Thats because there is no difference in 480p/720p video when its blown up to lager resolutions. There are only x number of pixles, "up-conversion" is just a fancy name for "stretch to fit".

The problem is not what the monitor is or is not capable of. The issue is the infrastructure. Hell there are still non HD cameras in use that they try and upconvert in an HD broadcast.

Do you really think the same companies that have been draggind their feet to switch to Digital are going to run out and purchase all new equipment in the next 5, 10, or 15 years to support much higher resolutions? Remember the switch to Digital was supposed to have taken place years ago and it still is not final.

Remember stations are not required to go to HD they are only required to switch to digital.

Plus purchasing a TV now for something that may happen in 8 years is not an effective use of money. The technology will be better and cheaper by that time.

Purchase the TV that is right for you based on your needs and facts not on hyperbole or what you think might actually happen.

I respectfully disagree. NTSC looks like shit, no matter what, and it's not just about lines of resolution. I've messed around enough with NLE's and computer generated HD video production to say that with authority. Show me any source, and I'll tell you the difference.

Interesting that something becomes junk once a company buys is directly from Samsung. It wasn't junk when it was inside the Samsung, but it is when it's inside anything else. Fucking genius.

Forgot to mention that it's 120Hz and uses the same processor as the Samsung LNT-71F series tv's did. Yeah, really shitty product that was.

Erm, no...Samsung is junk too. Sorry if I've offended anyone. Nothing wrong with junk, per se, if it makes you happy; just don't try to con people into thinking it's "high end" or that the fact they can get it sub-$1000 makes it a "great value". It isn't.


Oh, and fuck off. (No offense intended, this is my thing lately)
