Only if it is viewed from the correct distance and height, which probably 70-80% of people don't, just look at how many people hang them above a fireplace and/or sit six meters across the room away.
We have a Panasonic 50" Full HD plasma in the lounge for Blu-ray and MySky HDi with couches at 8 feet away, and a 42" Panasonic HD ready in the bedroom at 5 meters away from the bed being fed MySky HDi as well, no need for Full HD there at that distance.

clevedon: Hyundai / DSE says it all.


A DSE 1080p panel is still going to be better than any branded 1024x768 panel IMO 


You are forgetting about all the processing that goes on in a tv.  I would pit my Pioneer 42" 1024 x 768 against the DSE any day.

this was exactly on my mind before i purchase my pioneer 1024x768

but i after i bought it, i have no regret what so ever, especially after being able to compare it with other brands of tv (friends got panasonic, sony and samsung) and it is no contest, even before calibration

my sitting position from my pio 50" is about 3.5m and the same distance with the pio 43". picture always as sharp as ever with fluid motion, no smearing no blurring nothing

my 2c

You get out of a TV what you put into it,

Put 576lines into a 1080p TV it will look average

Put 576lines into a 720p TV it will look very similar @ 3-4 meters (but can see the lines when get close)

Put 1080lines into a 1080p TV it will look sick

Put 1080lines into a 720p TV it will still look better than anything we have ever been used to anyway! ie broadcast and DVD quality.

720p is fine for folks wanting a new HD TV and at sub $1000 you can't go wrong!


The other thing is as some have stated I would pick a 720p TV with decent motion processing over a 1080p TV with crap processing anyday.
