Looking at the specifications of many LCD and Plasma HDTV sets. The important specifications look misleading.
Contrast ratio is one.
Another and probably even more misleading is claimed picture resolution.
They always seem to state the resolution of a static picture. TV sets are generally used for moving pictures. LCD's are slow and, did you know that an 1080p rated LCD panel may only have 300 lines of moving picture resolution for fast moving scenes?
I noticed that Panasonic have made a move to state moving picture resolution for their new PZ81 range of Plasma TV's. Maybe because Plasma is fast and doesn't have problems with moving picture resolution?
Do you think that other manufacturers should start to disclose meaningful specifications for their HDTV's?
