Anyone suggest this? Im not looking for full HD. Does this work ok with SD and HD?

I have virgin media with some HD channels and movies, dvds etc. Can i watch them all with no qulity lost? I know that if i get Full HD TV, i wll not be able to see SD at all or in low qulity.

PLUS: Littlewoods have 10% off vouchers to be used on electrical items on here somewhere. Quite few of them, bringing the price down to £410

I have this TV and it handles SD (Freeview) very well. I have the standard Virgin Box which also looks good through SCART, but virgin media only has BBC HD at the moment and you need a V+ HD box to get it so Iceboy, what channels do you reckon you're getting??

1080P ("full HD") TV's will support SD picture no problem, Virgin Media will let you down in the HD stakes though I'm afraid, their HD range is one channel + on demand..

go to hell littlewoods, always be wary of littlewoods and marshal ward and the associated companies. They are real pains in the back side. I would strongly suggest people to stay away from them, just do a little research and you will see what i mean. the following is taken from ther T&Cs:

"2.3 Promotional codes are codes that enable customers to obtain benefits such as discounts, free delivery and free gifts. These codes are non-transferable so may only be used by the person to whom they are issued and must only be used in accordance with their terms and conditions of use. If you use a promotional code to claim a promotional benefit, you must first check that it was issued to you and that you are eligible to use it. By using it to claim a promotional benefit you will be confirming that:-

(i) you are entitled to use the code;
(ii) you meet all the conditions that apply to its use;
(iii) you agree to the terms set out below.

If, before accepting your order, we find that you are not entitled to use the code or do not meet all the terms and conditions of its use, we may reject your order or alternatively process it without the promotional benefit being applied. If, after accepting your order, we find that you were not entitled to use the code or did not meet all the terms and conditions of its use, we may reverse the benefit that you obtained. If you transacted on a cash basis e.g. by debit or credit card, we may take a further payment, equivalent to the value of the benefit obtained, from the card used. If you transacted on a credit basis, the value of the benefit obtained may be charged to your credit account."

As you can see they are a vile bunch, who practise unethical business.

.... And just what makes them "a vile bunch, who practise unethical business"? Every company has its T&Cs. In this case Littlewoods are trying to stop the abuse of discount codes being shared with the rest of the world. I fully understand this.

Lets, face it, we all want a bargain, otherwise this site wouldn't exist. But who's being unethical? It's a fine line ;-)

Used a discount code when I bought a Sony Vaio laptop from them a few months ago with no problems.

Bought a set of all solid pine dining table & 6 chairs - reduced to £300, for £240 with a 20% code from LD. They even paid £17 Quidco on top. Having seen the same time set for ~ £500 @ Homebase, it was a bargain from Littlewoods and they even gave a call to find out if I was happy with the product.

Never had any problems with Littlewoods and no retailer could happily allow a £30 discount on a product priced at £32 on a regular basis using multi accounts. Ethics is valid for both buyer and seller, IMO :)

This TV isn't full HD, it's a 1366 x 768 panel
#13
Just purchased one, I had the 32" version currently and the HD picture quality is stunning. At this price you canno go wrong.

No one has mentioned 8% Quidco too bringing it down to £418 if it validates.

Heat added!

£487 @ Dixons http://www.dixons.co.uk/product.php?sku=886911

Apply code FIVETV to get extra 5% off and code DELTV for free delivery.

Got one coming Wednesday (that's 2 day delivery and I cannot be bothered with Littlewoods as they seem to take years).

TV is £550 (+ delivery) in Argos and Comet. Nice saving for what is a beautiful looking set.

This tv looks like a good bit of kit, im liking the plasma for the same price. I get paid on friday so thinking about ordering one. I see alot of tvs are coming down on prices do you think I should hold on for a bit longer as my xbox comes in on monday, I don't know if I can wait any longer now

Does anybody own the plasma or the lcd... what are your personal reviews ?
#17
This tv does not display 1080p so therefore won't display HD broadcasts, blu ray or any other high def sources full stop! I mean, it will display them but only at 720. In my opinion which is obviously just that, I think it's utterly pointless to buy this tv. You can get 42" LG's which do 1080p for only a few quid more.
#18
HD broadcasts? Is there any full HD broadcasts? I don't think so.

Only place to get full HD is a PS3, Bluray or your PC. This TV will do for most people.

True, this TV does not display 1080p but unless your eyesight is incredible and you sit about a foot away from the screen, you'll not notice the difference on this size of screen in a normal viewing environment.

I have run some HD, sorry 720p video through my PC into the HDMI port and the quality is stunning. I paid a bit more but it is well worth the dosh:thumbsup:

You say 'HD, sorry 720' as if to mock me but 720 is what a dvd displays. On a PC size screen I agree it would make no difference. It's just my opinion as I said but I'm trying to stop people wasting their money by not protecting themselves from the next thing to come out. i.e High Def 1080P. I have a PS3 and a big collection of over 40 blu rays which I play on a Sony 40" and let me assure you the difference is very, very noticeable whether 2 foot or 8 foot away plus the other benefits like 7.1 surround. I can play a dvd on the PS3 (720) and then a blu ray and there's no question which is which. RE: HD broadcasts- I thought that's what the likes of Sky and Freesat were doing ie Bbc Hd etc but I don't have either so maybe you could correct me on that one.

