Sub Field motion?

Shame it's not full HD.

Sub Field motion?


Yeah - basically it's a technology that predicts where the motion is taking place & reduces blurring & image breakup. Works really well but only seems to be for plasmas, IMO makes them better than even the best LED TV's except the blacks on LED is usually much blacker than plasmas can do.

Anyway - voted hot coz it's a cheap deal for a 50in telly !

I await the 1080p snobs/experts to tear this deal apart very soon ... whilst they sit gazing into their 55" LED flawed monster that cost an arm and a leg and several internal organs.;)

be fair, sarcasm aside, some people, and not just 1 in a million, will be able to see a difference. I say some, not all.

It's an OK deal, though not an absolute screamer. Not voting.

I guess most people don't even realise that the VAST majority of PS3 and Xbox 360 games run at 720p or WORSE. Forza, Wipeout, Gran Turismo are the only games running at 1080P that I can think of. It doesn't matter what setting you have your console set at, that only applies to the dashboard. As soon as a game kick in, bingo, lower res. And no amount of so-called upscaling is going to change that.

This is HOT for use as a telly/games TV. Maybe a bit less so for Bluray which is true 1080P.

And how would anybody make use out of 1080p? They don't broadcast it, you'd only really get the benefit from blu-ray, as said most games are natively 720p

I only tend to buy films and TV programmes on Blu-Ray now, so I can take advantage of Full HD. I bought myself a 22" computer monitor with 2xHDMI so I can plug both my PS3 into it and use it for my laptop as an extended display. 1080p looks awesome.

PCs can output everything in 1080p and I use mine for everything, freeview, freesat, dvd, blu-ray, games, browsing the net all greatly upscalled or natively in 1080p. PCs can easily hack games at 1080p and even hotukdeals right now is in 1080p so some people do see the benefit ;)

The only reason manufacturers make 'hd ready' screens is so they can charge far more for a full HD screen.
Bizarre, as full HD screens cost a tiny percentage more to create (about 5% somewhere I read recently).

Same as graphics cards. A radeon 5950 costs a few pence more than a 5850, yet they can charge a good 30% more. And like HD screens, some people may notice the benefit of a faster gpu, others may not.

There might not be much outputting in 1080p (Xbox360 and Freeview HD don't) but Wii U will output in 1080p apparantly. If you're watching 3D content, surely that would be 1080p?

I have the 1080P version of this, and after 7 months of ownership. I would advise thinking long and hard about this purchase, I kwon the price is very tempting but the model range is plagued with issues, image retention , banding, buzzing, balck levels, sound dropping out for a second for no reason, sync issues on the glasses etc etc.

I spent along time kidding myself I was ok with it, which I am - just Ok with it. I wish I had either not bothered with 3D at all and got a igher quality 2d set, or simply just waited longer.

For those wondering I got the C580 + blu ray player + extra set of glasses (two in total) + shrek films in 3d for £890 (or there abouts).

I dont use the tv for gaming due to the image retention. Im worried about leaving the sky menu up too long as it lingers for a while - much to the complaint of my girlfriend, and I dare not trust anyone else with the set as I fear a pause on sky for longer than say 15 minutes could do serious damage. If you get a chanch look at one in store, ask them to put a bright scene up (such as a shot of the sky during daytime) and look for banding, listen for buzzing and insist on seeing proper 3d content

Limited experience so far but i am messin around with new tv (40RV753) and happened to find outputting the xbox 360 to 720 to the 1080 tv on hdmi totally blew me away (Gears Of War 2).

would be more appropriate to include PLASMA in the title instead of cramming it with some of the other less useful/relevant info (e.g. sub field motion)
#32
Hot, I have one of these. Great 3D, HD freeview, remember to set power saving to low or off.
Wish had a network port to stream to but USB is fine 500GB.

Well, you aren't going to be able to tell the difference as your TV is 720p. Put a 50" 1080p TV next to it with 1080p content and the difference will be clear. 1080p is twice the resolution of 720p.
plus skyhd etc is all in 720p
RUBBISH!

Since when has 1440x1080 been 720p?

While what he is saying is idiotic, so is yours.

You might not be able to tell a difference, but people can. Also, Sky HD is 1080i, not 720p.
