What is this company like for aftersale's and such just never dealt with them and very tempted with the deal

Btw heat/rep added.

Don't waste your money. This is a very old spec - one of the first "Full" HD sets and technology has moved on a lot since then. You'd be better off with a modern HD Ready set for the same money.

"In my opinion, this TV is a product that has been hastily slapped together as an afterthought by Philips to jump on the 1080p bandwagon, with poor connectivity and picture quality given its price."

Still good for £500 though!

Sorry - which bit is good? A poor performing TV (even by 2007 standards) for £500?
#8
Gets a respectable 8.6/10 here also 8.5/10 (over 42 reviews) here

No, it's not the latest model but hey, for £484.19 after quidco it's not a bad price!

"Input Video Formats - 480p, 720p, 1080i, 480i, 576i, 576p"
Dont fully understand but wouldnt this make it a 1080i only?

No, definately 1080p, the spec just lists all the other formats besides - Philips

Poor performing for its price (prob way over £1000) when tested

True, but it's not £1000 now though....

I have plasma model with Pixel Plus 3 HD and Ambilight and like it a lot. It's not 1080p - it's quite old, but I would recommend Philips for someone who wants to save money. Color quality and fluid motions is not as good as say Samsung or Panasonic, but Philips would be cheaper than competitiors. I really like Pixel Plus (I have 3 this one has 2 - don't know what is the difference) as it scales non HD signals better than any other brand I have seen.

that's what I was implying, if it was £500 when they reviewed it.. it would have been different

My old CRT just died (whites are pink now, no matter what I do with brightness and contrast), so I'm looking for a TV in roughly this size and price range.

But I don't know anything about this stuff. Any specific suggestions please?

Should I worry about the difference between HD Ready and Full HD? Most viewing will be Freeview and maybe downloads, not Blu-Ray (though I suppose I should think about future-proofing for Freeview HD).

Is there a point (screen size) where scaling up SD looks bad?

All my outputs are presently SCART. Are there SCART-to-HDMI leads/boxes, and are they cheap?

Anything I should definitely look out for, or avoid?

Bonus points if I can pick it up from a retailer (Currys, Comet, Tesco, etc).

What about this one (though it's stretching my budget almost to breaking point).

Thanks for any help.

My friend has this set and the picture quality is fantastic, infact one of the best lcd,s ive seen, and ive seen a few. Even on standard definition with the inbuilt freeview its great. At under £600 this is great but under £500 is a steal. Great find.

Some of the comments about this TV are laughable.

I bought this model last year and believe me it matches just about any TV i`ve ever viewed .

At this price buy it you won`t regret it.

I have got this tv aswell, I have had it over a year now. Its picture quality as very good, my blu ray look great. So it is a steal at this price.

No SCART-to-HDMI adaptors as such. It's a totaly different connection type (SCART is mutiple feeds of analogue audio and video signals, HDMI is a single digital feed), so it'd need something to convert SCART into HDMI. There probably are boxes that do this, but any TV should be able to take a SCART input, and a direct SCART > TV input is better than SCART > HDMI > TV. Better processing, less conversions.

Regarding size, something to take into account is that a 32" widescreen TV is about 18% smaller than a 32" 4:3 TV, due to the difference in aspect ratio. Buy somehting big.

Scaling up SD to a 42" TV doesn't look bad. HD really does look a lot better, but it's by no means bad. On a psychological level, the eye tends to prefer size over detail anyway (ever blown a Youtube video up to fullscreen?), so size wins.

HD Ready is a bit old had. cheaper, yeah, but I'd rather have the finer res, even if it isn't noticable when you sit half the room away. It is when you sit nearer. and would you rather buy second-best and have the thought nag you forever?

Thanks dxx. It looks like this deal is dead now. What do you think about the Panasonic (now visible here)? It's only HD Ready, but seems to be well liked in the other thread.
Or can I do better for the same price or less (with or without Full HD)?
