Cheap but picture quality on this cheap 42" at 1080p will be nasty for anything other than native res 1080p
#6

I'm sure a sony would be a better TV, though I doubt it's better value for money. Depends on what you care about more?

Picture quality every time.

Had a quick look at the tesco website and some of the other TV's quote native and dynamic contrasts. The native being 1:1500 and the dynamic being 1:7500 on the same TV. Possibly they've quoted the wrong contrast ratio, otherwise it looks utterly terrible. I'm not an expert on contrast ratios but can you really tell the difference between 1:1500 (1:7500) and 1:10000 (or more) - can the human eye pick up a noticeable difference?

This makes me laugh. If it was me posting this the mod would have taken it off by now.

The difference is that static contrast ratio is a true measurement of the TV's ability to go from white to black, while the dynamic constast ratio is the TV's ability to artificially inflate that figure, either using image processing to automatically increase or decrease the contrast (you can do the same in Photoshop, it looks guff) or by lowering or increasing the power of the backlight, which also looks guff. It's a spec you should ignore.

Marketing departments like big numbers because it means a product's quality can be represented with that number. Nevermind that the number is meaningless and frequently detrimental to actual performance (take the megapixel war for example, which at one point resorted to interplotation, where each photo is blown-up in software before being written to the card, to falsely increase megapixel counts). Big numbers mean better gear, according to these people. But it's a lie.

I got this tv (full hd) and hooked it up to a computer but it only displayed 1360x768 resolution. The TV says full HD 1920x1080 on the front. Will contact Tesco for a replacement TV or a refund.

emailed http://clarityvisual.com/ these boys say they do not make the tv and it is not their product.

Are you using HDMI and can your graphics card actually do 1920x1080?
