Hey guys.

I'm looking for a Full HD 1080P gaming TV for <£500 but I don't really know what to look for so I am hoping you guys could help me out. Not really sure on the size either since some say going higher than 40-45" sacrifices image quality, is that true? I would be happy with anything between 32-50".

Plasma vs LED/LCD confuses me, I hear LED/LCD have better brighter colours but Plasma have better darker colours :pfff: 

Anyway, hopefully someone here knows a lot about tv's!

Edit:Forgot to add; this will be for PS3 gaming and when the PS4 comes out it will be for that too (Sorry Xbox fans) and now and again I may use it for PC gaming, I will never use it for watching TV, not interested in TV.

Larger sizes only sacrifice quality if you sit too close.

Plasma has far better performance from a moving image standpoint(This "darkness" is not bad at all for movies), but also takes much more power and cost more. LCD is getting faster all the time.

LED/LCD are the same thing one is just lit with CFL tubes while the other has LED lighting. Some say LED lighting sacrifices color accuracy, but this should not effect a gaming tv. Full local dimming looks best as it allows darker blacks, but those cost way more.

It may be worth checking them out in the stores.

Sorry to not have a recommendation, just some general info.

You should also look for a TV with a Game mode because that mode turns off some of the enhancements that make videos look good at the cost of response time or add input lag(not what you want when gaming.).
