yeah just had a look, i hadnt looked at that, however the chassis is the same as my 32" hannspree...must source panels from same place.

The one in the picture is a digimate, I have the 32" from dabsvalue. Not great but decent.

yeah would seem that way. my hannspree is great and id easily take a chance on this...contemplating myself, although id prefer a 40/42 but we sit quite close to tv anyways, so getting bigger tv would mean moving sofas back further...

or a hannspree, they look identical believe me, i have the hannspree in my living room!
Probably all come from same supplier, which i believe to be hannspree...and digimate/elonex rebrand...

why does the post say under 299 when it is 299 ??


2% Quidco?

If it's the hannspree, I have the exact same model in our bedroom. Superb value.
#11
im sure i've seen the elonex 37" one in £ stretcher, for £299 too!
think its the same one
#12
Hot stuff! Gonna find out if it will fit in living room...doubt it :(
#13
HD Ready presumably, can't be full HD at this price?
#14
hmmm...no mention of the resolution in the spec. Anywhere.

Bet it is not 1080p.

Click it and you cant get much more obvious then it telling you

"HD Ready"

so 720p/1080i
#16
I do apologise for not noticing the PDF, shot down in flames. :roll:
#17
It's 1366 x 768 http://www.1staudiovisual.co.uk/catalog/elonex-inch-ready-p-5503.html?lcd-plasma-tv-shop=213

Incorrect. HD ready can be 720p.

To be fair I doubt it's going to make any difference at this size.

OK, under 299.01 is that better? FFS

Why does your post have multiple question marks when one is prefectly adequate?

HMmm, no digital tuner though.

dont forget what you pay for is what you get, so if you want something very good i doubt this will deliver.

I fail to see your point...HD ready can be 720p...and thus i said "so 720p/1080i"

EDIT: think you were comparing 720 = 1280x720 rather then 1366 x 768...transmissions and HD source dont usually display at 1366x768 but 1280x720.
So unless using a PC thats the only time resolution will matter. SO to be tedious...it is 768p :P
#22
super price but bear in mind your dealing with dabs , no the best after sale support if required .... check out forums.... but £300 is excellent given i paid £380 for a phillips 37" just b4 xmas .... you pays your money and you takes your chances...
#23
It's not 1080i though is it, that was my point. ;) Mentioning it is just going to confuse people.

but thus it is it will support 1080i input...for eg i have a 32" hannspree hd ready and my upscaling dvd player will output 1080i to it and display it correctly as that is how 720p set are set up (and the resolution is 1366x768, but its a 720p set, as thus thats the standard of HD transmission!) But if i set it to 1080p it wont display it, 1080p is what we call full HD! not 1080i input supported.

Erm, yes it is!

1366 x 768 is 720p and 1080i

I have a 32" Sony set that displays at either 720p OR 1080i depending on the source being shown.

So awoodhall2003 is correct .... back in your box :whistling:

And the site says.... " Image shown may differ from actual product appearance. " So the TV you get could be totally different

How can a screen with 768 possibly display 1080 lines, interlaced or not?

:whistling::whistling::whistling::whistling:


I don't know how it works exactly but it does work like that. Although the resolution is technically 720p it will display 1080i images. I have a 1366 x 768 and it displays in 1080 when I play my Xbox 360 on it.
#30
Eww, Dabs Value 37" TV? Wouldn't use it for the main TV, maybe bedroom. ;)

:whistling::whistling::whistling::whistling:


720p: This is 720 lines of resolution, with a frame rate of 60 frames per second... This means ALL 720 lines are drawn in order every 1/60th of a second...

1080i: This is 1080 lines of resolution, with a FIELD rate of 60 fields per second... It takes 2 fields to make a frame, so therefore it's 30 frames per second, i.e. every FIELD takes 1/60th of a second and is only comprised of HALF the lines... 2 fields are drawn every 1/30th of a second, and "added" together by our eyes to get a single frame.

1080p: is of course 1080 lines of resolution, with a frame rate of 60 frames per second... All 1080 lines drawn in order every 1/60th of a second...

BUT If it's 720 lines of resolution native, then it's SILLY to feed it 1080i, since you'll STILL get 720 lines of resolution, it's probably going to have motion artifacting...
It downconverts if you like to 720, thus pointless it could be argued, but nevertheless, its like upconverting to downconverting...will you get better quality? Probably negligeable!

Remember it still is a 720p/1080i screen, and remember "consumerism" that will answer why they show it as that!
#32
It downscales 1080i to 720p. I ain't getting back in my box. It isn't 1080.
#33
If you only have £299 and must have a 37 inch screen then this fits the bill perfectly otherwise go for a decent screen like this for 'only' an extra £120.

Unless you are sitting about 5ft from a 37inch screen you don't need full HD and if you are that close then SD will look pretty blocky through Freeview so go for a better quality 32incher.

I'm not dissing the op's find, it may be fine but........I was in an electrical store today (not looking for a TV), and lined up on the shelf were in excess of 20 LCD/Plasma sets and I didn't see what I class as a good picture on one of them. I did ask the guy out of interest what feed they were and he said they were Freeview SD.

I refuse to jump on the lcd/plasma bandwagon for a TV that looks nice when turned off, I still say the picture on my 28" philips CRT is far superior closer or further away, what is the logic in these flatscreens.

Role on OLED....thats what I'm waiting for, just hope my CRT lasts a few more years so I can afford one......and sorry its a bit of topic but its nice to cause a stir:p

Yes ideal if you want to watch a handful of channels only....or very expensive posh DVD's :w00t:
#37
Dabs is risky shopping.
- NO customer service
- NO telephone number to ring
- Maybe get an answer within 5 days to your email, mostly not
- If anything goes wrong with your order, your s*****d

Use credit card only with DIRECT checkout (not Paypal or Google checkout). At least you can claim money back through your credit card (which I had to do).

Console gaming is HD now and sky has 32 channels, a little more than a handful.

Listen, you're arguing the technology, not the deal. You may want to go elsewhere with that discussion.

Yes your right, I did apologise for being off topic. I won't be taking it any further as I wasn't looking for an argument, just a reasonable explanation, which I didn't get, except for the gaming part.

Its just MHO and I flatly refuse to buy any of todays flatscreen technology......perhaps if CRT TV's were put back in stores to display alongside these things folks would realise where the quality is at for most of them who will be watching SD now and for a few years yet!

Thats it......I'm off my box, and if I hadn't been in that store today I wouldn't have bothered :whistling::)
