    im looking for the best picture on a 50-55" tv out there for 2d mode..I want you can actually get a hold of unlike the godlike pioneer elite.If the which ever model that has best picture does 3d as that is fine i will just not use the 3d as it makes me nauseous. as i look through reviews almost every set i like seems to have some issue.ie terrible motion blurr.. blooming or the model doesnt last very long in general. Some things im looking for..

    Almost true blacks
    very little jittering/motion blur
    Vivid/ true colors
    lasts more then a year
    descent off angle viewing (1 or 2 seats off dead center)
    good anti glare (doesnt have to be perfect)
    true 1080p /24

    you know all the things that make a good tv...
    any help would be amazing.. i apologize if this sounds like a rant

    ps: if i can find the pioneer PRO-111FD or the closest thing to it id be happy (doesnt have to be a plasma)

    Any top of the line plasma is going to fulfill most, if not all, of your criteria. Don't bother looking at any LCDs. There are several options with anti-glare screens. Most likely it will be a choice between Samsung and Panasonic (don't leave out the Premier pro model).

    Plasmas put out sufficient light for most residential environments. LCDs can be brighter but would only be necessary in extreme circumstances. Most people don't care to view critical programming (movies, etc.) in extra bright conditions anyway. High ambient light will seriously contaminate any video image, regardless of display type (even those outdoor true LED displays- ruins dark areas of the picture). There is no completely effective anti-glare treatment anyway. Such coatings only diffuse the reflections into a haze, rather than eliminate them. No TV made can compete with high ambient light. There will always be deleterious effects upon the picture. Video displays will always look better in low light.

    Where did you get the information about the Panasonic having motion blur?

    There was no mention of motion blur in the review. They did mention that the video processor had some motion artifacts, which is not the same thing. I don't care much for their review methods, opinions, or conclusions. Perhaps you can find a better review.

    VT25 is the creme of the crop this year, it get's my vote over the Samsung. I'd not put much stock in their reviews, because they can't even get proper tv settings right.

     

    As far as light output, My 2010 S2 can make me squint at 75 contrast, so it's got plenty left. I think someone got around 55fl's outta the S2. The newer Neo PDP plasmas from Panasonic put out good light, and use less energy.

    They have a 4.9 out of 5 on google from 198 buyer reviews.

     

    This one is a little more, but has 4.8 out of 5 on 357 reviews.

    i feel kinda dumb asking this but what is the difference between the pioneer pro 111fd and the pro 101fd? is it the same screen just one doesnt have a tuner and lacks speakers? if soo thatd work just great because i would be useing an hd cable box and surround sound system anyway and would never use the onboard tuner or speakers

    http://www.bestbuypcs.com/pioneer-kuro-pro-101fd-best-price.html

    if theres a difference please let me know... sorry if im off a bit im farly new to tv world (but not brand new)

    1) TV Tuner
    2) Speakers
    3) Pedestal stand

     

    The 101 is strictly a monitor.

    I have purchased from justbuy and their reviews and service are/were rock solid. I spoke to a specialist there named Eric and he had a very knowledgeable answer for all of my concerns.
