It has a vertical resolution so it is capable of displaying a 1080p picture. It may not adhere to HD Ready specifications though. Although there is mention that this TV is Full HD, that does not mean it has HDCP decoding for connection to a blu ray player. Full HD is NOT a standard and is misleading. For compatibilty with devices that send HDCP encrypted signals the TV must be specified as HD Ready or HD Ready 1080P which are the standards set ou by EICTA.

As for 10000:1 contrast ratio you can safely ignore that. Contrast ratio is determined by the brightest white compared to the darkest black. The correct measurement would be pixel on or pixel off (well, strictly speaking not off, but blocked off from the backlighting). Dynamic contrast ratio makes for better looking figures like 10000:1 which is used in dark scenes by reducing the backlighting but increasing the current to the pixels. This makes the blacks even darker but increases the brightness of non-black pixels and can result in an over-exposed picture.

cd/m2 is a measure of brightness in candelas per m2. The higher the measurement, the better the picture can be viewed in bright conditions.

The response time is a measurement for one pixel to change from one colour to another. Now, not all colour changes result in the same response time. Changing from one shade of grey to another shade of grey may take 5ms but changing from red to green may take 16ms. So how do the manufacturers determine the response time, I hear you ask? Simple, they take the fastest response time - not an average, not the slowest but whatever appeals to the consumer. This means a panel with a 5ms quoted response time may actually underperform one with 8 ms response time, for example. Having said that, almost all of today's panels have low enough response times to be suitable for fast moving objects so those who are obsessed with response times are wasting their time (and being misled by the manufacturers).

I have mentioned the contrast ratio in the post above.

If it is not HD Ready then you can't really argue because the retailer did not specify that the TV is HD Ready. I had a look at the specifications on Amazon's website and they havn't even used the term Full HD either which is fair play to them as the term Full HD means absolutely nothing.

Luckily Amazon have a very good returns policy so if you do find that it doesn't meet HD Ready specifications you should have no problems returning the item to Amazon.

As it has HDCP decoding built in then the TV does meet the EICTA standards for HD Ready. I am very surprised that Amazon do not mention HD Ready as it is a very important selling point.

I had a look on LG's website and they confirm that HDCP decoding is built into the TV.

So all in all Elliot....not a bad purchase for the price and spec :):)

The price is not bad at all. However, a 22 inch monitor with similar resolution and HDCP and bought with an external tuner may be slightly cheaper but obviously there is the disadvantage of the external tuner. The price is very good but in order to determine how good a bargain it is one has to look into the quality of the picture with regards to evenness of backlighting and little or no banding from colour and gray scale charts.

I shall let everyone know what the tv is like tomorrow when i switch mine on oh and also when i try the 360 on it :)

Hmmmm not a bad tv at all, apart from the bit at the bottom for a stand !! It doesnt come out, so if your sticking it up on a wall....which we are, the bit sticks out the bottom

anyone else have this problem

i thought the stand bit could just come out to leave you a flush bottom...which would make sense
