Just went for this and used a 5% voucher http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/121511/5-off-at-curry-s-and-pc-world-onlin/all/vouchers/new/
also used quidco for a further 5% so in total about £450 for a toshiba 42" fantastic :santa:

This TV is not 1080p.

I am sorely tempted at this price, but I think the larger the screen the more of an issue 1080i - 1080p is.

It's £899 on John Lewis website with 5 years warranty, but can be bought for £679.

Don't forget the 5% discount code (find it on this forum) & Quidco

Hot though

1080p?

1080p?


1080i is an interlaced signal whereas 1080p is a progressive signal. 1080p is considered superior though generally though only on larger screens.

Hi. I have ordered 1 using the 5% discount and Quidco. I thought it was a great price for a Toshiba 42 inch. Could somebody recommend a good wall mounting bracket for this TV please. Preferably, cheap as possible. : ). Many Thanks.
#11
anybody know the response time on this set?
banned#12
This is worth a read

It also seems decently specified, with its 1366x768 native resolution being joined by a very respectable 4000:1 contrast ratio. What's more, the HDMIs are very unusual in budget circles for being able to handle the 'pure' 1080p/24fps format Blu-ray movies are encoded in.

Shouldnt think there would be a massive difference in any 42" lcd...if you cant afford to pay the electricity bill then people shouldnt be buying a 42" lcd television. Just my 2p worth!!:whistling:

depending on if they send you the 3030 or 3035.

The set isn't 1080p - it will accept a 1080p/24fps signal (i.e from a bluray disc), but wont display it.
#23
Like all TV threads, this thread has a very high chance of descending into a lcd\plasma and 1080i\1080p war.

It's simple, if you don't have a sky hd box\v+ box or never gonna buy hd dvds then you really don't need 1080p

no it can handle 1080p/24fps and downscale is what i believe they're saying

Despite only having a resolution of
1366 x 768 pixels, Toshiba’s 42C3030D
can display a 1080p picture by
downconverting it to fit the screen.
Not in itself much use. But unlike many
LCD sets on the market, it features a
chipset that processes 1080p material
encoded at 24 frames per second in
its original frame rate – most other
sets convert the signal to 50 or 60Hz.
With forthcoming Blu-ray decks from
the likes of Pioneer that can output
a pure 1080/24p signal, Toshiba’s
decision to implement this chip across
its new C, X and Z series could be good
news for hi-def home cinema purists


What does this mean?

Went for this in the end as I've been hunting badly to replace my old 40inch that I've given to my brother

The link that a poster provided is via his personal account hence it asks for a security check. Enter the product code only and it shows at a higher price.

I just bought one.

I agree. Whilst we all sit and talk about 1080i & 1080p we foget the real world sometimes.

I have a vast collection of DVD's, some of which I haven't even opened yet. I am certainly not going to replace them with HD/Blu Ray in the near fututre. Most of what I want I already have. I really don't buy more than 2 films max from any given year ( I can't think what I have bought that was produced in 2007 this year).

I am a Virgin customer. They produce very little on HD at the moment. The real concern I have for the TV is the quality of sports reproduction on it. However at £474.00, it's got to be classed as a bargain.

Do not use the link provided here.

Go via Quidco, then enter Toshiba 42C3030.

It will then work. I think the pasted link is asking you the poster's password.
