    went into currys SAW THE 40" lcd Samsung LE40F71B labelled up with 1980 x 1080 resolution and 1080P. I enquired and they were adament that it was a 1080p panel ?!? didint think there were any out and it was £1700 looked well.

    then read the manual which stated 1080p ?? :confused:


    if it is, then i probably buy one TBH

    Be wary , some manufacturers specify 1080p in specs sheets , where the p stands for pixels.lol
    Philips also do this.

    The set you are referring to IS 1080p and will take 1080p inputs via HDMI and I think VGA/Comp.

    No digital tuner so when analogue is turned off the internal tuner will be useless.

    You might say you don't need it because you have satellite or cable but when analogue is turned off there will be more digital channels.

    Also if you are recording something via satellite you could be watching an over the air channel.

    You could buy a freeview box but you'd need to make sure you have an RGB scart free as most tv's seem to only offer 1 full scart and 1 half scart.

    p doesn't stand for pixels. :rolleyes:

    They specify it as 1080p because correctly any 1920x1080 LCD does output 1080p, however in reality what most customers want to know is whether the screen can ACCEPT 1080p, which is where they're not exactly up front about.

    this is an awsome set. It definately is 1080p and can accept it through, HDMI, VGA and componant! they are just about to release an update that allows it to do 1.1 pixel mapping through HDMI too.