LG 42LG5010 (42LG5000) 42" HD Ready 1080p Digital LCD TV - £536.04 @ Dixons. This was on a while ago and IS a good deal. It's £100 more listed at £599 as is the one in question £499 with 10%. For £100 more or with the discounts £90 more, atleast in a years time you won't be looking for a new TV when all your mates are watching Blu rays. The Tv's will continue to get cheaper almost everyday because something new always comes out so my advice would be to snap yourself up a bargain in January. Do yourself a favour and by the most up to date technology you can because the 42LG3000 is about as worthless as a CRT!
#22
I have to dissagree on that point,

Yes 1080p is better than 720p , but i dont have a ps3 nor will i have for a long time for the money this Screen out performs the cheap 1080p screens which just cant update quick enough to display the 1080 data. Personally i would much prefare to have a fantastic picture at 720 than a mediocre one with a few more lines.

Blacks are supposed to be fantastic on this set compared with "just ok " on the 5000 range which gets very poor reviews. If you are going to get a 1080p set spend the money and get a good one if not youll do alot worse than get this one. Besides sky HD outputs at 720 , as does xbox 360.

As for the CRT comment some very serious AV people still say CRT gives the best image so they are along way from "useless"

And finally 1080p isnt the "next thing to come out" 1440p is and there is a useful chart to show you how far you have to sit from a tv to notice different resolutions. Wish i could find it now. However for a 42" screen if you are sitting anymore than 7ft away you will just about see all the benifits of a 720 set! you need to be sitting about 5 foot away to get the total benifits of a 1080p , and imho thats too close to a tv that size

Ok, Ha..lol. This conversation has gone on too long, I only wanted to state I didn't think it was a good buy. I didn't say CRT was useless I said worthless. Try selling one! Nobody wants 'em. I know they're still used in tv studios and to be honest I would agree they give you a better picture for watching freeview etc.

I agree 1080p isn't the next thing to come out, I've had it over a year and your still suggesting buying a tv now that doesn't even do current capabilities.
You are purely talking about the tighter visuals of sitting up close but when you watch a Blu ray you'll notice that the colours are brighter and the whole thing just looks and sounds better.

I don't know about the reviews for the LG5000 as I myself did do research and wouldn't by an lg at all, as I said I have a Sony bravia 40w2000 which I bought some time ago and still is more up to date and has more value than the tv's you're referring to.

I think the guy who said 'this Tv will do most people' summed it up really: If when looking to spend a large sum of money on a tv you think, 'well, I suppose this will do'. then go for it! Also reading between the lines I bet he wouldn't buy it. If you don't aspire to have anything better than what you percieve most people would settle for then this is the Tv you.

I'm sure it's a good Tv but I don't see the point you may as well buy yourself a big old CRT for £40.
Anyway, I wasted far too much time geeking off about a tv a don't like, I'd rather be raving about something, good luck and hope you enjoy!

Just recieved the Unit in work this morning and have set it up (love working for a set top box company :roll: )

First impressions:
Stunning Looking unit right out of the box looks alot better than the 32" samsungs its sitting beside although that is very much personal opinion i guess. And the samsungs are not this years models.

Ill start with SD content , with the same feed going into both tvs firstly just using the onboard digi tuner. THis unit does out perform the samsungs, the stream is much clearer and generally easier to watch , hooking up one of our boxes and playing out an SD test footage again this time through a high quality scart cable The LG is very capable and plesnt to watch far less jaggies anyway even with the bigger screen size.

The final test done was through HDMI playing firstly High Definition Test footage (think random fast moving shapes through to flashing lights and very dark scenes) At a distance of 5 feet the Picture quality of the samsung was slightly sharper however the blacks on the LG are very good for a LCD unit not plasma good but for a budget tv i was seriously impressed and colours were as vibrant as the samsung(color levels having nothing to do with screen resolution)


All in all if you are buying a tv to play Blue ray films on , or you have some other source of 1080p footage then this probably isnt the tv for you , however if you are playing mainly standard deffiniton material , or gaming with xbox360 or ps3(both only capable of playing games at 720p). i will hook my sky hd box up when i lug this thing home to test that againt my toshiba rezga at home but i suspect there wont be much of a difference as not even skyHD will output 1080p

No mock intended:thumbsup: but 720×576 is DVD resolution which is 720 pixels wide, not high so would look roughly the same unless you have an upscaling DVD player which must do some kind of interpolation between pixels or something :thinking: but why buy a DVD if you have an HD TV you should be buying Blu-Ray movies??

Anyway, I'll probably be pushing up daisies before there is a full HD, non-subscription, non bandwidth limited TV network that is worth watching. I will certainly not be paying Mr Branson £75 for a Virgin HD+ Box to watch one channel:p

Anyway, great telly IMHO but some people like Guiness and some like Lager, it's up to individual preference. Only glitch I have is that it automatically changes channel on start up to the Virgin box no matter what source was selected at shutdown??

Hi again, already stated I was watching blu rays, that was the whole point of what I was trying to say, and yes the playstation upscales if you're just watching a dvd. I agree with the Virgin/sky thing, I wouldn't bother either. Also, there are games on the PS3 in 1080p. I have 1. WipeoutHD. Great game!
ps check out the new OLED's if you have a fat wallet!!!
