Help Please, Need a good 37 or 42 Inch TV

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am in the Market for a god 1080P tv. And I need some help with this decision.
I am willing to spend up to 1500 Canadian at the most. I have no idea about the 8 vs 10 bit processing Stuff. So can someone please help a guy out. I am trying to please the wife this decision.
I have heard that a Great 720P is better than a cheap 1080P Tv. Can someone help explain this to me aswell.
And lastly, I would like to find one that has 1:1 Pixel mapping for my XBOX 360, Or does that only matter if the Max Res is higher than the Signal like on my 24 Inch 1920*1200 LCD??
Thanx people. You guys have always come through with some solid advice for the consumer

While I'm unsure about the rest of the post, I've heard that 720P is better than 1080P in that range where the prices kinda overlap. Typically, the cheap 1080Ps are no-name brands that have various problems, and many often have reported horrible customer service while trying to remedy these issues. The 720P that are a bit more pricey are generally excellent, reputable brands where if there is an issue, you can get it fixed without causing a big deal.

In terms of the pixel mapping, I'm just taking a semi-educated guess here, but I'd say the 1:1 would only be necessary if the max res is higher than the signal. To me, it seems like you'd want the image scaled if the signal is higher, that way you can view the whole image. But I'll say again, it's only a semi-educated guess.

Hope I helped (with the 720P/1080P thing at least)!

Good luck in the search.

Once I start working for the summer, I plan on grabbing a new TV as well, and I was thinking of a 37 or 42, since the prices are very nice for them. With 1500 Canadian, you should be able to get a pretty nice one, if the prices are anywhere near as good as they are here. Canadian dollar is still > USD, right? So that's like 1700USD? I haven't paid attention to stuff in a while.
