Hd ready meh

hot man

does it have hdmi...?

Just got this on Tuesday from best buy £190 delivered after cashback, it has 2 hdmi and i am using it with a ps3/ 360 and picture and sound are fine, bargain.The usb port also charges a PS3 controller
And the set has a game mode for consoles not advertised in specs but can confirm it does have this feature.

Does the usb port allow divx movie playback or just Photos?

LOL 997 remaining.

Yeah sorely lacking 1080p.

It's £40 more expensive direct form ebuyer. With ebay fees they are probably selling it for £60 less profit. Also quidco via ebay

Seems like a great deal. Have some heat

its teh same price on their website... just got the email today

Get it from best buy, new and cheap + cashback.

Go to amazon and search for 32bv500 for reviews.

Everyone who is complaining about the lack of 1080p.. it's a different price range, people who want to spend this much expect it to be 720p. Also there isn't that much difference between 1080p and 720p if you are using a 32" and have some distance between you and the screen.

I got this TV this week from Best Buy too.

It does play AVI's off a USB. However, I found it to be hit and miss which USB sticks it played off.

They have to be fat32 and not NTFS. The only one I could get to work was a 16gb Sandisk Cruzer Blade USB Stick.

Other than that a very good TV for the price.

No it's not - £239.98 on ebuyer.com. I think you received their eBay emailer.

Bought one of these through the offer posted earlier via Best Buy at £203.99 (with code) and must say very impressed with it. No it's not full HD but given I'm only using it in the bedroom its more than adequate. Picture quality is very good as is sound. The built-in media player is better than having nothing but I find it's a little pickey on the types of video files it will play so will be sticking to using my western digital media player but if you have no media player currently it's better than nothing !

Clearly shows how little you know about this issue.

Thanks OP, I missed out on the BestBuy deal the other day due to pondering whether I should buy it or not, so gone for it this time. Bought as a late mothers day/early birthday present for my mum- I'm sure she wouldn't care about 1080p, unless you're sitting 2 foot from it I doubt it'd make much difference anyway.

Very good deal, still more than 500 left!

hardly anything broadcast in 1080 so this would be good for a second room :). HOT

Plus you'd barely tell the diffence 1080 and 720 hd due to the size of the screen. If it was 50" then there would be cause for complaint. Should be great set for the poke.

TV threads are always the same dull chat. "Its not full hd, cold"... if it was 1080 then it would be, "its only 50hz...." then, "its only got 2 hdmi" blah blah...... snore.

It's a 32 inch branded tv at under 200 quid, surely it's a good deal.

It's a good deal.Get an extended warranty on it though.Toshiba LCDs aren't the most reliable.

I might have got lucky, but my 6yr old Toshiba "HD Ready" only is still going strong. Though I must say screen burn in is becoming a bit of a pain of late

Heat added though, good deal

Most HD if not all is broadcast in 1080, 1080i that is, which would take advantage of a 1080p TV.

Someone else who clealry doesn't have a clue in what they are saying, just repeating what they hear.

1080p is 1080p which is 1920 x 1080 and always will be 1920 x 1080. This does not change just because a screen size gets lager or smaller. The difference between 720p and 1080p is the same at 22" as it is at 100" IF SAT AT THE CORRECT DISTANCE FROM BOTH. Screen size alone has nothing to do with resolution, it's screen size in relation to viewing distance.

is this even 720p?

u would notice this more on a larger tv than a smaller one regardless of the distance u are sitting at..

everyone is a HD expert and its not even a proper HD tv

As I can't find the resolution, then yes, one has to assume that it is 720p as it is HD Ready and not 768p (1366 x 768). Why would you question this?

No you wouldn't. TV size alone has NOTHING to do with resolution. The difference is the same be it at 22" as it is at 100". Making a TV bigger does not magically mean resolution looks better. Saying this clearfly shows how little you know on the subject, yet you still post it making other people believe it.

You mean like you?

What's even funnier is the fact you say that and then get something wrong that is only 12 words long.

As this is a HD ready TV, then yes, this is a 'proper' HDTV. With HD standing for High Defention and 720p being a High Defenition resolution, what would make you suggest the above?

Do you think this is a 'fake' HDTV?

Yeah, a 19" and 32" screen both with a resolution of 1920x1080 would both have the same number of pixels. But think about it, which screen would the pixels be denser (pixels per inch).
The 19" screen of cause, so in theory the 19" should produce a sharper and clearer image. But while the 32 screen the pixels will be less compact, the human eye will find it hard to be able to differentiate the different pixels, especially in a moving image. But if the screen was as big as 100" you would probably be able to see the different pixels. Kind of like when you zoom in an image or video you start to see squares (pixels.)

I think he or she means do you class 720p as HD, as some people don’t class it as real HD.

I did actually think about doing the same thing.
But I thought I rather do something constructive instead.

Which is were viewing distance comes in. If you can see the pixels on a 100" screen, then you are sat to close to it.

There is no such thing as 'real' HD. Both 720p and 1080p are HD resolutions with 1080p being better. Anyone who thinks 720p is not HD, just don't listen to them because quite clearly they don't know what they are talking about.

You can argue the toss all day, but with the s**t freeview picture that the majority of the people who buy this TV will watch, it makes not a flying f**k of difference.

I never said it would, I was simply correcting someone, also is there any need to swear?

Why's everyone getting their knickers in a twist? If you sit close to the tv you'll notice the difference, if you sit a mile away from the TV you won't, it's as simple as that. As posted in the other thread by csiman :

http://s3.carltonbale.com/resolution_chart.png

The best viewing distance for a 32" TV is around 8 foot, referring to the chart at that distance you won't notice much difference between 720/1080p. I doubt many people sit within 4 foot of their 1080p 32" TV!

Anyway... who cares? it's £200...
