Hi, I dont think this is HD ready, it says High Definition but does not say anything about being HD ready in the description
#2
OOops I thought they meant the same thing. I'll change where I have written HD ready in the description to high definition, as described on their website. What is the difference though?

I'm not certain but I think HD means that it supports HD resolutions but the tv may not have HD inputs and HD-ready means that there are HD inputs.

I know HD ready means it usually has to have resolution of at least 720 in the 2nd part of the resolution, so it might be but I just thought as currys description does not say HD ready better to be aware. Im in touch with someone on AV Forums to ask if its HD Ready, will post back here if I get a reply. Cant see any logo on the TV pics to say HD ready although might be a poor scan

HD Ready or not?
The HD Ready logo appears on all TV screens and projectors that are compatible with HDTV signals. HD Ready screens must meet the following specification: Minimum 720 vertical lines (the latter figure when a resolution is written out, e.g. 1280 x 720)
Analogue component video and either
DVI or HDMI inputs
Support for HDCP content protection
Able to display 720p
(1280 x 720 at 50Hz and 60Hz progressive)
Able to display 1080i
(1920 x 1080 at 50Hz and 60Hz interlaced)

It is HD Ready, it has the high-def resoultion and the HD inputs (HDMI with HDCP). Plus it says it the description it is HD Ready, if it wasn't you would be able to get a efund under the Trade Descriptions act.

I must be going blind then, where in the description does it say HD Ready?
#7
According to Currys spec it got resolution of 1280x720. They don't say it explicitly, you need to do some math :)
Picture Quality 921600 pixels, which is 1280x720.
#8
it says HD Ready in the middle of the TV, i think that must mean its HD Ready and it appears to have HDMI connectivity and is HDCP enabled but worth checking with currys prior to buying
#9
I knew about the resolution thing (720 mininmum) but was cautious as usually it will say HD Ready, shame on you currys. So it is HD Ready. Apologies for any confusion!
#10
Nice spot.This has finally tempted me into getting an HD set.......just need to convince the better half now..:p
Has anyone found a refresh time for the image.......I believe u need one of about 8ms so that fast moving images aren't blurred?:geek:
#11
Snookums beat me to it ... anyone know the the response time for this ?
Not a bad price if it has DVI and HDMI input with a decent refesh rate.

Also, can you return the set to a local store if you needed to ?

Yep, it says it across the front on the TV. Also at sister company Dixon's website it clearly states that it is HD Ready:

You'll find it hard to find a cheaper 27'' HD Ready LCD TV than this. Featuring HDMI digital connectivity, DVI digital connectivity with HDCP and a stylish design with table top stand.

The Samsung will hose the Pentus. Not surprising as, from Curries at least, it's more than twice the price!

If you're serious about the Samsung, you can get this:

http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/4-/924621/Samsung_26_LE26R74BDX_XEU_Freeview_HD_Ready_LCD_TV/Product.html

It's a more recent model, with freeview etc. and costs the princely sum of £579.

So, in summary the Samsung will be a superior television both in aesthetics and visually and most likely audibly. However, it costs a whopping £240 more, so it should!

But in the Pentus' favour, it's 1" bigger!

I would not hesitate to get the Pentus at that price!

Although, Pentus might look a bit like Penis from a distance...

i can get the samsung for £450.... so im undeiced

is the samsung a betta TV ???

lol thekanester :giggle:

For £450, that's a good deal, but it's still £185 more expensive, so merits a little thought...

Hmm....if it was a first TV for my living room, then no question get the Samsung as it's just better and looks it too.

If it's for the bedroom then get the Pentus.

IMHO.
#18
thanks for your advise....

iv opted for the samsung :s

i know this samsung allows you to connect to PC and an xbox, but i wasnt sure wiv the pentus

i had to order before the end of the night as the 10% was going 2 run out !!

i didnt think any 1 was gonna reply bk, the forum recent has been useless (apart from one or 2) for people helping others out with technical/advice.........it used to be very helpfull

Good choice. We have the 32" version of the Samsung, which we use exclusively for XBox 360 and it's simply fantastic, so you won't be disappointed!

A point of note though the quality of the picture through VGA is far better than though component. Component colours are nicer; more saturated and pleasing, but there's quite a bit of bleed, so we stick with the VGA input. So, to get the most out of the Sammy, get an XBox VGA cable.
