Why cold votes?
1 Like #2
Voted hot as this is the Series 4 model and 42" for that price is good, what do you expect? the reason people are voting cold is because it doesn't support 1080p.
#3
well it supports 1080i, 1080p is more noticable on 50" panels, not as much on 42". As previous experience on TVs made me come to that conclusion.

i got this tv last week it is brilliant!

Voted Hot. Good Plasma for the cash.

So what if its not 1080p, These 1080p Fanboys should wake up and smell the coffee. 99% of them dont even now what they are on about! I was in a store a few weeks back looking at a 42 Panasonic and this stupid sales man aproached me and his first words 'you dont want that its not 1080p' So I replied and said ok what does the 'P' stand for? He didnt have a clue, He got his line manager, that Donut didnt havea clue either. Most people dont know what they are selling, or buying. Anyway I just gave then a little Tutorial and told them to **** off! How they looked so stupid realising they have just lost well over a grand in sales as they ran away tail well between their legs.

If you have a HD video source (Sky HD, Freesat HD, Blu-Ray or HD-DVD) then the signal this is sending to your tv has a resolution of 1920 × 1080. Unless you tv has the same resolution as this (full hd) then you are loosing detail. Yes in smaller TV's you may not notice this but on a 42" plasma the difference will be noticable.
A standard definition tv signal has a resolution of 720x576 (414720 total pixels), 720p has 1280x720 (921600 total pixels). Can you tell the difference between these? well if you can then considering that 1080p has 1920x1080 (2073600 total pixels) and the jump from 720p to 1080p is greater than the jump from SD to 720p then you are crazy to say the difference wont be noticed.
I know sky and freesat signals are 1080i but blu-ray and HD-DVD are 1080p.
Dont get me wrong, this is a good tv and a good price and I have voted hot but I think people need to be made aware the facts about HD resolutions rather than just peoples opinions.

It is scaling the image to fit your tv's resolution.

anything 40" & over should be 1080p - 720p is fine for anything else.

voted hot anyway :)

This deal should not be voted hot or cold depending on the resolution. This site comes down to one thing and one thing only, is the price quoted a good deal for THIS item. We are not talking about whether you can get 40 odd inch tele elsewhere with 1080p for an extra 100 quid, IS THIS PRICE GOOD FOR THIS TELE. not interested in the prices or specs of other teles. If you want to vote cold state why. If its cold cause its not 1080p, show us a 1080p tele thats a better deal. A better deal would not be a tele thats an extra £150+ more money. Nor would a better deal be a 42" 1080p budget make. Show me a 1080p good brand at this price, then i will vote cold. However, in the mean time i will vote hot.

Thanks a lot for your deal Zukkyzb

what :?

what :?


If you feed a 720p TV a 1080p image then the TV will downscale the image to fit the resolution of the screen. It is like viewing a photo you have just taken on the screen on the back of your camera. That tiny 2.5" screen doesnt have as many pixels as your digital camera so the picture size is reduced to fit onto the screen.

Why not? The specification of a TV obviously relates to the deal. Should it be voted on the colour of the TV Frame? lol

Agreed people need to know the real facts about HD resolutions. One other thing Sky HD only Broadcasts in 720p or 1080i. The UK has no plans for full 1080p broadcasts anytime in the near future. PS3 games on bluray are only 720p. Granted Movies on Blu-ray and HD-DVD are capable of the full 1080p and look awesome.

I don't know where you got that from but Gran Turismo 5 Prologue on PS3 has Full HD on a Blu-ray Disc.
