I have heard very bad things about Pixmania's customer services, also all their goods come from France, meaning they often have european power connectors.
#6
and no instructions
#7
Beat me to it..... seems a good deal?

Also, don't forget the 2% Quidco. Even with the £12 discount Bookie posted its nearly another £11 off. I am not that good with figures, but I make that about £537 ish delivered.

This is a super bargain , i just went for this , you cant complain at £545 for a 42" plasma TV and LG too :thumbsup:


Im happy as i was gonna go for the Panasonic Plasma but now saved myself about £400 :w00t:


Btw what do you mean its not HD it says it is and has an HDMI socket?
#11
its hd compatible not hd ready. the screen resolution is only 480p where as hd ready is 780p minimum, i have on order the hd ready model. costs a bit more...£800 inc delivery impaying, but its gonna suit my xbox 360 much better

"HDMI provides an interface between any compatible digital audio/video source, such as a set-top box, a DVD player, a PC, a video game system, or an AV receiver and a compatible digital audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television"

I am sooo tempted. Has anyone got this or has an opinion? Does HD actually matter right now?
#13
Does this mean its rubbish then?

As i dont want a rubbish picture
#14
Oh i dont really care i dont get much HD programs on my TV anyway so does it matter , betime all programs are in HD i would have a new tv by then anyway....as long as it comes with a UK plug im kewl

It has a HDMI socket but cannot display HD picture quality it can just accept the data and display it as normal digital quality. The TV is not HD ready but still a good price nevertheless.
#16
Standard def TVs can have HDMI sockets as well - that's just a connector. THis TV is 852*480 resolution, where HD ready means 720 vertical lines or more (ie 1024*768, 1280*720, 1366*768 etc).

Still a great price though. Also nice to see a Faroudja chip in there, makes for good deinterlacing.
#17
Oh not sure if is hould cancel now if its i cant enjoy HD programs to the full .....i always buy things on the spur of the moment :/

oh what to do:idea:
#18
Well I have HD and state of the art 1080p 47" toshiba but to tell you the truth HD is brilliant but not worth the money - you find that when you get a new telly the pic on ordinary digital channels is pretty good and I have seen myself watching a football match on normal and only realising its on HD half way thru and obviously change over to HD but it isnt that good. I am not slagging SKY as if you have money to burn its ok. Whereas SKY+ is the best gadget I have ever had I recommend it to everyone and everyone says thanks for recommending SKY+. So guys unless u need HD dont worry u aint missing anything. THis TV is a good deal but you can get Hitachi or Panasonic for an extra £200 and they are superb.
#19
You wonder why it's cheap for it's size. :roll:
#20
Just to confirm, this will probably be the European model which just means you will need an adaptor plug (probably find one in the pound shop)

I ordered an LG tv from pixmania before christmas and this was the case.
#21
852 x 480 will match PAL broadcasts perfectly though. So if your not investing in SkyHD telewest BlueRay or HD DVD then this tv may really suit you.
I have sky HD on a 46" 1080p Samsung but this would be great for another room.
I still dont know why people by HD plasma/lcds when theyre not getting HD - especially the cheap LCDs taht add motion blur and have massive artifacts.

This would be great for someone with normal sky or freeview
and the fajouda chip makes it even better
Ive also bought from pixmania in the past and they usually have a convertor UK 3 pin plug on the end anyway
#22
HD or not £500 makes this fantastic value, its the same price as a half decent 32" LCD (32" is too small to see any difference with HD anyway unless you sit like 12" from the screen). Propper bargain, voted hot and rep added :thumbsup:

HDMI means it is HD compatible, you can plug an HD source into it because it has the HDMI connection. HD READY means that the tv is capable of broadcasting an HD picture, this tv is not HD READY. All tv's that are HD READY have a sticker on them saying that.

If you want an HD READY tv do not buy this.
#24
Nice TV but plasma? Surely LCD are the way to go, plasma cost a fortune to run compare to LCD.
#25
I've got a 32" Sony 100htz CRT with SKY + and the picture still knocks the pants off any LCD or plasma unless broadcasting in HD of course.
#26
read this dave

Don't talk nonsense! Plasma is far better than LCD for anything over 40" and costs no more to run.

If its size your after then this is a good price, but I suspect anything less than a DVD quality sourcemay look poor. Personally I'd wait for the price of HD sets to come down some more...
#28
Anyone find me the perfect stand so I can compare price with panny with stand ordered?

Thanks
#29
Myth
Plasma TVs use more power than their LCD rivals.:giggle:

Results from an independent research conducted by the AVT.O.P. Messetechnik laboratory in Germany, showed that plasmas tend to use the same – and sometimes less – amounts of power than LCD screens.
#30
It really depends what size your after. Anything over 40" has to be plasma. 32" will be LCD. LCD still struggles a bit to handle fast moving objects, like car chases etc...
#31
[QUOTE=cosmic-dust]HDMI means it is HD compatible QUOTE]

incorrect - its just a type of connection

There are currently 3 types of HD sets around

1. A set the can read a HD signal 720p/1080i and downscale to 480p - therefore a loss of resolution

2. HD-ready marked sets - 720p and 1080i - can read and display atleast a 720 line picture (skyHD and telewest HD)

3. and HD full - full 1080p a set with 1920x1080 lines for BlueRay and HD-DVD aswell as PS3 and xbox 360

Now this set is 1
from the tech sheet "Supported DTV Resolutions 480p, 720p, 1080i, 480i, 576i, 576p "
I'll bet this still looks great for freeview sky and your DVD collection at 576p

I say again, buy one if your not going to pay the extra money for HD broadcasts - this tv will probably have better SD pictures than my 1080p samsung

incorrect again stop giving false advice
#33
opinion backed by independent research – is that plasma is the best for 37 inch and higher ;)

Start reading the reviews, LCD has just taken over in picture quality. i.e. best 40" is the Sony 2000 LCD.

Ive had 2 plasmas and currently own 3 LCDs, all award winners Ive had SkyHD since day 1 -whats your experience??

funny also that your independant research is backed by panasonic pioneer and hitachi (main providers of plasma)
-Which by the way i had the excellent 43" Pioneer 436-XDE but now replaced with a larger LCD
#35
I do research and base my opinions on this. Unless everything I read is a lie then I know nothing

Panasonic also make LCD Tv's or am I wrong?

And you know more than people that have spend millions on research and claim your opinion is worth more than that lol

So yeah panasonic are biased towards plasma when they sell LCD also lol very biased

not looked into it but pretty sure pioneer and hitachi make plenty of LCD TV's too :-)

Urrrm, that's an advertising site for a plasma manufacturer, hardly an objective source :-D

Manufacturers that also produce LCD Tv's not just Plasma exclusively

Well I've owned 15 LCD TV's, 7 Plasma's, 3 dogs a cat and a fish tank so I must know more than you!

I agree the Bravia sets are excellent, but at 40" plus for use in the real world ie a mix of HD and SD, Plasma still wins as it displays with lower quality inputs far better than LCD.

And if you only buy stuff that wins awards then you are daft (or loaded or both), AV is all about personal preferance and taste, and the vast majority of reviews are very anal and irrelavant to real world applications!
