LCD TV that does well for SD broadcasts


Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I'm looking around for a LCD panel for living room and master bedroom. Need not get a full HD panel as I don't watch that much DVDs, much less BR or HD-DVD. Currently, I am pretty keen on the Sharp PX5 series.

 

Any suggestions on which LCD panels are good to get, and also do well for normal TV broadcasts as well?

 

TIA!

I had just bought a Bravia D series and using the Starhub digital box.

 

Is it true certain channel signal is "Stronger" resulting in better PQ ?

 

I found tat the PQ fron HBO was very good..."almost better than DVD". The image is super clear and very "real life" ( almost have a 3D effect).

I dun noe how to describe it....but if u guys had ever watched or sampled those soap opera shown on Tv 5 yrs ago,

I believed u will noticed the PQ is very different from conventional programe. This phenonmenon was also presence in certain scene on the free to air,,,,saw similar effect while watching "Thomas Crown" on TV5 yesterday nite.

 

Any idea what can cause such difference ?

 

But of cos, certain channels were terrible.....

 

thx.

Have checked out 427XG, 42PV70 and 42PX5 at Courts today.

 

The 427XG indeed has noticeably better PQ, especially for SD broadcasts, compared to the 42PX5. But the reflections were also very evident on the former during dark scenes. This is a concern especially when I have full-height windows on both sides of the TV console.

 

PQ on the PV70 wasn't fantastic but that could be due to the settings on the display set.

 

Am torn in between plasma and LCD now for my living room.  ???

Thks, Pete, for the advice. I had exclude plasmas primarily due to the reflective glare of these panels.

 

do you know CRT was reflective since day 1?

 

did you mind that ? haa..

 

the big CRT in my parent's house was also reflecting the lights from everywhere, but I did not notice until I really want to take note of it...

The best LCD panel I've seen for tv broadcasts is the Philips Pixel Plus 2. Watched in a home setting it's very fluid and plasma like without reflections. The colours are too rich for my liking though.

 

Just make sure you ask for Pixel Plus 2, it's far better than the normal pixel plus series.

Noted and reflection is indeed one of my considerations, for reasons I've stated in my previous post. No need for you to be condescending.

Thanks, will take a look at Philips LCDs as well. Have seen the Samsung R81 but the PX5 seems to do better.
