big to double up as a monitor, and I really like the Sony 32W654. But still like the 42" version as well. 805 was very nice as well.

I might just order 3 from John Lewis and then send back two after deciding which one I like best

Not fussed on the plasmas tbh, there's something about them that I just don't like. The LCDs (to me anyway) look sharper and more vibrant, more 'solid' and don't seem to flicker. Personal taste trumps I guess.

Re: Best TV for gaming/PS4?

Panasonic confirms they are ending manufacturing plasma TVs..

Quote:
Panasonic Corporation today announced that in order to create a business structure that can respond to changes in the business environment and to accelerate the growth strategy of the company, the company will end the production of plasma display panels (PDP) in December 2013, and stop business operations at the Amagasaki P3 Factory (production currently stopped), the Amagasaki P5 Factory (production currently suspended), and the Amagasaki P4 Factory, which is currently operating, by the end of March 2014.

In the display panel business, Panasonic has been promoting the development of non-TV applications and carried out various restructuring measures, such as reduction of fixed costs, for both PDP and LCD panels. Through further fundamental business restructuring, the company is aiming to optimize the business and focus its management resources.

Since 2000, Panasonic has promoted its PDP business and led the global flat panel display market with its strategy of utilizing PDP for large displays and LCD for small- and medium-sized displays.

However, with the rapid development of large-screen LCDs, and facing the severe price competition in the global market brought on by the Lehman Shock in September 2008, the company consolidated production in the Amagasaki P4 Factory, made a shift towards commercial applications and worked to improve the earnings of the business.

Until now, due to the superiority of the picture, Panasonic’s PDPs have received high appraisal and there has been firm demand from customers worldwide. However, due to rapid, drastic changes in the business environment and a declining demand for PDP in the flat panel display market, it was judged that continuing the business would be difficult and a decision was made to stop production.

The company will end sales of plasma TVs for consumer use and PDP related products for commercial use, such as Interactive Plasma Displays, with the products for FY 2014 (ending March 31, 2014). However, by selecting display panels that are most suitable for each product for both consumer and commercial use, Panasonic will work to develop and provide appealing products which meet the demands of customers, and will aim towards new development of its visual and display businesses.
