If I needed a TV, this is the one I'd buy for this money. Sky HD isnt full 1080p anyway.

600Hz? wow, most tvs are only about 50Hz. This will be awesome for playing games. Heat added!

I believe TVs that can work with 3D glasses need to be able to display content at 100Hz. Does that mean this TV would work with 3D glasses? I presume not, but does anyone know why? Surely if it can show content at 600Hz it could slow to 100Hz too.

Heat added - even cheaper than when i posted it last week. I bought one when it was £510. Superb TV. Highly recommended.

It is 100Hz in practice - the 600hz is just a marketing ploy to sound very good.

No but it is 1080i which is the same resolution as 1080p

Or you could go for £100 more for a 1080p set from RS

He's right in what he said, they're both the same resolution, just one is interlaced and one is progressively scanned.

the only thing preventing converting tvs like this to 3D is the lack of a very simple bluetooth transmitter to transmit instructions to the glasses. They could easily release a device to plug into your tv but they like to screw money out of you.

Not 100% true, it's normally IR and you'd need a synch controller of some sort. And an HDMI 1.4 chipset.
So, yes the panel could probably support 2 x 50Hz feeds but there's a fair but more required for 3D

No....it would be labelled 3D ready and cost 3 times as much!

I'd choose LG plasma over Sammy, I have a 50 inch pk550 720p and it rocks!
#15
That's a big telly for the money therefore a hot deal but then its only a Samsung, I think it's worth spending a bit more for a Panasonic.

At 50" I personally wouldn't go for a 720p TV. I think it needs to be 1080p at that size, unless you are watching from a distance like 12 feet or so.

For the love of god don't buy this. I purchased two of them for £368ish each 11 months ago, both suffer from voltage related issues showing a red haze on the screen, the first was backwards and forwards for 8 weeks until I rejected it under the sale of goods act. The second began to do the same last week and I'm waiting to see what the retailer wants to do as I've got no faith in the product and won't accept a like for like replacement (first one became a Panasonic S20 with major discount for agro).

Thanks for your input. Perhaps you were unlucky as it does have 16 reviews on Amazon, an average of 5/5.

The problem with reviews on Amazon is people tend to write them after a short period of ownership, if you'd asked me what I thought in the first 6 months of ownership i'd have given it a decent rating. Unfortunatly with two sets exhibiting identical faults within 12 months I doubt it's a case of 'luck' and more to do with an underlying fault much as we saw with Thompson/Phillips TV's and dry joints/failed caps on the power boards a few years back. The PSU's buzz louder than most plasma's I've owned, IR's bad but fades - not great for games, but it's the video processing of SD that let's it down most noticably.

I may have just been unlucky but from speaking to the appointed repair agent they regularly replace full PDP's because the YSUS board goes on the 45x ranges.
