Re: The "is it 1080p" conundrum...

Nice definition, but any slightly tech head should know....
Thanks. The problem is that there are lots of non-"tech heads" - and that's who this was written for.

Hense the word even "slightly" like anyone that pays attention to what they are actually buying even.

Everybody has to start somewhere -- and this post seems like one of those good starting points

But a little self educ. never hurts....

Just like those that buy a $20K less car but supposedly just like a super BMW... but in the end isn't.

Buyer should self educate themselves. I actually returned a HDTV misrepresented, as 1080p when actually just an down-converting 720p, 1080i compatible set (still 720 image though )

Took a little back and forth but thank you MacWorld accepting the refusal and for for in the end sucking up the $95 shipping charge too (for full refund), after realizing someone just screwed up in the site prod description... though they had already corrected before even shipped, but never notified me... do you still want this inferior version.

And I know how the mistake likely happened a one letter dif in same model number... old and new the same model but 720 being mod# HD, vs the 1080p being same mod # FHD. (FULL HD)

I already HAD a smaller 720 HD, I wanted a larger true HD 1080p understanding the difference.

And if they do a search maybe this thread will come up and this will be their self education.
Any post with good information is useful. You may know the information, but others don't, so let's let them learn it with out chastising them for not learning it before coming here.

I don't believe I chastised anyone... name calling, etc... though maybe saying all too many do go for the coolness glitz, and low price, over actual researching something they are buying, and then say why is it not right.

My god your amazing. They create a thread with information and you have to jump in and slam it like all the others.

You say people should go out and do research. Well isn't reading this thread research?

But I guess you want people to look else where for information and not here. Unless of course it is you that is giving the information.

Why not just stay out of it.

Another useful thread polluted.

My first post, 3rd in thread is not frame rate related INFO??? Bringing in the motion factors, that go along with it, especially anyone into fast sports, where the 120hz refresh would be important, and why that is even if the broadcast rate is still 60hz. Might be worth the extra state of the art cost.

While cheaper 60hz would be fine for most interested in mostly normal speed things.

Yes hopefully the thread is useful info for those who haven't leaped yet, to cheap (for a reason... being dumped) 720p supposedly 1080 but really just down converting disappointments

Yup, I for one, thought it was an excellent post.
