Like most plasmas, it is forced to run an auto brightness feature (ABL) during very bright scenes, and hockey is ruined because of it. (The screen flickers as the camera pans across the ice ALL THE TIME)

It really is a great TV, but since watching the Rangers is a big part of my TV viewing, I need a quality TV to do the job.

I have my eye on a 50 inch Sony LED (KDL-50R550A). Since I can't be throwing money at new TVs every year, I only want to spend <$1000. Ideally it's also 3D and Smart Capable (that Sony I'm looking at is both)

Before i go for the Sony, does anyone have any recommendations?

50 inch or less LED where Ranger games look great.

I have a 50 inch Panasonic Vierra that I use for Gaming and Hockey. Never noticed that problem. I think its just Samsungs Plasmas. Truthfully I would never get an LED or LCD. You can't beat the 600HZ refresh rate of Plasma compared to the 120 or 240 of LED.
