Thanks for the pointer tictac :) Good price for this TV but note it's 720p resolution.
#2
Does that mean it's not that good?
#3
It is a good TV and if the 40" is anything to go by, even 720p on HD input, the picture is excellent. The digital receiver is great too, if you live in an area that picks up FreeView, definitely a nice buy :)

The full true HD resolution is 1080p though, which this doesn't have.
#4
Is the 1xHDMI instead of 2xHDMI a disadvantage too?
#5
It could be, although you can get adaptors with extra HDMI ports I think :)
#6
I have the 40" version of this and it is brilliant, you can really see the difference when you turn off the light sensor, in that it adjusts itself perfectly to the light in the room so you get the best possible picture. Of course you save power as well.

The viewing angle is superb too, you can see the picture from any angle except of course from the rear ;-)
#7
I agree, the viewing angle on Sony Bravia LCD's is another bonus :) Watching the FA Cup replay last night in HD with no motion blur, pure clarity and it was on a KDL40U2000 in 720p widescreen.

Mine is the Sony Bravia KDL40S2030U (had to look that up) all I know it that its a S-PVA* WXGA Panel (1366 x 768) couldn't tell you much more other than the CL Final 2005 looks pretty damned good on it.
#9
I'm seriously considering this, can anyone offer a reason for me not to go for it? I only have to connect a Xbox 360 and Sky+

A bit of a debate tho as to what pixellation level is the ceiling limit for human eyesight to not see above.
I read somewhere on AVF that even projectors at 1080P to show little discernable difference to 720P to must people.
Jeez, a lot of people have trouble reading a car number plate :(

A good post was here http://www.dtvforum.info/index.php?showtopic=9241

And on smaller screens, the requirement of resolution will be even less.

Thankfully, 1080P is pushing down the price of 720P panels very quickly, and I myself would have little hesitation in going for a 720P LCD if I was in the market for 1.

However, as with all electronics, that TV will under £1000 pretty soon, and the 1080P replacement will be at this price within 12-18 months.

If you are middle-aged the likelihood is that you may be just as impressed with this as the 1080P replacement that appears.

I have shown my parents / family / friends various things at different resolutions, or audio via different speakers…and all they respond with is “I cant tell the difference”. Makes you wonder why you make such an effort picking them a decent camera / TV / stereo etc.

I'm not sure, but I think there's something about XBox 360 needing 1080p or is it 1080i for HD? Other than that, with VM V+ HD box equivalent of Sky+ I suppose, picture is as above.
#12
Does anyone know the difference between this and the same priced KDL46S2010U?

The HD switch on the 360 works at 480P , 720P and 1080P (and 1080i).
Mine is running at 720P and looks amazing still. It will still give you outstanding results :)

Am looking for a KDL20S2030U does anyone know of where i can find a good deal? Cheapest I have found is in Dixions for £426.

All depends how far you sit. At 46", you need to be max 8 feet away to see any benefit from 1080p, and ideally 7 feet. For most rooms that's too close, and it makes it a little tricky for several people to watch the screen at once. If you're 10 feet away, 720p will give an identical picture to 1080p.

Yes, perhaps I should have mentioned the distance.
Thus, my point is true. If you sit 7 feet from a 46" TV people will think you are mad :whistling:

Probably, but only if they don't know anything about HDTVs - most people are still stuck with old CRT notions of distance, where if you got anywhere near to the set you got headaches and saw lots of flicker. For progressive displays with much higher resolution it's all changed - after all, nobody objects to sitting at 30 degrees field of view to a cinema screen, which is the exact same thing as 7 feet from a 46" 1080p.

By the way, I'm 8.5 feet from a 55" (same ratio, 1.85*diagonal for 1080p), and it's perfect :)

Why not? - Well your Xbox will run up to 1080 wich this isn't so you won't get the full experience. Also your Xbox runs interlaced resolution so the TV you really want is one with 1080i, there are tv's out there that can do both 1080i and 1080p however you will probably have to add a few hundred quid more for this especially if you want a Sony. Hope this helps mate whatever its a good tv for the money but you wont be getting the true experience!

The only 1080i TVs out there are old fashioned CRTs, and to get one of these that does 1080 lines is more or less impossible in the UK.

All LCDs, plasmas and modern RPTVs are native progressive. If a set gets sent a 1080i signal, it processes it to 1080p, 720p or whatever the native resolution of the display is.

An xbox is sending a 1080i signal, but that _contains_ the correct 1080p signal. It's just a method of transmission.

A shame really that it only has 1 HDMI input, especially if you are a gamer.
