Panasonic TH-50PX8B 50" Plasma TV £699.99

Please be nice my first post, this TV may be 720, but its at least £100 cheaper than else where.

Every image is expressive from bright scenes, such as scorching desert landscapes, to dark cave scenes. Contrast is enhanced by the new Real Black Drive system (a pre-discharge control system) and a higher base luminance from improvements made to the panel production process. The high contrast creates deep, robust blacks and reproduces scenes with a delicate balance of light and shadow.

You can enjoy beautiful cinematic reproduction of movie images. The images that are recorded onto movie film at 24 frames per second (fps) are reproduced at two times that speed by 24p Playback. This achieves film-like reproduction than with the 2:3 processing method.

3,072 Equivalent Steps of Gradation lends natural expression to images such as sunsets. VIERA's large colour space covers 110% of the HDTV colour standard. This wide gamut has been achieved by an advanced panel structure and a newly developed filter, which produce richer, more vivid colouring.

In addition to brilliant picture quality, VIERA models offer the easy operation made possible by VIERA Link and the SD card slot. VIERA Link lets you operate other connected Panasonic AV components using only the VIERA TV's remote control unit.


HD Ready 720p Built-in digital TV Tuner 10,000 : 1 contrast ratio V Real Pro 3 Image technology NICAM Stereo Sound 3 x HDMI connection 2 x SCART connection 1 x component connection SD Card reader for photos Viera Link - 1 remote for all components

Did anybody mention it isn't full HD yet?

I'd get a 1080p one myself, in fact I did.

it does it all depend greatly on your requirements though.

Get yourself an Egg card for 2.5% off too, making this £682.49'ish.

If you're just going to watch Blue Ray movies then get a 1080p tv, but if its just for PS3/Xbox360 games and freesat/sky hd 720p is all you need.

I would agree about the 1080p, but with most 50 inch Panasonics nearly double the price for the 1080p version, it came down to my limited budget in the end. This TV was £800 at the beginning of this week.

Also as posts before use the DELTV for free delivery to get it at £699.

Strange to single out Blu Ray as 1080p only. The 360 outputs perfectly well at 1080p, including the HD-DVD addon. You are right in the fact it solely depends on your budget and your requirements.

What is better 720p or 1080i ? Can anyone shed some light?

its the same thing i stands for vertical lines p stands for horizontal lines

a full hd set is 1080p x 1980i

all hd channels on tv are broadcast at 1080i

you'll need a blueray palyer to get 1080p source.


got it ?:thumbsup:

So could anyone please explain the answer to my question, which is best 720p or 1080i ?
#30
not worth the cash, its the very budget model where the colours arent as good and the picture aint as sharp plus at this size 1080p is a must. you'd be better getting off the series 4 samsung plasma if you really dont mind about the 1080p thing, better tv and around the same or less

That is a very good question and has most of the videophiles divided in opinion.

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=720p+vs+1080i

Here's the result on a Google search on the subject. Technically 1080i is better quality since it's more pixels, but some argue that because of the way that 1080i works (interlaced frames), 720p is a better quality since it's progressive - in other words, every single frame is 1280 x 720 pixels and there's no deinterlacing needed.

Some TVs do 1080i better than others and it's the reason why there's such a mixed bag of opinion. In the case of this TV, it's irrelevent - it can do neither without having to downscale the image since the panel isn't big enough, but that won't mean the image it will display will suffer.

My best advice is to try both and choose for yourself - after all, if it's looks good to you then that's all that matters!

depends on the TV, on a lot of non 1080p HDTVs 720p looks better. there are a few where 1080i looks better, for instance my pioneer looks sharper in 1080i even though it aint even close to its native resolution. personally i'd compare myself, see what looks the best to you
#33
Yes exactly what the last 2 replies have said. Go & look at the sets doing what you want them to do & decide which works best for you. It really is impossible to give a simple "one answer fits all".
#34
Feed your 768p panel a 720p source it will have to upscale the picture to fit. Feed a 768p panel a 1080i source it will have to de-interlace it and then downscale to 768p. 1080i should be better so long as your tv is good at de-interlacing, ie not a **** telly.
#35
720p looks better with fast on screen action, ie video games, some sport.
1080i looks better (more pixels) with normal TV viewing like natural history etc.

Obviously 1080p is the best if you can afford it.
#36
Can somebody actually give a review on this plasma tv? (i.e) production quality, sound, color etc. I have been searching for its review online but can't seem to find it. I am considering buying it too but I need a review. And one will be truly appreciated here:thumbsup:
