  • What TV PQ test DVDs to buy for today's panel PQ?

    Widgets Magazine
    Now 3D TVs & LED are shelf rivals with LCD & plasma, what test DVDs & BDs are best for testing & fine-setting up all 4 kinds of screen.

    I have a plasma & CRT at present, but am looking at a LED & 3D as options. Last reviews I read, a few years ago, the latter 2 were not used in disc tests.

    Maybe this could work? Found it from here.
    Time never betrays dreams. But on the flip side, dreams must not betray time.

      Does animation favor LCD or Plasma? Googling doesn't really bring up much info & LCD's have matured to compete with Plasma in PQ. My current TV is a Sony XBR960, but I'd like something bigger; thinking of 50" Panasonic ST50.

        My main TV is plasma 42", computer monitor is LED 24", so can't comment size for size between the 2. I've read LCD is better for SD but plasma is better for HD.

        I'm considering LED, but now there's the choice of edge lighting (advantage = thinner screen) or array LEDs.

          I think full array is preferred but much more expensive. I can't see the thinness of edge-lit LCD's being of any real advantage other then looks from the side. I'm considering plasma because I want the best PQ bang per buck & it seems an equivalent LCD would cost double a comparable plasma. But if anime looks better with LCD's then I'd have to reconsider.

            I used AVSHD 709. It's designed for flat panel HD TVs, and it's a lot more loaded with test patterns and calibration tools than any retail disc. It's also a little more involved to use.

            The benefit is that it is a free download. You need a DVD burner (or a Blu-ray Burner) and a Blu-ray player that plays AVCHD files from DVD, or BD-R media
