need for 1080p is dependent on:
-how big the tv is
-how far you sit
If you are not watching BluRay, etc, it doesn't matter. Hi-def TV is not 1080p btw. I don't know the tv's specs, but I would guess that it accepts 1080i and converts that to 720p (or 768p) etc.
- 50" tv
- how far do you sit
- how good is your vision
- are you going to use Bluray
I believe ISF rates resolution as only #5 or so, in regards to the particular abilities of any tv. Contrast, black level, color accuracy, color saturation, IIRC are all more important. 1080p is one of the most overrated things, at least for the typical sized tv's that many people buy.
And I would guess a good 720p is still always better than a crappy 1080p. I've seen both (probably the tv's video processor). GL.
I am pretty much set on getting this television, but I am still trying to figure out if I would get a better picture by getting a television that is 1080p. From what I have read, it seems this television packs one of the best pictures available because of the level of blackness it produces. Also, I have read on a couple of sites that this television is a 720p, but I have seen other sites listing it as a 1080i. Does anyone know what this television really is or if there would be an improved picture by getting a 1080p plasma?
