is it 1080p?

owens101;8317656

is it 1080p?



'Resolution 1365 x 768'.

1080p is 1920 x 1080.

Banned

owens101;8317656

is it 1080p?



Nope, hd ready.

I.e. 768

cos 1080p is where all the gold in the world is

Not a bad deal but 720p

DVS_Dee;8318523

Not a bad deal but 720p



considering the only decent sources of 1080p are blu ray, PS3 and higher PC resolutions, its probably not the end of the world.

people are FAR too hung up about 1080p, same as for some reason everyone has a hard on for 4gb of RAM in their PCs, when a more powerful CPU is a way better option

the point is that people are buying this kind expensive and large tv not for a year or so, but for much longer time. technologies developing fast therefore personally I would not buy this tv.
P.s. what about sky hd and those others offering HD television?
good price tho

I am more than happy currently with my 3 year old 42" 1080i panel, feeding through it 360, HD DVD, Blu Ray and V+ (which only has 1080i anyway)

Narkodrom;8319707

what about sky hd and those others offering HD television?



They offer that in 1080i, as does FreeSat HD as does Freeview HD

Mines about 4yr+ old, and does 1365 x 768, and go figure, it does 1080p and 1080i with an upscaling chip, looks superb, and I bet this one does the same.

its not currently possible to broadcast HD TV in 1080p, not enough bandwidth

Actually what happens with 1080 signals is quite the opposite. They're downscaled to the native resolution of the panel, which is 768p.

1080i (1920*540) still displays better on a 1920*1080 set that on anything smaller. Not massively important, and definitely not the most important factor in pic quality, but not worthless either.

Even standard def looks quite good on these.
Its a plasma as well so real colours, good blacks, no motion blur etc.
720p will look great.

If you really want 1080p then fair enough but it is £535.59!

600hz ?
does not sound right.
That would mean the picture is refreshed 600 times a second.
600hz must refer to some other technology used.

They add frames in. Supposably makes certain things like football look better but I never put any of these motion increases on

Dont think they "add frames" its more than likely 600hz subfield motion tech. The tv is still 100hz or so but the pixels flash faster, thats how they get away with saying 600hz

This same screen has been available for £500 the past month. Voted cold.

600Hz is nothing to do with the refresh, simply put a screen is made up of "pixels" the 600hz is to do with the way plasmas "sub" pixels ( the components making up the pixels work ) all it means in real terms is the screen has a better gradient from one colour to the next.
Plasmas have been running at "400hz / 600hz" ++ since the dawn of time, its just that they are now pushing it to make it seem "better" when in actual fact it makes no bloody difference.

The fact is ALL sources run at 24hz/50hz or 60hz depending on whether its a blu ray disk / normal television or some sort of american television show. This the number of times the picture refreshes per second. The higher the "hz" the more times the image refreshes. Recently television manufacturers started adding a technology called 100hz ( 120hz on american screens ) when in actual fact it should have been named something like motion flow. It simply takes the 2 real frames of information, guesses a "midpoint" then adds this in as an extra frame.

http://www.hdtvsolutions.com/images/articles/VIZIO_Motion_Interpolation.gif

This is designed to "smooth" out the image and try and eliminate motion blur. Realistically all it does is make the picture look artificially smooth and the guessing process is never any good so it simply trashes the image quality. 200hz is a more advanced version of this but adds in 2 fake frames for every real frame and causes even more damage to the picture.

The real thing which makes a difference to motion handling is the response time, simply put when a pixel of information changes from one colour to another this takes a period of time. The lower this is the lower the response time.

LCDs are typically 4-8ms.
Plasmas are 0.001 ms meaning they have perfect motion handling and no motion blurring and therefore do not need this 100hz or "motion flow" technology.

Plasmas also have the advantage of more natural colours, no viewing angles and typically do a much better job of your normal television ie sky / freeview / dvds etc.

This television is very good for the money but as i said above it can be picked up for £25 less.

Well put :thumbsup: . Have some rep for your effort and the knowledge being based on fact, and not put across as belittling.

VG.I was of the impression that Plasma had a "Screen Burn" problem if tuned frequently to say "QVC"., is that so?.

Cold its 500 at Richer Sounds

wots the point in buying old hat all tv`s should be a min of 1080p or there obsolete and should be cheap.

@Boxrick rep added for such usefull info

not a bad tv and even if it is cheaper elsewhere its still not a bad price but maybe a bit too big for my games room, but then again maybe not muhahaha

People like you have caused the recession. Because you'll buy anything because it's new and shiny the companies who create this stuff pander to you. The only way to afford this stuff for the majority of people is to finance it with short term expensive debt which people then roll that up into longer term debt before getting more short term debt to finance the new toys.

Then interest rates went up, you couldn't afford it, everything went subprime, the banks were like "oops, we didn't realise so many of our customers were such tools" and the IRONY OF IRONIES is the tools turn around and say "but the banks let us do it".

No responsibility. I have a car I bought 10 years ago, it works fine, I can afford to buy a new car every year but why bother? So I can have the latest software for my traction control? No thanks, I'm not a moron.

So stand up wewontgetfooleda and take a bow. You ruined the world.

Wow. :lol:

Hes not talking about replacing an old 720p tv with a new 1080p one though, he is saying that if you are buying a new TV anyway then you might as well get the latest technology.

Anyway, generally in the past the 2000 LG models like the PG2000 were crap, im not that famliar with this particular model but I would look up some reviews and if possible get a look at one before buying.

I'd agree motionflow/interpolation/whatever is pointless for plasmas, but there's a separate need for 100hz - if you just display 50hz on a plasma it flickers, like an old CRT. LCDs don't do this because of the nature of the tech. Thus all recent plasmas display 50hz at 100hz instead - not interpolation, merely frame repeating.

This isn't really a problem for 50hz stuff, but many have issues with 24p content though, and display these frame-repeated to 48hz, which will flicker. If you intend to watch such content, ie Blurays or DVDs bought from the US, it's worth checking if your set does 48hz or more (x3 = 72hz or x4 =96hz are enough to avoid flicker).

Plasmas haven't done actual burn for a long time. Some LG's get the odd bit of retention if you leave a static image on screen for too long but this will fade away after a few minutes of normal TV viewing.

LCD's aren't exempt from burn either, a cheapo LCD (even some Toshiba's I've seen in reviews) can burn too.
