Maybe one for those that prefer to go with the big name sets - more expensive at Amazon or Play so this seems a good price. Can get a little extra if you go through Quidco. . . . . . I bought a different LCD from the BT Shop a few months back and the delivery was quick.




The HD Ready Sony BRAVIA V series TVs feature a stunningly slim and stylish design with integrated digital tuner, and BRAVIA Theater Sync for one-click control over your home entertainment system. This unit also includes ultra-wide viewing angle, wall mount options and 3 HDMI inputs to easily connect to high definition sources such as Blu-Ray disc and Playstation 3.

Must say i have bought from Dabs in the past and whilst there is no telephone number their returns service is excellent, which i have used several times. There is an online live help chat also, open office hours. I would recommend dabs to anyone.

Shame its only 1080i ..... but thats not really an issue with a 37" set.

It's not 1080 at all, the resolution is 1366*768.

thats still 1080i even at 1366*768

Aren't MFI and Woolworths big companies ?

Dabs.com is absolutely fine. Anyone who wants to buy from here will not have a problem. We have been using them for years (company i work for)

Just because it accepts a 1080i signal does not make it 1080i.

It's only got 768 lines, so all it does it downscale the 1080i image to fit.

but isnt that what all TV's do that support 1080i that arent the full 1080P? My point is, the chap above said the TV does not do 1080 at all, which is false. It supports 1080i. Whether this is downscaled or not isnt the point. I was merely correcting him

Billy listen to kristianity, I think you've got 1080i and p confused :).

37" Sony's do not use the S-PVA panels used on most of their other 32" and 40" + sets. They use AUO panels which IMHO are nowhere near as good as the S-IPS, ASV and IPS-Alpha Panels used by other top brands for their 37" models.

PS BillyHey is correct this TV deownscales 1080i to fit.

These comments almost made my day.

The answer is of course no, on the basis that they aren't big companies any more, as they have gone out of business.

If BT go out of business, you won't need to worry about the telephone helpline as most people won't be able to make or receive a phone call. And before you say you could use a mobile, this may be so but the Dabs helpline aren't receiving their calls on them.

:roll:

Why would you need to downscale a 1080i signal to fit on a TV with this resolution? I was always under the impression that interlaced meant that only actually 50% of the image was discplayed in one go at any one time, so in theory, your only seeing 540 lines in one go. How does that not fit on a panel with more? :whistling:

Depends which method of deinterlacing. If it's just using bob deinterlacing on video-origin stuff, you'll have 1920*540 interlaced frames, and will upscale the vertical, downscale the horizontal. If it's smarter, it'll be deinterlaced to 1920*1080 via motion analysis, then downscaled in both dimensions.

For film material it should always reconstruct the original 1920*1080, and downscale both.This is particularly easy on PAL material, so really shouldn't be an issue for anything but the cheapest models.
