It is a good deal but at 42" i would want 1080p

the resolution is really low for a 42"

i would avoid

no it isnt low, its standard 720p.

1080p is NOT the gold at the end of the rainbow.

for watching normal tv (freeview/cable/sky/dvd) this is fine
for watching the majority of HDTV broadcasts, this is fine.

resolution of a tv isnt the selling point, quality is.

no it's not, 1280x720 is standard 720p, this is 1024x768 according to the listed spec. this is a pretty crappy resolution

proper 720p is fine, but this is about 20% less pixels. someone else can do the precise math

Well spotted, without a native resolution of 720p, this tv is to be avoided

cold - poor spec as mentioned above :thumbsup:

Not voting because of your begging for heat!

And yeah its not 1080p either...

1024x768 IS the standard resolution for a 720P Plasma display, as the pixels are rectangular and not square as they are on an LCD display.

proving you and so many other know stuff all about tvs and their resolution.

a good quality 720p res tv is better than a cheap nasty 1080p one.

resolution of 1920x1080 doesnt automatically guarantee a good picture.

you guys need to read up some more facts.

go read some TV reviews and make an informed choice, not one based on the misunderstood myth of 1080p=best tv pic

Bear in mind this is an older model. Good price for somebody who just wants a 42" tv though.

no it's not, 1280x720 is the standard resolution for 720p, regardless of the type of panel. crt, lcd, plasma, lcd-led or oled, is irrelevant. there aren't different resolution standards for different types of display, although different types of display may have common screen resolutions, some which may and some which may not be capable of 720p and or 1080p

you are correct about the rectangle pixels however

From your own wiki link :

"Actual 1280x720 flat-panel native resolution is uncommon."

Hows that for a bit of fail? If you need further clarification, it means most 720 AREN'T 1280*720. HTH.

if you bother to read the link properly it tells you that 1280x720 is the standard resolution

it later states that most panels are not made to that resolution, but it does not state and does not mean that any other resolution size is the standard size, it lists a number of resolutions that can display 720p, all of which have a minimum number of pixels horozontally of 1280, and a minumum of pixes vertically of 720. thus any resolution bigger than 1280x720 can display 720p properly, but any panels with a lower number of pixels cannot. whilst a 1280x768 panel can display 720p, it does not mean that 1280x768 is the standard resolution, but it's capable of displaying the standard resolution of 720p which is defined specifically as 1280x720, the standarad resolution is not a number of different resolutions, it's one specific fixed resolution

thus as the panel in question is 1024 horozontally, which is less than 1280, it's not capable of displaying 720p properly, even if the vertical size is 768, greater than the 720p standard

as i'm not a child, i don't know what the term is to reply to someone that says stupid crap like "fail" to someone when they are clearly wrong in the face of written evidence, but i know about the technical specs of AV gear, and you clearly don't, and furthermore you appear to have difficulties in reading and understanding written facts, which can only lead to you giving bad advice if you continue to post like this online

This tv is basically no worse than any other, it just doesn't have a 'true' 16:9 screen. See how short that was? Not a waste of time put down lecture like you try to give :roll:

it is a true 16:9 screen, it's just not true 720p or 1080p. you didn't have to argue a point that was wrong about a subject you weren't knowledgeable about, and then make a derogatory comment suggesting i was wrong when you were wrong, and misleading people into thinking the panel was something that it wasn't

as to being no better or worse than any other tv, that's a matter of opinion, but you can obtain a higher resolution and potentially better PQ with a number of other panels, so "no better or worse" isn't an accurate statement. for the money it may be a great bargain to some that want a large screen and will watch mainly SD material, but for a panel of that size it's quite a low resolution compared to more recent models of the past couple of years. unusually this is only an 18 month old model

1024/768 = 1.33 = 3:4. Live with it. It would only be 'true' 16:9 if the pixels were square.

you really have no idea about flatscreen panels do you? every time you post you come up with another "fact" that's wrong. the screen is 16:9. i suggest you spend some time googling and reading up on why, as i don't have the time or inclination to explain it to someone as rude as yourself. as you can see from my previous posts i was correct even though you insisted i was wrong, you will find the same again regarding the panel ratio
