Problem with new Panasonic Plasma Television in Home Theater Posted January 17, 2010 I have always noticed that some channels have better HD picture for their football broadcasts than some other stations. I just couldn't get comfortable with the picture quality, color, or the lack of brightness. Plasmas are supposed to lose brightness over time so I couldn't imagine haw dark it would be after 3-4 years if I had it maxed out with its brightness right now! My 4 year old Toshiba is still looking great at about 60/100 on the brightness and contrast scale. That TV may last another 20 years! So, I will be retuning the TV tomorrow and heading to Sears to get either an LG or a Samsung LED TV. I was originally looing to get the LG or Suamsung 50" Plasma but I am sold on the picture of the LEDs. They just appear to have greater contrast to me. Although they didn't have the game on any of the LEDs, I was told they look great on the LED. If they are lying to me then they will get a TV returned to them before my card has a chance to clear! So, does anyone have any experience with eithe rthe Samsung or LG LED TVs?
