would of been great if it was lcd but still a good deal
#2
Paid More Than That For Mi 42"
#3
This seems to be an average price for this TV.

Excuse my ignorance ... whats the difference between plasma and LCD in terms of the benefits/downfalls??
#4
Quidco, are you sure ?

LCD-slim, good vibrant colours, depending on model can have crap greyed black levels and dreadful motion pixelling and blur

plasma-more natural looking picture, plexiglass screen which is generally more hard wearing, larger than an equivalent size LCD but should be cheaper to buy.
Some say uses more electricity but its variable depending on whats showing on the screen. and LCD will always use a constant amount tho
#7
Plasmas much heavier too . . .
#8
Also screen burn is an issue with plasma's. If like me your tv is on Nick Jr 80% of the time you will eventually see the logo on whatever you are watching (well inverted colours if im more precise)

it depends on if you have the TVs screen burn protection activated or not.

we have 3 plasma 50" instore all playing demos with a static logo in the top corner.
no problems with screen burn.

i used to happrn with CRT monitors too if the pc wasnt using a screensaver

Generally

Gaming = LCD

SD (Standard Definition) = Plasma

HD = About on par,

Plasma's are generally cheaper after about 42"
#11
Also, most plasma tv's arent even HD, having a resolution of just 1024x768 compared to an LCD which is usually 1366x768 (unless of course the tv's are 1080p)
#12
You won't get an LCD this size for a price anywhere near this and EVERYONE needs a 50 inch telly!

Not full HD though which will be an issue if you sit less than 8ft from the screen watching BluRay. If you aren't watchin a 1080p source then 720p (like this) is fine.

P.S. BBC HD is only 720p
#13
just got myself a panny plasma 42" looks damn good too

Do most modern plasmas now have methods to combat this ? This was one of the reasons i opted out of the recent 46" panny deal, mainly because my tv is 80% kids channels on cable.
#15
Gorgeous looking TV was admiring it in Currys only yesterday and was considering it at £699.

Good modern plasmas don't get screen burn
Plus it should be fine for gaming given the 600Hz technology

Only slight issue is not supporting 1080p but if you're only watching Sky HD content for example shouldn't make any difference at all. Could only really be a problem to film buffs watching Blu Ray movies as I've got an Xbox 360 and PS3 and gaming on 720p is awesome anyways
#16
ive got this tv sitting in its box waiting for me to install it. I originally bought it from dixons a couple weeks back but it was faulty (kept switching on and off) so had to send it back and wait for a replacement. Heard that its best to keep the brightness down for the first 200 hours because image retention can be bad during the start of its life!.

I bought a LG 47inch lcd full 1080p and have moved tha to the kids rooms as the plasma is alot better for the SD tv.

BBC HD is actually 1080i (1440x1080 50i)
720p would be 1280x720 50/60p
Most Sky HD channels are 1080i (1920x1080 50i)
Bluray movies are generally 1080p 1920x1080 23.976p
#18
Was talking to the Virgin guy who done my dads house the other day and he says theres now around 5 HD channels with more to come this year. Last time i looked it was only BBC HD. I know Virgin got ESPN HD if i remember rightly after Setanta died ? Anyone know what res these are in ?

my understanding was that sky was only 720, but the box upscaled it to 1080...

Sky's HD broadcasts are 1080i and the Sky + HD box outputs 1080i but can scale 1080i to 720p, 576p and downconvert to 625i (PAL). The box also supports 720p 50 broadcasts.

On the simulcast HD channels it's HD when the HD logo is shown and upscaled SD when the logo is absent.

Now back to the LG 50inch, if you sit at a normal HD viewing distance for 1080i (2m or less for this size) then a true 1080 display will look much better.

Trust me, I supervise HD and Digital Cinema production.
My next production is in UK cinemas on 4th September, trailer link below.

So what you are saying is that the telly is excellent value for money depending on the input.
#24
What people often forget to mention in these discussions that 'progressive' produces a better picture than 'interlaced' and therefore in many circumstances a 720p picture is better than 1080i depending on what you're watching / playing in the case of game consoles
#25
Same price at Amazon but no cashback
#26
Indeed most plasmas don't suffer from burn so much these days.

There is still some risk but it isn't high, but even LCD can suffer from some 'sticking' issues over time (but that is a whole other science).
#27
how do you get it for this price, its £675 ???
