    I would really appreciate it if somebody could clear this up for me. I recently got married, and as a wedding present received a Samsung Plasma TV. I am really pleased with it, but am trying to work out if it is HD Ready. At first, I suspected it wasn't, as it doesn't have a HD Ready logo on the front. The stand has an HDMI logo on it, although I know that doesn't mean that it will display in full HD. However looking at these forums some people are saying that it is HD Ready. The info on the sticker on the back states:

    Model: PS-42S5H

    Model Code: PS42S5HX/XEU

    Type No: PC42P5

    At the moment I don't have any equipment that outputs in HD, but am considering getting Sky HD, but don't want to do that until I know whether my TV is capable of displaying it properly.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Thanks for clearing that up. I was doubting the fact that it is HD Ready due to the absence of the logo on the front. I thought all manufacturers were putting that on TV's, including some other Samsungs I have seen.

    I don't think many TVs I've seen have a logo - maybe a sticker in the shop
