Early reports suggest that 2010 Samsung Plasmas may have inferior black levels to the 2009 models, especially the 3D models. If this turns out to be true itís a big step in the wrong direction.
That's why I'm waiting for a review on a U.S. PN**C8000 plasma which supposedly is closer to our PS**C7000 model.
Some people in this thread, http://www.avsforum.....php?p=18438751
are disappointed with the black level of the PN50C7000 model.
Also, does anyone know for sure that we are not getting a PS**C8000 later in the year?
I'm wondering now if the reason why Samsung have aggressive pricing and a generous bonus scheme so soon after launch is partially because they know their 3D plasmas are inferior to Panasonic's?
I wish Panasonic had the 2D->3D conversion because I have seen it in action (a hi-def soccer match and a bluray concert) and although it's not great, I still like it and I think it would be a nice gimmick for gaming on an xbox360 console. I haven't seen full on 3D on a hdtv yet.
I'm mostly interested in 3D and 2D->3D viewing for gaming. I would probably watch the occasional movie in 3D but I'm not hyped up about it.
Another question I have is, does 3D gaming produce more input lag?
