Am I missing the point.

Me and the girlfreind spent probably an hour in John Lewis today lookin at the Sharp LC 700, 100 hz LED TV (and others). Everyone raves about flat screen and how wonderful the picture is, (read reveiws online), the ones we looked at were the crappiest pictures ever and I mean all of them, Panasonic, Samsung etc.

The straight lines were zigzags and whoa when the picture moved quick (even the presenter blinking), Eddie Jordan had blocky pixels round his neck :-s

I think if thats the best they can do for normal TV (ie Freeview) I'll stick with my 10 year old 100hz Phillips Match Line CRT

they were probably on a very weak freeview signal ..........or so common sense would dictate as they are usually at the back of a massive store......too much interference

In short yes you missed the point

JL will have had a standard coax input going to all the tv's on display giving a garbage signal

Garbage signal = garbage picture

Find somewhere who can show you the Tv running an HD input. Then you might get the point

You say in the OP that it was Eddie Jordan you saw on screen? So it was the Formula One race from earlier?

If so, you'd have only been watching a Standard Def broadcast, as F1 isn't broadcast in HD in the UK (it's only on BBC One, not BBCHD). They'll have split the standard input over a number of TVs (probably not even with a signal booster) so will look **** poor.

I did wonder but all of them ? and every shop I go in to look at them I see the same, is it just because they need to be on HD and Freeview isn't HD My TV runs Freeview way better. :?

Well they are all HD now so unless you are planning on using the HD function - sky blu ray o something similar then there may not be much point

However your freeview box or the in built freeview that the tv will no doubt have will be a million times better quality than in the shop

Up to you whether you want to stick with the decent picture you have or burst the best part of a grand for something that looks better in your living room

You should check out Richer Sounds, their demo room should give you a better picture (if you excuse the pun) HD or not

If your looking for a serious upgrade in picture quality then for sure you want do as some of the posters have said and use HD (Blu-ray etc). Now if you mostly use your TV for Freeview and don't want to pay the extra for HD because you have nothing to make use of it.. It might be worth waiting it out till Feb/Mar next year when TV's are released with the new HD Freeview Receivers built-in. For sure the picture quality in the shops should look a lot better although it does depend on where you live.

Prepare to do some research, good luck :thumbsup:

So which is better - a plasma or an LED? I have a 40% discount on LED tv's but couldn't really understand the difference from what I have read online.

Will be needed a new one by the end of the year and can't decide

Btw we don't get freeview round here
