Really your eyes are the best judge! Everything else is ball...yup I would also want to know the betterness of plasma over lcd.
If sales are the criteria then wow Maruti 800 is the best car in the world and too bad I don't own one. And hey Aston Martin and Bugatti Veyron don't sell as much so they must be really bad cars. Also, too bad I spent a bomb on a Honda CBR, the local Hero Honda is number 1 in sales so obviously better than the imported Honda CBR.
Unfortunately people don't have eyes. TVs are purchased for free 50 DVD packs and/or a free DVDP thrown in, or a free HDMI cable. Or else as everyone knows the dealer margins and incentives are given most by which Korean brands and hence their products are pushed as the best by the salesmen who really cannot tell you what HDMI stands for. I mean it. Try to buy a TV only from a guy who can tell you what HDMI stands for and let's see how many places really qualify to sell you a TV. I've personally asked many what does HDMI mean/stand for and 99% of the salesmen who told me XXX Korean company makes the best LCD panel could not tell me what HDMI stood for. Yet the guy could rattle off so many facts on why that particular brand selling LCDs was the best. Finally, those with eyes will go with the PV8 no matter what (as many have on this very forum) or a Sammy plasma 410/450, but mind you a plasma either ways. And even more so those with eyes and deep pockets will go for Sony X series (yeah they are better than plasmas, but only because the premier plasma range and Full HD plasmas like the Pioneer Kuro are not sold in India). So those with eyes and deep pockets will go with Sony X series (LCD), those with eyes and not so deep pockets will go with Panasonic PV8, Samsung 410/450 (plasma), and those with very deep pockets will go for Pioneer Kuro (plasma). I don't want to mention what those without eyes but with deep pockets and without deep pockets will go for. Let's leave it at that.
Not LCD bashing and no offense to anyone so PEACE TO ALL!!!
