nice find, have some heat, although if possible try and go for the 42PJ550 if you can get it at a good price, as this model doesn't have USB playback for video files for some illogical reason, where as the 42PJ550 and 42PJ650 have this facility available..

nice one, I got the PJ550 a couple of months back, and I've been blown away with it so far..

How good would this look with sky hd? Am I right in saying sky HD is transmitted in 720p? My tv is a 27 inch AOC and not sure of the resolution but its deffo not 720p and my old panny 6 series panel is even lower and will not display hd signals through the vga/scart convertor and it looks pants through the scart.

Are you able to run your Sky Box through via HDMI to your existing television?
#6
Yeah it will run off hdmi (the aoc)and looks loads better than scart but its still pretty poor espeially when I go to my dads house where he has a 1080p phillips lcd but with only sky via scart. The panny is more than 6 yr old and does not have a hdmi. It looks pretty good still with freeview and a scart/vga convertor connected via vga but is showing its age.

have a look on avforums or amazon and read some of the reviews for this television, most of the people who have Sky HD, PS3's, XBox 360's or Bluray players hooked up seem pretty happy with it..

Excellent price. My only issue with it is that for the screen size, it's really screaming for 1080p.

Cold from me.
Can get a decent 1080P LCD for little more.
LCD and LED is moving on...plasma is being discounted.

I'm sorry but that's absolute garbage!

Let me put it to you this way, I drive a car that has an engine that burns petrol (well duh). It's technology is over 100 years old. Yes at first it was inefficient and dirty just like plasmas WERE engergy hungry and USED to have screen burn but things have moved on!

New electric cars are "cleaner" etc apparently. Is your next car gonna be an electric car then?

What i'm trying to say is newer technology isn't always better! Have you ever seen a plasma vs lcd of similar price in real life in a proper living room? Plasma is waaaay better, more natural and can handle movement unlike lcd.

720p vs 1080p - millions of threads on the forum already explained this?

Pic quality on this is the equal of a 1080p lcd at double the price.


Oh, and LED sets at this size don't exist, and when they do they'll start at £10k. What are marketed as "LED" are nothing of the sort, they're plain old LCD, which is an older tech than plasma.

Plasma TVs are better at displaying levels of blacks, they are good for movies.

Although they do consume much more energy and aren't as good at the bright colours.
1080p is standard on most LCDs and OLED TVs, 720p is adequate for normal TV watching but id rather have the 1080p for blu ray and consoles but actually many games are 720p native.

At this price its a good TV.

LEDs just an improvement over the existing LCDs it can do blacks and that better than a normal LCD can. OLED is the newer tech but it doesn't last long wears out.

That is a mad opinion. Power consumption isn't a dramatic difference, Plasmas technology is vastly superior in many ways. Its response time is measured in nano seconds instead of microseconds. Meaning more fluid animation, panning and scanning etc. Input lag is often lower making gaming more responsive. You can view from any angle. Proper blacks and generally less picture processing needed compared to LCD. The fact of the matter is LCD is in catch up mode. They are working hard with LCD to try to get the response times better and improve black levels because LCD is fundamentally cheaper to make so they would prefer to sell only LCD but the reality is they know Plasma is currently superior. Its far easier to buy a bad LCD than plasma. Some LCDs are atrocious with terrible SD images, horrible viewing angles, jerky panning, onscreen artifacts around fast motion and sometimes on the ultra thin models terrible sound.

There is no perfect TV set but Plasma is far closer to being one than LCD.

Very interesting, about the power. I have noticed that some places are pushing plasma, but selling less models? Are they on their way out?

Plasma power consumption used to be higher. In fact a lot of plasma's are more much more efficient than comparable lcd's nowadays.

Also remember that the power consumption of a plasma is dynamic, i.e. it will be much lower when watching darker scenes whereas an lcd will be using exactly the same regardless of what is showing.

I have used this tv for around 5 months, both via SD, xbox 360 and VGA. It has been flawless throughout and I have experienced no screenburn. The picture quality still impresses me today, although it is let down somewhat by the sound. This is easily remidied.

I cannot stand to look at LCDs of this price, to me they appear jerky and uncomfortable in comparison (and yes, I spent a few weeks looking at alternatives). For £350, this is a steal
#21
Went for one as its a bargain and will be more than good enough as only have a wii and standard dvd player so nothing 1080p at all and I prefer a plasma anyhow!

I believe Sky transmit in 1080i ( which still looks very good on my panny plasma ). There is nothing which is broadcast in 1080p, other debates explain why.

Already been dispatched so looking forward to getting it.

It arrived this morning and I am very happy with it especially at that price!
