Only 720p, 50" 3D would surely want 1080p

Yeah i agree that does seem a bit odd, maybe the product description is wrong on the comet website?

probably just to mess with my mind

I'm probably wrong here but can't you get this tv for sub £600 at dixons with the extra6 (6% off) voucher code and quidco?
#7
I have this and it is fantastic. 3D is very good and the HD although not as crisp as the 1080p LG is still very good.
#8
Isnt this same screen £600 at richer sounds?

Voted cold.

There is nothing hot about a 50" tv that is 720p.

agreed... 37" onwards you need to forget about 720p
#11
I thought that any TV that was 720p max was pre 2009? I'm pretty sure every model at 32" and above is 1080p as standard now, so if this really is only 720p I find it baffling. Even more baffling is the fact that it's one of the latest models with 3D and 50" yet still only manages 720p. I'd contact them first to check if it's an error because I really can't believe a tv of that size only manages 720p tops :/

I bought this tv from recent tesco offer and have to say it is very good. For purists no its not full HD, however sky only broadcast in 720p, so if that is going to be largle what u watch then the tv is very good value for money.

Sky broadcasts at 1080i FYI

Well you can choose 720p or 1080i on the sky hd box. And 1080i is not full fat HD. It is essentially 540 lines shown alternately.

Unless you watch blu-ray you can't receive programmes in full HD anyway so I don't think it really matters

Nonsense (and that goes for the rest that agree with you) Screen resolution depends on viewing distance. Not about screen size.

Sky (along with Virgin Media) broadcast in 1080i for HD broadcasts, not 720p. So a 1080p 1920 x 1080 TV will take advantage and look better at 1080i than 720p. Why are there so many misinformed people on these forums. The majority of people in here clearly know nothing about what they are commenting on.

You can't choose what Sky want to broadcast at, believe me. Sky broadcast at 1080i. Actually, 1080i is essentially 1080p. It has the same resolution of 1920 x 1080. The nonsense about 1080i essentially being 540 is just that, nonsense.

1080i is the same quality as 720p.

any differences are purley for individual tastes

only 1080p is full hd.

A 720p signal is made up of 720 horizontal lines. Each frame is displayed in its entirety on-screen for 1/30th of a second. This is know as progressive scan (hence the 'p'). A 1080i signal comprises 1080 horizontal lines but all the lines are not displayed on-screen simultaneously. Instead, they are interlaced (hence the 'i'), ie every other lines is displayed for 1/60th of a second and then the alternate lines are displayed for 1/60th of a second. So, the frame rate is still 30 frames per second, but each frame is split into two fields, which your brain then puts together subconsciously.

No, 1080i is not the same quality of 720p. You clearly do not know what you are talking about.

Maybe because your projector only has a resolution of 720p? if 1080p, then 1080i 'should' LOOK better than 720p.

surely there would be no noticable difference between 720p and 1080p at the kind of viewing distances you need for a 50" screen - or am I wrong ?

1080p will always look better on any sized screen if viewed from the correct distance. If viewing from the 'wrong' distance for 1080p at 50", then 1080p is pointless if you are not sat close enough to ntice the difference and you would just be paying for something you don't need. That is why 720p sets are still available, because some people sit at the correct distance from a 50" TV to warrant only needing 720p.

You would have to be pretty far away to see no difference at all. But then it has been my experience that everyone has a different perception. At about 5 feet and closer to the tv I can tell a difference but I know people who cant. In fact, when I was choosing my tv I literally needed to get a stick out and point to the damn pixels to my wife on this fugly 50 inch 720p tv and only then did she notice the difference. And now shes probably more picky than me!

I think you mean that in the UK and Europe it'll be 720p/50 frames or 1080i/25 frames per sec

:D
