guidelines are there for you to "kick start". However, we're human, not machine, if you dun like it, dun force yourself to follow the so-called "standards" lor....just get the right combi that suits you

"As a general guideline, if you are getting a HDTV set which is less than 42 inch, you won't be able to notice the resolution difference between a HD Ready set vs a Full HD set. Thus, you will be able to get almost the same visual enjoyment at a lower budget if you buy a HD Ready HDTV (720p) instead."


is the above statement accurate ??? then a HD ready set is more worth it isnt it ??? rather than spending on Full HD ???

Bro
Have you read through this thread at all?
See the post on viewing distance and then after Reading it, you will understand why
If you sit very far away, the benefit of Full HD is negated. READ the posts....

You should get the Full HD model.
No point for 42".

Yes, anything below 50" is waste of money buying a full HD.

Viewing distance is an essntial part of the buying process. Sit too far away and you will be wasting money on a full HD panel. Thats as simple as I can put it. And I already posted that in this forum. If thats too hard to find its here:

If thats still hard to find, then I have nothing more to add.

Completely wrong concept. This type of reply is only from those who aleady bought HD Ready TV. Or sales person in those retail shop trying to sell all the HD Ready stock.

If price is the same, around the same or lower. Always pick a Full HD TV. This is the way it go. You will find the dot pitch is much smaller and almost not noticeable at same view distance. Also it covers about 20%+ more area even you are viewing non HD program.

In the next few months. You are going to see Full HD model even for 32".

Unless you have proof otherwise cscs3, do not decieve others here about full HD panels being always better.

Readers should know that sitting too far away from a panel negates the benefits of a full HD panel. That is a fact.

how many months in exact? 3 months 6 months or 12 months? want to bet 1? It won't be out for the next 6 months for sure, and I seriously doubt it will be available in SG....

actually the panel itself could not be the most important factor. Most of the time, it's the source that you feed in. If you have a full HD source compared to a SD source or 720p source, you maybe able to see much more details even for HD-models. To be more practical, most people can't be bothered about this thing. We dun torture our eyes just to see more details, squeeze more juice out from our TV, it's not like playing with overclocking on your PC or something like that. Watching TV supposed to be a joy......

try that out with some apple quicktime movie trailers with different resolutions............

was thinking if 37" more suitable for bedroom use then i increase my budget...

Last time people use 14" crt in their room.
i think 32 is abt just nice, maybe even 26 can.
Some people use 32 for their living room even.
