720 vs 1080p LCD HDTV

Postby NatalieLucy » Sat Nov 22, 2008 9:04 pm

I was looking at a 32" 720 LCD HDTV in the BF sales I have a budget of $500 but now I'm wondering about the 1080p if theres a big enough difference in quality to go over my budget. What are people's thoughts.

If you can afford the 1080p, I would go for that instead as long as you're going above 40 inches or so.

As you could see in other posts as well as the article about tv's that was posted, with the smaller sizes of tv's there isn't a need to have a 1080. You really should read the article in the articles section of the site.

absolutely zero need for 1080 at 32" it doesnt become a factor until around 40" depending on your viewing distance.

Yeah our viewing distance is about 10 feet, so there's no need for the 1080p at around 32"

We have a 50" plasma Pioneer Kuro and we went with the 720 and sit about 12 feet away and it looks good! I couldn't afford the 1080. :(

If you want it for a computer monitor (it's possible...), every pixel counts! :wink:

People disregards 720p sets today, however they don't have the intention to buy a BD DVD player, so what's the point in buying a more expensive set (1080p) if all they're going to watch are HD broadcasts that only transmits 720p or 1080i or upconverted movies that are 480p? :roll:

I have a 1080p set, I can see the "grid" is smaller than a 720p but once I'm watching a movie I can't see the difference.

Can dvds that play on a 720p look just as good as Blueray or is Blueray a lot better. ?

Blue Ray is a lot better but an upconverting dvd player still looks pretty good on a good set.

Ok cool well I just recently bought a hdmi converting DVD recorder not long ago so hoping it'll look pretty decent with a good set.
