#3

Its 60Hz from what i read in the manual, which is fine for Blu ray, PS3, Xbox 360, Sky etc...

Great price. Out of my budget right now, but impressive. Heat added.
#7
Very good price.
I'm in the market for a tv, though have slight concerns about the lack of sound quality from the reviews i've read.
Think i may wait a day or 2 and see what other retailers are offering in their sale, though again don't want to be a victim of the snooze you lose.

Can anyone recommend a decent 5 year warranty option with this tv?

Full HD is 720P and 1080P

Got this TV in the summer from Sainburys, they was doing a special price for £399, its truly a great TV full 1080p, 60Hz handles Blu-ray well.

Picture quality is excellent for the value, handles standard def well, user friendly controls.

I have HTPC connected, not found a single error with this TV.... really happy.

Whats the freeview program guide like?
#12
poor deal imo because of the very low contrast ratio (15,000:1)
you're much better off saving an extra £50-100 and getting the Toshiba Regza 42RV635DB, contrast ratio of 50,000:1
#13
I got this last month at this price. Its brilliant.
#14
poor deal imo because of the very low contrast ratio (15,000:1)

Lcd's by there very nature are bright, its the black levels you need to be worried about.
#15
nice price :)
#16
Get the 42XV635d over this. The difference is night and day, due to the massive difference in contrast ( 50000 vs 15000) and you get the benefit of 100hz with the XV.
#17
Thats £599, I would hope it was better for that price...
#18
Hi,
This tele was available on Amazon 3 days ago for £479 so another £30 off can't be bad. However, it was also available from Dell (about 2 weeks ago) on Hot Deals at £469 and 11% from Topcashback making it an even more amazing bargain at £418.41. I wanted to go for it then but OH thought it would get cheaper in the January sales (wishful thinking on his part) I have the 32" version of this model and the picture is stunning.

what you are talking about is the brigtness of the tele.

The contrast ratio is with regards to (basically) the colour palette. The difference and range in colours.

E.g. 15,000:1 might have 3 shades of blue and 50:000:1 might have 10. Giving a much better quality. I don't fully know how to explain it properly, but check out wikipedia to get a full explanation.

So please don't tell someone something that is completely wrong without knowing what you are talking about yourself, as you could lead them to waste £450. :thumbsup:

There are 2 sites that have the much better T.V at a cheap price.

£533 and £511 respectively

Taken from wikipedia

The contrast ratio is a measure of a display system, defined as the ratio of the luminance of the brightest color (white) to that of the darkest color (black) that the system is capable of producing. A high contrast ratio is a desired aspect of any display, but with the various methods of measurement for a system or its part, remarkably different measured values can sometimes produce similar results.

The first link you provided is good though as they provide free delivery unlike a lot of companies

The difference is night and day, due to the massive difference in contrast ( 50,000 vs 15,000).

People don’t seem to realise that beyond a certain point the numbers get meaningless and they only tell you a small part of the full story about picture quality.
You shouldn’t choose one TV over another based purely on the contrast ratio. Manufacturer’s are cynical and wouldn’t be beyond increasing contrast ratio at the expense of picture quality because they know that the average person is clueless and will buy based on numbers and brand name.
Two TVs with the same spec at the level of ‘the numbers’ can offer very different picture quality so how do you choose then?

The same goes for TFT monitors where sometimes they improve the response time at the expense of image quality.

Pretty sure it was this one I just saw in Sainsbury's at this price.

Looks good to me (but then, I paid nearly £1000 for my 32" Tosh a while back!).

Even the best HDTVs are barely over 2000:1 now. Pretty much all quoted contrast stats by all manufacturers are a pack of lies invented by the marketing department - they aren't even close to being close to reality.

For example, the (excellent) LG PS6000 claims 2 million to one, but it's been measured at 1300:1 on/off after calibration, or 900:1 on the stricter ANSI test.

Or the really expensive Panasonic V10. Claims 2 million to one dynamic, 40k native. Measured at around 5000:1 on/off, 1500:1 ANSI. This is pretty much the best HDTV contrast available now since Pioneer have pulled out.

These sort of differences are pretty typical. You just have to ignore anything the manufacturers say, and rely on tests with proper measured numbers.

Thats a 46" Sharp on the wall which i paid £1500,
This TV is better in every way but size.
My main TV is a 70" Sony Bravia which i bought for £2200 in January which states 10000 contrast ratio, you can not buy a tv for under £15000 which even comes close. But it still only has 10000 contrast
#26
The 70" main screen is a rear projection so the flash has taken away the light.
Still being a rear projection it is not as pin sharp as an lcd or led screen.
#27
My Regza lasted two years before being written off by the Repairers.
Good Luck!

I ordered this tele from dell using the so called 11% cash back and it tracked at the normal rate plus I ended up cancelling from dell as they kept putting the delivery date back..how ever I ordered from amazon yeserday and it was delivered today.. I ordered at the £479 price..emailed them today and I am getting it at the £449 price..not forgetting nectar points!! great tele by the way :whistling:

I agree, you only have to take a look at the mega-pixel seekers of digital cameras. A lot of people will buy on mega-pixel rating rather than picture quality.

How did you manage to get them to refund you back the difference in prices? I recently purchased a Sony mp3 player for my Niece. Amazon dropped the price by a fiver 3-4 days after I ordered it. E-mailed them twice and they were having none of it. They even went as far as to say return it for a refund rather than give me the £5 difference back! :thinking:

When did tele become a common word? (not being 'funny' or intending an insult). TV, telly yeah...

Sounds a tempting deal though - this or the Alba 42" 1080P for £399 from Argos...

Perhaps 'telly', comes from 'tele', when pronounced on its own?

Sorry, but what do you mean by "Freeview and Resolution" ( i mean the resolution part) ?

I moved out of my three bedroom house to rent it out, and moved into a large nine bedroom house.
Thats the cinema/games room in the pic, the gym will go next door once i knock the wall through on the right.

Does it support 1:1 pixel mapping then? If so, over what inputs? Kinda worthless without it.
