It's 3d but not 1080.....?
don't get me wrong, great size but 43" non-HD?
Would never go for a plasma screen personally.
Brilliant

Please expand on your thesis!!
Got one of these last year as a second tv and even though it's not full HD...it is a fantastic picture. the standard definition picture seems very crisp. Only downside is, I don't rate the battery powered 3d glasses as they tend to flicker. If buying for 3d, I would recommend choosing one with passive 3d.

Other than that, fantastic at this price.
oos for home delivery for me in london
I've got one of these as a second TV, very good, don't get hung up that its 720p, just google HD viewing distancies.

It'll be active 3D so won't lose resolution like passive 3D 1080p TV's. Passive 3D does not give you 1080p even if the panel resolution is 1080p.
I normally hate the people who complain about resolution but I saw one of these TVs in the flesh in my local Tesco and the pixels are huge. You can see them at a normal viewing distance. And they are irregularly shaped too as this TV only has a horizontal resolution of 1024 pixels.

LCD/LED = motion blur!

Trolls don't like plasmas. Simples.
Cold.....not 8K.....
companies were struggling to get plasmas up to the new 4k resolution. the TV screens also guzzle energy compared to their led siblings. the costs far outweighed the benefits.
I replaced my LCD TVs with plasma, this one and a Panasonic g30 which I'm happy with.
energy guzzlers is a bit extreme, they don't cost much more to run.
if anybody has any doubts just view before you buy.
i LOL at all the 3D tv sados
I love how people seem to think plasma technology literally hasn't improved at all for around 17 years or something. Energy guzzlers.... issues with refresh rates... not as good as LCD. Hilarious X)

A quality plasma panel gives a better image than LED lit LCD panels. Google it if you don't understand.
There is no substitute for seeing and hearing a TV before you buy.
Main reason plasma TV's bit the dust is cost of manufacture vs LCD.
OLED is probably the current future for best image quality.
But with all that said, the way our eyes work means a mediocre picture soon becomes acceptable to most people. The one thing that I find far more important than the endless debate about image is the audio quality, sound is far more important to an enjoyable viewing experience than image. So if haven't got a separate audio set-up and you're stuck with the TV's speakers you need to properly audition a few before you buy.

I would disagree. I bought one as a second TV, but ended up using it as the main TV instead of a 1080p LCD.

It depends what you are comparing it with, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with the picture, and even crisper in HD (not full obviously).

It is a cheap TV at this price, and unless you are wanting a higher spec TV, then you shouldn't be disapointed. Obviously, there are many TV's with better picture quality, but this is for this particular deal...which is good.

As said, for me the active 3D glasses aren't the best, as you can often see the flicker, especially in brighter conditions. The sound quality from the TV speakers is far from the best, but it is acceptable. A decent soundbar overcomes this issue.

If you are looking for an excellent TV on a budget, then you will be more than happy with this, I am sure.

I think you are thinking about LCD Refresh rates. Refresh rates on Plasma has always been way better than any LCD by a long way. There is virtually no ghosting on Plasma TVs
Active glasses are a tricky subject, I agree they do have a flicker if you use them in a light area but they also provide the best possible home 3d for the very reason that each eye is receiving 1080p image (on a proper 1080p tv).

The marketing guru's are saying that using passive 3d software engineering techniques they can display the same image on passive set's, but from a bluray you can really tell the difference in resulution.

I use an active 2013 LG plasma, so parhaps I am biased, however the only times I watch 3d movies I tend to dim the lights in the room anyway (its movie time!), so the draw backs of active glasses are reduced a bit. - Other drawbacks people will mention are things like cost (which for me is not an issue, my glasses cost me £11 each from ebay china), and heavy glasses (again, not an issue, they use a watch battery, and you wouldnt know they were powered).
3D is dead , to be fair.

The BBC have abandoned it and now it looks like sky are doing the same. There has been no premier league football in 3D this season and I don't think there will be.

What exactly are you disagreeing with? I saw the individual pixels at a normal viewing distance. I simply did. That is a fact that isn't up for debate.

If you can't see the pixels then it just means your eyesight probably isn't as good as mine.

see link for viewing distancies, for 43inch if you are more than 8/9 feet away then your eyes can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p rtings.com/inf…hip

how close were you to see the pixels, I've just checked mine and its about 3 feet and closer. my TV is being watched from 10 to 12 feet away and at that distance I can't tell the difference between this set and my main TV which is a much more expensive Panasonic 50inch g30 plasma.

this set has replaced a 42 inch Toshiba 1080p LCD as the picture quatily is better.

Obviously it is up for debate, and it's not a fact...it's your opinion.

If you can see the pixels then your way too close. Maybe the video input source was of poor quality in the store, who knows...I couldn't care less, but don't want people to be put off buying a decent low priced TV based on your awesome eyesight. You can get square eyes standing too close to the TV.

at the end of the day its each to their own, I have this tv and am happy with it, good price, hot.
if you want a led/lcd then buy one of them instead.
