projection tv vs hdtv

i was just wondering....i play on a 45" projection type tv. i have heard that they dont develop a picture as fast as crt or lcd/plasma tv's.

i was thinking of picking up a hdtv of craigslist or something.

what do you guys think? i know my skills are somewhat lacking, but is my equipment not helping? 

thanks!!

Projection TVs use various display methods - LCD, CRT, and DLP being the most common. There's nothing inherently bad about any of the three for gaming.



I use a Sony KDF-42WE655 rear projection LCD TV with my 360. It works fine. See if your TV has a Game mode. That may help if the TV's doing video processing on the incoming signal. Also, see if it supports 1080p. Chances are if it doesn't support 1080p, it's not a 1080p TV. Try changing the 360 to 720p mode. That may help as well.

If it's that old it's probably a CRT rear projection. It's generating a picture as fast as any CRT does. CRTs are generally considered to be the best display technology in terms of referesh rate, color saturation, etc. It's taken a long time for Plasma and LCD to catch up.

For gaming, the best choice is usually Plasma. it's the closest you'll get to CRT without buying a CRT.
