Is a 1080p HD TV really worth buying?

With a new generation of 'higher' definition TVs becoming available, consumers in the UK are facing a new HDTV buying dilemma. Do you opt for an affordable 720p resolution (1280 x 720 pixel) HD set now? Or one of the new breed of cutting-edge 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixel) screens?

In short: is a 1080p HD TV really worth buying?

i say..... thats a pretty damn nice tv! lol i bet you was waiting for me to say no wasnt you ;)

With the looming next era of tv's in the future....
720p is gonna be cheaper and truly just as vivid as 1080p.

novaIS3504571d ago

totally disagree..You need a 1080p set in order to see the difference. You are right about the price though, although your 720p is vivid as 1080p comment is false.

what a stupid question... yes! Whoever says no must be an xbox fanboy... 720 is the sweet spot....

well unfortinatly for me mine does have HDMI so i dont know if that supports 1080p but with using component HD my tv only supports up to 1080i/720p but still looks amazing in 1080i so i really cant wait to see what these next gen tvs look like, i think there called "Ultra High Definition" or something. maybe something for the Xbox 720/ PS4?

Lol I don't know if that Ultra-Hi Def is going to be available to the average consumer anytime in the near future, actually anytime this decade. Without compression those vids take up like 120 GB per second. And with compression it was still like 250 something MB. All I'm saying is that from what I read the technology hasn't caught up with it yet.

I mean if you can afford a 1080p tv then go for it the display is great but if you can't 720p really isnt that bad in fact its pretty damn good considering most games are made for 720p anyway.
