Looking for a Gaming TV

Recommended Posts

After my successful build of my PC a few months back with the help of Neowin, I'm back to get some help about TVs. I've done quite a bit of reading on the AVS forums about TVs, and I need a bit of help narrowing down my selections.

I do have some requirements for TVs: 37-47", less than 5ms response time, 1080p. I'm looking to spend around 800 Canadian max, so 3D isn't necessary.

I do have some TVs that I have scoped out beforehand:

LG 42" Class 1080p LCD TV (42LK520) - 598

Samsung 46" 1080p 120Hz LCD Smart TV (LN46D630) - 749

Sony BRAVIA 40" 1080p 120Hz LED Smart TV (KDL40EX621) - 749

I'm not completely sold on any of these choices so I'd appreciate any other suggestions.

Thanks a lot!

just from personal opinion I'd go with the 46" Samsung that's in your list

Note that Samsung TVs have only one HDMI input that is suitable for PC display, and that must be properly named(!) for a correct display. Otherwise, the TV will alter the colors displayed, sometimes very terribly.

Some discussion in English here:


And some in German, but with test pictures showcasing the undesired effects here:


This seems to happen with _all_ Samsung TVs.
