Hot from me!

I wrote this for another thread and I'm going to make it my mission to post this on every HDTV post! Hopefully before anyone starts to comment that 1080p is the best for everyone

When to buy 720p (HD) or 1080p (Full HD)
Simply put (excluding screens over 52"):
If your source is 1080p (Full HD) it will look better on a 1080p TV than an equivavlent quality 720p TV (However, having a screen size below 52ish" and a 'normal' viewing distance it's very very hard to tell the difference.) but it'll still look great on a 720p TV
If your source is 720p, it'll look best on a 720p TV
If your source is Standard Definition, it'll look better on a 720p TV due to less upscaling

What the hell is upscaling?!
If the TV has a resolution greater than that of the source, it must 'stretch' the image to fill the screen. This creates 'gaps' between the pixels that make up the image - which would look awful if uncompensated for.
Upscaling looks at the pixels adjacent to the gap and makes an educated guess at what to fill that with. The better quality the upscaling software, the better the end result.

1080p Sources:
Most BluRay discs (not all)
PC (if supported)
Some (not many) PS3/X360 games

720p Sources:
Everything else branded HD!
Sky/Virgin HD
FreesatHD
Almost all PCs
Almost all X360/PS3 games
Those remaining BluRay discs that arent 1080p

SD Scources
Sky/Virgin
Freeview
Freesat
DVD

So, work out how much you'll be using the TV for each of the above sources, and you will know wether to get 720p (most people) or 1080p
It's also worth noting that TV broadcast resolution won't reach 1080p for years, if ever.

Following logic, the safest bet for the best picture quality for the next few years is 720p. Unless you go over 52ish" then pixel density (or lack of) starts to make a difference.

This is possibly the best advice I have ever seen for getting a new tv. I didn't have a clue what to go for and thought there was no point getting a 720p but seeing as I mainly want it for ps3 then it makes sense to. :thumbsup:

Glad it helped :thumbsup:

Now to find one for around £300, any good LG's, JVC's or Sony around that price 32"?

anyone got a code to make my sky remote work with this?

Contrast ratio is a hard one to call sometimes. It refers to the difference between the blackest black and the whitest white for that TV, and affects shadows and such.
Unfortunately manufacturers are allowed to measure the black level while the screen is switched off and call it a "Dynamic Contrast ratio"!!
The result is a pointless figure in the 20,000:1+ area.
I don't know for sure, but there aren't many with a true contrast ratio above about 5000:1, and even they are at the very high end of the market. Most are under 2000:1

Note; This TV does not have built in Freeview..

Ive seen this tv in scan and its a very good looking tv.

One question. On my v+ box I can adjust it to use either 720 or 1080. Is this just upscaling or true 1080?

The 1080 setting on your v+box is 1080i (i = interlaced) not 1080p (p=progressive scan) so it is not true Full HD.
