    "480i, 480p, 720p, 1080p signal compatibility "

    wonder what that means exactly?

    to the point:
    i've only seen a handful capable of producing 1080p... mine is but i've yet to see it at that resolution because nothing is that high except i guess blu/dvdhd

    i dobut you're going to have much selection of 1080p or i for that matter for that small of an lcd, price and size. is there much selection in rear projection / ihdla or whatever the hell it is? to even consider the alternative?

    i do like the westinghouse tv's and a friend has one... she's had no problems so far... i was going to buy one... i read online they were 'cheaper' but that could of just been dudes like me that paid more for our tv's... so i like that samsung, they are nice for sure!

    so basically your saying that i would need to find a tv that will accept all modes of res such as 480i, 280p, 720p and 1080i to be a decent TV for PS3?
    I've seen some TV's that say they have 720p but nothing about the other res... then see some TV's that only list res as 1366x768 and so forth..
    all this res talk really takes some thought and gets a little confusing at times.


    and about that samsung, that indeed is a VERY nice tv for what im thinking of using it for, however i've called EVERYWHERE they dont stock it. Even called Samsung directly and they said " well its a 2006 model.. but i cant seem to find any retailers that sell it.. and i cant tell you if we still make it or produce it because i just dont know"

    I've found a few on ebay brand new and came to this:
    $898.00 shipped
    -$300.00 since that is what i was offered to sell my current tv to someone for
    + $119.00 for a 3 year warranty from squaretrade.
    comes to $717.00 (I dont think thats too bad for it with a 3 year warranty)

    well all i'm saying is the whole point of high def gaming is the fact that the signal is 1080... if you have a 1080 tv it will scale down to 480 and 720 and if you have a 720 tv it'll scale to 480... which is what normal TV and Dvd's are... i've never seen anything in 720, but i'm sure its out there and the tv is capable. I don't honestly know why some put resolutions and some dont... i always thought it was if the TV had a VGA connector for a computer and it was just listing the optimal resolution???

    i know samsung is quality, over those other non-name brands is it probably the right choice and think it would be a baller tv for sure...
    fuck the bullshit

    )

    there is a difference in 720p & 768p
    one has a resolution of 1280 x 720
    the other is 1366 x 768

    did you ever look @ the Samsung Slimfi?
    the 27" is pretty reasonable & its CRT so its not a fixed pixel & will do 1080 & its a little smaller & lighter then a normal CRT. talk to hannibal...he got one on ebay from some guy here in western PA (display model) really cheap...but even new they are very reasonable. $400-$800 on ebay. the only bad thing is i don't think the 27" comes in 16:9 (widescreen) only the 30" does.

    downsides are usually the speakers when everything else is nice... my TV's downsides are the speakers too... but i watch movies or tv through a reciever if i want to anyway... so it's not really a big deal.

    is the westinghouse 1080 as well?

    samsung dual HDMI > *

Walmart ahs a 52" RCA HDTV that costs the same as the 1st Samsung...it's not a Flat Panle ofcourse....It's a regular floor standing projection HDTV....It cost $894. I'm lookin into that one myself............Also u may want to hold off a bit on getting a TV...Walmart is drastically lowering prices on TV's here very soon
