The resolution is 1024*768

To count a hd ready ( not even full hd ) you need to be at least 1280*768, most hd ready tv's are 1366*768.

Not gonna vote either way

To be classed as HD ready a Panel only needs to be able to display 720 lines.

so this is a HD Ready TV.

Most 42" 720p Plasma's run 1024x768 Res. Some of the best Plasma's around still (Pioneer Kuro's, Panny Px Viera's) run 1024x768

proving how little you know about TV and screen res.
quick call trading standards as loads of manufacturers are putting out stuff that isn't HD but is sold as!
its a worldwide scam!

This is a Plasma BOTH of your efforts are LCD - the only manufactuer making Full 1080p 42" Plasmas are Panasonic.;-)

Also sticking a 1080p sticker on a cheap TV is just a way of getting gullible folks to buy an inferior product to this.:whistling:
#15
The tv is impressive, i spent a while deciding which to get and the picture is alot clearer than the 1080p lcd efforts i was looking at... its thin also and has a razor frame which looks quality.

Definitely recommend this tv, has alot of great reviews online and on here too.
Bought it yesterday at argos on offer for 399 but its gone back up now to 580

Plasma is good under one condition, you forget about the power.
(That's why they stopped quoting it)
#20
How does this work then, as 1024x768 resolution is a 4:3 ratio.

As the TV is widescreen i would expect a native resolution of 16:9. Anyone care to explain this for me?

It's still 16:9, the resolution is 1024x768 because of the shape of the pixels on a plasma TV, they're rectangular I believe, hence the different resolution from an LCD.

No it just brings out people who don't have a clue about TV's and end up posting rubbish. Then everyone jumps in and corrects them and tells them off for being a tit. The same thing happens in EVERY TV Deal.

My advice to them - If you don't know what your talking about then don't post!! And If your unsure of something try Google before asking someone here.

Oh and OP should change the picture - that's an older model shown.

Anyway lets be clear:
[SIZE="4"]This TV is [/SIZE][SIZE="7"]HD Ready[/SIZE] :-D

Its 139 watts in use. (Source)

Also Plasma power consumption has improved a lot.

Chosen by random here is a 37" Sony Bravia LCD (One of the top sellers on Play.com)
It uses 105 watts (Source)

This 40" Sony Bravia (Also a play.com top seller) is 106 watts (source) and this model makes claims for being energy efficient.

Here is a 42" Toshiba which uses 144watts

This 42" Panasonic LCD uses 155watts

Here we can see that power consumption appears to be lower with this Plasma TV. BUT do remember that with Plasma the power consumption is dynamic so when watching darker footage the tv will use much less power unlike LCD's where the power draw is constant.

[SIZE="3"]So If your worried about power consumption choose Plasma[/SIZE] :whistling: (Yes, LED backlit TV's will be less but you will not find one for this sort of price)

Any one know of any sub £500 46" TV's preferably a decent brand? Full HD would be good but I doubt there's any chance of that at this price... :whistling:

Thanks.

Blimey, this is deep, go to shop, look at telly, if picture is good in your opinion, buy telly, dont worry about 1098 rectangular pixels or 738 sideways vertical resolutions or 140 watts of stereo sound versus power output, look at picture, look at price, happy, buy, easy.

second that. The an amazing amount of different types of pixel arrangements. Samsung often use pentile which ony has 2 sub pixels not 3.

What is your point? Specs aren't everything. American sports cars have big engines but get beaten easily by european and japanese sports cars with tiny engines in comparision.

Plasmas as a general rule have faster response times, are more forgiving of SD sources, have better colour and contrast and give a more natural image most of the time when setup right. 1080p's main advantage requires you to either have a big screen or sit very close to the set to appreciatte it.

I would say as a general rule if your still watching a lot of SD, plasma is more likely to be superior. This doesn't mean there aren't LCD sets with excellent SD performance but they are harder to find.

Just look at the SD freeview images on some of the LCD sets in supermarkets. Quite frankly they are a joke.

There's a good bit of info here, skip to the conclusion if you can't be bothered to read it. Its very fair. One thing not mentioned is the quicker response time of plasmas generally which makes them better for gaming.

Actually, not a good idea. Most shop lighting completely ruins the picture on tellies, so they all use special shop modes where brightness, contrast and colour are cranked up to absurd levels. You get almost no idea of the quality of a set in these circumstances.

I don't see the point in arguing over HD or not HD, i have an LG thats not HD, and the picture beats a HD picture any day of the week, when friends come round and play on the console they regularly get annoyed they have to go back to thier HD ready tv which is worse.

Of course the people that have done nothing but moan can buy a HD ready TV and go into work safe in the knowledge you can gloat about having a HD tv....but i think i'll just stick to my non HD 42" with a picture that makes everyone moan about thier own tv's :thumbsup:
#36
Recently bought a similar model to this and took it straight back - the HD quality was very poor imho.

£50 extra gets you a 1080p LCD LG from Richer Sounds, so cold from me as if you are spending £400 I really can't call this a bargain when for £50 more you can get a lot more TV for your coin - the LH3000 also has the USB hack so really cannot see any reason to shell out on this type of TV - old tech on this one tbh.

Utter nonsense - I will take a 1080p HD picture over your none HD any day and your mates either have their TV's set up by a monkey butler or you are talking about SD sourced input because there is no way on this planet your non HD tv will look as good as a HD tv with HD input.

90% of the stuff I watch is in HD these days (source what isn't on UK HD channels elsewhere) and I can say that a full HD set used properly will always beat a SD set when both are using the correct source for their viewing.

I reserved this TV from comet for about £20 less than this a few weeks ago (there was a code going around). When I went to look at it I found the picture far better than anything else in the price range. All the LCDs seemed really 'flickery' and almost grainy in comparison and SD sources strained my eyes. This looked smooth and the colour was better (although point made about lighting and shop mode).

I almost just ordered a 1080p LCD online, I am glad I actually went and looked at them before.

I bought the LG and have been happy with it so far

Got it in one:thumbsup:, far too much credence given to numbers.

Picture and sound quality is what really matters.
