I think that's only 720p

No it's not sorry Well that's another good price for 1080p

Yeah, got confused with that 1080i Resolution icon underneath.

I thought the "S" series was only 720p and it is I think they've put the wrong details there. I'm confusing myself now lol

Sorry off this deal's topic but I'm kinda getting lost with the replies

As far as i can make out the one airey posted for £1050 is a 720p/1080i but the one tolgak posted is a 1080p for about £1400. Just that I'm looking for a 40+ inch 1080p TV below £1000 at the moment too.

[SIZE=2]Okay That's right the "S" series is 720p with 1080i [misleading to put that in the description I think].[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]The true 1080p is from the "W" series to "X" series. I don't think any of those will be under £1000 for a while though.[/SIZE]

The original post is a great buy however and I notice Sony have dropped their own shop prices quite a bit. Still cheaper to buy elsewhere though, such as airey's find here

awesome price, voted hot

Disagree. Other manufacturers will force prices to drop. The LCD market is too competitive at the moment.

The W series is £1800+ now, I can't see that going under £1000 very soon. Oops I'm thinking of the 46" W series.

Yeah this one could well go for under £1000 Sorry tolgak :oops: I've been looking at the 46" for a bigger price drop.

the sharp 42" 1080p 120hz is out in about 1 month, will be much better than all the other lcd's currently availabl1!

This may be the case, but you ain't gonna find it for under a grand are you ?? :-D

LC-42D92U is the model you will want.

engadget.com/200…up/

no, def not under £1000, they will prob be £2000 when launched in april.

you'll wait for ever if you are waiting for the next thing to come along in the tv market.

its a fact that you cant see the difference between 720p and 1080p at normal viewing difference so why wait.

2060p is on the way - are you going to wait for that as well??

maybe just hang on for holographic tvs or surgically implanted opthalmolo tv? :giggle:

wats the warranty on this

what is the difference between all the resollutions???!

1080i 1080p 720p etc

I dont think it will run at 120hz in PAL territories? Wont tt will probably run at 100hz?

Hi,
I notice they also have the 40W2000 for a decent price.:thumbsup: Does anyone know about the dealer? How good is their service and support?

and remember guys me inc alot of the home cinema buffs prefer 1080i to 1080p anyway, progressive adds blur in my eyes i much prefer interlaced on pal feed, and what will you all feed to 1080p anyway sky only uses 720p or 1080i, bluray and hdtv will not use 1080p either, and dont get confused with upscaling thats different like the 360 does.

What is the contrast rastion and response time of this?

8ms I think and 1300:1 if I remember correctly

Shame the wife is demanding a new washing machine.

Please be aware this is a U series model indicated by the U are the size e.g 32U2000U. The U on the end is for UK. This is a lower spec than the S, V, W and X range. Its a good price for a Sony 32" but it is the bottom end of the Sony range. The S, V, W and X and the soon to be D etc are high specification. The specs on paper form the U to S seem very similar but the S has more advance Bravia engine controls and a higher quality LCD panel.

I wonder how much better the picture is with this one than the higher quality? Would this be better than other mid range 32?'s?

If you spend time setting an S or higher properly you can get a much better picture. However if that kind of thing doesn't worry you then the U series is good value for a top brand. I've used an S and V series and checked out a U series in Comet. Its ok, the S or higher s better built unit, higher quality materials, the menus are slicker, faster, looks nice and offer more functions. Setup the Bravia right and you can get a great picture from the S, V etc... The U isn't bad just the others are better

I'm not sure what type of 1080p material is out there but I doubt many people in the uk have tried it. You need a tv that will display 1080p, a source that will play 1080p and some material that is recorded in 1080p to see what 1080p is capable of. If your tv is capable of 1080p but you're playing material that was recorded in 720p then all it will do is upscale it to 1080i. To get 1080p it needs to be fed 1080p. Both sky and telewest feed their HD signal at 720p as far as I'm aware. That's why you see the blurring motion because 1080i is simply upscaled 720p pictures.

1080p will make a big difference in a couple of years time when a lot of channels are on tv are broadcast at 1080p. But only to huge tv's. I reckon 46"+ tv's. I doubt at an average viewing distance of around 3m for a 42" tv you will see the benefits of 1080p.

So I'm not bothered about getting one. I'll happily stick with my Panasonic TH42PX60 that displays 720p pictures with aplomb.

I am looking to buy my first HD TV for my Xbox 360. Would this be a good choice ?

correct, sky uses 720p actually for fast stuff like sports, but for slow moveing stuff they do have the choice of 1080i actually, but they mainly use 720p like u said.
