Plasma Died... and Welcome LG C1 OLED
« on: July 05, 2022, 10:56:55 AM »
Super Sad face... my old 50PK750 LG Plasma died.  Super Sad face.  IT had pretty awesome colors and motion.  Over the last year and a half, there was an issue with a 2 inch vertical strip in the middle of the tv.  It finally kicked the curb.  I tried a few things to troubleshoot it, but couldn't find an easy solution.

So... I gave up the tv and moved to an LG C1 OLED 48"... at a really great price I might add.  I wanted a slightly smaller screen for FPS games.  For some reason, the 50" was a bit hard to keep track of motion edge-to-edge.  I will say, this TV is pretty cool.   However, I happened to notice the OLED stutter.  I turned on trumotion and worked with the settings, but it's still slightly noticeable.   I still really like the tv... it really does have a wonderful looking screen.   @SpartanEvolved mentioned it... and it's a great buy.

I really wasn't ready to give up the plasma yet.  @targetrasp and I were talking about this happening... and dangit... it happened.   The old tv still had component (etc)... for some of the old consoles. I don't think any new tvs have that anymore.  Time to move on though!

Sad to hear this. I know when my CRT gave out it was a sad day. Retro gaming has not been the same since. I really miss scan lines.

As dumb as it sounds, I've been through a lot with that TV in place lol.  Lots of great gaming and times as well.   

@Grindspine and I had a ton of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 hours.  @SpartanEvolved and @mastermario had a ton of gaming time as well.   I've also played a ton remotely with others lol  ;D
