40" - 100Hz - £599.99 + vat, so... £704.99.
theres a toshiba 43" with those specs in argos for 699.99, also, another guy has shown me a link toa sony 42" for 649.99. here you go:
jamesvtidohc - Hi mate
The Toshiba that you link to is a nice set, but 4*3
And the Sony is an ex-demo... just so everyone knowa
ahhhh didnt see the sony was a ex-demo. prob gone by now!
as with the toshiba one, did you mean its 4:3?
personally, i prefer 4:3, not keen on widescreen as they looked stretched out and people look more fatter than they are but then again, so ive been told, youve got to have widescreen before you get used to it which i havent. still though, toshiba is on the cards to get for me anyway
by the way, hello to you too mate
Sounds like a setup issue and someone has displayed the image incorrectly.
nope, a few friends of mine have widscreens in their house. correctly set up but i just dont like it.
Don't listen to them. A widescreen TV never HAS to show a stretched picture. If it does, you've set it up wrong.
Your description suggests they are not set up correctly.
hmmmm maybe stretched is not the word i meant, but if you put a 4:3 tv next to a widescreen one, you can see the difference, i probably havent explained myself properly so sounds a bit dodgy. there is a difference to me anyway.
they should show exactly the same image if its a WS set displaying a 4:3 image you get black side bars, just like the letterbox when watching a WS source on a 4:3 set... If it fills both screens one is using a zoom or fill function and hence artificailly distorting picture i reckon 70% + TV's are not setup correctly or wired for best PQ........Probably more...I mean why spean £20 on a scart when you get the RF lead in the box??????
i know what your saying but it just looks different to me having the same picture filling the screen correctly. its probably me, its just that ive never sat down for longer than 5 mins and watched anything on a widescreen tv, but i do notice a difference.
