Are LCD tvs good for gaming?

14 replies 2 views Edited Jan 10, 2007
    How is the pixel response time on LCD TVs?  I heard that older ones don't fair so well and that there is alot of pixelation and ghosting. 

Each TV technolog has it pros and cons.  But what is truly the best technology for gaming?  DLP? LCD? Plasma?

i have a 42'' DLP projection its really nice and u can put these settings on it so the pixel response time is perfect

if i were u i would buy a DLP cause there the best TV's except for the Plasma tv's but Plasma Tv's break all the time cause they over heat then the pixels and other stuff get damaged and + DLP's are alot cheaper

If it weren't for the fact that DLP tvs are deep (not flat) and have such HORRIBLE viewing angles (step a few feet to the side or up/down and you cant see a thing) I would actualy like them, the picture is really good when you are lined up with the screen correctly Smiley Tongue

Pixel response time depends on your TV, you can go anywhere from like 22ms, to 4ms.....
