I would say that if your looking for picture quality then don't think price, think brand and reviews.

I am no expert though but I wouldn't buy a 42" TV that was not 1080p.

Have a good search about for reviews and don't buy just on price.

If this tv was 1080p you would not notice any difference from what you wanna use it for so if u want a cheap 42" i don't think you'd be disappointed
#10
like goderic says, different brands are better but if you are on a budget this is hot
#11
Great price if you mostly watch DVD's, Sky and freeview. Would be too jerky for me when watching Bluray films.

Amazing price for size/spec. Hot! :thumbsup:

Great spot OP.
#12
the contrast ratio seems very poor. is it really only 1500:1?
#13
Great size/price but like other posters, I dont know if it would be worth paying a little extra for something slightly better.
#14
this tv is too cheap to be good,
compare a bush or a sanyo as they similar quality,
compare them to a LGor sammy and there is major difference in quality.
they can have the same specs but dont mean they look as good,there is alot more to a tv than res/contrast/refresh rate
#15
Our one daughter has the 37inch of this on the wall in her room and its amazing for the price its that good I'm buying this for the other daughter i have a 42and a 47 inch Toshiba 1080p set and the picture on them is far better but they where 3 times the price but the 37inch we have is very good does 1080i and is fantastic it has all the best features like picture in picture topup tv card slot the picture on this is way better than my grandmothers 42inch 1080p LG and that was twice the price.

For the people banging on about 1080p you will not see the difference with 1080p Vs 1080i even watching a blue-ray disc as its that small and at this price your not going to get a 1080p branded screen so take your pick at least £650 for a decent name 1080p set or this for half the price that for everyday viewing will be great and sky hd is only broadcast in 720p which this tv does ive also tried blue-ray through the 37inch in the girls bedroom and its great infact its that good if i sat you in front of 2 sets this one and a 1080p (not one that supports 24fps)both playing the same blue-ray film i doubt you would tell which was which.

This tv is ideal for the kids bedrooms for them to play the Xboxes and ps3 on what gets me is the ignorance of some of the people on here banging on about blueray and it being jerky on this set will yes it will be and it will be on a lot of the top brand tv's because it runs at 24fps and most 1080p TVs cant deal with the 24fps so they change the fps to what the can deal with hence the jerking so it has nothing to do with price or make mine can but the reason is i knew what i needed and bought the right sets so before comeing on here spouting rubbish at least know your facts because you end up looking daft when you don't and like i said i have 2 Toshiba's and a Panasonic all 1080p and a lot more money than this but i also have a 37inch one of these in the girls room and it holds its own and friends have even commented on the quality of the set and picture and the reviews on amazon say the same.

deap breath polly69 ;)

When you say Bluray will be jerky will it be noticeably so or still easily watchable? Was thinking of ordering this (most of the comments on here seem to be from 'tv enthusiasts') but will want it for blu ray. I guess I could always send it back within 7 days but postage costs would be pretty awesome.
#17
Its the epitome of Fugley!!
#18
its also not £348 its £353 as large electical items do not qualify for supersaver so the post needs changing to highlight the £5 postage charge. Order Total: £353.87

Ps3 is known to produce jerky images on most sets that cant handle 24fps i think sony where doing a update to try to sort this but with normal blueray its fine as ive played a blueray 1080p rip through the daugters pc into the tv and it was fine good picture no jerking.

Im a enthusiast and have all the latest audio and visual toys but like i said i got the 37inch for the girls bedroom for her to watch cable and play her games on and her pc and this tv for the money has been fantastic take no notice of these on here take the advice of someone that owns one for this money you wont find nothing to touch it just look at the 10+ reviews on amazon from people that own them no one has a bad thing to say i have one and a friend was that impressed he also bought one from amazon and he has it in the lounge and loves it people on here always say thing like its rubbish its not 1080p but 99% of them dont know what it is.

im so temted to get this then again i dont mind spending a little more and getting somthing better can anyone show me what sort of a bargain i could get for a few more quid? i would like to go for this then if i dont like it i would send it back but i wonder how much it would cost to send back any ideas? also i would mainly use it for my pc

You have 2 choices get this decent 42inch from a great company when things go wrong at a low price or pay £100s more for a good make dont think spending another £50 will get you something better because it wont to get a decent 42inch 1080p set you need to spend at least £700 but i would look towards the £1000.

At this price you cant go wrong.

Thank you. Rep added. :thumbsup:

My brother purchased a bargain set for his room a year or so ago and has no complaints. It received around a -200 score on here, most people voting it cold because of the brand it seems yet it's been entirely satisfactory.

Can CRT support 24fps as I played a blu ray through our CRT TV and it was reasonable enough.

That's good for a LCD. It's also honest - most LCD manufacturers are dishonest, and substitute the worthless "dynamic" contrast ratio for the real thing.

If contrast is important to you, buy a plasma.

there is a big difference of 1080p and 1080i,i can tell the difference on mine and i have 2 of the same tv.
if your mum or whoever says they got an lg thats 1080p that plays bluray and consoels worse then its set up wrong.
i have no issues with my set and would consider myself as an enthusiast.
i would like to know how many customers who put reviews on tvs have had a HD 1080P set prior as my mum thought there 1080p was good until they saw mine,which is alot better colours and quality.
also anyone considering this,think how close u sit to it as it plays a major part in the screen size you should choose.

EXPLANATION OF THE DIFFERENCE

In 1080i each frame of video is sent or displayed in alternative fields. The fields in 1080i are composed of 540 rows of pixels or lines of pixels running from the top to the bottom of the screen, with the odd fields displayed first and the even fields displayed second. Together, both fields create a full frame, made up of all 1,080 pixel rows or lines, every 30th of a second.

In 1080p, each frame of video is sent or displayed progressively. This means that both the odd and even fields (all 1,080 pixel rows or pixel lines) that make up the full frame are displayed together. This results in a smoother looking image, with less motion artifacts and jagged edges.

on what planet is "Resolution: 1366 x 768" HD-ready ?

On this one :-)
HD ready simply means >720 pixels vertical, so even 1024*768 screens qualify.

To be honest I have been put of this LCD big time all you got to do. Is go to YouTube and type in polaroid 42" see the comments and some videos i'm going to stick to a make that makes Tv's not cameras!!!!

You have a CRT which is HD? Unless you bought one of the early (& very expensive) HD CRT's then you cannot get Blu-rays full potential from your TV.

well my 1080p toshiba lcd has a 18000:1 contrast ratio which isn't "dynamic" n i'm sure you would be able to tell the difference between the two tv's!!!

The 37" Regza model? That's dynamic. Toshiba don't even bother reporting the static contrast for their LCDs, so if there's a contrast ratio on the spec sheet, it's dynamic. Almost all the other manufacturers do the same.

18000:1 is impossible for a LCD. Not even remotely close. As far as I know, the highest contrast ever independently measured on a LCD was 2900:1, and most are half that.
