Flogging a Dead Horse - Small Plasma?
My wife has MS and can no longer access our basement family room. I wanted to upgrade the bedroom set from a 27 inch Toshiba CRT to a 32 inch LCD which will fit nicely on the dresser. I had narrowed choices down to a Samsung 3242H but then I started reading about "jet lag" on fast moving objects, especially sports. Carol is a sports nut (Murphy's Law at work here) and I watched a lot of sports for several Sundays at FS and BB. I kept thinking I shouldn't have had that last beer because the pix was certainly going in and out of focus. I became aware that the problem is the 8ms response time and a sales rep showed me a 32" set (Panasonic?) that had 120Hz instead of the 60Hz with a response time of 6ms. The 3-football rule was still in play and 3 or 4 hours of Sunday sports would drive us both insane (short drive by the way). I searched the internet for a 32 inch plasma but no such animal seems to exist, at least not in a name brand that I could trust. Are we SOL? Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated. I need the brownie points. sailmaker
