tbh its not massively important, if you cba have a look at this explanation,

Nice deal. good find.

The problem is this is an older budget 1080p set.... which was not even good when it was released....

Now its just .... :whistling: lets just say a bit rubbish...

Do yourself a bit of justice and purchase a decent tv. With a good scaler/ contrast/ response time and not just because of the fact its 1080p.

RESOLUTION IS NOT EVERYTHING!

this is an OK deal if you desperately need a new TV, but I wouldn't buy it. I remember the Christmas deals were much better than this and were only about £50 more..think I will wait 8 months 2 days till Christmas, got too many TV's as it is!!

For the same money, what 42" telly would you recommend?

Same price @ Homebase, rather randomly - are they run by the same group?

............same measly Quidco too.....................

Both Argos and Homebase are owned by Home Retail Group.

OK, that makes sense then

The Toshiba XV555DB - 37" is about the same price @ Amazon. Smaller screen, but better specs - seems to be a popular choice.

Depends what you want from your telly really - clearer picture, or bigger picture.

Hard to make a judgement when Hitachi have even disowned this TV as it is nowhere to be seen in / products/support/downloads/manuals etc. based on the Argos description /model number.

I posted a PQ6000 earlier this morning for about £100 more wich I think although not full HD might hit the sweet spot.

it appears to be the same as this, ive compared the photos of the 2 models across a few sites and visually theyre idential, specs seem v close too

do they mention response time ?

iirc, the Hitachi brand gets sold to the highest bidder (i.e. they make alot of stuff exclusively for other retailers). The stuff that Currys sell definately has some quality control issues.

The picture looked extremely like Toshiba L42VP01U

However, the size is different, and Contrast Ratio is not the same.
