I might be wrong, but when you click on 'Special Offers' next to this set, it appears to offer a 3 year warranty:

"Free 3 year warranty via leaflet when you buy this TV or any one of the TVs listed below. Leaflet will be posted to you once your order is confirmed. Offer ends 18th January 2008."

This is one of the most highly rated plasmas and is a very good deal at this price. Dixons also do this tv at the same price and would be cheaper using the GIMME5 code, but it appears to be out of stock for most people.

I think you'll find it does display 720p, and can in fact accept a 1080p input at 24 fps which it scales down.

You need to check your facts before commenting and voting.:whistling:

This set has won countless awards and is the best reviewed plasma in this price range.

Try and remember, you're voting on the deal, i.e. can you find the exact same deal elsewhere for a cheaper price.

Actually, he's right. To "display at 720p" means to physically have 1280*720 pixels (although it still counts as HD Ready, cos vertical is >719). Scaling is something else entirely, every modern TV can do that.

Not that it matters of course, the resolution this has is plenty for a 42", and it has excellent picture quality

720p is 1280x720 pixels, if the panel is 1024x720 then it will be scaling down the 720p.

Rather annoyingly HD compliance is measured by the number of lines, a throw back from the analogue age where screens had no measurable horizontal resolution. It has worked as a convenient way for plasma screen manufacturers to overcome the problem of making really small plasma cells. By lowering the horizontal resolution they are able to make wider cells.

The problem is that the screen will not be capable of showing the original HD source at the native resolution. Only the vertical will be native the horizontal will be scaled as a 1280 pixel width is required to see a direct 1:1 relationship with the original source. Because the vertical resolution meets the required specification they can claim HD and your average consumer is none the wiser.

This down side does mean that SD content looks quite good on a plasma with the low resolution. but means that the picture will not be as sharp as one that has the proper native resolution of 1280x720. I personally much prefer the colour of a plasma to that of an LCD and would like to buy a new one to replace my aging (5 years old) 50" pioneer plasma with something HD. But what is stopping me is this issue exactly. :thinking:

Doesn't really matter, as there's next to no 720p content out there anyway (xbox live is the only major one). Everything else is 1080i/p: Bluray, HDDVD, Sky HD, BBC HD, etc. Whether you have 1280*720 or 1024*768 it'll be downscaling anything you feed it.

I paid £830 delivered no pedestal, wall mounted for one with John Lewis price matched, 5 year warranty in around March. Then I bought another one for my father for £750 pedestal included back in December at Richer Sounds picked it up myself.

PS3 looks superb on it.

i paid £1000 for this tv with a panny dvd recorder last year, if ur in the market for a tv at this price range then go for this, at this price u can't go wrong, if there is a better tv at the price i don't know where it is. picture with sky is excellent, have'nt taken the plunge to sky hd as few channels and the extra £10/month (they get enough allready) but i'll bet the picture would be fantastic with this set.

i agree, probably someone who thinks lcd tv's are better because some are native 1920x1080....my pioneer kuro 42in only has a resolution of 1024x768 but its picture imo and expert reviewers opnions (see online, what hifi, stuff, cnet, etc) is better than any other tv up to 42in in size....you need to see tv's side by side for a proper comparison.....also depends what sources you are using as well......imo plasma's are miles better for standard definition, sports/motion, dvd, blacks, depth of colour...tho LCD's are getting better
this panasonic is an extremely good tv and is a steal....
this is one of the best 40-42in tv's you can buy....i only know this im looking for a plasma for the bedroom but will probably opt for the smaller but crucially lighter 37in panasonic...im not impressed with msot lcd's over 37in (the only lcd's id even consider are the panasonic 37in and loewe 37 which are pretty good, tho the latter is way overpriced imo)
this set has won alot of awards, i know because i nearly bought it, but opted for the better but much more expensive pioneer kuro:-
