The Samsung PS50B451 is designed for action-packed viewing, and guaranteed to bring a true cinema experience into your home. Crammed with technology to bring you amazing pictures, you can expect riveting impact, sharp, moving images and rich sound for an altogether extraordinary entertainment experience. The Samsung PS50B451 HD ready has a digital tuner for access to Freeview channels.
FilterBright minimizes reflection for the best possible picture in any lighting condition while the 100Hz Smooth Motion Driver eliminates blurring from fast moving scenes. Wide Colour Enhancer 2 provides a multitude of brilliant colours. Its Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) ensures that the picture is free from unwanted noise or defects and that all the details are well expressed, making the picture clean, sharp, and closer to reality.

The dynamic 30000:1 contrast ratio adds every last detail. It sounds great too with SRS TruSurround XT. This virtual surround sound system replicates a 3D sound system and converts non-surround sound sources to stunning effect. The Samsung PS50B451 also uses less power than last years equivalent model. Includes a table top stand.

This television is high definition ready which means it has the ability to display high definition signals with the addition of a separate HD receiver. HD broadcasts are at a much higher resolution than regular analogue or digital broadcasts and have greatly enhanced picture quality. The level of detail is astonishing with clearer, sharper and more vibrant images.

i sell TVs for a living.

blu ray is just about the only thing IN full HD and not all discs are 1080p
So unless you have one or are using the TV as a PC monitor, no higher resolution than 720 is really needed.

freeview,cable and SKY are NOT in HD and not in 720.

DVD not in HD

So I repeat since you're obviously the clueless one about TV resolutions and broadcast standards, unless you have something that outputs at 1080p, such as a blu ray, ps3 or are using the TV as a PC monitor, Full HD is giving you NO BENEFIT.

Guys,
differences of opinions = good
swearing = bad
exchanging insults = not good
offering advice = very good
Please remember that this is a public forum and do not turn a conversation into a slanging match
I thank you both for your input
Personally, a HD TV would suit me fine, and for the price of this TV I reckon its is a great deal. I've no need to spalsh out on a full HD (for reasons given above by slackrat77) and would personally wait a few more years when full HD is cheaper and more stuff is available in this format. But for now, I am happy to watch Sky/DVD's/BluRays on a HD Ready TV

sorry, my bad.

there are currently no 1080p channels in the UK.

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_can%27t_you_broadcast_in_1080p
#7
there are 1080i channels (sky hd, bbc hd, ch4 hd) which will all look better on a 1080p tv than a 720p because a 720p cannot display a 1080 picture without throwing away the extra detail it can't handle.

"i sell tvs for a living" backs up my point ,your a cluesless currys salesman then ?

If people dont have a PS3 , xbox360 , PC outputting 1080p , Upscaling dvd player etc etc , then im sure in the near future they will have , as these will be common in most households , so i would not recommend buying a tv that is NOT full HD . (unless of course i was a currys salesman)

now with this TV being a large 50" , i think if i was "selling tv's" i would be recommending full HD , because you would see a fair difference on a screen so large when using the enevitable full HD resolution

you may as well have gone the next step and recommended a crt to people who are not going to subscribe to a HD service .

well you can keep insulting me i you want but I do know what I'm talking about and DID even before I started with DSGi.

However, I will ALWAYS recommend a full HDTV to anyone who expresses interest in having a Full HD source to put through it, now or in the not too distant future. You make assumptions aswell about how many people will have these items.

Say what you like about the store I work for, but personally I'll always try to find out what a customer will be using their TV for.
its also dependent on budget too.
if a customer just wants a 42" 720p TV for normal SD broadcasts, they arent interested in buying a subscription with SKY HD or Virgin HD, arent interested in upgrading to blu-ray either, then as I keep saying, a 1080p TV isnt going to offer them anything better.

Having said that, if when demonstrated, they decide a blu ray or SKY HD is for them, or if they mention using the TV for PC use or PS3, I will always go over to talking about 1080p sets.
like I said tho it depends on budget.

