Gurus, can anyone highlight me on the Samsung Plasma PS43E400U1R. It seems to be a good deal. a 43' plasma for 35k. the only issue seems to be the resolution, which is given on the website as 852*480. Can a tv really have such a low resolution. my galaxy note itself has a HD screen. with such low resolution how would the pictures look.

The TV is 1011mm wide including frame. If you deduct say 25mm from each side for frame, screen is 961mm wide. Horizontal resolution is 852, which means each pixel is more than 1mm wide. Moreover 852*480 is lower than even SD. There is no way picture is going to look good in a screen of this physical size and low resolution, irrespective of view distance. No wonder the price is so low. Should be good for airport flight information display, but definitely not for images: moving or static.

This is a TV's which is not Full HD (19201080). I am not surprised by the pricing as it is not a Full HD TV. You can have a look at the clarity and decide - do not decide based on just reviews online - as they may be old.

A similar resolution i.e. * X 480 plasma tv from LG 32 inch (yes it was 32, even I belived only searching it on internet) was offered to my causin here in Mumbai 3-4 years back by one of his acquaintance through someone from LG and he reffered to me to whether to buy. His viewing distance was 4 to 9 feet and mostly SD content. I had adviced him not to go for it as it was a failed attempt by LG.
It should have at least 1366 X 768.

In this regard it should be noted that viewing distance plays a very important role: closer viewing distance requires higher pixel density. Visual clarity is inversely proportional to distance.

Your Galaxy Note has about 240 pixels per inch, and is viewed at about 1' distance. A 42" Full HD TV has about 52 pixels per inch horizontal resolution, can be comfortably viewed at 10' distance. The TV you are refering to has about 23 pixels per inch. On the other hand a Full HD 65" TV will have about 35 pixels per inch. But then a TV of that size is not expected to be viewed at 10' distance.

Thanks Guite. I have been throughly spoilt by my Sony Bravia kdl32ex720, which has a 32' display and a full HD panel. I have also been spoilt by watching full HD content through my asus o play and HD ready content from my airtel HD. I guess i should stick to full HD or at least HD ready panels.

Default re: The TV Thread - LCD, Plasma, LED etc.

I have been considering to buy the panny UT50 50" incher, however there seem to be no stocks. THL50EM5D is an alternative, however it is an LED, all i need is a 50 incher, which has smudge free blacks and less lag to hook my PS3 and the hathway HD box.
Is the 50 inch Panny LED a good option or should i wait for any news on the plasma lineup for 2013?
3D, youtube and the likes, are features i dont care about, any suggestions?

@ RajanPrash the Samsung plasma that you have opted for PS43E400U1R is just a cheap TV to be honest. I honestly think the better option would be a Samsung Plasma PS43D490. I got the TV last year and trust me if you get this TV for a bargain like 40k or less, pick it up, calibrate it and enjoy

50UT50 is available on Infibeam for Rs. 72000 with free HT. Is that a good offer?

Depends on which HT they are giving. If its a mid range 5.1 model then go for it! The shop where i bought 42UT50 also quoted 72K for 50UT50

Just got a quote from Panasonic Store for Plasma 50' GT series for Rs.98k with 3d glasses (chargeable) + Installation & Delivery + 3 year warranty

My query is - somewhere there is a mention that Panasonic Plasma is going to be discontinued. Just am unable to make up my mind.

Also - is this a good cost for the TV? or should I look at another brand altogether.

Help me make up my mind. Please

@saildrive: I think it is a very good price. Please share some details of the dealer.
Is this model available in ready stock?

Just few days back a Panasonic representative in a retail chain (does panasonic post their representative in retail shops) said shortage is because Panasonic is shifting their plant from Malaysia to some other place. Can anybody confirm.
Only X series were available and on request quoted 63900 for 42UT50 after telephonic conversation with someone but not confident about availability. 42XT50 was for 50k last.
