Enjoy realistic 3D viewing

Bring home an immersive and spectacular 3D experience. Samsung’s innovative and powerful 3D active shutter glasses deliver full HD 3D viewing. It’s enhanced by Micro Dimming and 3D Auto Contrasting to bring you deeper and clearer 3D images. You’ll even see your 2D content in another dimension using the 3D Converter.


Real Black Panel
The Real Black on your Samsung TV reduces the on-screen glare caused by ambient light, so blacks and shadow details are as crisp and defined as possible. So with minimal reflection caused by the light conditions, images are clean, crisp and distraction-free.

Smoother images for greater clarity
Using the latest in subfield motion technology, Samsung Plasma TV flashes a single image up to 600 times a second. The result is smoother images with unprecedented picture quality, no matter how fast the images are moving.

Here we go. The 720p argument all over again.

It's negligible as all HD channels are broadcast in 720p anyway.

Squint all you like to find the difference.

1080p is pretty much minimum you would need if you want to double-up your tv as a pc/laptop monitor. believe it or not some people need/want that option to have. but, yes, i agree with you that not much difference between 720p and 1080p on 40-odd inch tele.

However, some reviews (in general) suggest that tvs with 720p uses cheap components internally whereas 1080p versions of tvs use high-end stuff internally. Make of it whatever you will.

good day
Bought from them, telly went pop, charged me £20 to return it to them. Said it was not their choice, was down to the couriers. Shan't be using them again.

That's not correct at all. HD channels in the UK are broadcast in 1080i on freeview, freesat, sky and virgin media. Strictly speaking, they are broadcast in 1080p at 25 frames per second for the majority of content and 1080i at 50 frames per second for the remainder (mostly sport, live broadcasts and lower budget programmes). 1080i cannot be displayed in it's intended resolution of 1920x1080 on a 720p TV but can be displayed properly on a 1080p TV.

Having said all that, 720p is virtually indistinguishable from 1080p unless viewed close up relative to the size of the TV. So this TV should look as good as an equivalent 1080p from about six or seven feet away.

I think you will fond that 1080i & 1080p are totally different.
1080i is an interlaced format which displays at 720p but doubles the frame rate used on screen so it can change the scene twice, thus creating the illusion of 1080p, on sports this doesn't not work to well especially on LCD panels as you get very bad ghosting.

if you have a 720p tv and you watch sports & films set your digibox/sky/virgin to 720p mode, if you are watching nature programs set it to 1080i.

I use a 1080p plasma at home due to using it as a media centre, so all my films are in 1080p and there is an obvious difference between that and 720p.
What I don't understand is the description states a full 3D tv... but if it isn't 1080p then it isn't full 3D, its going to be the same resolution as those cheap passive 3D TV's running at half res...
please excuse typing mistakes as was posted from my phone :-)

1080i does not display at 720p
My phone automatically put the 'p' at the end. 1080i is displayed as 720 but interlaced at double frame rate.

Sorry for all of the confusion this must have caused

That's still wrong anyway.

That's still wrong anyway.



can you explain?
my understanding is that it has 1080 lines but cannot display all of them at the same time (as that is progressive and redraws the whole image at a time) so it interlaces them, thus a 720 pixel size image is displayed then the following image is displayed on the alternate lines, this means only 720 pixels are in use at one time for each frame?

1080i has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 so it 1080i doesn't fit on a 720 screen. The only way for 1080i/1080p to fit on a 720 screen is to downscale the resolution.

Have the 51" version. Cracking tv for price and 3d effect stronger than cinema. Esp through 3D player. Decent speakers too. Recommended on hdtvtest. Pick up glasses around £25 each.
This TV being 720P will ultimately have a lower resolution the that of a 1080P, yes you can sit further away and they will look the same, but all you are doing is making the image small by moving away, and then what is the point in a big TV. I suggest get a 2D 1080P TV without 3D if you can not afford a 1080P 3D TV.

Note that this will also be a cheep component TV. Stay well away.
