No it's not "HD Ready", "Full HD" or even " Will Do HD On A Wednesday if I'm Not Busy"!

However, it will accept SD and HD feeds and reproduce them in a very pleasing way. It is a much better buy than a cheap LCD.

To paraphrase Gordon Ramsay:

42"

Bargain!

Not HD isn't a bad thing :S

This'll make wii and ps2 games look glorious!

I'm tempted to buy for the bedroom. The idea of a friggin huge FLAT screen that will do my SD games is an utter opportunity.

if anyones planing to get a plasma make sure they get a good warranty as they have alot of problems and especially one this old.

What???? We've had 2 plasmas spanning well over 5 years and had no issues with either. If you're referring to screen burn, then most plasmas have built-in guards against this now and it was never really a massive issue, unless you were diaplaying a static image for a verrrrryyyyy looooonnnnggggg time

i dunno mate the guy at richersounds told me that the older plasmas had a bad reputation and the new generation plasmas had that guard which protects it from screen burn. but this plasma is old and i dont think its the new gen plasmas.

Buhahahahah!!!!!! Richer Sounds told you eh, lol. I've had a 42" Panasonic for 2 years, a mate has 2 42" Panasonic sets and no problems in 2 years, my neighbour has had a Pionerr 42" for about 18 months too with no problems. We all play games on our sets and there's no issue with screen burn, it takes aaaaages for an image to burn. I've left a game paused for over an hour without issue. I should think RS are referring to one's going back 5 years+.

This set is nowhere near 5 years+, however 852x480 Panel Resolution is not good, buying a tv with a res like that is silly as it'll be no good for possible future HD transmissions and if you own Sky HD, PS3, Xbox 360, blah, blah, blah you won't get anywhere near the best out of your precious gadgets, you'll just wish you bought a 720p set at the very least and want to upgrade, so why buy this set in the first place! It's ok for people that don't appreciate or understand technology as they'd never know what they were missing out on lol.

Nice price for a 42" plasma, but that res lets it down, chilly from me too.

I've left the thing on all night without any screen burn. You can sometimes get some image retention that goes away in a few minutes when you watch something else but image retention is not screen burn.

Screen burn is one of those urban myths that attaches to plasmas like the one that says drinking cola dissolves your teeth.

Utter bullcra*p:whistling:

I was with you on the screen burn point up until you came out with that particular pearl of wisdom.

Don't be a dork.

If you understood what HD resolution actually means in the real world then you'll know why you are spouting cobblers:p

I know what HD means "in the real world" thank you very much, just because you cannot accept that some of us see what a poor value for money purchase this is there's NO need to have personal digs and turn the thread into a slagging match!

The other thread of this got -140 degrees, lets face it, the people have spoken, let it go!

This thread IS +450 degrees for a Daewoo LCD at the same price:

The people may indeed have spoken. Yet the people also elected George W. Bush and our current useless Labour Government too FFS!:whistling:

The LG isn't poor value - in fact for the price it's a great deal. In this case unfortunately, you can lead a horse to water but sometimes the nag is too stupid to take a drink:p

That tv has a descent res though, I'm not surprised it got to the heat it did for £20 less than your non hd offering.

£20 less for a discount code that appears to not exist or has conditions not generally available to the general public - did you actually read the thread? :whistling:

A "descent res"?

What does that mean?:?

If you advise people to buy the Daewoo over the LG please be explicit and thus we can offer our joint advice and experience to all and sundry concerning the better deal.

No I didn't read the thread. So it's £399, it's still a better tv regardless of the brand.

If you don't know what I mean referring to the res then you need to be doing some reading about screen resolutions before you give out advise. As for being explicit, there really is no need. The specs speak for themselves, same price, better spec, better display, better buy.

Well if you had read the threads rather than just posting for the sake of it you would know that the relative merit of a TV is more than just "my resolution is better than yours"! Oh, and the word is "advice":p

Read the thread, all 2 pages of it, no it's not what?

The point of the res is everything!!!! Read and learn. No point discussing this any further with you as you haven't a clue.

Picking on spelling now, you really are petty aren't you!!!

Sorry, its you who is clueless!

Read the following:

Bernard Lechner is an award winning television engineer. At RCA he was heavily involved in the development of HDTV. Lechner researched the typical distance between a viewer and their television screen by taking measurements in many American homes. The median distance complied from all his data came out to 9 feet. This measurement is now called the Lechner distance.

There are two standard HD broadcast resolutions 720 lines and 1080 lines. The following are the minimum screen sizes that will let your eyes resolve all the detail at the Lechner distance, one for each HD broadcast resolution.

For a 720p display it’s a 46” screen size.
For 1080i or 1080p display it’s a whopping 69”screen. All screen measurements are diagonal inches.

A smaller display for each given resolution will not allow your eyes to perceive all the detail that appears in HDTV.


If you view more than 8 feet away, then most eyes cannot perceive any resolution advantage on a 42" screen.

Furthermore, given that most material viewed is not HD in origin, the resolution argument is just stupid for most viewers. There are far more relevant features that affect the picture quality of a TV.

Well that makes it ok then, go on people, blow £399 on a non HD tv cos cheapskate58 says so. Don't complain when you wish you hadn't cos you can't use 720p at worst with your shiny HD equipment :roll:

While your at it, buy all the tv's you can with analogue only tuners :whistling:

You really don't know what you're talking about

"cos you can't use 720p at worst with your shiny HD equipment"

I can't even figure out what you mean by that comment.

:?

This set includes a digital tuner.

The reality is that this TV will accept any HD feed and display it to the panel's maximum resolution. At viewing distances beyond 8 feet or so, people with normal vison will find it difficult to tell any differences between this panel's display resolution and 720p, 1080i or 1080p. What they will notice against an LCD display of a similar size and price is a significant improvement in motion handling and other plasma screen benefits such as better contrast levels and wider viewing angles.

If you want a 42" screen and can't go above £400, then this screen has a lot to offer. Yes, If you can afford to spend more, another £200 say, then there are other options available with better features.

However, for £400, no-one has shown that they know of a better alternative.
