Great Price.
#2
Who cares if it's not 1080P, this is a great price for a great screen.
#3
You really have to be some kind of idiot to buy a screen of this size that isn't 1920x1080

Colder than cold.
#4
it is not 1080P, so why you are buying it??? waste of money
#5
It all depends where you are sitting. 42" screen, at 720p you shouldn't be sitting closer than 8.5feet, which isn't a problem for me.....

Totally disagree. Above a limit, way below this, you might as well not bother or get 1080.

If your current tv has broken then you can buy second hand or a smaller cheaper non 1080 version.

Let's face it, the only reason you'd buy this is because you cannot afford the same size in 1080. Better to either choose cheaper non 1080 or 1080 in a smaller size.

Ask yourself how much you would pay for this 2nd hand ? Not a lot.

No, you're the idiot not realising that for a brand new TV, at this size and quality, you'd be an idiot to make a comment such as yours. Cold? Get away and learn something before spouting nonsense.

Because hardly anyone uses 1080p content, you waste of space.

You really do have to laugh, though I do feel slightly sorry for you as clearly you have limited intellect.

Spending over £400 notes on a TV that is huge, yet doesn't display full HD at the correct resolution is madness.

I think your going a bit over the top there. Fair enough it doesn't support Full HD but can you find this specific model for a lower price?

I can't help but laugh when I see the 1080p argument. Where does 1080p come from?
1. Bluray - how many people use it?
2. Xbox 360 - A handful of games, most are 720p or HD DVD.
3. PS3 - A couple of games? or streaming (again, far from mainstream)
4. Computer - 1080p though far from common for >90% of users
5. Satellite/cable - NO, 1080i or 720p
I know very few people that have HD sources let alone any need for 1080p over 1080i or 720p. My wife struggles to distinguish SD over HD from 3 meters (no she is not blind - just not that interested) though she can tell on our projector but that is a 120" screen.
So, please, lets note that all the arguing is not helping because most people don't need 1080p, they can't use it for watching freeview, Sky or cable anyway.
Bottom line, hot for me.

Why are you bringing logic to a good senseless debate. Most of us here want the shiniest, greatest,biggest, most feature laden gadget we can have. Whether we need the features or not is immaterial.:whistling:

What is the correct resolution? How many people spend their time watching only 1080P? 90%+ of my tv usage is SD and that will almost always look better on this screen than on a 1080P screen since there is less scaling to be done.
You're talking like 720P is rubbish, its not, with a high definition source it will look high definition, and most on here won't tell the difference because they'll be sitting too far away.

Whichever way you look at it, you can't find this cheaper elsewhere so its still a hot deal. I don't want most of the dvd deals which come up but I don't vote them cold because I don't like them, only if I can find them cheaper.
#17
1080p isn't only about what it's currently used for. Who's to say that a year or two down the line that 1080p content won't be far more common? For example, when the next Xbox or Playstation comes out?

Right now 1080p TV's are pretty competitively priced given that LED TV's are now top of the line, so it may be worth paying the little bit extra just to ensure full compatability with 1080p content at this screen size.

at the risk of spoiling a good argument, could i actually ask a question? :)

all this stuff about 1080p etc, do blu ray discs not use 1080p then? if this set is 720p with a blu ray player attached is this not going to give a 1st class picture quality? would a set with 1080p definitely be better?

i have narrowed my search down to either samsung or panasonic, but that still leaves a hell of a lot of choice. the biggest possible for c. £500.00 but i would rather have say a better quality 37" than an inferior 40-42".

i want quality bluray and DVD and as good a freeview picture as possible.

any comments?

thank you.

Although there will be someone here to tell me I'm talking rubbish, here's my opinion.
Firstly, yes bluray uses 1080p though I doubt you'll distinguish 720p from 1080p. And yes you'll get great bluray, dvd and freeview picture quality(freeview may well look soft if you are used to CRT but a 1080p set isn't going to improve that).
I have Sky HD and HD DVD(yes, the 21st century Betamax) as HD sources which I view on a 720p/1080i compatible 42" Samsung plasma or via my projector, again at 720p or 1080i onto a 120" screen. Picture quality is amazing on both, yes even stretched to a 120" screen. Hence, whilst I admit more is better(ie 1080p) I defy most people to either be unimpressed by 720p or 1080i on a 42" plasma or even spot the difference without staring at the display from 3 feet.

I love my tech, got my first 1080i display in 2001(42" Hitachi Plasma with DVI as HDMI was almost unheard of) and it still looks great. I have no intention of buying into 1080p until there is a move toward common transmission by Sky or Freeview, until then I'm happy.

Upscaled SD and HD don't look much different to me. :thinking:
#23
I disagree that 1080p is a necessity although there is a much stronger case to be had with a 50" set with regard 1080p. I'm just not a fan of Samsung plasmas or LCDs. I had a plasma of theirs and it was terrible. Dead pixel, stuck pixel and really juddering horizontal panning. I've got the Panasonic PX80 and I'm still amazed with it today. A great SD and HD picture and more realistic colours and contrast. I also wouldn't buy a big screen without a 5 year guarantee because repair costs mean they often might as well be chucked away if they go wrong after the guarantee expires unless you're prepared to go through small claims.

waste of money what utter crap. There is difference between a deal and *****.