You're assuming that everyone wants to use their TV to its fullest potential but thats a big assumption.
We sell a lot of HD ready TVs to people with an aerial, standard DVD player and still quite often, a VCR too.

you point of seeing the different when using the inevitable FULL HD res, is true, but not everyone wants SKY HD, not everyone wants a blu ray or PS3.
Personally I only have the PC with blu-ray, but I do have a full HD set for this.
If I didnt, since most of the TV I watch is in standard def or 720p US TV rips in MKV format, a full HD set wouldnt be of benefit.

Full HD is great if you have the potential to get the best from it.
it IS becoming more and more common and the HD ready format in large screens will eventually be phased out, but for now, for someone who wants a TV for the next 3-5 years and according to them, they won't be using it for HD, a 720p format TV is fine.

but not everyone wants SKY HD, not everyone wants a blu ray or PS3.

so do you show them the CRT's first then ?

as they are cheaper and do the job of SD tv a lot lot better than your average plasma/lcd/led ??

thought not , so its all a bit contradicting

no cos we don't sell them anymore!

so how is it contradicting anything?
if a customer has a full HD source or wants to upgrade, thats what we'll show them, full HD tvs.
if they havent and arent interested in upgrading, even when they consider the future, why should I show them a full HD set if they're not going to get the best out of it?

not everyone wants HD, can afford it or is even interested. so for them 1080p is nothing but numbers and a letter.
even 720p!
some folk know exactly what they want and thats even better.

some people assume that when you buy an HD ready TV, you get EVERYTHING in HD.
they're usually the same people as think you need to re-gas a plasma TV.
BUT have just done a 42" panasonic for a middle aged couple. 720p res.
no HD sources, no intentions of upgrading to SKY HD or cable.
no blu ray.

standard Sky and a Video, not even a DVD player.
they wanted the TV cos their son has the same one!

full HD needed? nope

we could argue the merits of full HD versus 720p tvs for people who dont have HD sources, but it seems a bit pointless.
you could keep insulting me and say I'm a crap salesman cos I didnt persuade the couple that they needed full HD even tho they dont have any HD sources at all.

we could...but its all a bit pointless really.
buy this TV if you want.
if you want full HD, but a full HD tv.
very very simple.

maybe you could complain to all manufacturers about 720p tvs

full HD needed? nope


exactly , what they needed was a CRT , did you recommend one ?

NO COS WE DON'T SELL THEM.


either you're very stupid or very very stupid.

they wanted the same Panasonic 42" as their son had. I sold them one.
thats what they asked for. they didnt want a CRT, they wanted a 42" Panasonic Plasma.
they didnt care about 720 or 1080.

are they getting a better picture with their new one?
Dunno, ain't seen the old one.
did they go away happy?
YES.

but maybe you could have sold them something better. like a CRT that we dont stock anymore.

if your going to extremes like you are , in suggesting the most "cost effective"product , you could have said , actually , get your self a crt , far superior image for SD tv .

But was it currys you work for ? there you go , point proved

But if they want a big TV they're not going to be able to buy a 42" CRT :?

Even if they did, they'd never find anything strong enought o take the weight of it :-D

you are such a *****.

so I should've turned down a definite sale for something that we don't sell anymore.
but cos I work for Currys, its to be expected that we'd sell the customer exactly what they asked for?

proving my point that you are indeed a ***** and have no idea what you're talking about.

the best product for them was the one they had chosen.
i didnt try to sell them anything more expensive nor higher spec.
thats probably against what the company would like me to do!
upselling is a part of retail, no getting away from it.

in this case, the customer already had chosen exactly what they wanted.
who am I to argue?
who am i to turn down the sale?


why on earth would any salesman talk a customer with money in their hand, out of a sale in favour of something that the store no longer sells?

am sure the 'partners' at John Lewis wouldnt do that, nor at anywhere else.

do car salesman say when a customer wants to buy one of their cars,
"no, you dont want to buy that car, what you want is to go buy this old one from somewhere else"

no

you're just being a total ***** for the sake of it.

whether I worked for Currys, Comet, John Lewis or anywhere else I'd sell in the same way:-give the customer what they want. show them the options on higher and lower spec, let them decide.

I spent years building custom PCs for people in another retailer. selling TVs is a piece of p*ss.

its all about finding out what the customer wants.

but from your POV, what we should do is, any customer who doesnt have an HD source of any kind, we shouldnt sell them a TV at all?
since we don't sell CRT tvs anymore.
