Its a Tevion with an LG Panel. Pretty sure already posted

This is not the highest resolution available. It is 1080p. In Japan 4320P exists, and you can get upscalers to handle that. Sharp make the displays.
1080P is the max current uk consumer products churn out, until the manufacturers realise everyone is making 1080p sets and try to distinguish themselves apart.

Many graphics cards and home media PC's,games can handle more than 1920x1080

To be fair, 1080p is the highest resolution you'll be feeding a TV for a while. Confusing TV broadcasts with computer output resolution is misleading, you won't find much video higher than 1920x1080 outside digital cinemas (and you certainly won't get your hands on that video either!

Main discussion about this TV is at:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?p=473489

It's main fault as far as I'm concerned is the fact that it's not got component inputs - that rules out basic connection to an xbox 360 (and the HD-DVD goodness that entails)

The file size makes 4320P using native res files a nightmare. We won't see much beyond 1080i/1080p for a while.

Re the above messages. Does this make it a good buy or not?.

Cheers.

Thats a NO Clint Thrust.

Hold up a bit - no-one actually knows if this is a good deal or not. The ONLY Thing it's lacking that I can see is component input, which isn't the end of the world. It's a great price and it's the best technology we're going to see in this country for a long time.

Once some reviews of the picture quality come in, an informed decision can come in. The great point however is that Aldi will take it back with no quibbles if you decide (quickly) that you don't like it.

Oh, and another point about the resolution (which really is a non-issue, it should be ignored). From more than 8' from the screen, the human eye will struggle to make much use of this resolution anyway, let alone higher. There's a very valid argument that 768p is just as good as 1080p for most home environments.

I think you will confuse newbies with this sort of talk. 1080P is the current highest resolution for mainstream commercial HD-DVD and Blu-ray discs; I’m not sure if there are any TV broadcasts in 1080P, they are 1080i and 720P I believe.
Not all HD video players can even output 1080P at the moment although that may well change. So for the foreseeable future 1080P is THE format for HD TV if you want the highest resolution and some degree of future proofing. Note: for future proofing the issue will be as much about the interface as the panel resolution.

For higher definition than 1080P with games you are looking at using monitors rather than TVs. I think it’s unlikely that the TV market will move to higher resolution than 1080P just to support HD gaming. Although there’s no reason for high end TVs for gamers not to show up; expect very high end prices and not Aldi prices. If you want beyond 1080P for gaming then buy a 30” TFT for over a grand.

Going above 1080P for home TVs does seem unnecessary judging by most comments that I’ve read. The improving quality available at 1080P with future LCD, Plasma etc screens will make this TV seem old hat, not the resolution.
Don’t forget that even £2,000+ HD camcorders only shoot in 1080i, so 1080P is really still the future in many ways and for terrestrial broadcasting probably a long way away.

So would this not be a good TV to play your PS3 or 360 on then ?

It depends on what connector you are using and which of the TV's inputs support 1080P. If the VGA supports 1080P then that will be fine for the XBox. The HDMI should support 1080P so will be fine for the PS3.
#12
Yeah i was thinking that, just not sure if the scarts support 1080p, do they do a 360 to HDMI lead yet ?

I don’t think that is the point. They are merely informing you that the bar has already been raised.
Personally, I wouldn’t pay £1100 for a Tevion.
Remember, in 12months, (if you came to sell it) the decent brands will be cheaper than this, and you will struggle to sell it for £600.

Scart is for SD only, no HD.

But has the bar actually been raised! If you look at the cost to broadcasters for moving to HD, they aren’t likely to want to jump beyond 1080P in the near future and is it really needed for home TV use? If the footage you watch is limited to 1080P or below then there’s not much to be gained in moving to a higher resolution TV. I suppose Hollywood may want to jump beyond 1080P at some point.

It’s been stated by certain sources that there’s more to be gained by increasing the frame rate rather than the resolution when it comes to film. 100 frames per second is alleged to be awesome. So maybe that’s where the future lies……eventually:giggle:

I think 1080P is fine too tbh. And everything improves. I just think (IMO) that shelling out £1100 for something branded by Tevion is a little foolish :-(

I agree and the lack of component inputs is off putting. You can pick up a 42" Sharp for the same money and possibly even a Samsung if you shop around.

marketing, marketing, marketing - it makes the world go round.

Have a look at this chart and see if you'll notice any difference at your viewing distance. Chances are you'll need a 50"+ screen and then some or you'll be hard pressed to see the difference at the average viewing distance.

[SIZE=2]That chart is a little hard to interpret - is it saying that at [/SIZE][SIZE=2]47", you'd need to stand 7 feet or closer to the TV to get any real benefit from 1080p (over 720p), or 9' from a 720p or 14' from a SD TV (each in relation to their immediate lower qualities)?[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Oddly I'd be 10' from a TV, putting me in 480p territory?![/SIZE]
