Id say thats likely to be crap info from Dixons as this is a widescreen TV lol and 1920 divided by 1080 is the same as 16 divided by 9.

And you can get £11 with TopCashBack.

Edit - Was gonna order but it doesnt have a VGA input

I'm pretty sure most movies aren't 16:9. Isn't that why there are black bands at the top and bottom of the screen whilst watching most films?

I also heard that if films (except made for TV films) are full screen they are cut in some way to fit.

lol, I don't think I've seen a non-widescreen TV on sale for years now!
Of course it's widescreen

yeah - it will be widescreem

Comet have the exact same TV calling it the TX-L32S10



It might look the same but is it exactly the same? Looks a good deal though, voted hot.

Also, don't trust any of the specs from Dixons own site. They are very likely to be wrong.

If John Lewis will price match this it will be an even more scorcher of a deal! :-D

Presumably if you're only watching standard definition stuff, it's not gonna look great on a 1080p Full HD LCD set?

Cheekster.

I think there may be confusion here with some widescreen formats. A lot of films are shot wider than 16:9 like 1.85:1 or even 2.39:1. It depends what version release of disc you buy to what format it will be on for home release and most TV broadcast just get re-formatted into 16:9 nowadays. I have seen some 1.85:1 TVs for sale a few years back but not many.

I dont know but i suspect this TV MAY (im not sure!) just auto re-format 1.85:1 and 2.39:1 into 16:9 but since its just a 32" TV I dont think thats a big deal.

No, it's not the same - the S range are higher spec than the U. Details here.

Is this better than the samsung?


Yes. Samsung are good, but Panasonic are great - even with their "budget" tvs.


Voted hot, and rep added.



Edit: Actually, I didn't realise they did a U model on the LCD, now I think about it - and the link I provided doesn't appear to have it.
However, on the Plasmas the S is higher spec than the U, so I'd imagine it's the same on the LCDs...

nice find

Yeah the U is a cut down version of the S... they remove connections, 1 less HDMI and no VGA input and has a lower contrast by 10,000:1

John Lewis will not price match internet deals. Though Dixons and Currys have the same parent company, their prices are often different and they will not match prices as I have asked.

Looks like it is £449.99 at Currys, which John Lewis would match !

currys.co.uk/mar…810

The only way you might be able to confuse them into price matching is if they don't realise Dixons no longer trades from the High Street or you can confuse them into thinking that you can buy from Dixons and pick up at Currys and that makes it a store deal. I reckon if you got the manager right away and put your case, he might just let you have it. I'd give it a shot !

I would NEVER buy an LG TV ever after seeing the rubbish set bought by a friend of mine! Can't see how any company could put such a product at his on the market!

The picture quality on SD is truly woeful [50" plasma] and the worst I have ever seen! :shock:

Let's just say his jaw hit the floor when he spied my 50" Panny for the first time [both are 1080p]

My LG is great:thumbsup:

Think some people are getting the widescreen issue around their necks. 16:9 is the standard widescreen setup that had been in place for years. Essentially, a 16:9 screen is 1.78 times tall as it is high and can also be expressed as 1.78:1.

A lot of films are made in the ratio of 1.78:1 which will have no borderes at the top and bottom, or 1.85:1, which will produce tiny black borders to the top and bottom of the screen. Usually used in moderate budget films, chick flicks and the like.

Finally there is the likes 2.35:1 or indeed 2.40:1. This is ultra widescreen and tends to be in films by the likes of James Cameron and David Fincher. Gives a very cinematic look but usually needs a big budget as filling a screen that wide cost a lot for visual fx.

On a set like this, you will have small black borders above and below the picture to fit the image on screen as it is so wide. If you use the zoom function on the TV, it will cut image from the film away and may lose you some import detail (or person or the like) as the TV crops it.

Just put it into wide mode or 16:9 mode, dependant on set and enjoy. Hope that helps

Wow, you really think the manager of John Lewis would be this stupid? They check out all price match deals anyway, so you would just look like a massive d*ck head.

panny make the best lcd's imo...only the pioneer / panny plasmas are better but alas no more - inferior lcds were always going to win the format battle as you can buy lcds of any size - plasmas are only >37in

Only Pioneer have stopped producing - Panasonic continue to make very good sets. I've recently bought one and for picture quality its much better than my older 1080p Toshiba 3030D (which in itself was very good). I'd buy this for the bedroom if I had the readies - Pannys are cracking sets!
