Also, is only HD Ready 720p (1366×768 WXGA), not full Full HD 1080p (1920×1080). Which on a 42" is a poor show.

With 20/20 vision, you need to sit at 6 feet to see any difference between 1080 and 720 on a 42". Most people are 9-10 feet away and thus it's irrelevant.

What a load of tosh, sitting 20 feet from a TV set I could tell you the difference, if you buy this you are buying in to a false economy ! I bet the guy above bought a 720p set and is still trying to sell it to himself !

Just to get past some of this misinformation, although 1080p is a higher resolution there are currently very few sources that take advantage of it (PS3, Blu-Ray, HD-DVD, downloads and computers) and even if you do have one of those you need to either have a very large screen (larger than this) or sit quite close to have any noticable difference. The only exception to this is when connecting a computer you would notice the extra screen real estate but even with that 1366x768 will be adequate for most uses.

However people will be mostly watching standard definition tv on this with some HD content, most of which will be 720p/1080i. For that this 42" plasma will destroy any LCD in this price range (mostly 32" screens). The main disadvantage of these cheaper plasmas in my opinion is how reflective they are. I'm not sure about this particular model but most of the manufacturers only put filters to make the screen less reflective on their higher end models. Even this isn't a big problem unless the tv is stuck opposite a window with no blinds or curtains.

All in all this is supposed to be a very good tv and don't buy all this 1080p is God crap.

Well Said Spaceman and afstar.

i have the 650.

Also HD ready and also reflective.

neither are issues for me.

the onjly dis (And I mean the ONLY one) with this model is that people on AV forums are still trying to get DivX to play thru the USB socket.

It should be possible.

Oh and only two HDMI (for all the gamers out there)

Damn good price tho.

heat added.

well said Spaceman, mind people still aren't going to listen

Seriously guys, I have a 720p LG 42", f***ing epic picture, who cares about 1080p at the minute anyway, it's better than standard def at an amazing price

If you play online with ps3 or xbox 360 it's well worth the extra money for 1080 as you will notice the difference.

Here's the 1080 and for an extra £50 with free delivery from a well known retailer too.

these 1080p arguements keep coming and coming , why cant people just comment on the tv rather than what its not .............
#13
I have a Panny V10 42" Plasma and I can guarentee the picture quality $hits all over nearly every other TV available in the market (with the exception of the Kuro of course) It costs 3 times what this does but you get what you paid for...

Pathetic comments all based on numbers.

This is a plasma, it will show SD at near HD quality., don't even worry about HD Ready etc.
#16
@scotlandgolfer: considering there are about 5 games total that are true 1080p on the PS3 and 360, I don't think so.

99.999% of games on both consoles are 720p or lower.

For viewing movies/tv, I would much rather have a 720p plasma (I own a panasonic, after much hunting around).

If I were using the telly for 1080p material only, I would have to go the LCD route.

One think I've noticed is that for SD images, LCD is terrible. And given that most of us view SD images, it is a little silly to buy a TV which displays great HD images, but is poor at SD.

For £350, this TV offers great value, allowing you to buy a new set in about 3 years or so, once HD resolutions become more common place.
#20
correct me if im wrong but isnt this 600Hz, the motion picture should be much better and clearer on this. Isnt it......
#21
Looking forward to getting mine. Its on its way from amazon. I have no ps3/xb360 or blueray player so 1080p is of no use to me. Only getting as my old 6 series panny which was 1600 quid and is now almost 7 years old will not display hd images through the vga/scart convertor. So 350 is a bargain and I prefer the look of plasmas myself and always have done.

Same here.

Though, if you are buying a telly especially for HD images, LCDs display extraordinarily pin sharp 1080p images.

I still prefer plasma any day of the week.

I hope everyone who wanted one got in on time, without worrying too much about the whole 1080, 720, lcd, led, plasma debate.

Most 360 and PS3 games don't even do 1080p natively. Uncharted 2 would run at it's native 720p resolution on this set.

Awesome, Halo 3 is a "full" 640p game.

Go and learn about native versus scaled resolutions, the native res is determined by the games not the console, the majority of games don't run at 1080p, they are scaled to fit.

I don't own Halo 3, but the few games I have display fab on my Samsung 63" 3D beauty of a beast! :)

I'm sorry, what year is this ? ahh yes I thought it was 2010, go home little boy, there are hundreds of different types of HD sources out there, not to mention the fact that most PC's and Laptops bought today can plug in to your TV ! Why pay money for a lower quality product, and as for not knowing what I am talking about I am sitting looking at a 1080 p 42 " LG at the moment typing this reply, if I put it down to 720 it looks worse, not exactly rocket science is it ? 1920 is a lot more pixels than 1280, you know the other numbers, not just the first ones ? Do you work in Curry's or PC world by any chance ? ;)

Which is not even slightly comparable to displaying native 720p footage on a native 720p telly.

I've highlighted the bits you must have missed when you read my post. If for some reason you are buying a plasma mainly for use as a computer screen then I agree it's well worth going for a 1920x1080 screen but you seem to think a bigger number automatically means better in all cases. For the majority of content that the majority of people will be watching it's actually preferable to have a 720p screen because there is less upscaling required. Anyway there are other factors in producing a good picture that are much more important than resolution.

You ask if I work in Currys or PC world but they along with the manufacturers are the ones shouting loudest about 1080p to try and sell more tvs and to push LCDs which are cheaper to produce (and pay higher commision).

I'm also quite interested to hear what these "hundreds of different types of HD sources out there" are...

My friend had a 720p plasma , and although SD tv was better than the counterpart LCD unit, everything else was sub par, we mainly played Xbox 360 / PS3 and used the PC on it, Blu Rays were not really up to the job on it either, the unit at the time was a Panasonic, not sure about the model number.

Hundreds of sources, meaning HD Camcorders, Cameras (which have been well over HD for years) , PC's , PS3, Xbox 360, HD media centres, Blu Ray players, HD DVD Players and Laptops to name but a few all of which there are numerous permutations ranging from old to new and all of whcih are capable of displaying in 1080p. Its like buying last weeks loaf of bread, it may very well be edible but its not as tasty as this weeks loaf. ;)

I've seen plenty of crap 1080p telly's, and excellent 720p's but that doesn't make me automatically determine that 1080p is inferior, as that would be specious reasoning.

Also, do you think that 1080p is a high consideration at this price point?

I'm more interested in contrast, colour rendition, and motion handling than the ability to display a few hundred more lines from select devices, personally.

So you think this makes you qualified to denounce all 720p tvs as a waste of money?

Yeah, so many hundreds of sources that you just listed 8, most of which were in my original post.
