time to go projector 80-100inches..la.. you already got HD42 plasma, so even if you get a new 42" kuro, you won't get a "new" toy effect... cos your eyes have "been there done that"..just deeper blacks, but same ol 42" size picture effect..

u cant really say old model , its the current model in msia, as the replacement aint here yet biggrin.gif

yes, it has 1024 X 768 only, same as pioneer 42 inches plasma, but its HD alrite, eve though the maths doesnt add up

how does it fare? hmmm, for tat price, i must say its good
but..... since u are willing to fork out abt rm 5k for a 42 incher.. whynot got projector? for 5 k u shud be able to have the projector and screen and has sizes up to 100" anytime

My main use for it will be for PS3 games and only sometimes (i mean really sometimes) for blu-ray movie...most of the time only anime watching via DLNA from PC.

So getting a Projector is a bit inappropriate...coz I think a projector won't be able to 'tahan' my gaming session that sometimes can stretch up to 8 hours in one sitting..although it may be once a week.

Furthermore my 2nd floor common room isn't that big for a projector anyway.....and I think the price for PV70 the last time I saw at Jusco was only aabout 4599 I think..and that's before any discount...and my current target is the 32D300a...which is priced at around 3800...top up only about 800 can get a 42 incher plasma already...

but I'm worried bout the contrast and resolution...as I remember for plasma...we really need to control the amount of light in the room...the darker the better they say...

Will those HD ready 32" LCD TV sets, priced from RM2300 to 2999, able to accept PS3 HDMI inputs with 1080i/p with downscaling? OR will it just display it in 720p instead?

32" LCD TV with 1366*768 resolution... can they display 1920*1080 after downscaling?

32" Full HD was released some time ago

But it's just that we don't have it in Malaysia only. We have sub-standard LCD TV in this dumping ground. vmad.gif
