Do any of you have issues using your ps3 on a 720 tv? i read a review and it said something weird happened with their 720 tv and i was just wondering if any of you had this issue too? i am debating on a new tv and plan to get a ps3 when i get the tv which is why i wonder?

here are the tv's im debating on.
they are cheap but i dont really want to spend too much right now

there is only $100 difference between the two and just wondering if i should spend the extra?(im leaning towards yes)

I've been running my ps3 on a 720P plasma for 2 years. No issues at all. Get the 1080P tv being that it's only a 100 dollar difference. THey actually do make a few games in 1080P plus the blu rays are 1080P

i have actually heard that about tvs up to that size. and yeah im a fanboy of samsung tv's. i absolutely love my parents 42" plasma.

so i should just spend the extra and get the lcd? im a bit worried about pixelation(spelling?) which is another reason im considering plasma and i also feel plasma can at times have a smoother picture than lcd.

I use a PS3 on a 30" samsung CRT on 720p. It looks nice.
I can't see well enough to notice the difference between 480p and 1080p.

Brian_smith06
12-01-2008, 09:59 PM
ok so either way i'll be fine? i should probaby just spend the extra 100 though just to have the ability i guess?

Yes. However, can you still get that TV at $799?

1080p regardless games that say 1080p on ps3 are usually in 720p anyways. For a true hd gaming experience get a 1080p lcd and a xbox 360. On the other hand if you are gonna watch blurays then the ps3 is the best deal. I bought a 360 for gaming and a ps3 strictly for blu ray.

blueray is actually the reason i really want a ps3 plus i love gran turismo and can only get it on there. however forza looks pretty promising

When you think of a regular television set, that is a crt. The one with the big backside (old computer monitors)

By the way, I would say sony makes the best lcd and plasmas. Samsung is probably the best deal! I would say its the second best. Great picture but the sound isn't as good as sonys. When I was shopping around I did alot of research, I was looking at a samsung and my sony bravia. After playing with the volumes I went with the sony. It cost more but was worth it in my opinion.

i didn't read this thread, but 1080p, and 1080i are noticeably different than 720p, get 1080p!!!!!!

1080i is not equal to 720p. 1080i is better than 720p.

also while 1080p is technically better than 1080i, i guarantee that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference if you looked at the two side by side. and if you did notice a difference between two different sets the resolution wouldn't be the difference.

and there are quite a few reasons that CRT tv's still beat all the expensive LCD tv's.

im not buying for the sound they produce. i have a ht for that. also bravia's are nice tv's but i have heard that they are returned a lot for warranty work.

not arguing with you on them being nice though. i do like the picture and they do produce a descent sound for a flat panel. samsungs sound like a tin can

trust me, i did all the research, especially on my specific tv.

1080i>720p
it's as simple as 1080 being more pixels than 720.

CRT>LCD : http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=960548&highlight=crt+lcd

yes this is true but the human eye can not tell.

and 1080 is better than 720 simply because its a high resolution. no arguing about that.

i agree, i can tell a huge difference between the too as far as color, speed is a different story.

What? It depends more on your screen but a 1080i picture has more data than a 720p simply because of the pixel resolution. Put the progressive picture will appear to be a bit smoother, but that depends a lot on the TV and its processing.

My Elite isn't 1080p native (42" PRO-940HD) but it will still accept a 1080p direct signal and it looks great. But, it annoys me because my brothers TV looks better, PDP-5010FD 50" Pioneer Kuro. :rolleyes:

I would defiantly op to go with the TV that has the 1080p native resolution. The less converting digital has to go through the better. But, with a TV under 42" either will work just fine.

First of all 720P isn't the same as 1080I (Also 1080P isn't the best picture) (For TV's yes for now.)

720P is 720 lines as 1080I is two sets of 540 lines... hence the I (Interlaced)

Another thing Sony doesn't make plasmas.

...so when I put in my game that says its 1080p, hit info on my tv and it says 1920x1080p that means its only 720p?! OMG?! :rolleyes:

The only "TRUE HD" edge the xbox 360 has is the ability to stream HD movies from Netflix...

I am right now streaming a Netflix movie on my PS3. ;)

Plus I don't have to pay extra money to be a member of live, I just aquire a program run it on my computer and bam Netflix, Hulu, ESPN, etc on my PS3.

As far as I know, Sony doesn't currently make a consumer Plasma display. Not sure why they make a commercial one either.



Just a side note. I prefer Runco or Pioneer Elite TVs over Sony's. And I like the sony's.
