Bet you wouldn't even notice the difference? Unless you are one of those techy types with a magnifier!:thinking:

Even Sky HD is only 1080i. SD picture quality on freeview and normal Sky is excellent. Xbox 360 games look awesome. Uses 600hz sub-field so there is no motion blur like many LCD tv's.

haha actually, i was saying true true about i wouldnt' notice...but then i am one of those techie types -- i had a 1080p 120hz 47" back in the states, so i may actually miss the higher definition, especially when using my laptop on it..... but man, this is a good deal for the size.....ohhhh decisions decisions....

Re the 720p

Like said sky HD is only 1080i ...which is better watched in 720p....so unless you hook up a bluray and sit less than 2 foot from screen then you wont notice dif between 720, 1080i and 1080p.

My mate has a Pio Kuro...only 720p and a few years old now ....but, its the muts.

At this price this is a 42" plasma at 32" budget lcd money.......and budget lcds can be poor .........

And for anyone one wondering what a "Pio Kuro" is? ....well if you don't know, im quite sure you wil really enjoy this TV :-D

I picked up the 50PQ6000 today (same panel i think) from same retailer also listed on here and im very pleased...once id got it up the stairs that is!!!.

Movies cannot be played via usb on this 42" TV. I bought the LG DVX492 hdmi dvd player. (got it for £25 with another marshall ward discount code:thumbsup:). It has usb which can play films directly. Don't know if it will play MKV but there are free conversion software (to Divx etc) available!
#15
Seems good, but basically £400 with delivery so headline somewhat misleading.

sort of a side issue- to watck sky hd then is it better to leave tv on auto and adjust sky hd box to output 720p, or vice versa etc?

Probably little between them. As long as the codes work. Does say 20% for first time customers only!
Don't forget Quidco or Topcashback for extra 8% off at Very!

i was a new customer and the code was being strange, i put a post of how i got the 20% off not sure if it still works though, and i tried via quidco and didnt get anything of this one bacause of the code i used. wasnt sure if this tv had anything the one i was looking at didnt or vise versa?

Have you receieved a confirmation e-mail? That would tell you if the code has been accepted. To use topcashback or quidco I have found it is best to log in to your littlewoods (very) account first but don't put anything in the basket. Then sign in to tcb/quidco and click on link to littlewoods. Then order from that link. (You will already be logged in to very). If the code hasn't worked try re-ordering using this process and cancel the original order.

I don't see much between the 2 sets. The LG uses 600hz sub-field but this can often be the same as 100hz. LG has 2 scart sockets but only one rgb enabled. So basically very similar.

I bought the LG in October from Marshall Ward for £390 inc delivery and got £30 back with Topcashback no problem and wasn't a first time customer!

yes i've got my confirmation email, and because the code was not working unless i put it in the basket and made the account and payed straight away quidco didnt work, and they on quidco that you proble wont get it if you use a code, but i'll remember that for next time

To be ohnest it is pretty noticable IMO, but its a weigh up really, cheapish 1080 screen, or a half decent 720

This TV will play divx through USB after a little bit of tinkering with the manufacturers settings, which turns this from a good deal into a great deal. Nice TV too, I used to have one. :thumbsup:

Even on my small 22" screen the difference between 1080p and 720p is pretty big (unless you sit far away or have bad eyesight)

Not surprising when you consider:

1080p: 2,073,600 pixels
720p: 921,000 pixels
480p: 345,600 pixels

I still voted hot, but I wanted to make the point that 1080p is a big improvement on 720p, in the same way 720p is a big improvement on non HD.

The latter will always be better. 1080p isn't worthless as some people imply (especially if you have average or good eyesight), but it's not the most important factor in pic quality by a long shot - way behind contrast and colour accuracy in particular.

Thats because if a monitor is fed its none native resolution ( ie if the pixels are 1920 x 1080 then its native res it 1920 x 1080 and if its pixels are 1600 x 1200 then its native resolution is the same )

Running anything at NONE native resolution means the picture is blurry and horrible.

If you had a native 1920 x 1080 screen and a native 1280 x 720p screen side by side being fed a blu ray disk to be able to tell the difference easily you would need to be at least 42-50" in size and sat < 1 meter away. At 19" there is no difference in picture its impossible to see.

Im personally using a 2560 x 1600 resolution monitor and gaming on that in comparison to gaming on a 1900 x 1200 is barely any different at similar sizes of screen. With films this is even LESS apparent.

At 42" in size this is one of the best televisions available for watching normal television, dvds, sky and freesat and 1080P is of NO benefit.

Stick some high definition content on IE sky HD / PS3 or xbox 360 and again no advantage due to most games running at 1280 x 720 or less. And when you finally do feed it 1080p by a blu ray the difference is minimal.

^ Yes using the native resolution matters a lot, but the necessary screen size is dependant on where you sit.

My screen may only be 22", but because I sit a few feet away every pixel is very clear.

If you can see every pixel, clearly the amount of pixels is determining the detail you can see.

Err, totally wrong, I think you need to do a bit more research.

purchased :oops::oops:

Saw it in currys at the weekend. I must say that it looked better than the 1080p LCD sitting next to it. colours were more crisp and i preferred the look of the tv. Hopefully i can use my older LG remote for it though as the new ones look terrible!
