If a 40 and 46 have the sam amount of pixals does this undermine the quality?
At first the decision was between the 40hx853 and the 42GT50 and the GT was successful. After having the TV a week I had to return it as the set was buzzing. I had noticed that others made comments about this on forums and I resigned the problem to a faulty set. I have since been told that plasma’s do buzz and I found this very noticeable given that the house is very quite. The GT50 was located between the side of the chimney breast and the bay window so the sound probably projects forward more because it can not disburse sideways. We sit about 2.6 metres from the TV with a wall directly behind us. Any programme sound or general back ground noise like the oven or washing machine or any light noise would mask the buzz, but in the evening when everything is quite I found myself anticipating the buzz. I watch a lot of programmes like House and doc’s where there is time with no TV audio with whites in the picture.
So the decision was to go 40hx853 or go up to the 46 and I really wish that thought wasn’t in my head. At 2.6 metres am I too close for SD? I use HD and Blu ray too. My concerns are, everyone states that plasmas have the better colour and I do not want to buy a big LCD set and see defects exaggerated on the larger screen. Am I being paranoid? but if both sets have the same amunt of pixals does this not undermine the larger screen? Is this controlled by the viewing distance?
Thoughts are 40HX or as I an now considering a 46 the sony has the award but what others are recommended just for image quality forgeting the stand, apps, widgets and athestics.
What Hifi Team, on TV reviews why is it no longer possible to filter using the screen size option?
