Not bad, but only 1024x768 and no VGA out? Not hot, or cold...
I don't see how you can watch a 51" screen with that resolution.

I've got this and it's a better picture than my 42 inch 1080p LG. Really good value too.
1024x768? That can't be right...

*edit*

Those are the specs listed for it everywhere....

I'm sure they're not legally allowed to use the "HD Ready" trademark for anything less than 720p. Cold

This isn't HD-Ready, it's EDTV/ED-Plasma i.e. Enhanced or Extended Definition @ 1024x768 resolution.

In order to be "HD-Ready" it would need a resolution of at least 1280x780 (720p). Critically, the Samsung website makes no mention of HD in relation to this unit (http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/model/PS51E450A1WXXU-techspecs).

Surely it's false advertising for retailers to be calling it a high definition television unit? I notice Play.com make the same false assertion.

a lot of plasmas have 1.6 rectangle screens, 720p stuff scales fine
