Why the bad rep!? its 1080p?! there are smaller tvs going for that price... that only go up to 720p and they got better rep!

Not sure if it's the same model but this LG 1080p 37" Tv is only £649.95 delivered here.

novatech.co.uk/nov…F66

1080p on a 37" - The difference wont be that major. I'd rather get a 720p 37" tv for cheaper.

Voted hot nonetheless.

I got this tv for 579 Delivered with a home cinema system and glass stand from dixons in there happy hour last time around! so bad price lol or im a lucky git

Now that is a hot deal!

Lucky Git ;-)

I don't know why people have voted cold either.

Anyway, you'll probably have to wait until next year before the price is sub £500 for a 37" 1080p.

yeah its well harsh.. that guy gor that 500 odd quid deal out of luck! not really a deal! I think people dont really understand what 1080p and 1080i mean..
ALSO.. my friend has a 1080p 37 inch screen... you can see it really obvious the difference between 720p and 1080p!!!! If that was the case... why would companies develop tvs with that technology! hahaha

Agreed.

Over 32" you need to go 1080p really, as you'll see horrible horrible pixellation. Good find damanisjon (who I might add, I think I might know in the real world ... maybe? Or coincidence?).

I think too many people are being suckered in to 720p "High def". I'm sticking to a CRT until after xmas when 1080p panels drop and plasma screens start to be phased out

So true! its an LG, its not my favourite brand... but my actual LG CRT has lasted me for 8 years and the damn thing wont die.. wish it did so I could buy a new tv without the wife complaining.
Ideally I would like the Toshiba 30x30 DB but its about 100 quid more.
LOL yeah im sure I know the silver fox! if he is the camera enthusiast I know!

Absolute nonsense, why post when you have no idea what you are talking about?

You ask anyone with their 42 inch, 720p Panasonic/Pioneer plasma if they would swap it for a 37 inch 1080p LCD, only a halfwit would!

Nice find.

There is certainly a great deal of confusion and ******** over 1080p in context to screen size. :?

First of all to the person who said you need 1080p after 32" and upwards, that is crazy. I know people with 50" 720p plasma's, the picture is stunning when watching a HD-DVD or playing the 360.

Secondly, 1080p at a size of 37" is simply useless to most people:

- Most people sit five feet or further away from their TV. At this distance, with a 1080p source on this size of TV (37"), there would be ZERO distinguishable difference. (If you sit 1-2 feet away from the TV, the quality would be good, where as on a 720p it wouldn't be as good... But who sits that close...?)

- Nearly all HD sources in the UK at the moment are outputted at 720p, meaning that it wont look any better if you have a 1080p TV anyway...

In Summary:
If you want to watch 1080p content (or play it with the PS3), if you're sitting 5 foot or more away from the TV, you will need at least a 42" screen. For the price range mentioned in this thread I would suggest ]this Sony 40" 720p, which is only about £20 extra than the LG in this thread when you use the discount code.

If you're sitting 1-2 feet away, then you would get away with a 1080p 37".



Hope this helped.

I looked at this TV but went for a Toshiba 37X303DB (better reviews) from Comet for £690 (less another £25 quidco for reserving online). They pricematched with Empiredirect who had a shop next door. Im very pleased with it so far :). And the Xbox360 looks great in 1080P, especially as I only sit 2 foot away due to poor eyesight :w00t:

Original Poster

lmao what shop is that?
i think i trust dixons more.. .quidco is more.. and it might be cheaper after the voucher use.. I think withyour guys you might have to pay more delivery.. where as dixons you might even just pick it up at the store

from what ive seen 1080p is miles better even on 37 inches than 720p.. thats talking from experience.. mathematically proved too.. its logic at the end of the day... apart from that.. i guess it comes to eye sight to spot the difference :-p

Most of Avforums would disagree with you - it simply doesn't make a difference at reasonable differences on a 37inch set (i.e. without your nose practically pressed against the screen).

1080p is worth it at 50", possibly at 42". Not at 37".

its logic? Well your logic is wrong.

Again, 1080p on a 37" tv is not worth it, unless there is a small price difference between it and a 37" 720p tv.

You must have some super human eyes if you think any different.

I want a 1920x1080 TV for the extra real estate when I hook my PC up to it. Try and argue against that one ;-)

I dont think anyone would argue with you regarding this.

Most people will agree that the deal for this TV is a good one, the point that I and a few others are making is people are getting too hung up on the whole 1080p. Stating that 1080p is miles better than 720p on any screen between the sizes of 32 and 50 inch is pure nonsense, to then follow it up with Plasmas will disappear after Xmas is laughable.

we should make this post better by saying bluray is better than HD

Excuse me? Watch a regular DVD on a 32" ... no prob.

Watch it on a 42" ... ugly.

You are the one talking nonsense my friend. Shame. You appear to be as misled as the rest.

edit: seriously, you are all totally out of context. 42" 720p will look stunning. DVDs simply WILL NOT. That is the point I'm making ... regular TV (yes, terrestrial TV) is NOT HIGH DEF. Therefore, it will look NAFF on 42" screens AND 37" screens because of the low resolution. Following? Good.

720p on 37" or 42" will look ace. However, put 720p on a 52" (which I can happily do with Sky HD) and it looks good, but you can CLEARLY see pixellation. Argue all you like. Until all TV is broadcast in 1080p, I'm really not going to argue with clueless halfwits.

damanisjon

where as dixons you might even just pick it up at the store



Where is your nearest Dixons store then, I thought they were online only now??

Oh and about plasma being phased out? Open your eyes. Engage brain.

Who makes most of the world's flat panel monitors? That's right kids - the same companies that make LCD televisions! Companies would love to consolidate production lines and plasma is ... well not the same production method as LCD. Obviously.

Plasma will START to be phased out. They won't all just disappear. Underlying proof here that light travels faster than sound. People appear bright until they open their mouths ...

Can anyone remember what the hot deal was on this thread? :thinking:

You clearly have no idea what you are talking about either ;-)

Cheap manufacturers cop out on the standard def encoding, which creates a pixely picture on bigger screens.

If you go with a manufacturer which handles standard def upscaling properly there isn't much to moan about if you sit 4-5 feet away from the screen. Good examples of this are Sony, the latest Bravias handle SD upscaling beautifully.

Aye. It was a PROPER HDTV for a reasonable price

Well I've seen upscaling to a 26" Philips (720p) and it was acceptable and whatnot. Clearly pixellated though, so too bad. I could see this clearly from 8 feet away. I'm certainly not moaning - I'm just pointing out a few obvious things here. And the 52" panel that shows pixellated 720p broadcast and films was a Samsung, so hardly a cop-out ...

Those who think 720p and 1080p are "negligible" in their differences, are the exact same people that think 128kbps MP3's sound the same as 320kbps ... yawn ... arguing on the internet. I have really lowered my standards today.
