These comments just shows we have a civilisation of dumb asses living amongst us.

We an one idiot voting cold because it's an iPhone, another one because its not 1080p despite a £279 price tag on a 50" plasma, another votes cold for not knowing anything about resolution.

Don't you have anything better to do, join the army or something or just get busy.

And another who doesn't read the post to realise it is a 43" and not a 50" before criticising.

Better than the old Sainsbury's deal at 299, and Comet etc who are all in the £300's,

Shame it doesn't have Freeview HD, I'd snap it up.

Queue the usual "cold not full hd" comments, but I'd just thought I'd add this consumes roughly twice the energy as your average full HD 42" LED-Backlit LCD. I personally prefer the colours on plasma, but the energy usage might be something to take into consideration...

Most of these plasmas are 1024x768 using oblong pixels so that's all right then.

Why are these so cheap now?

And those of you complaining about no 1080p, as far as I know none of the HD channels are at that resolution. I know blu-rays won't look as good, but that's not a common occurance for me anyway.

Yep they use elongated pixels (baffles me why they never moved to using square ones as they do on 1080p sets but it's probably a cost thing) so whilst it may look to be a 4:3 resolution it is 16:9.

Can't they do Plasma's at 1920x1080? Or is it, they do but that's the pricey ones? Just curious why anyone would buy a 1024x768 res anything these days..

You've got to see it to believe it mate, they do look lovely, even with an unusual resolution.

Well I have just ordered it but got currys to price match so got it for 272. Although I do miss out on the £10 Argos voucher.

To be fair, if all you're watching is freeview then you're probably better off with a good 720P set.
Hook up your pc to your tv ;)

Great tv for the price. Got two of the older version of this tv and they've been perfect for sd viewing, xbox, dvd's. Never use hd so why spend any more, especially when my 2 year old daughter puts her hands all over the screen and my other 2 boys are waving lightsabers around nearby.

Can't believe there are still people saying it's crap because it's not full hd, it annoys me no end, I've got a 720p Samsung 50" plasma, you see some of the pictures on it and you will just wow at them trust me.

I haven't but you might want to consider your usage and TV surroundings as more important when choosing a TV. For example:-

Plasma TVs generally perform best in normal to low room lighting conditions whereas LCDs are gernerally better in brighter rooms. Plasmas have reflective glass screens so if you have a sunny bright-lit room or a window facing where the TV would be, you might want to opt for an LCD TV to avoid any reflection issues.

LCD TVs are a better choice if you want to hook up your computer display to your TV as they display static images very well whereas some plasmas don't handle computer input so well and can produce a noticeably jaggy image especially on the larger screens.

Plasmas handle fast moving images better. Fast-moving objects like the ball in a football game can suffer from a little motion blur on LCD TVs especially just after the ball has been kicked from stationary. Many people probably wouldn't even notice it though.

LCD TVs are cheaper to run as even energy efficient plasmas still use a third more power than it's equivalent size LCD TV.

Great stuff Robbo11. Just to add that Plasma is also generally considered to have much better black levels too.

Anyway, if most of your viewing is on Sky/Freeview/Freesat SD or HD,this tv is perfectly adequate. Only Blu ray will be a bit of a let down, but come on , 280 squid for a 43" tv ??!!

Bargain.

people who are waffling on about it not being 1080 are just uneducated morons that know absolutely nothing!

the only thing they know is that full 1080 hd exists and that if a tv nowadays doesnt have it, its crap. when in reality, the only thing thats crap is these brainless idiots education

the human eye will not be able to pick up any difference between 720 hd and 1080 hd on screens anything less than 50". only at 50"+ is it worhtwile even thinking of gettin a full hd

secondly, there isnt a broadcasting channel in the land that broadcasts any prgrammes in full 1080 hd. it takes up too much bandwidth. any hd channel you can possibly tune into will be being broadcst in 720

the only time u can watch 1080 is from a blu ray or games console

the tv listed in this deal is an absolute bargain. its got everything anyone would need in a 43" tv and is made by a reputable brand. also the cost/screen size ratio is excellent. this is a low price for a quality, branded, nice specification plasma tv

if anyone is looking for a new tv under 50" and they want a bargain... then this is certainly it

Wrong. At a distance yes, it is not possible to tell, when closer, you can clearly see the difference. If watching something on my 27" 2560x1440 IPS screen, I prefer watching in 1080p as the picture is noticeably sharper.

Wrong. Freeview HD channels are generally broadcast in 1440x1080 interlaced, sometimes progressive. Not full 1920x1080p, but greater than 720.

Being a plasma screen though, it doesn't matter so much this not being full HD, in the right conditions (little natural light so no reflections), this will look better than your average 1080p LCD. Hence it is still silly to moan that this isn't 1080p. It's a great price.

But don't go calling others uneducated morons when you are obviously pretty uneducated yourself.

It depends how far away you sit from the set. Also, some people have a pc hooked up to their tv, in which case they will notice the difference pretty easily (not that it won't be usable).

As joesmith already mentioned, there are no 720P channels. Sky broadcast in 1080i.

I agree that 720P tv's are fine though, just not because of your arguments.
