to be honest i have a lg plasma with the same resolution as this
and mine is an older tv, bought it about 5 years ago
and still going strong
if i remember correctly these had just come out or ones like it when i bought mine and were about £1500 or one like it
this obviosly isnt hd ready (but reading the spec it has hdmi which mine didnt so i may be wrong) but you can put hd content through it via component and possibly RGB
which will allow 1080i

picture quality is great on these tvs
alot better than some of the latest lcds for standard definition
you get no pixelation or motion blur
if your on a budget then this will be fine and for the money its fine

this just my opinion and maybe worth putting the model number in google for a write up on this model

But with a resolution of 852x480 any HD content would be downscaled back to SD as the TV isn't capable of a HD resolution. Would be no different to watching normal SD. Even if it will accept a 1080i feed it doesn't mean it can display that Res, it will just downscale it.

Nearly all new 720p Hd ready TV's will accept a 1080p feed and will tell you it's a 1080p signal but the TV will just be downscaling it back to 720p

Saving up some extra cash (even if it means waiting a bit longer) and buying something like a Panasonic TH42PX80 is a far far better idea if your after a 42" Plasma :thumbsup:

This tv offers a fantastic standard def picture. and stills decent with a hd feed. lets be honest, there are probably more people out there who only have normal sky not hd, and maybe only watch freeview! Own normal dvd players and very rarely play a games console....and if they do its a wii or a ps2. Tell me....where amongst that lot is a HD tv really required? Its not.

Who expired it?:x

This is a pretty good buy - actually a great buy for the price. Forget all the HD cobblers - most TV transmissions are in SD, which is fine on this and SD-DVDs give a very good picture on this too. Viewing distance is more relevant in any event.

If you've only got this budget to spend, you are not going to get much better unless you go for a budget LCD and then you get all the nasty issues associated with cheap LCDs.

I've had this very same set as well as a 50" HD ready LG too. I'm always looking for an excuse to replace the 42" set but really can't justify it 'cos it is really good. It copes very well with all the usual HD feeds including PS3, XBOX 360 and HD-DVD as well as SD Sky+ via scart.

Absolute bargain for £400:thumbsup:

The Panny is £200 or 50% more. That is not loose change for a lot of people.

Your comments about resolution, while they might be factually correct, do not sit with the actuality of most people's viewing, which is SD for the most part.

If you watch non-HD football on this you'll get a significantly better experience than a similarly priced LCD and the Panny ain't gonna be a revelation for the extra cash.

In fact, as the pixels on this set are larger, the picture has a visual dynamic that higher resolution sets don't have.

It really is a great 42" plasma for only £400.

Could a Mod unexpire this 'cos it's in stock and available

there is also something you can buy called HD FURY
it allows a hd feed upto 1080p on a non hd tv
it uses tyhe vga port
and bypasses HDCP (or what ever its called)
which is part of the hd ready tvs as well as having hdmi
i know the native resolution of thius tv is low
but i know through component you can get 1080i
so there is no reason that with the hd fury you wont get 1080p


they cost about £50 and would allow

when i press the info button on the remote control with the same native resolution on my lg plasma when playing my xbox 360 through component it actually says 1080i, so it is displaying 1080i
if you go to the lg website and download the manual in pdf format
it should tell you all the resolutions
and it will say through component and red/green/blue it 1366x768

So your saying the Res of this panel is actually 1366x768 then. Not 852x480 as posted by the OP. That's good; makes this panel a decent bargain as long as the black levels are good and it doesn't have retention issues like some of the earlier LG panels.

Even if this is the case though it is still physically incapable of displaying a 1080i picture (1920x1080).

The TV will be Downscaling to it's native res of 1366x768.

This isn't necessarily a bad thing though as most 720p Plasma's still make cracking TV's and are generally better than all but the best higher res TV's at handling Sd feeds.

That's just telling you the Input res.
