No 1080P if you want to get the best from a PS3 for example. I will look around for similar offers.

No, Vistron sounds like a LIDL brand- £360 is expensive for a brand like that

Plus tbh now that 1080p lcd are cheap id opt for that - i only went for 1366x 768 as a decent 1080p set was about £700 for a 32
They are about £500 now but not at 37inch size
Best go for this samsung 37inch

didnt think 1080i or 1080p mattered on smaller screens the difference wouldn,t be noticed IMHO. Think its become more noticable on 46"+ but 1080p is the way to go


1080i is considered to be an HDTV video mode. 1080 stands for 1080 lines of vertical resolution. The term implies a horizontal definition of 1920 pixels, so we can say that 1080i TVs have a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, or about 2.07 million pixels. The programming broadcasted today by most of TV broadcasters has a maximum of 480 visible lines of detail so you can get an idea of the image quality produced by 1080i sources with more than double the visible lines (up to 1080).
The letter at the end of 1080i describes the type of scan the television uses to display the picture. “i” stands for interlaced. That means the picture is scanned in two passes, or “fields,” each lasting 1/60th of a second. The first pass fills in the odd numbered lines, leaving the even numbered lines blank, which are filled in by the second pass. Because each field takes 1/60th of a second, and there are two of them, 1080i actually needs 1/30th of a second to convey a full frame. Because human vision works by retaining images for a brief period of time on the eye’s retina, the interlace scan process makes two separate scans of an image appear as one frame.


1080p (or True HD) is the next step up on the scale of TV resolutions and it’s certainly the best resolution you can get on a TV (at this moment in time).
1080p also provides a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, but that’s where the similarities with 1080i stop. The letter “p” at the end of 1080p stands for “progressive”. This means that the picture is scanned in a single pass (rather than in two passes with interlaced formats), which makes for a smoother, cleaner image, especially with sports and other motion-intensive content.

Read some of the reviews for this TV on the ebuyer site.

While the TV seems OK people say the remote is awful.

It also seems to have only one Scart socket which may become very restricting if you want to plug two scart devices in (Sky and DVD player for example).

Also, from the picture the black surround looks huge and I think would dominate.

Like dandoc2, I would say dont go for one of these cheap brands, go for a quality brand like Toshiba, Samsung, Panasonic etc.

Why not wait till Xmas. I bought my Toshiba flat screen TV on Boxing Day last year from Currys and it was £100 off (I know it was reduced because I had seen the same TV in other shops at the higher price before xmas).

How about this 37" Toshiba from Currys for £399.


I have not checked for stock, nor read any reviews, but if you can get a 37" Toshiba for £399 that has got to be a good deal.
