Views on which of these 2 Philips tv's


Distinguished Member
Just had sky HD Installed and decided to uprgrade from Philips 37" 2 channel Ambilight to a 42" version. The one thing I have made my mind up on is to upgrade to a TV with Ambilight, my two options are

42" (LCD WXGA 1366 x 768P) with 4 channel ambilight or

42" (LCD Full HD Display 1920 x 1080p) with 3 channel ambilight

Any views

Given that all UK HD broadcasts are 1080i and it looks like all HD-DVD/Blu-ray are 1080p then if you have the cash go for the 1080 panel assuming it allows 1080p input and has similar contrast/refresh rates etc.
It's not unknown for smaller panels at least on paper to have more favourable specs in some areas.
