some good coverage of the entire 1080p range here:

...seems it will accept 1080p on all inputs :-D

ALSO, this deal should be available in their local stores - look on their websites for your nearest.

Thanks for this and all the info azz

nice tv with good spec for a reasonable price. voted hot and repped.

dont forget the 2% through quidco.

[SIZE=2]Great price but looking at the results of an HDTV "]Shoot Out" test of 1080 sets it doesn't do very well.[/SIZE]

great TV and great price. Got the 37" version of this myself and paid £1050 which was extremely good. However whether the 42" can match 37" LCD for quality is debateable and it maybe that the bigger screen version doesnt deliver the quality of the 37".:oops:

To be fair, the Sharp is still very well regarded in this test and is only beaten by the Sony which you would be hard pressed to find for less than £1300. I have the 42XD1E and have to say it is nothing less than stunning.

So whats the difference between the £1800 $ony and this?

Can this do 1080p with the xbox 360?

Are you all MAD??

Argos are selling a 50" Sony Bravia for £800 knicker!!

Why would anyone consider paying more 4 less?

Anyway, thats my opinion

I had two of these sets - why two? Well, because the 1st was faulty - had a noise and vertical banding, and the replacement was worse.

Be aware that there is a significant thread on avforums about this set and many other have experienced similar problems.

You can see for yourself here:

Notice the vertical bands on either side of the picture?

Because that Bravia is rear projection and is mince. It also doesn't support 1080p - which is more, not less.

shame this wasn't on when they had the 5 yr warranty!!

Good price though, would certainly be interested if all lcds start coming down like this

not particular a great deal, its always around this price. im waiting for a 120hz 1080p tv, they are coming out as we speak by different manufacturers. bye bye motion blur

If I had the cash, I'd wait a month, put aside an extra £100 and get this - ]http//ww…htm

Sadly they refused me credit for some reason so I'll need to save those pennies the hard way :P

At this sort of size most people would be better with a quality 720p. Unless you're going to sit 6 feet away you won't see any benefit in 1080p, and a plasma has vastly superior contrast and much better response time. On top of that, because you're not paying a premium for 1080p resolution, you can get a higher end model with better colour rendition (eg the Panasonic th42px60).

Of course, if you aren't sold on a flatscreen, the Sony kds55a2000 55" 1080p has better contrast and colours than any of them, and is twice the size :-)

What would be the FPS on a telly like this then?
