    hi
    just recently my friend bought a 26" toshiba lcd and he said that it wasnt 1080p. i then asked him why he didnt get a 1080p one. he then said that you cannont buy a tv smaller than 32" which is 1080p. this suprised me due to the fact that i have a 21".6 umc lcd which is 1080p. is my tv a fake 1080p?
    i doubt it because i bought it from comet, so can some one tell me who is right, me or my friend.

    thanks

    Hi,

    You are right. Your friend if wrong.

    You're right. You can buy smaller sets with 1080p. Most people generally don't think they're available as they reckon you won't see the difference between 720p and 1080p which I don't believe since I have a 17" laptop with a 1920x1200 screen and certainly see the difference from 720p.

    Laptops/computer monitors and televisions are a completely different ballgame. A computer monitor will be viewed from a foot and a half away, a television, much further. Also, dealing with video signals other than things like text and stuff makes a big difference to what your eyes can pick up. Also bear in mind that video signals are all standard resolutions, so ideally you want a set that complies to those, that decent scaling for higher resolution sets is sadly rare, high resolution small panels are either terrible or expensive...

    In general, it is a fact that resolution is one of the least important specifications for a good picture on a television.

    So you're both right, in a roundabout sort of way.

    Sorry, I should have said - that's for video too. I watch a lot of bluray and 720p series on my laptop and you can tell the difference on the 17" and from a good distance too. I also have a 40" TV and can tell the difference on that too. I know a lot of people say it is negligable so each to their own but I certainly see the difference.
