Nice looking TV Eviltwin I'm just going to add the price & brand to the thread title.

A warm welcome to HotUKDeals!

If it ain't 1080p you are sooo going to kick yourself in a couple of years time.

People are calling 1080p True HD.

Its available for less than that, and is a very good value set. TBH probably a better deal than this one, 1080p resolution with a 1:1200 contrast ratio (against the tosh's 1:800)

this isnt a TRUE 1080p screen guys

Yes but no stock for me at Dixons so I went with Sharp.

this is where I wish I kept my original post. True 1080p is an unnecessary expense, Sky and Freeview will never support 1080p because it costs too much to broadcast. You wont be able to stream 1080p over the net for years yet because broadband is too slow. Downloading a 1080p show would take a LONG time

The only devices that will support 1080p are Blu-Ray and HD-DVD. The chances of either format taking off are looking slim at the moment, consumers are wary of buying the wrong format and IPTV is getting closer and closer.
I know that i personally would rather have AppleTV or similar device that can download a film and play it in 720p (upscaled to 1080p by my TV) than have to go down to the shops for a more expensive 1080p DVD

Its going to be a battle of quality vs convenience, and given that the quality option is significantly more expensive i can see convenience winning out

Also apart from the obvious data limits on current broadcasting systems, do remember 1080p is only really noticable over 1080i on incredibly large screens 50 inch plus. Projectors running 1080p are stunning, but they fire out a huge viewing area. You might find techies being able to spot the difference on screens under 50 inches, but to most of us, they will look very similar IMHO.
