Hugh, I am generalizing on response times of LCD. It seems that 3-4 years ago most were 8ms and higher. Now, I see a lot of 5-6ms which is closer to most of the plasma or RPTV's with 4ms.
I always liked the pic of plasma better than LCD and found LCD to be at times flat, grainy or have some ghosting with hockey and other fast sports. I liked that plasma seemed bright, punchy, brilliant. But I saw a friend with a Samsung A650? LCD and was impressed with its picture. I just wondered how LCD and plasma compared for sports viewing now.
