720p TV to 1080p is it worth it?

So I recently decided to grab myself a HD TV for my Playstation 3 mainly and the picture quality is no doubt amazing but I am wondering if it's worth upgrading to 1080p? I have seen some 1080p TVs and I must admit the picture quality on those TV's look even more incredible.

I love movies so Blu-Ray in 1080p would be a must and SOME Playstation 3 games can upscale to 1080p I believe.

So thats all really for those who know about these kind of things it is worth going for the full 1080p resolution?

Here is the TV I have by the way:

It was pretty cheap for a HD TV. I am thinking about maybe selling it on Ebay and getting a 1080p set but if there won't that much difference I won't. My TV resolution is 1680 x 1050 so I think it is close to 1080p I am not sure. The maximum I would spend on a 1080p TV would be £600.00 from "32 -"40 in size.

Thanks.

its all depend on the size, less than 42" you wont see much difference. 50" and above will be noticeable. its your call.

we brought a 37 inch 1080p tv from tesco in may great picture we love it:thumbsup:

I doubt you'll be able to tell the difference unless you're really close.

To be honest, i'd wait till later on in the year, prices are still falling at the moment, and OLED TV's due out soon, which will push prices down, i think with around £600 you would be getting bottem end 1080p at the moment, which may be very similar to your 720p

As always, you get what you pay for, so wait a bit till the higher quality panels drop down to your level. I'm still using my PS3 on a 24" CRT

40" Sony 1080p here. I would say this is the smallest size to get if you want to go 1080p.

I would probably chose a higher quality 720p over a cheap 1080p set. There would be little point in watching a Bluray in 1080p if the set has terrible black levels and contrast.

Alright thanks I didn't realize a TV that of that size ("52) would be needed to see the difference so I will stick with the TV I have. Maybe in a few years I will upgrade but "52 1080p cost well into the thousand mark which is a bit much for me I was thinking more like £500-700.

Sorry for the double post but what sort of 1080p TV is worth looking out for when they come down in price because as some of you have said some 1080p TV's that are on the cheaper side produce less impressive pictures.

The best one's are probably the Panasonic Viera 1080p Plasmas

Not sure what this particular model is like personally, i'm sure others will, but something like this http://www.johnlewis.com/230475912/Product.aspx

Thanks I will bear this in mind. The prices for those kind of TV's are a lot but I can afford one.

I will wait a few years until the prices go down though.

Cheers.

The best sets to get at the moment would have to be the Pioneer Kuro 9th Generation but you will pay the price for them...

Sony, Pioneer and Samsung have high end LCD's coming out later this year which will be worth looking at.

I purchased a Sony 32W4000 which has 1080P and compared to the 26T3000 we had, I would say that using if with our PS3, it is noticable how much of a difference there is between 720P and 1080P even on this size set. We already have a 40 which to be honest show more of a difference but you'll not be disappointed with this model.

We paid £719 for this set with a Sony DAVF200 from Empire Direct earlier this week with the 10% discount code, we might sell the Home Theatre System which will get us back about £250 so the set will have cost under £500!!!
