Default Samsung as my tv

I wanted a new tv that would sorta give the illusion of hd and make my xbox360 Wii and PS3 games look pretty good.

Im thinking of going for this

HERE

I know I wont get true hd with it because its to small but will it still make the console games look really sharp?

I don't think that console gaming would work good on an LCD TV, wouldn't ghosting appear? I always thought CRT TV's were the way to go.


BTW, that's pricey. I guess it's the name brand.

well, fast moving images on a television, it might ghost...

I don't know the response time...

Just don't use S-Video for gaming, you heard the reviewer.

I'm sure you're using components anyways.


EDIT:
It should be okay for gaming. It's got 8MS response time. But i still think that a CRT TV would work better.

Those are the types of connections it supports. Put them in Google Image search.

Yeah, just totally ignore what talldude123 said.

This HDTV has 8ms response time, which is perfectly fine for games...

And there are only like 4 CRT HDTVs ...

LCD ARE OKAY FOR GAMING. CRTS ARE 5 FEET DEEP AND WEIGH 800lbs.
