Good price but the LG PK350 was cheaper and better spec(full 1080). This is still hot though.

It might have been a contender for me if the connectivity was better:

1 x digital optical audio output
1 x headphone port
SCART connectors 1

2 Hdmi ports and no vga input??.. thats pretty bad.

Ive not voted either way.

What if you are not watching Full HD material? Size alone has nothing to do resolution.

Clearly shows how little you know on the subject. While I'm not saying this is a good/bad TV, no size is to big for HD Ready. TV size alone has nothing to do with resolution. Why do people like you post things like this when you obviously don't know what you are talking about.

Those spec numbers have nothing to do with it, Panasonic's 720p plasmas have had nothing but excellent reviews since they came out - and many times in several independent reviews they beat those so-called superior 1080p TVs for picture quality.

My thing with Plasmas is the energy consumption, the buzz they can give off and there are recent reports of black levels getting poorer over time, I know the energy consumption has been getting better but I still hear people complain about the mosquito noise and that black issue kind of hits the plasma's one trumph card pretty hard for me.

Amazon have a 50" Panasonic TX-P50S20B with HD Freeview @ £599.99 which is very tempting at the moment.
The higher spec 50" Panasonic TX-P50G20B with HD Freeview and FreeSat is also a tempting £799.99
(oh & both are 1080p for the spec sheet jockeys)

Only downside is reflective screen and (if it bothers you) only 2 x hdmi connections. Watching sport on HD is great, no motion blur, but I am talking about the 42" version of this model.

The rubbish that is spouted on here about 1080 HD is a joke. I suggest that people actually view the TV's before they make uninformed comments. I went to buy a 1080 full HD set but preferred the picture quality on this for the money I was prepared to pay . Dont be swayed that 1080 full HD is definitely better, decide with your own eyes before spending your hard earned cash. :)

OK, if you say so, be happy with 50" and no option of Full HD material.

.....and when reviews repeatedly say this 720p HD TV puts out a better image on the screen than your 'full HD' TV's, what then?
In practical terms that spec means nothing if the Panny's image is better.

Regardless, the native resolution is 720p, so i can only display 720p even if its the worlds best 720p picture it still cannot display 1080p and as such a TV with a native 1080p resolution (providing its a decent TV) should out perform image quality, and i cant seem to find a professional review stating what you have said, only bias owners comments who are comparing it against nothing but than what they think.

my point is that why wouldn't anyone want a FUll HD set if they can get it, i refuse to believe you turn down a Full HD set for this HD Ready set on the basis that a few owners reviews state its better than Full HD, has anyone actually compared a 1080p source on this set against another set with 1080p resolution?

As I said, you clearly don't know what you are talking about. Also I don't own nor not wanting to own this TV or a TV of this size, so why would I be happy with it? Please think before posting.

Maybe some people want 50" sets but don't have the money to afford 1080p at 50". Or their viewing distance might suit 720p better. Whats the point in buying 1080p if you are not going to benefit from it due to your viewing distance.

Er, that is the point.....'should' does not always equate to 'does'.
So you can be left waving a spec sheet whilst everyone else can actually see a better imagine on the 720p set.

haritori
and i cant seem to find a professional review stating what you have said, only bias owners comments who are comparing it against nothing but than what they think.

You should try harder, for instance Panasonic 720p sets won the Which award for image quality 3 years running (and yes that included being set against 1080p sets).

You're shifting the goal posts and inventing your own scenario, the fact is there were several awards for the 720p Pioneer & Panasonic sets, in comparison to 1080p sets.
#16
I am not telling anyone what they should buy, or shifting any goalposts, jebus buy it if you want too, my point is why would you pay for a 720p set when for the same price you can get a 1080p set which will have finer detail?

its my opinion that's all, doesn't mean I don't know what I am talking about, just means i simply think 50" is too big of a screen size to not have 1080p. if you cant accept that my opinion is actually valid then dont, but the heat of this deal goes to show its not exactly brilliant is it?

Your opinion is NOT valid because you don't know what you are talking about.

Screen size alone has nothing to do with resolution, so where are you getting 50" is to big not to have 1080p from? It all depends on VIEWING DISTANCE in relation to TV size and nothing to do with what you think is to big.

I bet you are one of these people that think 1080p on anything under 42" is useless?

I have a lot of haters I think thats part of the reason its not that hot lol

I dont understand why everyone is getting so up themselfs, personally i think all TV`s shoudl be 1080p but 50" i personally believe is too big to justify 720p only. simple fact is 1080p is a higher resolution no matter where you sit or how you look at it its a better resolution its finer detail and its better than 720p no matte rhow good that 720p is its still a lower less clarity detail resolution, jebus, why not go have a 320x480 and stick it too your face then tell me its better than 1080p!!

now chit chat away, last post i am making as i am bored with it now.

@feeder16 i dont hate, just my opinion that i thought 50" should be justified by 1080p at the price it was, but i seem to upset some people apparently i have no idea what i am talking about, but its only my opinion, never stated that anyone must do anything. bunch of losers if they hate though mate.

Again, quite clearly you don't know what you are talking about. There is so much wrong with what you are saying that it's pointless pointing them out if you are just going to put your hands in your ears and go blah blah, not listening I know what I'm talking about.

If you don't understand about size and resolution, don't pretend you do and post about it, because you are just giving people who don't know about it the wrong impression that you do.
