#4

#5

Can you buy an extended warantee with Tesco?
#6

#8
if tesco are advertising this as a full HD set and its not...surely thats against the law. false advertising?

Full HD 1080p Yes
Resolution 1280x720
#9

This isn't making any sense, here's some of the specs from Tesco's site:

Built-in Freeview Yes
Built-in Freeview HD No
Display Type Plasma
Dlna Compliant No
Full HD 1080p Yes
HD Ready Yes
HDMI Connections 3
Is 3D Yes
Picture Frequency in Hz 600
Resolution 1280x720
True 24p Cinema Playback Yes

Surely they wouldn't manufacture a 3D TV which wasn't 1080? Or is that somehow related to how they claim 600Hz - aren't most 3D TV's 200Hz or thereabouts? Certainly I didn't see 600Hz on any of the TVs that were on offer before Xmas..

1365x768 pixel resolution on comet website and no hd tuner
#12

You're right there... 600hz is low for a plasma.

According to the manual this is 1080p - it also supports a fantastic range of media on usb - including .mkv and divx hd.

600HZ low for a plasma?? are you joking???

This was advertised other day and i looked at the time on the net and found this tv to not be 1080p (unless nearly all of them are wrong).
If full Hd its a stonker of a deal. but not sure.

It's not 1080p hasn't this debate surface before - it can handle 1080p inputs but not display them

Full HD 1080p Yes
Resolution 1280x720


I think they are trying to say "it supports a 1080p input"
#18
It's HD Ready, not Full HD/1080p.

If I was paying this amount of money, I'd certainly expect 1080p.
#19
Its a shame this isn't 1080p.. Has this definately been confirmed then? I was very close to ordering it due to Tesco's mis-advertising/lying! haha

Is there a massive noticable difference between 1365 x 768 and 1080p?

I would say so.
Definitely on a 50" TV.

1080p has almost double the amount of pixels as 720p.

I don't see why a manufacturer would make a 3DTV with such low specs.
#23
Yep speaking from having a 50" 1080p in my front room there is a vast amount of difference. Most notible on the PS3 ;-)

Having seen this set in the "flesh", I cannot recommend it. 1080p is, at least in my opinion, a necessity at this size, though some people won't agree obviously! I'd recommend spending a little more on a better set
#25
Up to 42 720p is more than adequate I reckon, any higher and 1080p comes into its own...
#26
value for the money, but not as good as c700 model
#27
A quick search on Google gets a manual for this TV... says in it 1360x768, i'd get a 1080p one if i was going for this size of screen

This is as close a model number as I could find on the Samsung website. Doubt it helps?

What a deal. Tv, glasses and blu-ray.

But no blu-ray player.

Greeeeeaaaaaatttttt...
#30
remember the days when people were bothered about good quality picture and colours, not how many pixels?

Nonsesne. It's all about viewing distance. You can't state what you did without knowing ones viewing distance. Screen size alone has nothing to do with resolution.
#32
What's better then, this TV from 6foot or further away?
#33
Ahh one can only dream ;-(

so it is Full HD or HD ready - would like to be sure?

Can you buy an extended warantee with Tesco?

Yes, either when buying it through Tesco Direct or you can buy the warranty from a store.

3 Years - £91.97
5 Years - £167.97

Warranty includes "covers your product against electrical or mechanical breakdown, or breakdown as a result of an accident."
#35
more to the point whats the point in giving you 3d glasses and film without a player to play it on ?

Given that you have 1 year warranty, this only covers two years. Surely a replacement would be even cheaper by then, say 400 pounds. So this set has a 10% chance of failing each year? That's not terrible, but it is not really quality either.

Whats' the point of selling a computer keyboard with no computer to plug it into?

What a ridiculous question.

Mixed reviews on this set, I certainly wouldn't buy one without seeing it in action first.

cold! 50inc LG about 500 all over the UK!
